Default Anyone else following the 1969 Nova maybe a Yenko thread on FB?

Guy posted he inherited the Nova from his uncle. Said the VIN is on the YSC registry. I see Joe Carella and Charley Lillard posting in the thread I figured some of you don't do FB.

I don't know how to directly link the thread, it's in this group:

That body number is right between two known Yenkos on the VIN list.

So....

-Body number is between two known Yenkos, converted 427 cars?
-Owner can get NCRS info, find out which dealer took delivery. Is it unlikely it was Dale based on what you guys are saying? Car could have sold used obviously through Dale too.
-The holes in back might be correct for Yenko badging, and the holes that were welded up in front indicated it had different front badging in its past
-Owner has yet to verify or share pics of fuel line.
-Owner can also sand down rear and look for the code on there, 4.10 something like that.
-What about the cluster, would the cluster be different for a converted car?

The car needs more research done.
I told him to get the NCRS shipping data report to see if it comes back to Yenko and to call Warren to see if he has anything.

Check the car for holes on the rear for Yenko crest emblems or Yenko 427 Emblems
Check the front fender for holes for 427 emblem.
Check the rear gear and code
there are other small detail items to check

One Yenko 427 Nova was restored with the 1968 Impala 427 fender emblem/side light.

Most of Yenko 427 Novas had the 396 emblem/side light removed and the Yenko 427 emblem installed with the side light to a base car that has no engine emblem

here are some photos showing the different combos
The photo posted of his car shows the base car side light but I don't know if the 427 holes are there.

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. :-)
