The first generation Chevy Camaro was a popular sports car that saw production from 1966 to 1969, with the 1967 model being the first of the generation one Camaros. It was a two-door automobile that came as a convertible or hardtop, and it had a 2+2 seat configuration inside. While the baseline version of the Camaro was built with an inline-six, the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 came with an impressive 302cu V8 engine. This is because Z/28 series were built for performance – more specifically, racing – and were designed to compete with other powerful muscle cars of the 1960s.
The fact that one could buy a Z/28 and drive it straight to the race track from the showroom floor made this Camaro model especially popular. It also came with a four-speed manual transmission, which was an upgrade from the three-speed manual that came standard with baseline Camaros, and better brakes. This made the Z/28 a popular choice for sports car enthusiasts who were looking for a car that could outperform other cars on the road.
