1971 Chevrolet Nova Yenko Replica
Why This Car Is Special
The Chevrolet Chevy II/Nova was a small automobile manufactured by Chevrolet, and produced in five generations for the 1962 through 1979, and 1985 through 1988 model years.
If you know muscle cars, you know Don Yenko and Yenko Chevrolet built some of the most insane muscle cars to ever pound the Earth. The most lethal of those was the 1969 Chevrolet Yenko Nova. There were only 38 built, and each came with a 450-horsepower 427 cubic-inch V8 under the hood. Yenko called the SC427 Nova “barely legal at best” and “the wildest thing we ever did.”
How wild, exactly? Chevy refused to build a car to this spec through the COPO program, and COPO built some hairy rides. But, we have a frame-off restored replica 1971 Yenko Nova have at Skyway Classics that is just like the originals, only maybe more potent!
The heart of any Yenko was always the big block Chevy engine, and this one has it in spades as it is a very built 502 cubic inch engine with 502 horsepower.
The engine really looks mean too with the chrome open element air cleaner, black Chevrolet logo valve covers, aluminum heads, hi-rise performance intake, and performance four-barrel carburetor, modified ignition system and spark plug wires, long tube headers, on, performance fuel delivery system, and dual exhaust.
The engine compartment is painted shiny black and our Nova has all the power going into the modified Chevy Turbo 400 automatic transmission, B&M Ratchet Shiftier with Reverse Lock Out, 2500 stall convertor, and 12-bolt rear end with 3.73 gears.
The ride is fast and safe too with the Wilwood 4-wheel disc brakes, 5-spoke racing mag wheels with blackwall performance tires and only approximately 1,400 test miles since the restoration.
The redone tan interior looks like new and has twin vinyl bucket seats with the SYC logos in the headrests and matching rear bench seat, door panels, headliner and carpeting, factory gauge panel and performance gauges, an SS Steering Wheel, and a black 6-point roll cage.
The 1971 Nova body is painted in a stunning Polo Green Exterior with the Yenko badges and stripes on its original body panels and is a sight to be seen.
Take a close look at the chrome, trim, hood vents, blacked-out grille and rear panel, and you will see the degree of detail put into this Yenko Nova.
Nothing says muscle car more than a hot-rodded replica 1971 Yenko Nova like we have at Skyway Classics.
It would be very hard to find a nicer one anywhere in the country.
