Tim Allen became famous in the 90’s TV hit Home Improvement. There, Tim “The Tool Man” Taylor showed us all how the ideal 90’s family should be. Ok, maybe not, but it was still a super killer show. Allen also made a fortune while working on that show, becoming one of TV’s highest paid actors, which helped him afford this rarest-of-rare 1968 Camaro 427 COPO.
When the Camaro debuted in 1967, a General Motors corporate edict prevented it from carrying an engine larger than 400 in V8. Encouraged by the success of the 1967 model, Yenko continued to produce his Yenko Super Camaros for 1968. All of the 1968 Yenko Super Camaros started life with the L78 396 in 375 hp engine and close ratio 4-speed Muncie transmission. Here we see Jay Leno give the car a more in-depth look.
