  • 1967 Camaro [ car-related ]

    The first Camaro model was the 1967, introduced on September 26, 1966. At the time of introduction, several important options were not available.  These included the RPO-Z28 Special Performance Package, and the 396-cid displacement engine for Camaro SS models.  The 1967 model was the only first generation Camaro to have both rear shocks mounted forward of the rear axle.  Later years changed to a staggered arrangement to counter wheel hop.  The 1967 was the only Camaro to feature a right-side traction bar, also to counter wheel hop.  The traction bar was standard equipment for all Z28 models, and was installed on other high performance models.
