This Nova is not an original “Yenko” as there are only 8 documented Yenko Nova still in existence. This Nova is an exact replica of the famed Yenko Nova. Exact because this Nova has a correct dated 427 block, heads, and intake. It has a correct dated 4 speed transmission. It has a correct dated 12 bolt third member differential. Everything about the car is correct including the radio delete. This project started with a 1969 Chev Nova. Every nut, bolt, clamp, and piece was removed and the car was rebuilt from the ground up. Every piece of metal was made shiny and free of rust and then refinished. Today the underside of the car is as spectacular as the upside. As well as the redone factory interior, the body work and finish is excellent without blemish. The fit and finish is beyond perfect and all the seams are straight and uniform. I am sure this car is better than it was brand new right off of the line. The paint is Chevrolet’s Rallye Green and is perfect show quality. If 10 is the standard, the body and paint are an 11.
The car was two years in construction and was completed 6 years ago. It has been driven 30 miles during that 6 years to “sort” it out and make sure everything worked as new. In the 6 years it has been stored covered in a climate controlled facility and as only been started and the motor brought to operating temperature periodically. I did note that a genuine “Yenko” Nova of which this a bona fide replica sold at Dana Mecum’s 25th Original Spring Classic Auction for $475,000. I invite your questions, comments, and criticisms of this car and will promptly respond. Thank you for the look.
