The Chevrolet Camaro is surely one of the most iconic muscle cars ever to come out of the land of the free and the home of the brave.

The first generation of the Camaro, which was unveiled in 1966, was a landmark car for Chevrolet, and production ran through to 1969.

Local production took place at a number of General Motor’s manufacturing plants such as Norwood, Ohio and Van Nuys.

However, the Camaro was also assembled in the Philippines, Belgium, Switzerland, Peru and Venezuela.

The Camaro was made available to customers in either a two-door hardtop coupe or a two-door convertible.

There was an absolute plethora of engines made available to the first generation car, and these included a 3.8lt or 4.1lt inline six-cylinder and a 4.6lt, 4.9lt, 5.0lt, 5.4lt, 5.7lt, 6.5lt or 7.0lt V8.

The shove from this vast array of donks was sent to the rear wheels via either a three or four-speed manual or a two or three-speed automatic transmission.

This particular Camaro is a ’67 model with the 5.7lt V8 and automatic transmission and, according to the seller, the vehicle has had some choice modifications made to improve performance.

These modifications include a Turbo 400 transmission, 780 Holley, new extractors, 2.5-inch exhaust system and Boyd Coddington wheels.

The Camaro is $65,000 and anyone interested in this excellent American muscle car can view the full listing here.
