50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro

50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro

DURAND, Mich. – This September the Chevrolet Camaro will celebrate its 50th birthday! In preparation Chevrolet released the announcement of a 50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro earlier this year. With summer quickly approaching, Camaro fans are patiently waiting, as an official release date has yet to be set. Although we still don’t know much more than “Available Summer 2016,” here’s what we do know:

50th Anniversary Edition Chevrolet Camaro

The Camaro was born on September 26, 1966.

In their press release, Chevy stated, “…for millions of people, it was love at first sight. People have written songs about it, made movies starring it and told numerous Camaro stories in the years since. So to celebrate the 50th anniversary of one of history’s most epic cars, we created the most epic Camaro yet.”

The 50th Anniversary Edition is going to look really awesome. 

It will be available in both coupe and convertible models. The 50th anniversary edition Camaro will feature 20-inch wheels, a unique grille with satin chrome accents, orange brake calipers, Nightfall Gray Metallic exterior, a unique black leather interior, and other distinct 50th anniversary treatments.
Since that’s about all we know right now, here are some fun Chevrolet Camaro facts to hold you over until the 50th Anniversary Edition arrives:

It was almost called the “Panther”. 

“Camaro” is a completely made up word. GM considered a laundry list of other names before finally landing on “Camaro” only a few weeks before the official debut.

You can see the original Camaro on display. 

This summer during the annual Woodward Dream Cruise week in Detroit, thanks to the Historic Vehicle Association, the first Camaro will be on display to the public on August 20th.

It’s the third most popular collector car. 

Behind only the Chevy Corvette and the Ford Mustang.

The original Camaro had tons of engine options. 

Seven to be exact. One of the options, the Z/28, was a special performance package making the Camaro SCCA-race legal.

The Camaro has paced the Indy 500 nine times. 

That's the second most overall behind the Corvette at 11.

Camaro Celebrations

To celebrate the birthday of the Camaro, a number of festivities have been announced in the Detroit and Lansing areas. As well as the Woodward Dream Cruise display of the first Camaro, everyone who owns a Camaro is invited to "Camaros and Coffee." Camaro owners are invited to meet at Joe Louis Arena on August 19th, where there will be room for 500 cars. The event begins at 7:30 AM.

In addition to the Detroit area celebrations, the Lansing Grand River plant is holding a car show and open discussions with plant engineers. They are also offering tours of the plant, where Camaros are built.
