THIS VEHICLE HAS NOT BEEN DETAILED!!!
IT HAS BEEN WASHED, VACUUMED, AND WIPED DOWN WITH TURTLE WAX QUICK SHINE PRIOR TO BEING PHOTOGRAPHED.
IMAGINE HOW AMAZING IT WILL LOOK WHEN YOU TAKE THE TIME TO DETAIL AT HOME!
OVERVIEW Real YENKO Chevy carsare so far into the stratosphere in pricing that most mere mortals will never have the chance to experience one.
A well done tribute car can give you the look and presentation of the real one for tens of thousands less, and when the powertrain is built to the max like on this car, the brutal power and performance will almost eclipse the original cars!
This tribute is a full and complete comprehensive restoration that took over two years to complete, and has only been finished a few years ago, with a new powertrain that was just finished a few months ago!
The car belongs to a friend of mine, Mike, in Schenectady, NY, and he asked if I could help him sell it and get it out to a little broader audience than the local paper! Since I have seen, driven, and actually owned the car prior to him getting it, I am quite confident it will exceed your expectations in every way.
You can call Mike direct with questions and concerns between 9am and 8pm EST at (518) 577-4445. The car and title will ship from him directly, and you will pay him directly.
Please take a moment to read the detailed listing, look over the 100 extra-large detailed photos, and decide to make it yours before someone else does it first!
THIS CAR HAS A NEW YORK TITLE AND CAN BE PICKED UP, OR WILL SHIP FROM, SCHENECTADY NEW YORK.

DESCRIPTION This car is just amazing. Really. From front to back, and top to the fully finished and detailed bottom, the car is just amazing!
I had the pleasure of purchasing this car from the gentleman who owned it for many years, and spent 2 years performing the total restoration on the car in his performance shop here in Florida.
I bought the car about 2 years ago, and my friend Mike got it from me about a year ago, and proceeded to put about $15,000 more into in with a complete new engine and powertrain set up, front disc conversion, full and complete detail, and brand spankin’ new 17” wheels and tires!
He drove the car while working on his other show car project so he wouldn’t be without wheels for the Spring/Summer cruising season, but now he needs to sell it to fund the rest of the show car build while Winter keeps him in the garage.
He took the photos you see, and sent them to me since the car looks different than when I sold it to him. I attached one photo of it when it was mine so you can see it!
The car started out solid, and it was a running, driving car in its original Glacier White exterior that was a hit at local car shows. A decision to repaint the car was the catalyst to create the fully restored YENKO tribute the car is today.
The entire car was separated from the chassis, and every single piece, part, nut, and washer was removed until it was nothing but a pile of parts.
Decisions were made as to which components were deemed worthy of refurbishment and reuse on the new car, while those which didn’t pass muster were used to order NOS replacements for the build.
The body was incredibly straight and clean, as were the floors, and you can see that in the restoration photos below. Some metal work was required to get the car in top condition, but it is minimal, and was professionally performed leaving no signs of replacement.
The body is incredibly straight and smooth, and great care was taken to make sure that all gaps were even, all hinges aligned properly, and all other fit and finish issues were addressed prior to handing the car over to be painted.
The car was carefully blocked, gone over, and prepped before three coats of DuPont GM HUGGER ORANGE were carefully sprayed on, then it was allowed to dry and prepped for 2 coats of DuPont 74500 clear with 14305S hardener.
After drying, the finish was then lovingly hand-sanded and buffed to perfection, and it looks absolutely magnificent, as you can see in the 100 EXTRA-LARGE photos below.
I am sure that you could find a small blemish, mark, chip, or something on the cars painted surface if you start crawling around on your hands and knees, but a careful walk around of the car reveals no dents, dings, scratches, scrapes, or damage of any kind. Perfect is a word that gets tossed around on eBay like a football on Thanksgiving, and no car is ever perfect, but this one really comes close!
The underside of the car was sprayed as well, and it shows just as nice, with clean paint, and even a finish sand and buff on it as well!
The entire chassis was stripped, coated in rust-preventative, and treated to chassis black before all of the new or refurbished suspension bits were installed again.
Everything on the chassis got new hardware, new bushings, bearings, inner/outer tie rods, ball joints, insulators, and more.
Front brakes were converted over to new STREET BANDIT disc units from NPD, who also supplied the new booster and proportioning system. The rear drum units were completely rebuilt as well, and everything got all new lines and fittings before being adjusted to perfection. The car stops perfectly, and doesn’t have any abnormal wander, fade, or pulling under heavy braking.
