1969 Chevy Camaro Z28


Vintage Chevrolet Camaro Brochures
Chevy revealed the image it wished to project for its newest car by putting a Super Sport edtion on the cover of a brochure for the very first Camaro, the 1967 model.

Chevrolet introduced the Camaro for the 1967 model year and made high-performance central to the car's appeal from the very start. On this page is a selection of brochures touting the curvacious new pony car's wilder side.

For 1967, SS equipment added $210 to the $2,572 Camaro Sport Coupe or $2,809 convertible. It included the new 295-bhp 350-cid V-8. The hood vents were decorative, not functional.
To suggest a road-grabbing stance, all 1969 Camaros were "huggers." The SS on this brouchure cover combines the hidden-headlamp Rally Sport package with the optional ($42) body-color front bumper to fine effect.
Chevy wasn't shy about pitching the '69 SS Camaro's performance attitude in print or, through bright hood vents and bold body stripes, in the metal, either.
