The Original Camaro (1967-1969)
On September 29, 1966, the Camaro legend was born as a direct response to the popular Ford Mustang. The Camaro and its sister — the Pontiac Firebird — were engineered to provide the average driver with a sports car experience.
The original Camaro donned a short deck, long hood, unitized body construction, and seating for four. In the beginning, there were two Camaro models: the Convertible and the Sport Coupe. These vehicles were shipped with no less than 60 factory options, and four of those options were the engines. You could choose from the incredibly powerful 396 V8 or the 250 cubic-inch straight six.
The performance-oriented Camaro Z28 special package featured 302 cubic V8 engine, and it was certified for stock racing! Only 600 Z28 models sold in 1967, which makes it extremely rare and popular today.
