Rick N’s 1969 Chevelle

Built From The Ground Up

Rick N’s 1969 Chevelle

Longtime customer Rick Nelson of Muscle Car Restoration & Design purchased this 1969 Chevelle Yenko survivor from the original owner’s estate in November 2017, which kicked off a 19-month total restoration for this beautiful Yenko.

No expense was spared to bring this Chevelle back to showroom condition, as it had sat in pieces for approximately 47 years following a frontal collision.

One of seven Garnet Red Yenko Chevelles sold at V.V. Cooke of Louisville, KY, this example retains the numbers matching 427ci/450hp big block and Muncie M21 transmission, which has been refreshed/rebuilt to stock specifications and currently produces 478hp.

Since the restoration has been completed, this 1969 has been featured as the cover car for Muscle Car Review twice, with plans to be featured in several more magazines in the future. Rick will be showing the car across the country at various events and shows as well.
