Yenko Camaro 427: One of the most interesting Camaro’s made were these by Don Yenko. In a similar fashion that Caroll Shelby modified Mustang’s, Don Yenko did the same with Camaro’s. The Yenko Camaro’s were notably fitted with 427 Corvette V8’s which provided some 13 sec quarter mile performance straight from the show room floor in stock form.
Check the number plates on this car, COPO, which is a reference to the Central Office Production Order used by GM at the time for special request vehicle builds. Don Yenko ordered these from the factory and then completed the cars with stripes and other details.
