The Chevrolet Camaro has aged pretty damn well if you ask us. On September 29, 1966, the very first 1967 Chevrolet Camaro was sold, marking the beginning of a historic timeline.
The Chevrolet Camaro is undoubtedly a reaction to the Ford Mustang, but a knee-jerk one it was not. The Camaro inched its way through time, crafting its own story with passionate owners through six generation of the iconic nameplate.
To celebrate, Chevrolet has launched an interactive media site to look back on the Camaro’s history, starting with the first generation in 1967, all the way to the present with the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro. The site features a stunning mural, commissioned by Chevrolet and completed with Commonwealth//McCann.
“Through the course of its iconic 50-year history, Camaro has been a reflection of the times, forging in passionate influences from customers, development teams and racing technology,” said Tom Peters, director of exterior design, Chevrolet Performance Cars. “What has remained consistent is the beautifully simple and powerful sculpture that has stayed instantly recognizable to our customers and enthusiasts of all ages. I have the same passion today as when I saw a Camaro for the very first time. It just makes you smile!”
Cheers to fifty years, Camaro.
