Identifying Original Yenko USA 1 Plate

Hey Guys, got an original Yenko Plate on my nova I just purchased. I know the different saying are for different years and that these can be pretty valuable. Anyone know what year said " Putting you first...Keeps us first!"?

I have done alot of searching and have found it listed mainly as 69 or 70 but very much is contradictory.
THANKS!

I think you need to go to camaros.net or chevelles.com both GREAT sites for Camaros and Chevelles.

Those have been known to sell for pretty good money. There's been many discussions of what years said what. From what I've seen... 69 and part of 1970 said " Putting you first...Keeps us first".

If your thinking of selling it... do some more research before you let it go.

That's what I am hoping for! I hate dealing with ebay anymore but it will hopefully be worth it. Just found out that the carb I got on the nova I just picked up that I thought was a 750cfm was actually one custom built by Barry Grant himself pushing closer to 1000cfm. So it looks like that will being going on ebay as well so I can get a more street friendly carb.
