About the Camaro:
The Camaro has been manufactured as a pony car and went on sale on
September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year and was designed as a
competing model to the Ford Mustang. The car shared its platform
and major components with the Pontiac Firebird, also introduced for
Four distinct generations of the Camaro were developed before
production ended in 2002. The nameplate was revived on a concept
car that evolved into the fifth-generation Camaro; production
started on March 16, 2009.
Before any official announcement, reports began running during
April 1965 within the automotive press that Chevrolet was preparing
a competitor to the Ford Mustang, code-named Panther. On June 21,
1966, around 200 automotive journalists received a telegram from
General Motors stating, "...please save noon of June 28 for
important SEPAW meeting. Hope you can be on hand to help scratch a
cat. Details will follow...(signed) John L. Cutter - Chevrolet
public relations - SEPAW secretary."
On June 28, 1966, General Motors held a live press conference in
Detroit's Statler-Hilton Hotel. It was the first time that 14
cities were connected in real time for a press conference via
telephone lines. Chevrolet general manager Pete Estes started the
news conference stating that all attendees of the conference were
charter members of the Society for the Elimination of Panthers from
the Automotive World and that this would be the first and last
meeting of SEPAW. Estes then announced a new car line, project
designation XP-836, with a name that Chevrolet chose in keeping
with other car names beginning with the letter C such as the
Corvair, Chevelle, Chevy II, and Corvette.
He claimed the name, suggests the comradeship of good friends as a
personal car should be to its owner and that to us, the name means
just what we think the car will do... go. The Camaro name was then
unveiled. Automotive press asked Chevrolet product managers, what
is a Camaro? and were told it was a small, vicious animal that eats
The Camaro was first shown at a press preview in Detroit on
September 12, 1966, and later in Los Angeles, on September 19,
1966. Public introduction of the new model was on September 26,
1966. The Camaro officially went on sale in dealerships on
September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year.
The first-generation Camaro debuted in September 1966, for the 1967
model year, up to 1969 on a new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform
and was available as a two-door coupe or convertible with 2+2
seating, and a choice of 230 cu in , 250 cu in inline-6 or 302 cu
in, 307 cu in, 327 cu in , 350 cu in, and 396 cu in V8 powerplants.
Concerned with the runaway success of the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet
executives realized that their compact sporty car, the Corvair,
would not be able to generate the sales volume of the Mustang due
to its rear-engine design, as well as declining sales, partly due
to the negative publicity from Ralph Nader's book, Unsafe at Any
Speed. Therefore, the Camaro was touted as having the same
conventional rear-drive, front-engine configuration as the Mustang
and Chevy II Nova. In addition, the Camaro was designed to fit a
variety of power plants in the engine bay. The first-generation
Camaro lasted until the 1969 model year and eventually inspired the
design of the new retro fifth-generation Camaro.
The first-generation offered a standard, Super Sport, and Rally
Sport editions. In 1967, the Z/28 model was added featuring stripes
on the hood and trunk, styled rally road wheels, and a 302 cu in V8
engine. In the Rally Sport edition it was more the style of the car
itself. Placed with the hideaway headlights, wing windows, and the
more rounded out rear fender. Once they brought out the 1968 year
they introduced the use of side marker lights.
With the 1969 Camaro they did not have the wing windows as placed
on the 1967 as well as having a more flat drawn out rear
