The Chevrolet Camaro is a mid-size American automobile produced by Chevrolet that is classed as a pony car and, in some versions, a muscle car.
It was meant to compete with the Ford Mustang and originally went on sale on September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year.
The Camaro shared its base and essential components with the Firebird, which was also released in 1967 by Chevy’s sibling business Pontiac.
The second-generation Camaro was introduced in February 1970 and produced through 1981, with visual revisions in the 1974 and 1978 model years.
The car was significantly restyled, and the new appearance made it somewhat larger and wider.
The redesigned Camaro, which was still built on the F-body platform, had a unibody chassis, front subframe, A-arm front suspension, and leaf springs to control the solid back axle, same as its predecessor.
An air induction hood scoop with an intake door that opened under full power was added on 1980 and 1981 Z28 vehicles.
In 1972, the RS SS package was phased down and then reinstated in 1996.
