Classic Car Overview

1969 Yenko/SC 427 NOVA Recreation for sale. Motorcar Classics is thrilled to present this 1969 Chevrolet Nova 427 Yenko/SC recreation featured in LeMans Blue with blue vinyl interior. This is a meticulous recreation of a rare Yenko of which only seven real cars are known to survive. For your pleasure it has AC which was not available from Yenko in period. Don Yenko was responsible for some of the hottest-performing muscle cars of the 60s and 70s, but when it came to the Yenko/SC 427 Nova, he is known to have referred to it as barely legal at best and the wildest thing we ever did. While Yenko Chevrolet converted at total of 37 427/SC Novas according to the Yenko Sportscar Club, just seven are known to exist today. The last time one sold at auction it was a Mecum sale and brought $400K.Our car was commissioned by a true enthusiast and is as close to owning an original as you can get Yenko started with Novas equipped by the factory with available 396 CI engines to take advantage of their beefier frames, drivelines, brakes and suspensions. Yenko replaced the motor with a 11.0:1 compression L72 427/450 HP engine, resulting in a car capable of sub-11 second quarter mile times. One was track tested with a zero-to-sixty time of 5.1 seconds. Ours is a professionally built and very correct recreation 69 Yenko Nova with a certified COPO 427 motor that is built to L-88 specs at about 460HP. The original Yenko Nova was built to L72 specs. The car has original and correct 14 wheels and tires with dog dish hubcaps.The restoration was done by COPO/Baldwin Motion expert Ricky Smith of RSR Restorations in Arafat, Virginia and it looks just as it would have come from Yenko Chevrolet in Pennsylvania back in 1969. In fact, the build of the motor predates the matching 4-speed transmission which predates the build date of the car. Everything on this car has been replaced including adding the Yenko-spec heavy duty suspension. Kevin Blanks Performance of Clarksville, Virginia was the engine builder. The transmission and 4:10 posi-rear end came from Powers Performance out of Greensboro, NC.With regard to the motor, the casting on the back of the block is for a 1969 427 COPO 4-bolt main motor or a 427/390 2 bolt main motor. Close inspection differentiates this motor by virtue of the 1 plug above the oil filter which is unique to a 427 L72 COPO 450 HP motor. The lesser motor would have a plug. Correct Holley 780 CFM Carb and matching L-72 Intake are on this awesome car. The engine is built to L-88 specs at .30 over 468. The rear date codes from March 1969 and the M-21 close-ratio 4-speed Transmission was built in April 1969. The car itself was built in June 1969. All factory correct firewall and motors markings are in place. The cowl tag is for a 350/250 small block V-8, which was the donor car for this recreation.The only non-factory items are the A/C System, that was built from scratch using Chevrolet stock parts, and the ceramic coated headers that were required in order to make the A/C System fit correctly. It has a two-sided A/C box since Chevrolet never made a big block Nova housing assembly. Ricky took half a small block assembly and mated it to an Impala big block assembly and installed custom deep groove pulleys.This awesome Nova has a rebuilt carburetor, rebuilt front calipers, pads, rotors, and silicone brake fluid. New Alternator, Belts, A/C compressor with 134A upgrade, and rear wheel cylinders. The steel driveshaft is powder-coated to look like aluminum. The exhaust tips on the Yenko replica Nova are welded, as done at Yenkos shop 50 years ago, to prevent them coming loose with the 427 motor. While not for the faint of heart, this Yenko/SC 427 is a faithful recreation of an icon of American muscle.
