It represented the 1967 model year on a brand-new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform. You could get it as a 2-door, 2+2 seat, hardtop or convertible with a choice of six-cylinder and V8 power plants. The first-generation Camaro was built through the 1969 model year.” – And Mustangers shouted, “We Were First!” – Haa! Source: Camaro Wiki
