a 1968 one: In January 2009 at the Barret Jackson Auto Auction, a re-bodied, silver four-speed Yenko reportedly sold for $121,000.
1969 Yenko: A total of 201 cars were sold in 1969, and 40 years later sold for well over $2.2 million USD at Barrett-Jackson auctions.

From what I can tell, the Buick Wildcat is the 1962 one (first year of production). Total Wildcat production in 1962 was a modest 2,000 units. In 1962 the Wildcat was a Buick Invicta subseries, mating the Invicta's longer full-size two-door hardtop Buick body (known as the "sport coupe," body production code 4647) with a high-performance 325 hp (242 kW) version of the 401 cu in (7 l) Nailhead V8, known as the Wildcat 445 for producing 445 lbft (603 Nm) of torque. To further distance itself from the Invicta, the Wildcat had Electra 225-like taillights, a bucket seat interior, a center console with tachometer and transmission shifter. It had the famous Dynaflow transmission shared by all full-size Buicks, plus special exterior side trim, vinyl-covered roof (new for 1962), and its own unique emblem: a stylized head of a wild cat, located on each of the C-pillars. However, the Wildcat did share the LeSabre's and Invicta's trio of VentiPorts on the front fenders, a design cue lasting only through the 1963 model year.
This one is in A1 condition!
