A Little History

Don Yenko was an American race car driver most known for creating the Yenko Camaro, a high-performance version of the Chevrolet Camaro. As the popularity of muscle cars in the 1970s declined due to higher insurance premiums and tighter emission rules, Yenko shrewdly countered with modifications to the 1970 Nova. Instead of putting a big block 427 cu. in. in his special Nova, Yenko convinced GM to put in the powerful small block 350 cu.in. shared by the new Z-28 Camaro and LT1 Corvette. This car is one of 122 produced with a 4-speed transmission, which uses a Muncie shifter and the 12-bolt Positraction differential. Painted in Cranberry Red with white Yenko graphics, this Nova Yenko Deuce features the LT1 small-block engine, solid-lifter camshaft, aluminum intake manifold, special finned-aluminum valve covers, a simple bench seat and a hood-mounted tachometer.
