When it was introduced, the 1969 Chevy Camaro was unlike any other muscle car or sports car at that time. Chevrolet understood Americas need back then for style and power, offered at a lower price point.
The Camaro had the long, lean look of its sports car cousin, the Corvette. It had the Corvette muscle too, with a 210-hp 327 V8 standard. Other V8’s available to order ran all the way up to a 325-hp Tubo-Jet 396.
