When Chevrolet began offering its iconic Camaro in the Fall of 1966, it became a huge success, selling almost a quarter-million units in each of its first three years. General Motors intended for the Camaro to be a mass-produced competitor to its crosstown rival, the Mustang. The corporation planned on attracting a wide scope of buyers, for a variety of reasons. It also knew how to tug at the purse strings of more enthusiastic customers with Camaro special editions.
This new book, Camaro Special Editions: 1967-Present by Matt Avery, hones in on all the enthusiast-centered Camaros that have been created since the car’s inception. There have been many books written about Camaros over the years, but there has never been one focused comprehensively on the special edition Camaros that resonated so soundly with hot rodders, racers, and retailers alike.
The book, Camaro Special Editions, also documents the many variants of Camaros that were produced by less-than-standard-production means, such as the vaulted COPO cars, and other dealer special editions, including Yenko, Dana, Nickey, Berger, Baldwin-Motion, Gorries, and Dick Harrell. Modern performance editions are covered as well, including Callaway, SLP, SVE, GMMG, Earnhardt, and more.
Camaro Special Editions provides detailed information on the most notable models from 1967 to today, including build numbers, production specifications for each special edition, and their collectability. There is also a QR code that unlocks over 70 additional pages full of charts, stats, options, and VIN numbers!
The 8.5 x 11” paperback (ISBN: 978-1-61325-491-2) features 192 pages with 426 color photos. If you savor those special edition Camaros and have a thirst for all things about them, then the book, Camaro Special Editions: 1967-Present is a must-have for your collection.
