HISTORY/APPEARANCE The car's story begins at Ammon R. Smith Chevrolet of York, Pennsylvania, the firm made famous by Dave Strickler and his legendary Old Reliable drag cars. According to area muscle car historians, Ammon R. Smith received shipment of three 1970 Yenko Deuces and, as of the late 2000s, one of the cars was still unaccounted for. It made perfect sense for this particular dealer to have a nice portfolio of the super rare Novas, since it was only 225 miles from Yenko's garage. What didn't make sense was the fact that one of the cars had essentially vanished sometime in the previous two decades. After talking with local gearheads, a guy by the name of Skip Lecates made it his personal mission to track the mysterious third Deuce and, after following many leads, met a mechanic who recalled working on the Nova. According to the mechanic, the car was purchased by a couple who lived out in the sticks and, over decades of ownership, had never changed hands. With a combination of gut instinct and verbal directions, Skip located the family and asked the whereabouts of their storied Chevy. That family, York residents Brenda Baldwin and her dearly departed husband, had purchased the car new in June of 1971. The Nova stickered for over $5,000 and, because that price put it firmly in Cadillac territory, had racked up 500 miles languishing in Smith's showroom. Brenda wanted the coupe, but she didn't really care for its automatic transmission. However, since the Baldwins were dyed-in-the-wool muscle car fans, and her husband was exhausted from shifting gears all day at his job, they offered the dealer $4,600 and eventually drove off in one of the coolest Chevrolets ever produced. For the next 17 years and 123K miles, the completely unmodified Deuce would serve as Brenda's fun daily driver. And in 1988, the car was retired to a semi-trailer on the Baldwins' property, not seeing the light of day since. Even though Skip made several offers, Brenda wasn't willing to part with her 1-owner gem. That is... Until May of 2012:http://www.hotrod.com/cars/featured/mscp-1209-1970-chevy-yenko-deuce/ when the car was rolled out of the trailer, snakes and all, in solid, original condition sporting faded Yenko paint, one-of-a-kind Yenko accessories and a numbers-matching, Yenko-spec drivetrain.
