About the Yenko Deuce:

Yenko used the Central Office Production Order (COPO) process within Chevrolet's Fleet and Special Services Department to get what he wanted in his Novas. Normally, this procedure was used for the relatively pedestrian acquisition of city taxis, special-wheelbase trucks and the like. Yenko used it to put not only the LT-1 engine, but also some other carefully selected GM performance parts, into the diminutive Nova. This ensured his customers would be rewarded with a truly exclusive high-performance vehicle. He advertised his unique creation as a "mini muscle car" through Yenko Sportscars, Inc., his separate performance company, and ended up ordering 175 examples before the model year was over.

The foundation for the Yenko Deuce was a lightweight, non-SS, base-trim Nova. Standard equipment included a bench seat and rubber floor covering. His Novas were assembled at the factory with the LT-1 engine, dual exhaust, power front disc brakes, front and rear anti-roll bars, heavy-duty springs and cooling system, M-21 four-speed transmission with special Hurst shifter or TH400 automatic transmission, E70-14 wide belted tires fitted to steel wheels with poverty hubcaps and a heavy-duty 12-bolt Posi-traction rear axle with 4.10 gears (the only '70 Novas to receive this ratio). Chevrolet then delivered the Novas to Yenko per his exclusive agreement.

Yenko's Sportscar team completed the conversion of the COPO Novas by adding the SS wheels, Yenko badges, decals and stripes, a Dixco hood tach and a laundry list of performance options available to his customers. After the now-Yenko Novas were completed, most were placed on car transporters and distributed to the Yenko network of dealerships around the country.

This well documented, fully restored muscle car looks showroom original and rides like new. No disappointment. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me at 407-948-0064. Please no calls after 9pm EST.
