The Chevrolet Camaro was a “pony car” introduced by General Motors in 1967 to compete with the Ford Mustang, which BTW was conceived to fight against the Chevrolet Corvair Monza. There are four distinctive generations of Camaro’s, 1967-1970, 1970 1/2 – 1980, 1982-1992, and the 4th and final generation was 1993-2002.

The first generation Camaro featured a unibody construction from the windshield to the firewall back and a new steel frame for everything upfront. The first Chevrolet Camaro was available in both convertible and hardtop styles. There were eighty factory options and forty dealer options available for the Camaro. The Camaro was offered with engines ranging from a 230 cubic inch six cylinder to a 327 V8.

The first generation SS package was the hottest. It offered a modified 350 cid V8 with an available 396 massive block manufacturing 325 hp.

There were insignificant changes made in the 1968 Camaro like multi-leaf rear springs. In 1969 the Camaro was redesigned inside as well as outside. The Camaro received a make over including fenders, door skins, grille and taillights to mention only a few. There was a new dash and more comfortable seats. A V8 427 cid was also available.

The 2nd generation of Camaro lost some of it’s power thanks to the tightening emission regulations and a fuel crisis. The 155 hp 250 cubic inch V6 was the standard engine offering. The largest engine available was on the SS mode, a 350 or 375 hp 396 big block V8.

The third generation of Camaro saw the introduction of the IROC-Z, named after the International Race of Champions. Along with unique graphics the IROC featured a Tuned Port Injection that produced 215 hp.
