Great info!  I didn't realize that the Impala was built on the same line.  I noticed the 67 Impala grill behind the camaro at the drive off.  They must have done all the models together?

Yup, that picture is at LOS.
They made full-size cars along with Camaros. Then in 68 & 69, they also made Firebirds too.

The Ford Wixom plant made Continentals (front wheel drive unibody), Town Car, and the Lincoln LS (both full frame) - all on the same line. If you design the fixed points of the car right, you can build about anything on the same line.
These days, flexibility is the key so the OEM's can move production around as needed.

We did the same thing at Lordstown - built Impala/Caprice and Firebird on the same line from '67 to mid-'69, when the Firebird was moved to Norwood in mid-April.
