Chevrolet Camaro - An American Icon

 

Foreword

Chevrolet introduced the 1967 Camaro as it's entry into what would later be called the "pony car" segment.  Offered in coupe and convertible models, with 69 available factory-installed options and 12 dealer-installed options, the Camaro was designed as a competing car to the successful Ford Mustang.

 

 

First and foremost, the Camaro is to be a driver's car, which is reflected in it's handling, ride, high-performance engine availability and styling.  It was intentionally designed to do what the Corvette can do for less money.  And judging by its popularity, it accomplished this goal exceedingly well.  Although it has always been available with options to suit a wide range of sports-coupe buyers, performance has been what the Camaro brings to mind for most people.
