An Automatic SYC. John bought this 1969 Chevelle Yenko 31 years ago from an ad in Hemmings Motor News and completely restored it in the late ’90s.
John decided to go with this car because in his mind the Yenko SYC Chevelle is one of the most desired muscle cars and he wanted to be a part of the vast history that Don Yenko started many years ago.
John’s Chevelle is a factory-correct original 1969 Chevelle Yenko in a stunning Dusk Blue (GM color code 51) with iconic white SYC striping. It features Don Yenko’s tuned 427 Big-Block Chevy producing 425 horsepower coupled to a TH400 automatic transmission. When we asked John what was in store next for this iconic Chevelle he answered;
“The car has spent 31+ years with me so another complete restoration will be in store for this Chevelle in the near future.”
