1969 Yenko 427 Chevelle | Old Car
We go back over 40 years to investigate the Yenko Chevelle. Therefore, its
427 cubic inch engine has a solid lifter camshaft giving the V8 a choppy
idle that throbs out its dual exhaust.
With its 11:1 compression ratio and using fuel as an afterthought, a hit of the
throttle and the engine is ready to do what it was designed for and does best.
When punched off of the line, the 427 vibrates the entire car and the machine lunges
forward. The 4-speed Hurst shifter is a bit vague but the first to second gear change
lays down the second set of smoking black rubber marks.
