1970 Chevrolet Nova COPO LT1 350 -Real Yenko DeuceVehicle Overview
|1970 CHEVROLET NOVA YENKO DEUCE-THE REAL THING! COPO LT1 350|
-THE REAL THING!!
- One of 175 built and one of 25 with a Forest Green, Code 48 exterior, according to Super Chevy magazine. a COPO LT1 350 engine, a Muncie 4-speed manual, a COPO F41 sport suspension and a 12-bolt differential with a 4.10:1 posi-traction. The vehicle has the correct drivetrain, interior and the correct numbers.
The CE block is 100% date-code correct for a YENKO, same for the Tranny. The most expensive item--the F41 COPO rear end, is ORIGINAL.
As a young man back in the 1950s and 1960s, Don Yenko learned the Chevrolet car and truck industry from his father, a very successful man in the industry. Both Yenkos liked Chevrolet performance, and road racing was Don's forte. Knowing how to manipulate the almost unknown factory Central Office Production Order (COPO) program, he first ordered some special '65 Corvairs, named them Yenko Stingers, and went road racing with customers and friends alike. Today, they are legendary. His name is also legendary in Camaro, Chevelle and Nova camps by creating some of the baddest rides on the streets in the late '60s.
In 1970, the Clean Air Act of 1970 changed the direction of Yenko's creations. This new national legislation, combined with ultra-high-cost performance car insurance woes, made Don Yenko counter with the 1970 LT1 350 cubic inch Yenko Deuce Nova. It was a COPO, and it was advertised as a "mini muscle car." It supposedly flew under the performance car insurance premium radar.
There were only a total of 175 produced in 1970 and only 88 are documented to still exist today. Of those 88, there are only 14 known examples in Forest Green with a 4-speed transmission.
The car features a "CE" block LT1 engine, a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission, F41 sport suspension and a 12-bolt differential with a 4.10:1 posi-traction. Super Rare "ATLAS MAGS" wheels complete the legendary Muscle Car look.
The Deuce is listed in both the Yenko Registry and the Copo Connection Registry. The originating dealer was Yenko Chevrolet in Canonsburg, PA. It was then transferred to and sold new at W.R. Austin Motors in Norwalk CT. Vin is 114270W349789
