Description:

1969 Chevrolet Nova Yenko Tribute 396


A lot of blood, sweat and beers went into this Nova to produce what's on this auction. Long days and long nights, but it's done and it's a awesome Nova, anyone would be proud of owning and showing this car. But, it's time to move on, new projects are in and we are putting this Nova up for sale. We are selling this car local as well, so don't sit back and wait, as it maybe too late.

What I'm selling here is a dream come true. The ultimate toy, a 1969 Nova Yenko, skinned in Orange/Red paint with a new black interior. The heart beat of this car is a tuned 396 Big Block that is detailed to the max. Lift the hood and you will be proud of what's under it. Driving down the road, this car screams respect. Those Import owners with little Singer sewing machine engine are envious of the notes that this Big Block produces. The throaty exhaust is produced by a brand new dual exhaust that allows the 396 to breath the way it should breath. This Yenko is smooth as you shift through all the gears, that's because of the Rock Crusher M-22 that's helping you shift. You tell me, what's better then a big block with a M-22 attached.. Nothing much out there can match that combination.
We reserve the right to pull this car from the auction at anytime. Serious inquires only.
