Numbers-matching big block power, four-on-the-floor, and a terrific-looking package that pays tribute to some of the meanest Chevys around - it all comes together on this 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Yenko Tribute. So if you want a true muscle car with added speed and style, read on...
This was born a silver coupe, which is always nice, but when paying tribute to one of the boldest hardtops around, it\'s best to go with a bold red. And the gloss this one gives off makes sure it gets noticed. So it looks right for its upgrade to Yenko status. These cars always look terrific thanks to the stripe package on the hood that makes this coupe look like it\'s always moving forward. And the full-length Yenko S/C side stripes add emphasis to where the power meets the pavement in the rear. Straight body lines and bright chrome bumpers all make for a quality-looking Chevelle. It really is a solidly detailed package. You see it everywhere from the re-plated door handles to the way the black vinyl roof coordinates with the stripes for an almost two-tone style presentation. And those competition-style Torq Thrust wheels even fit the period-correct style, especially with the classic-style Goodyear Polyglas tires.
The black accents of the exterior get you ready for the full black interior. Everything looks clean, correct, and well-maintained. So it\'s easy to share this hardtop with family and friends. This is quite authentic in the details, like the button-top seatback and Delco AM radio that\'s there for display. The only modern piece you\'ll recognize is a cup holder center console, and purists will be happy to know it\'s removable. And this is an especially well-done driver\'s package. The classic Chevy sports steering wheel has a Yenko horn button, and it\'s mounted on a tilt column. The full gauge package with tach is supplemented by vintage-style Stewart Warner green line readouts under the dash. And the Hurst shifter gives you a firm grip on the four-speed.
The tidy engine bay knows how to put this V8 on display. The motor has a terrific Yenko style with the Yenko finned valve covers and classic decals. But there\'s something more going on with this motor. The callouts say 427, but this is really a 396 cubic-inch V8. It\'s also the numbers-matching big block. So you might even be able to do some digging to confirm if this Yenko tribute is also a real Super Sport. It\'s also a well-done power package with a Holley four-barrel carburetor w/electric choke, MSD ignition, and a large set of dual exhaust pipes for a nice rumble. The motor fires up eagerly, idles nicely, and shifts smoothly. As you look underneath, you have the kind of clean style that gives you confidence out on the road. Plus, the 12-bolt rear end, boxed trailing arms, and rear sway bar know how to get the power to the pavement. There\'s also power steering, power brakes, and front discs for a solid all-around driver.
This is a strong-running big block Yenko tribute with some serious style. So if you love power and poise, don\'t miss this Chevelle. Call now!
