Streetside Classics - Nashville
6000 Reliance Dr
This 1969 Chevrolet Chevelle SS Yenko tribute is a no-expense-spared kind of build where we have over $300k in receipts for the frame-off restoration. That means it has an awesome color combo, clean A/C interior, upgraded suspension, four-wheel disc brakes, and overdrive transmission. But while the fundamentals are exceptionally covered on this coupe is the performance-built big block under the hood that makes this award-worthy coupe also a street-eating machine.
This car is the product of a four-year restoration in 2018, and so they really took the time to get the body looking great. So that fastback styling with a Coke-bottle curves, a cool angled hardtop profile, and a hint of flying buttress is some of the crisp and cleanest you'll ever see. The appeal of a Yenko-style car is as clear as black and white, and so that's also the color theme. The dark paint is a high-quality, high-gloss finish that has the look of a black mirror. And the contrasting Yenko S/C stripe package that pays proper tribute to the best performance dealer Chevrolet ever had. And the more you look, the more you'll love the details. This has a blackout grille with custom Chevy bow tie, mirror-like chrome bumpers, dual power bulge hood, and a terrific set of American Racing competition-style Torq Thrust wheels.
For the same reason why you like the look of the white stripes against the black paint is also why you're going to love the parchment interior. And the pristine bucket seats really draw your eye to the correct sYc headrests. The big investment in this car means everything look clean and correct, including the intricate pattern on the door panels, the dual-spoke Chevy steering wheel w/tilt column, and the center console with horseshoe shifter. But while the look is pure vintage, they also have the best well-integrated upgrades. So under the clean carpeting is Dynamat insulation, and that classic-style radio is really a AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth and JL Audio speakers. Plus, the Vintage Air system means you've got cold-blowing R134a air conditioning for those summer days when you want to cruise with the windows down.
A proper Yenko tribute means a 427 cubic-inch V8 under the hood, and this era-correct block is just as show-ready as the rest of the car. And also just like a proper Yenko, you've got a hot motor under the hood. THIs big block has been enhanced with aluminum heads, an Edelbrock air gap aluminum intake, and topped with a Quick Fuel four-barrel carburetor. There are also the right supporting components, like a serpentine belt system w/upgraded pulleys and an aluminum radiator w/electric fans. Hedman headers add even more power while also contributing to the rumble of the H-pipe dual exhaust. It's a big power package, and so it's great to have a stout Stage 3 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission by Advanced Transmission. This feeds a 12-bolt Positraction rear end with 3.42 gears. As you look underneath the car, you'll spot even more of the best performance upgrade. It includes UMI Performance control arms front & rear, Hotchkis sway bars front & rear, and QA1 coilovers all-around. Add in power steering, wide Bf Goodrich T/As, and a Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes kit, and you start to see how this tribute knows how to keep its wild side under firm control.
The sale comes with the restoration receipts and photos so that you can follow this car's awesome and expensive transformation. This is the best of everything, and so you know your opportunity is fleeting. Call today!!!
