Legendary Motorcar is proud to present this 1969 Chevrolet Yenko Chevelle
The famous store of Don Yenko and his COPO ordered cars is well known amongst muscle car enthusiasts. Yenko Chevrolet was one of the most notable dealers who knew the sneaky way of specially ordering factory built cars with drive trains that officially should not have been available. Once he added his specific graphics and optional wheels, interior and gauges, the cars they were selling were among the fastest street cars around and today represent some of the most sought after collector cars to emerge from the muscle car era.
For 1969, Yenko managed to get their hands on only 99 Chevelles with the L72 427 engine, presented here is one of them. Special ordered with COPO 9562, this factory Butternut Yellow Chevelle was equipped just as you see it today, with black vinyl top and black interior, of course with the sYc embroidery on the headrests! A look at the factory build sheet still with the car and you can see the car rolled off the assembly line with the desirable options of power disc brakes, power steering and rear mounted antenna. With original Yenko cars being so rare, to find one with such great documentation as well as having signed statements of authenticity dating back several decades , it was easy to justify a complete nut and bolt no expense spared rotisserie restoration to the highest level. Having been collector owned, this car has been meticulously maintained since the completion of the restoration and shows beautifully from the top to the bottom. The correct Yenko components are all there from the column mounted tach to the Hurst dual gate shifter, and from the three under dash gauges to the Yenko wheels and, of course, the signature Yenko/SC striping. This car today is among the most desirable Chevelles ever produced, a real, documented Yenko with a meticulous no expense spared restoration.
For the collector or Chevelle aficionado, it does not get any better than this... the very special and ultra rare Super Car, the Yenko Chevelle.
