Chevrolet Yenko Chevelle 1969


1969 Chevrolet Yenko Chevelle Front AngleThe Yenko Chevelle offered here is the recipient of a pain-staking restoration, and it has excellent provenance and a wonderful story. On June 24, 1969, Ms. Josephine Gresko drove her 1964 4-speed Impala into Yenko Chevrolet in Canonsburg, Pennsylvania, looking for a trade-in on a new performance car. Assisted by salesman Howard Liverey, she purchased the COPO Yenko super car you see here. Painted Fathom Green with White SYC graphics and emblems, this is only a two-owner vehicle, having been traded into Bill Keith Auto Sales in Wexford, Pennsylvania, in 1976, where the current owner’s parents bought it for him as he was too young to sign the paperwork. This is a rare opportunity to become its third owner and next caretaker.

Vintage muscle cars: how to drive one in the 21st century


Muscle cars have become something of a cult movie staple over the last few decades and such success is reflected in the amount of fans now learning how to restore them.

Muscle cars occupy a special place in the heart of vintage cars fans and collectors alike. They are typically adorned with only two doors, 300 or more horsepower (funnily enough, cars with less than 300 horsepower are called ‘pony cars’) and usually a V8 motor.

Muscle cars production and popularity reached their peak towards the end of the 1960’s when they became the cars of choice for young rebellious crowds in search of a bit of thrill.

1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible 572CI 6-Speed


1965 Chevrolet Corvette Convertible Front AnglePerhaps in another dimension, this car could have existed on the original GM Motorama circuit. The thought of ‘prototype show car’ quickly comes to mind when first viewing this 1965 Corvette convertible, finished in rich Silver with Black accents. In keeping with the old-school custom ideas, it features shaved door handles, shaved head-lamp covers, and stack-style injection. However, the way-back machine accelerates right back into the 21st century when the details of this special performance car are unveiled. Created during a two-year, professional body-off restoration, it blends the past to the present. The big-block engine displaces a healthy 572 CI, featuring aluminum heads, body color engine paint, and billet fuel injection equipment.