Steering is tight, smooth, and easy, and the car tracks as straight as an arrow going down the highway.
The GM 10 bolt POSI rear was opened, cleaned, inspected, and fit with 3.73 gears for a mix of highway and back road manners before being bolted back in place.
Every corner got new shocks and mounts, and the ride is soft enough to make Sunday rides comfortable, but firm enough to let you have a little fun too.
There are no suspension squeaks or rattles evident when driving the car.
The gas tank and all of the fuel lines are new, as is about 85% of the hardware on the chassis.
It is worthy of being put on a stand with mirrors underneath when you show it, and is a truly stunning chassis job.
Back up top, practically all of the bright work, trim, and chrome was either redone, replaced, or refurbished to like-new status, and it still shows that way from every angle.
The Chevelle emblems, YENKO emblems, GM badging, 427 badging, and grill badging are all in exceptional condition.
Grill itself shows like new, as does the headlamp trim, tail lamp surrounds, and rear cover trim and badging.
The chrome trim on the steel cowl hood looks like new as well.
All of the YENKO striping on the car is in exceptional condition, has been carefully installed to avoid bubbles and issues, and has no tears or damage whatsoever.
Chrome mirrors, window trim surround, and door handles all look fantastic, and show no damage or disrepair either.
The glass on the car is in exceptional condition, and has no chips, cracks, laminate issues, or damage.
All of the windows roll up and down with ease on new felts and regulators.
A YENKO metal plate frame out back completes the look, as does the correct YENKO drivers side back window decal.
Overall, the outside of the car is 9.5 out of 10.0, and it is 100% ready to show on a National or Regional level right now.
The chassis is a solid 9.5 out of 10.0, and basically needs to be pressure washed to get the light road grime off of it to be a 9.9 (nothing is perfect!).
Open the trunk and you are met by stunningly clean floor, full size spare with tire (not much tread, but it’s a spare, right?), new trunk seal, and correct POSI and JACK stickers in place.
It looks like new, and other than the balding tread on the spare, could pass for a time machine back to 1969!
Open the hood, and you are met with an exceptionally clean engine bay, from the new radiator with chrome top panel back to the cleaned and painted firewall. It shows incredibly well, and is as clean as you would expect a freshly built car to be.
Mike took out the LT4 motor that was in the car when I had it, because he wanted more raw power, and had a BRAND NEW 383ci Stroker motor built and installed.
The block is a 4-bolt main that was cleaned, magnafluxed, and aligned honed, bored .040 over to 385CID. It was plate honed, had new rings, cam bearings, freeze plugs, screw in oil plugs, and a clearance double roller chain installed, and was decked .008 as well.
The rotating assembly consists of and Eagle forged steel stroker crank, Eagle I-Beam rods with ARP cap screws, Speed Pro 4040 flat top hypertectic pistons with 2 valve reliefs, moly coated skirts, floating pins, power crank dampener, and king pin and rod bearings.
The cam is a Speed Pro CS186R hydraulic flat tappet unit ADV duration 284/284, duration at .050 is 230/230 at valve 481/481 with 1.5 rocker. Lobe displacement angle is 110 degrees, intake center line is 106 degrees.
Delphi GM lifters, comp cam bolt locking plate, and double roller timing chain were installed.
Melling supplied the high volume oil pump with steel sleeve shaft and welded pickup.
Heads are casting #462 Fuelie 1967 with new valve guides, stainless valves, 3 angle seats, guide bosses cut to .500, viton seals, comp roller stamped rocker arms and new screw in studs. Spring pressure is 105lbs @1.700”
FelPro gaskets, Hastings moly rings, 383 valve covers, Summit Pro mini-starter, distributer, Accel plug wires, 18” flex fan, 10qt oil cap., painted and finished in Chevy orange.
MARCH PERFROMANCE was tapped for a complete serpentine belt system with polished brackets and pulley system.
Dyno tested results on this motor are 468hp at 5,800 rpm, and 493 FT lbs torque @4300 rpm.
Wiring is clean and logically done, with no shortcuts or “backyard” ingenuity.
All lines and hoses throughout were new to the build, and all of it is in exceptional condition.
The motor gets power to the aforementioned 10-Bolt via a completely custom built TH400 which was rebuilt from the case in with all new HD race clutches and Steels, blue-printed high flow front pump, reverse manual valve body, HD sprag assembly w/steel drum, HD clutch hub, JW Bellhousing and HD input and intermediate shafts. IT also has a 3,500 stall converter installed with an Anti-Balloon plate.
