After two years of watching the phenomenal success of the Ford Mustang, for the 1967 model year General Motors retaliated with the introduction of the CHEVROLET CAMARO, in doing so helping to set in motion the great Muscle Car Era.
A number of engine and transmission options were available and the outstanding example you see here today is an RS, the most sought-after variant of the Camaro. It is readily identifiable from other models by the full-width black grille with concealed headlights.
The engine is a 327 cubic inch (5,4-litre) V8 fitted with an Edelbrock kit including a four-barrel carburettor, high performance distributor and a complete Flowmaster exhaust system. It produces around 330 kilowatts at the flywheel. Transmission is a Muncie four-speed and with a 3,4:1 diff ratio the drivetrain has been set up for optimum acceleration in 400-metre sprint events. A racing, multi-leaf rear suspension and more powerful brakes are also part of the specification.
