This 1969 Chevrolet Nova Yenko Tribute is for sale in our Louisville KY showroom. The Yenko name is one of if not the most recognizable names of the muscle car era. The little Chevrolet dealer from PA put out some of the fastest cars from the one of the fastest era of cars. Many people do not realize but Don got his start with Corvairs. He began to use the COPO pipeline as it is now known to order detuned racecars from the factory. This led to what many believe as the craziest muscle car of all, the 69 Yenko Camaro. The ground stomping 427's that were put in those cars had amazing amount of power and are legends. The Nova's on the other hand were so potent that Chevrolet would not even do the swap. The 10 known to exist are capable of running low 12's in the quarter mile in bone stock form. This wonderful example is as close to the real deal as you will get and probably even nicer. The car was completely disassembled and was a nut and bolt build from the ground up. Starting with a rust-free body it was prepped and sprayed with multiple coats of PPG black over the whole car including the bottom showing off the new factory floor pans. The powder coated sub frame only adds to the detail of this build. With the car ready to have its heart transplanted the decision to drop in a balanced and blueprinted 468 big block was made. With a set of polished and ported heads and a monstrous l89 cam this motor runs as good as it sounds. Speaking of sound, the long tube ceramic coated headers let this big block breath as it should. The power is given to the M22 transmission so it may send it to the 12 Bolt Posi rear end that has a set of 331 gears. Yes, you can drive this beauty down the highway and not be hitting 4500 RPM while doing so. Naturally you want to be able to show this 69 off and with the all new suspension and bushings you will be able to do just that. The all new factory red interior offsets the black exterior perfectly while bringing out the era correct red line tires. If you have wanted to get into the muscle car scene or just wanting a car that is guaranteed to give you goose bumps when you roll it off the trailer this 69 Nova Yenko Tribute is the car for you.