It takes the almost 500hp coming from the motor and gets it to the rear end with zero issues or complaints.
It can drive as mild mannered as you want it thanks to the 3500rpm stall, but when you want to jam through the gears, it can take everything the car has and more! The transmission was built to 700hp specifications, and is practically bulletproof!
The car is a MONSTER when you want it to be, and it runs through the gears like it was made for the strip when you manhandle it, but can still cruise you on the boulevard without any problems.
The car is set up and was dyno tested to run on PUMP GAS 97 octane. It was in, and continues to be, in a street tune, but has more than enough capability for higher numbers with some racing fuel and tuning adjustments.
It is currently set up so you can drive it around daily without having to constantly adjust things when you want some solid power from the pedal, making it a PERFECT tune for someone who is not a mechanic and just wants to drive and enjoy the car.
If you like to tinker with things, I am sure that HP ratings MUCH higher are probably attainable, with corresponding torque ratings to match. The parts and build out on the powertrain were selected to handle it.
There are no leaks, weeping fluids, odd sounds, or known issues with the powertrain at this time, and it performs wonderfully.
Idle is clean and lopey, and it sounds fantastic through the custom exhaust system.
It does NOT run hot, and Mike tells me it as docile as you want it to be for around town driving, but ready to ROCK when the green light flashes!
Overall, the engine bay and powertrain on the car is a rock solid 10 out of 10.0, because it runs, looks, and performs like the freshly built machine it is.
Last but not least, let’s check out the stunning interior on this machine!
Opening the doors reveals an interior that is equal parts original and restored/NOS, with a clean and stock appearance throughout.
Door panels, kick panels, side panels, and pillar panels are all in exceptional condition, and show wonderfully.
Door pulls and window rollers are original to the car, and still show incredibly well.
Dash is clean, neat, and damage free, and is fit with the 120mph speedo on the left of the gauge pod with warning lights in the 2nd pod for FUEL, GEN, TEMP, and OIL. A gear selection panel completes the gauge area, and works as it should.
Light and wiper switches are stock and clean, and the lights function in PARK, HI, and LOW beam settings. Wipers work as they should, but washer does not.
The factory radio has been replaced by a retro looking unit from CLASSIC CAR STEREOS with an AM/FM digital tuner and iPod hookup plug. It sounds great through the new 140 watt DVC dash speaker, which was used to avoid cutting any other speaker holes in the car.
Glove compartment opens and reveals a clean liner on the inside, with an iPod/mp3 plug for the stereo system.
Cigar lighter unit is intact, and the dash lights are functional as well.
Ashtray area is original and the inside shows light patina from the cars 44 years of use. I can’t honestly say if the car was smoked in or not over the past four decades, but it has NOT been smoked in since restoration, and the car has ZERO odors or smells of any kind. It has also been PET FREE since completion.
Seats are in exceptional condition front and back, and show to be clean and free of any tears, stains, seam pulls, or damage.
Same can be said of the carpet, which shows very light signs of normal use, and can probably clean up even nicer when you have the car professionally detailed.
Headliner is also clean and damage free, and looks fantastic in the car.
Dome light works, and the optional shoulder belts hang from the roof mounts.
The center console is clean and solid, and has only light patina to show from its 44 odd years of use. The dual-gate shift functions perfectly, and has positive engagement in all selection spots. Console lid opens and closes as it should, and the storage compartment is clean and functional.
Issues on the inside? It needs a good detail in all the little nooks and crannies, and could use a new decal for the heat/vent control panel to make it perfect.
Overall, the car has an interior that combines original, restored, and new components together to present as a solid 9.00 out of 10.00. It is clean, solid, and damage free, and will look even nicer when you have a chance to professionally detail the car.
I have personally driven this car about 150 miles prior to Mike buying it from me, in a mix of highway and in-town situations, and I found it to be a remarkably well-mannered and smile-inducing machine to drive.
Mike is a gearhead like no one else I know, and he tells me the new powertrain upgrades will induce panic in passengers and thrill bystanders! There are NO known mechanical, operational, functional, electrical, or operational issues that he or I is aware of other than what has been disclosed in the listing above.
In the Schenectady, NY area? Call Mike and set up a time to go see it!
MILEAGE IS EXEMPT ON THE TITLE.
The title is in Mike's name, and I am marketing the car on his behalf as a courtesy to him, and because I know it is a killer car since I owned it before!
I strongly encourage a personal showing of the vehicle, or an inspection by a 3rd party, as that will only serve to help sell the car quickly. If you see the car in person, you will buy it. That simple.
