1969 Chevrolet Yenko Nova


Don Yenko was responsible for some of the hottest-performing muscle cars of the '60s and '70s, but when it came to producing the Yenko SC427 Nova, even he had second thoughts about putting together a machine he once referred to as “barely legal at best” and "the wildest thing we ever did" in describing why GM refused to build them through the COPO program. GM brass was specifically concerned with product liability issues. Yenko Chevrolet converted at total of 38 SC427 Novas.

Fewer than 10 Yenko Novas are known to exist today.
Frame-off restoration. 427/450 HP engine. 4-speed transmission. 4.10 Positraction rear end. Power brakes. Lemans Blue with White Yenko stripes.
This example made $380,000 in 2015.
