Story/Review: 1972 Chevrolet Vega Yenko Stinger in Orange Paint & Engine Sound

We’re looking at the 1972 Chevrolet Chevy Vega Yenko Stinger in Orange Paint.

The car’s Owner is Mark Hassett. Mark is a “Yenko Car Guy”. He has a Yenko Camaro, Chevelle, and Nova. All are painted Orange. So when he saw this one come up for sale, he wanted to have it to round out his Orange Yenko Car Collection

  1. Looks like a crossbreed between a Camaro and a Maverick.Engines were garbage

  2. One day my dad picked me up at school . We went to Smith chevy dealership in Gastonia NC . We walked into the showroom there it sat the factory HP Vega . Dad said your mother and I think this is the car for you . But my dumb ass had my heart set on a old Nova a friend had setting behind his house . What a mistake I made .

  3. I had a 72 that I dropped a 327 / 330 HP with a power glide transmission. It was a real sleeper. From 40 to 90 there wasn’t much that could touch it. I miss that one. Sold it to a high school kid and hr wrapped it around a phone pole 2 weeks later.

  4. Never knew Yenko did one of these Ed Boland. Tims neighbor has a Cosworth in mint condition. And he has his 63 Nova SS 327 4SPD he bought brand new also a 63 Nova rag top.

  5. Had a 1972 GT in 8 months driver’s side front fender rusted through on top fender, engine smoked so bad at 30,000 miles a guy next to me at a traffic light asked if I was cooking burgers under the hood, after two years had to get rid of it!

62/63 Galaxie 406 Tri power

FE Ford Engine 390, 406, or 427

Look like a old 390 Ford intake

Ford FE engine, 390, 427/8

440 six pack. 1970 Roadrunner. Mopar engine.

Definitely Ford from firing order.

Dodge or Plymouth 340 6 pack set up

390, 406, 427 FE Ford engines

406 Ford Hi-po FE engine.

It’s from a Ford engine the clue is it doesn’t run anymore 😂

Dodge or Plymouth six pack

Tri power ford 390 ,406 or 427

That's got to be out of a 1978 Chevrolet Chevette. The SS with the super double wing and sitten on 28s

2200 Chevy s10 engine

Had a ford firing order on the intake, but the valve cover seat on the intake is throwing me. Special intake for maybe a 351 clevor?

389 Pontiac 64 GTO

Definitely not Dodge it's from a Ford

Has to be Ford cylinder marks show 6-7-8 all on one side.

389 Pontiac tri-power 64-65 gto

Dodge - Plymouth - Chrysler 426 Hemi: the Elephant Engine

Firing order looks like Ford 390/427/428

this intake came off a 406 fe 1962 ford

Briggs and Stratton 5 hp mini bike engine.

Ford only !!!! 352,360,390, 406,403, and 428

Either 389 Pontiac Or Mopar
