Overview


This 1970 Chevrolet Nova Yenko Deuce tribute is part history lesson, part fresh build, and all muscle machine. So dig deep into the correct details on the V8, four-speed, and the cool upgrades that makes this a worthy one to pay homage to the Yenko name.

The Yenko Deuce was a short run of coupes designed to fly under the radar of insurance premiums... that is, as long as your insurance agent didn't see it in-person. After all there's nothing understated about the special stripe package that starts at the headlights and runs the full profile until it meets at the trunk for a very fitting "Y" on this Yenko. Plus, there are the stipes on the hood proudly announcing the LT1 power within. You can see it all so well, because this is all set against a shade of dark color akin to the factory's Forest Green. Plus, bright chrome bumpers, classic competition-style torque thrust wheels, Firestone Wide Oval tires, and iconic Yenko badging all come together to really let you know someone made the extra investment to make this a terrific-looking and period-correct classic.

Inside, there's even more great details, like the Yenko Deuce logos on the doors and an overall tidy feeling of investment. Yenko cars weren't weighed down with options, and so this one is crisp, clean, and correct. Your left hand is instantly attracted to the classic Chevy sports steering wheel (power steering), and your right one may never want to leave the Hurst shifter. There's a big speedo in front of you and auxiliary readouts cleanly installed below the dash. Looking for the tach? It's mounted out on the hood so it's always at eye-level.

The secret to the Yenko Deuce was that it had a 350 cubic-inch small block, which was a displacement you could get from the factory. Except this was an LT1 V8, and this example comes with 202 heads, aluminum intake, solid lifter cam, and flat-top pistons. It inhales deeply with a Holley 750 CFM four-barrel carburetor, and the Hooker headers add to the power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust. You have complete control over this enhanced V8 and its powerful soundtrack thanks to the close-ratio Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission. And this big power is fed through a 12-bolt 4.10 rear end with Positraction, so you have confident and quick take-offs. And as you look at the full package, including the undercarriage photos, you can tell this is a fresh build. The motor runs strong; the transmission shifts crisply; and the four-wheel disc brakes stops you with authority.

Complete with owner's manual, this is fitting tribute to one of the most interesting chapter in the Yenko history. So don't let this deal slip away, call today!
