Yenko Chevrolet's history dates back to 1929, the year Frank Yenko opened a Durant dealership. After Durant folded in 1932, Yenko opened a Chevrolet dealership in Bentleyville, PA in 1934. In 1949, Yenko opened a second Chevrolet dealership in Canonsburg, PA. In 1957, Frank's son Don took over the dealership. Known for his modified Chevrolets, Don ran the dealership until 1982. Operating between 1949 and 1982, the dealership is best known for selling customized muscle cars in the late 1960s. Referred to today as "Yenkos," they are among the most collectible 1960s vehicles.
