Nova SS Yenko Tribute
396 V8, 4 SPEED MANUAL, FRONT PWR DISCS, PWR STEERING, BIG MOTOR, SMALL PACKAGE
This 1970 Nova has the look and the sound of intimidation. The great part of this fierceness is that it comes at a value price.
Third-generation Novas are great cars. The fastback styling of the coupe combined with the reputation for being real "sleeper" performance machines make these a highly desired classic. Now take it up a notch with the cool blacked-out grille and rear panel of the SS packaging, and you have a real winner. It really stands out against great bright orange paintwork. But the real cherry on this one is the vinyl black Yenko stripe packaging that pays tribute to the best performance dealer Chevrolet ever had. Just in case the performance appearance wasn't already clear on this Nova, it rests on Cragar-style five-spoke 15-inch wheels.
This car wants to be intimidating at every stoplight, and the interior doesn't let this image down. The black vinyl on the seats dash and door panels holds its menacing appearance. Still, being the bad boy doesn't mean having to give up creature comforts. The bucket seats are a modern take on a vintage look. The high-back units provide a better contour fit than factory originals, plus they leave room in between the two for a complete custom center console - you never got the convenience of a real cup holder in 1970! This also provides an armrest, housing for the added oil & temperature gauges, and framing for the Hurst gearshift (badging above the glovebox lets everyone else know this is an upgrade, too.) The stereo has been upgraded to a modern AM/FM/CD, and to help with the rear speakers, a custom parcel shelf was created. The thin wood-rimmed wheel provides a nice added style touch and a nice place to command the power steering.
Beneath the metal is what made Yenko cars special, and this tribute coupe has an interesting take on this idea. The 1969 Yenko Novas were big block 427 cubic-inch V8s, but by 1970 Yenko went for a more environmentally friendly 350 V8. This tribute car splits the difference a bit by utilizing a nice stout 396 cubic inches. Keeping the big block V8 also means an unmistakable tone from the dual exhaust that does a great job of announcing the power under the hood. In fact, everyone at the local car shows will hear you and want a peek at the monster inside. To help this, the BBC V8 has been treated to some attractive chrome on the air cleaner and valve covers. Power is sent to a four-speed manual transmission and then to a strong 12-bolt rear end. There is a lot of rubber to meet the road with 215/60R15 performance tires. When it comes time to stop this beast there are power brakes with discs up front.
Having a nicely built Yenko tribute like this has the advantage of a mean appearance and the power to back it up. Best of all, it holds the looks like a priceless muscle car at a price that will make it fly out of the showroom. Call today!!
