Big block power, four-on-the-floor, and a terrific looking package
that pays tribute to some of the meanest Chevys around - it all
comes together on this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Yenko Tribute. So
if you want a true muscle car with added speed and style, read
This was born a Glacier Blue coupe, but they made sure to give it a
bright and modern respray when they made the investment to upgrade
this one to Yenko status. These cars always look terrific thanks to
the stripe package on the hood that makes this coupe look like it's
always moving forward. And the full-length Yenko S/C side stripes
add emphasis to where the power meets the pavement in the rear.
Straight body lines, good gaps, and bright chrome bumpers all make
for a quality-looking Chevelle. So it really stands up to scrutiny
during all the extra attention this hardtop attracts. In fact, it's
an awesomely detailed package. The stripes coordinate with the
black vinyl roof for an almost two-tone style presentation. And
fans know that the Yenko cars usually came with color-matched steel
wheels and dog dish hubcaps. So it has an authentic feeling, right
down to the classic-style Goodyear Polyglas tires.
The sea of blue continues on the interior, and this really has an
attractive and correct color package inside and out. Everything
looks clean, correct, and well-maintained. So it's easy to share
this hardtop with family and friends. As enthusiasts will love to
point out details, like how the Yenko cars were usually bench seat
vehicles. While these are supposed to be minimalist, the
retro-style AM/FM digital stereo w/cassette is a welcomed feature
for proper driving music. The wood-rimmed steering wheel, auxiliary
readout trio, and Hurst shifter are the right kinds of upgrades
that give you both a performance and period-correct feel.
The true heart of a Yenko car is all about delivering big power
under the hood. That's why this Chevelle has a 396 cubic-inch big
block V8. It has a powerful look as the bold orange block, shining
valve covers, and matching air topper all radiate from within the
dark and tidy inner walls of the engine bay. And this forceful
appearance is no accident. The V8 inhales deeply through an
Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer intake.
And it exhales with authority out of the Flowmaster dual exhaust.
Best of all, you are in complete control of the power and
soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. As you
look underneath, this one has the clean look of proper care and
investment, and that also means better confidence on the road.
Plus, you also have good driving features, like power steering,
power brakes, and front discs.
This is a strong-running big block Yenko tribute with some serious
style. So if you love power and poise, don't miss this Chevelle.
