Chevrolet is throwing a golden anniversary party for the Camaro nameplate. With the first production Chevrolet Camaro being introduced 50 years ago this year, the brand revealed the 2017 Chevrolet Camaro 50th Anniversary edition earlier last month.
Before the special Camaro heads to customers, the brand announced serial number 001 will be auctioned off at Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach. 100-percent of the winning bid will directly benefit the United Way of Southeastern Michigan.
The 2017 Camaro 50th Anniversary edition has been decked out in Nightfall Gray Metallic with splashes of orange throughout the exterior and interior. Unique 20-inch wheels, satin gray grille inserts and “Fifty” badging signify the outside of the Camaro, while orange, color-contrast stitching and 50th Anniversary treatments on instrument panel, seatbacks, steering wheel and illuminated sill plates bolster the inside.
The Barrett-Jackson Palm Beach auction takes place between April 8 and 10, and we have a feeling the number 001 will have zero issues finding a home.
