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.
