History

The 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is a classic mid-size American car manufactured by Chevrolet. It was designed to compete with the Ford Mustang and was released for the 1967 model year. The Camaro shared its platform with the Pontiac Firebird and four distinct generations were developed before production ended in 2002. The nameplate was revived and evolved into the fifth-generation Camaro, which went into production in 2009. Since its inception, over 5 million Camaros have been sold.

The first-generation Camaro was available in three models: Super Sport, Rally Sport, and the high-performance Z/28, which was introduced in December 1966. The Z/28 featured stripes on the hood and trunk, styled rally road wheels, and a special 302 cu in (4.9 L) V8 engine developed for Trans Am series racing. In 1968, front vent windows were removed, and safety side marker lights were added.

The Camaro was also one of the vehicles in the SCCA-sanctioned Trans-Am Series. Chevrolet collaborated with Roger Penske to operate their unofficially factory-backed Trans Am team, which won the title in 1968 and 1969 with Mark Donohue. Jim Hall’s Chaparral team replaced Penske for the 1970 season. The Camaro continues to be a beloved classic car among car enthusiasts and collectors.
