Don Yenko did some amazing things, but even he didnt dare to stuff a 427 cubic inch V8 with tri-power into the compact Nova. However, that doesnt mean it cant be done, as this incredible 1971 Yenko S/C tribute demonstrates in spectacular fashion. Youve seen other Yenko tributes here at Streetside Classics, but none-and I mean NONE-were as impressive as this one. They did it right, starting with a base Nova 2-door sedan, not a hardtop, and built it up from there. Stripped and rebuilt at the molecular level, the unusual and arresting Placer Gold paint gives this one a unique look thats neither excessively flashy nor needlessly tame. Instead, it grabs you by virtue of being unusual, then draws you in with expert workmanship and careful attention to getting the finish as nice as it can possibly be. The panels were straightened and aligned with care, and the paint is two-stage urethane so the shine is both spectacular and durable. Correct Yenko decals are simple affairs that work well on the simple Nova shape, and theres no mistaking the big sYc logo on the hood. If you know what this is, youll know to get out of the way when you see it in your rear-view mirror. Inside its pure industrial-strength performance with a bench seat and a Hurst shifter. This Nova was built for combat, not for luxury, but nevertheless, its quite nicely done with fresh upholstery, new carpets, and door panels that add a bit of warmth to the all-black interior with a strip of faux woodgrain. Yenko decals on the headrests are a nice touch (yes, even the originals were simply decals), and the original instruments are all you get to keep an eye on the thumping big block. No, your eyes arent deceiving you, either, because it does have A/C thats integrated into the original controls and vents for a very OEM look. Theres also an AM/FM radio in the dash, but you wont need it because the 427 sounds downright scary. Even the trunk is neatly finished to stock specs with a fresh mat, spare tire cover, and full-sized spare. But enough with all that, you really want to know about the engine, right? Its an L71 427 tri-power, correct right down to the triple deuces up top and triangular air cleaner. Dressed the way it might have looked if it were an actual factory creation, it wears Chevy Orange paint, chrome big block valve covers, and even authentic details like stamped hoses and tower hose clamps. It starts quickly and idles like it escaped from an asylum thanks to long-tube headers and a 2.5-inch exhaust system. Its backed by a 4-speed manual that puts the twist to a 10-bolt rear, all sitting on stock suspension bits. Its as clean underneath as it is up top, and the performance is undeniable in such a lightweight car. Painted steel wheels with dog dish hubcaps complete the hardcore performance look and wear reproduction F70-14 Firestone Wide Ovals. Incredible to drive and just as remarkable to look at, this is perhaps the ultimate dream Nova, a car that could have been, if only the times had been a little different. Your chance is now, call today! This vehicle is located in our Atlanta showroom. For more information, please call (678) 279-1609 or toll free (877) 367-1835.
