The first-generation Chevy Camaro began its debut in September 1966, in response to the release of the Ford Mustang. At that time GM and Ford were battling for the number one sales position in the automotive industry and GM was hoping the Camaro would put them back on top.
Of all the first and second generation Camaros, the 1969 model stands apart as the most unique of its group. It’s body style inspiration can been seen in today’s 5th generation Camaro. The 1969 model was given an updated look in comparison to the 1966-68 models; it had a more aggressive grille, somewhat squarer body panels, and squared-off rear wheel openings. In addition the ‘69 Camaro had a heavy “eye brow” crease along both sides of the car all the way from the front wheel well to the rear wheel well, creating a look that was both very impressive and very distinctive.
Over the last 45 years many alterations have been made to the Camaro, but the one thing that hasn’t changed is the fact that the Camaro is one of the major powerhouses of the muscle car world. Chevy Camaros can be seen in auto shows across the country and have become a coveted auto enthusiast collectable.
All in all, the Chevrolet Camaro has been a force to be reckoned with since its conception in 1966.
