If you owned an authentic ’69 Yenko convertible, it would most likely seldom see the light of day. For Tom and Diane Pattan of Brooklyn Park, Maryland, they enjoy devouring the miles in their immaculately cloned blue metallic that’s packed with a heavy-breathing 427 filled with TRW slugs, urged on by a Comp Cams stick, and sucking air through a Holley 850 cfm carb. The American racing Torque Thrust –D wheels are just the final icing on the cake.
This just-completed ’68 SS owned by Greg Hess of York, Pennsylvania, is set on “kill,” thanks to a perfectly designed stance from Detroit Speed & Engineering, complemented by a combination of 18- and 20-inch Billet Specialties wheels topped with Nitto rubber. Awash in Butternut Yellow, it gets plenty of go from a stroked 383-inch small-block topped with aluminum heads.
