For Sale: 1972 Chevrolet Nova SS Yenko Tribute in Lavergne, Tennessee

$44,995

Vehicle Description

This 1972 Chevrolet Nova has the look, the sound, and the performance enhanced big block V8 heart of intimidation. Best of all, you can get the Yenko-style power and fierceness for a fraction of the price.


Third-generation Novas are great cars. The fastback styling of the coupe combined with the reputation for being real sleeper performance machines make these a highly desired classic. Now take it up a notch with such a great paint scheme on super straight sheetmetal. The exceptionally vivid red from the Corvette palette is rendered with a modern clearcoat shine. It not only looks fantastic when the sunlight hits it, but also the red is a great backdrop to highlight the black Yenko S/C stripe package that pays tribute to the best performance dealer Chevrolet ever had. And this one is still not done with its custom upgrading. There's power bulge cowl hood, aggressive stance, and iconic American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.


This car wants to be intimidating at every stoplight, and the interior doesn't let this image down. The black vinyl on the seats, dash, and door panels holds its menacing appearance. Still, being the bad boy doesn't mean having to give up creature comforts. The bucket seats offer high back luxury and the proper sYc logos on the headrests. The wood on the Chevy three-spoke sports steering wheel does a nice job of matching with the paneling on the doors. There's even an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo that has an aux input for your latest music player. But once you gaze over the full set of TPI gauges, and grab the Keisler shifter, you instantly know it's time to get down to business.


We know you've seen the 427 callouts on the fenders, and well, that's a bit of a lie.... because this is a larger 454 cubic-inch big block filling every inch of the engine bay. The presentation is fantastic with all the bright elements like the air grabber, shrouds, master cylinder, alternator, and aluminum radiator. And of course, nothing beats how the ribbed valve covers have been painted in the grooves to match the Chevy orange block. But once you look beyond the flash, there's some serious performance substance. The big V8 has been built with goodies like a solid lift cam, roller rockers, and 427 heads (large rectangle port). And yes, the triple duce sticker on the air cleaner is correct because there is a trio of Holley carbs feeding this monster motor. It makes a thunderous sound out of the dual exhaust, and you are in complete control of the symphony of fury thanks to the Keisler five-speed manual transmission. This sends power to the stout Ford 9-inch rear with a limited-slip differential. There are even subframe connectors to keep it all planted. But this custom build is more than just a big power package. With an overdrive gear in the transmission, power steering, front disc brakes, and new bushings, this Nova has all the right features to enjoy any time.


Having a nicely built Yenko tribute like this has the advantage of a mean appearance and the power to back it up. Best of all, it holds the looks like a priceless muscle car at a price that will make it fly out of the showroom. Call today!!!
