Yenko was a chevy dealer, so I imagine there are still plenty of old chevys running around with Yenko dealer emblem on them.  Doesn't mean they were anything other than a regular everyday Chevy.

I think Yenko produced many vehicles not all of which were copo cars. In the town next door to where I am there is an A title original owner Yenko Nova with all the documentation. Its got all the trim, the seats, the whole Yenko package on it except that its a 350 with a turbo behind it. Its in show condition but the owner rarely takes it anywhere because hes tired of listening to know it alls calling it a clone or a fake.

There is a guy in Southern Ca. that swears he has a Yenko ElCamino and has been wanting big bucks for it for quite awhile.

Yenko Deuce Novas had 350's so why would people think it was a fake ?

The reason why I ask is I know someone who is looking to buy one. It has a 427 in it. The owner of the car has a letter from Don Yenko stating the car is real Huh I have not seen the letter personally. Could we not know about this possible gem. Or is this a car that got a restamped big block thrown in it and some yenko treatments to creat the illusion....  Who knows??.... Danny

It would be fun to find out. Keep us updated. I'll be the first to say maybe not, but at that time almost anything was possible.
