Chevrolet fans have voted the 1969 Camaro to be the best Chevy of all times, being appreciated for the iconic easy-to-spot design and also for the fact that it had a ZL1 version, equipped with a high performance aluminum engine.
“Chevy produced its second Camaro Indianapolis 500 pace car and offered replicas of the white RS/SS convertible with orange stripes and orange houndstooth upholstery to the public. In addition, two radical Camaros were produced in extremely limited numbers under special Central Office Production Orders (COPO) 9560 and 9561”, said the GM Heritage Center.
The fact that the 1969 Camaro was named the best Chevrolet of all times was highly appreciated by its company’ design director, Tom Peters: “The ’69 Camaro has become one of the best examples of timeless design in the industry”, said the GM official.
An interesting fact is that during the creation of the original Camaro, William L. Mitchell, the boss of General Motors, didn’t listed it as one of his favorites, along with the 1963 Corvette Sting Ray, the 1970 Camaro and the 1977 Caprice.
Chevrolet fans have voted the 1969 Camaro the best Chevy of all times as part of the company’s 100th birthday celebration and the iconic car had to beat the 1970 Chevelle SS and the 1957 Bel Air.
