Ford’s powerful Mustang received a competitive answer from the first-generation Camaro. Due to its groundbreaking design, when Mustang entered the American market in 1964, it almost eliminated all of its rivals. In response, Chevrolet came out with the Camaro, the brand’s first pony car, which debuted in 1967 and featured a comparable long hood, short rear. Many people, however, think that it was a hurried approach that resulted in a few concessions. In order to address these issues and compete with the upgraded Mustang series, Chevrolet released the Camaro’s second generation, which had a redesigned design and enhanced engine performance. In comparison to the previous generation, according to the GM engineers, it was much more like “A Driver’s Car.”
The Camaro’s Super Sports were required for the SS 350 model, hence the SS trim.

The SS 350’s basic mechanical components were relatively identical to those of the first generation, but every other aspect had been enhanced. The front subframe was attached to a unibody chassis. To increase the car’s structural integrity, the front subframe was rebuilt. The length and width of the car’s body as a whole were expanded by 2 inches and 0.4 inches, respectively. The car had a 108-inch wheelbase but was 1.1 inches lower than earlier models. Longer doors allowed for easier access to the rear seats while widening the track by 0.7 inches in the back and 1.7 inches up front. To support the “Pony Car” theme, the roof was more slanted and relocated backward.
A naturally aspirated Small Block 16-valve V8 petrol engine was installed in the Camaro’s SS 350 Rally Sport of the second generation. This power plant produced a maximum torque of 515 nm at 3200 rpm and 300 horsepower at 4800 rpm. A 4-speed manual gearbox system was used to send the power to the rear wheels. The 14-inch wheels used by the SS 350 provided exceptional stopping power, which was supported by Vented Disc brakes up front and Drum brakes down back.
