the 1969 Yenko 427 Nova was not a COPO order like the 69 427 Camaro and Chevelle . Yenko transplanted the 427 short block.

There are still some items to look for such as holes for the SW tach and sending unit.

Most of the Yenko 427 Nova ads list 4:10 gears so I am curious of the gear ratio.

He posted a bunch of pics in the Yenko FB group, saw Joe C reacting to them. Great stuff.

Looks like the owner is just up the road from MCACN in Milwaukee.

One of the great muscle car finds of alltime! I'll have a nomination at MCACN. Rarer than a '69 SYC Nova and also a 427 transplant car. :-)

Warren D is a key person to check with. While I have never seen the list of 37 1969 SYC Novas, it is my understanding that Vince Eme has the list as well as info on some of the converted cars.

Got me confused here Wes! How is it rarer than a 69 sYc Nova when it is supposedly a sYc Nova?

It's a transplant car by another Supercar builder with a lower estimated production number. Hope that clears it up.

it appears to have the rear panel holes like a 427 Yenko Nova

hopefully the 427 paperwork can be found.

Someone posted that Vince E. sold his paperwork collection. Can anyone confirm that?

Holes make sense if the SS panel was held in by 4 screws/bolts. Nice eye!!
