The Chevrolet Camaro First Generation SS was one of the high-performance versions of the first generation Camaro which saw production from 1966 to 1969. The SS model is arguably one of the most popular versions of the first generation Camaro, as it comes with a number of performance upgrades that the baseline model doesnt have. Instead of the standard 3.8-liter inline-six engine, SS owners were able to choose from a 5.7-liter or big-block 6.5-liter engine, both of which are V8s. In addition, the Camaro SS also had a few cosmetic modifications, like air inlets and racing stripes, which set it apart from the baseline model.
Overall, its popularity mostly stemmed from being one of the most popular sports cars in the 1960s. For this reason, a first generation Camaro SS is still a coveted automobile among muscle car collectors. It came with the choice of a four-speed manual transmission, a two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission, and a three-speed automatic transmission that was introduced in the first generations final year.
