Its truly amazing that Chevy/GM brought the Camaro to market roughly under two years from the Mustang's debut.

Actually a little over 2.5 yrs wasn't it?   from early 65/late 64 model to the Camaro at the std '67 introduction ...?



IF my dates/years are correct, Mustang was released as a 1964 1/2 model in April. Camaro debuted in September of 1966. So, I guess you are technically correct. Either way, getting a car production ready in such a short time is a momental task for such a large corporation like General Motors. However, I can see why: they wanted a piece of the new pony car pie aka money/market share!

Chevrolet was *thinking* that they were going to make the 'Corvair' their 'pony car' competition, but that idea went astray for many reasons... thus the 'Camaro' got a little bit of a late start..  :)



Yeh, thats right! Corvair 'styling' cues can be seen in the '67-'68 Camaro. By 1969, it really came into its own…and the rest is history.
Just another T/A fanatic. Current lifelong projects:
1968 Olds 442 W-30
1969 Mustang Fastback w a Can-Am 494 (Boss 429)
