Member Midyear/Lance Hill who was ordering the Belmont cars could confirm but the story sounds like the 2x LT1 Novas sold @ Central Chev which were the only two not sent to Yenko.
One was known scrapped but other found by sYc Member Peter Simpson as this 2001 Feature link, still w/ his family since Peter's passing a few years back...

Ok I know of Pete's Nova. But why/how was one known to be scrapped and stayed there? Just like Strato's COPO Chevelle that was known scrapped, and he was told it was crushed by the yard owner, yet shows up fully restored a couple years ago?

The LT1 Nova I saw was silver 4sp but tubbed, with leaf springs and traction bars? This was late 80's early 90's, on within an hr of London Ontario, while on my way back from Sparta dragway. I wonder being that close to London if that might have been the 2nd car that was scrapped?

I recall Pete saying the second car was green. Supposedly, it had been wrecked.

The one I LOOKED at back then was silver. I remember the guy saying it was the Canadian version of a Yenko Deuce! That for me was the first time I heard the YENKO name. That car was for sale. I'm wondering if it actually IS/WAS the same car as Pete?

I never met Pete before his passing. But my crew chief on my car, his uncle built Pete ZL1 for the white Camaro. I also know of a couple guys that helped get that Camaro back to him after it was stolen.

350 top engine for that generation Acadian.

And, yes, Pete's car was 1 of 2 Novas that was sent over the border. Don't remember the story but it's not Canadian other than from where it was sold new.
