Car information

The first-generation Camaro debuted in September 1966, for the 1967 model year on a new rear-wheel drive platform 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 1967 to join the ranks commonly classified as pony cars. Automotive press at the time asked Chevrolet product managers, “What is a Camaro?” and were told it was “a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs.” Concerned with the runaway success of the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet executives realized that their compact sporty car, the rear engined Corvair, would not be able to generate the sales volume of the Mustang, so the Camaro was marketed as having the same conventional rear-drive, front-engine configuration as Mustang and Chevy II Nova. In addition, the Camaro was designed to fit a variety of power plants in the engine bay. It was available as a 2-door, 2+2 seating, coupe or convertible with a choice of engines from 250 cu in (4.1 L) inline-6 to the 396 cu in (6.5 L) V8 powerplants. Camaro popularity soared when a RS/SS Convertible with the 396 paced the 1967 Indianapolis 500 race.

Four distinct generations of the car were developed before production ended in 2002. The first-generation Camaro would last until the 1969 model year and would eventually inspire the design of the new retro fifth-generation Camaro whose production started on March 16, 2009.
