Chevrolet Camaro Officially Turns 50

Sep 30, 2016

Fifty years ago, on Sept. 29, 1966, an American icon was born when the very first 1967 Camaro was sold.

To commemorate the milestone, as well as Camaro’s illustrious past, which includes six generations and more than 5-million units sold, Chevrolet is celebrating with an interactive timeline, viewable at

The interactive timeline-utilizing an 11-by-60-foot mural created by Chevrolet, its advertising agency Commonwealth//McCann, and the design collective ILOVEDUST-allows users to explore artwork of each Camaro generation to uncover special photos and facts that showcase the Camaro’s rich history and its evolution over the course of five decades.

“Through the course of its iconic 50-year history, Camaro has been a reflection of the times, forging in passionate influences from customers, development teams and racing technology,” said Tom Peters, director of exterior design, Chevrolet Performance Cars.

Visitors to will also be able to enjoy highlights from this summer’s Camaro 50th Anniversary Celebration, which included a car show and tours at the Lansing Grand River Assembly plant; a Camaro Rally of approximately 300 Camaros that concluded at the Woodward Dream Cruise; and the 2017 50th Anniversary Edition coupes and convertibles.
