This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS 454 Yenko tribute has the look, the
sound, and the big block V8 heart of intimidation. Best of all, you
can get the power and fierceness for a price that's untouchable for
an original Yenko.
The '69 Chevelle is already a great classic. The styling of the
coupe has a cool fastback-like hardtop profile and a hint of flying
buttress, so it's already in-demand, before you see the extra
speedy upgrades. A Yenko car was the meanest one on the streets,
and so it deserves an upgrade to GM's boldest color: Hugger Orange.
It's a later respray, and that means it has the kind of glossy
style that not only radiates in the sunlight, but it almost looks
like it could glow in the dark, too. Plus, the white Yenko S/C
stripe package pays tribute to the best performance dealer
Chevrolet ever had. It looks distinct flowing down the sides where

And the hood stripe not only highlights the SS dual power dome

or add the radio of your choice to get an ideal updated/upgraded
machine. But as a good Yenko tribute, it follows the theme of just
giving you the right driver's essentials. So you have front bucket
seats, a horseshoe shifter in the center console, and an NK4 sports
A Yenko car is all about big power, and so you have a nice big
block under the hood. Chevy's famous 454 cubic-inch V8 looks good
with bright valve covers, a matching air topper, and the bold block
looking like it's radiating power from within the dark inner walls.
The Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor means it inhales deeply, and
the headers add power and rumble to the dual exhaust and Flowmaster
mufflers. This has all the right essentials in place for a driver's
car, including power steering, power brakes, front discs, modern
sport tires, and a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission.
So it's a nice base for you to do some shadetree tinkering to
unlock that ideal balance of muscle car and cruiser that you really
This is the kind of true muscle car package that makes for a
terrific Yenko tribute. So if you love a standout Chevelle, call
