Don't know that the original Yenkos will be effected all that much. Similar situation to the Cobra continuation series. Same car with 2 different markets.

I fully agree and really would have thought they would have been re-produced in "kit" form by now.

If you look at something like what Factory Five puts out. Shelby, 33 & 35 hot rods, daytona. Why not Tri fives, and pony cars ? Modern handling, brakes, power plants in a familiar body style.
For $20k you can get a bare body with suspension ( all brand new on a tubular frame ) then pick your poison for a drivetrain.

That one looks like a Baldwin-Motion Camaro.

Pretty sure it is styled after the '68 Yenko: https://www.hemmings.com/blog/2017/...sells-for-record-setting-600000-in-las-vegas/

Personally, I have always preferred the '68s over the belly button '69s.
Mike,
You're right. Here's a link to a Baldwin-Motion Camaro on Hagerty's site. Different scoop and stripes.

why do think it's a scam?
I think it's a scam because you're paying for the licensing. You can buy repro Yenko badges, and it's a bare bones Camaro. There's no reson it couldn't be built for half their price. "starting at $149,995", PFFFT, for WHAT?
