  • This is simply an L-78 Nova that happened to be shipped to Yenko Chevrolet. Similar Novas were shipped to any dealer ordering them. They are desirable cars, but the fact that Don Yenko ordered this one doesn’t make it special, and there’s no reason to believe he had any intention to convert it to a 427, unless there’s a document that states that fact, signed by Yenko. The fact that’s it’s an automatic would suggest there was no intention to make it (as far as I can determine) the only 427 Yenko Nova so equipped.

    • Rick agree with you one hundred percent nothing ultra rare just a L/78 nova that came from YenKo Chevrolet . Just because it came from here unmodified makes it any more special then from any other chevy dealer.

    • This is a SS396 sold by Yenko not a Yenko nova.The serial # is not on the registery because its just a Nova SS. There are several Yenko Novas, Camaros and at leas 1 Vega in my area.If it is real Yenko it should have black ralley stripes on the hood and trunk with a triangle at the beginning wit a sYc in it (yenko Super Car) It should also have bucket seats with a center console with a gauge clusterThe same emblem should be embossed in the head rest and it should have a decal on the air cleaner clearly saying sYc as well as other body emblems, Nova SS sold by Yenko Yes . Yenko super car no. My neighbor has a 69 Yenko Camaro same color and I know of a few more around. I live less than 100 mile from Pittsburg

  • Very nice car but I wouldn’t consider it a yanko. What if shelby had a mustang shipped to him back in the 60’s to convert to a shelby. And he did nothing but immediately sold it. Would it still have the value of a shelby, hell no. This nova doesn’t even a yanko badge. It’s a nice car just not a six figure car. It’s a base 396 nova nothing more.

  • I don’t see it being so special…and with it only being on the road for 9 years it has too much rust on it.

  • I loved watching this. I remember the days when people used to make their cars into street machines. I had a 69 Chevy 327 2-door coupe. That thing rocked on the highway. It was in mint condition. Funny thing, one of the reasons I bought it was because there was a clear sneaker print upside down on the interior of the back seat!
