1970 Chevrolet Camaro

General Overview

The 1970 Camaro beget the second-generation and featured many different styling cues.

The new car was longer, lower, and wider than the first generation Camaro. It was considered a gorgeous design inspired by European sports cars, and delayed production proved to be no match for its sales and production numbers.

1970 also marked the first time in the four-year history of the car that a convertible option was not offered.

The RS package included numerous cosmetic changes including a distinctive front-end look that most noticeably featured two front bumpers on the left and right of the nose of the car instead of the normal full-width bumper. It also included round parking lights and hidden windshield wipers.

The SS package contained a modified 350 V8 producing 300hp with an available 396 producing 350hp, along with simulated air intakes on the hood, special bumble bee striping, and a blacked-out grill. It was possible to order a RS/SS.

The Z/28 came standard with a 350ci, 350-360 hp V8.
