A winner huh? Is that why the Q panels couldn't be built right? And it took ten years for production numbers to reach that of 69 again?From NastyZ28 site : 1970 saw the introduction of the all new Second Generation Camaro. The 1st generation Camaro (1967 - 1969) was seen as a hasty response to the Ford Mustang. It was considered a compromise by some critics. There would be no compromises with this car. Due to production delays the 1970 Camaro was introduced in February 1970, half way into the production year. Because of this, some people will call the 1970 Camaro a 1970 1/2, but officially the car is a 1970 model year Camaro. Good things come to those who wait, and this car was met with rave reviews from nearly everyone. Chevrolet had a winner that would run for 12 years.
There is no denying that the VIN determined the Year of production but there where many cases where 69 models were registered as a 70 by the MVR. By End of January Dealers where selling both Models as NEW Cars in 1970 which is unique in Camaro History.70 1/2 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Coupe
you're not going to see that. the 1/2 is just something mostly used by the public because of the car coming out late.I'd really like to see a title that says 1970½ on it too.
"701/2" was not originally "coined" by the public but by GM Advertising and the public followed suit. Check out this Official General Motors Media Archives of a 1970 1/2 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Coupe Advertisement ;o)1/2 is just something mostly used by the public
A title that says 1970½ is ridiculous but License Plate # would be interesting.the VIN determined the Year of production
Do you mean L78? You wrote 1969 L78 with 4.10 true trac justA winner huh? Is that why the Q panels couldn't be built right? And it took ten years for production numbers to reach that of 69 again?
Also hasty???? The Mustang came out in 64, the Camaro in 67. What's hasty about that? And the first gen's are THE classics. Compare them to Mustangs of the same year and even other pony cars ever produced and you'll see why. Better thought out with better engineering and better 'value'.
Who ever wrote that wasn't born soon enough and had to buy a second gen. :yes:
Cameraman Fred had purchased the engine for his Camaro before he purchased the car. IIRC he had all the parts he pulled off stored in his mother's basement. I hold Fred in high regard as he was an original owner that purchased his Camaro new and preserved it up to his death. May he rest in Peace.Do you mean L78? You wrote 1969 L78 with 4.10 true trac just
