The second-generation Chevrolet Camaro was produced by Chevrolet from 1970 through the 1981 model years. It was introduced in the spring of 1970 Build information for model 123-12487 was released to the assembly plants in February of that same year. It was longer, lower, and wider than the first generation Camaro. A convertible body-type was no longer available. GM engineers have said the second generation is much more of “A Driver’s Car” than its predecessor. The car was heavily restyled and became somewhat larger and wider with the new styling. Still based on the F-body platform, the new Camaro was similar to its predecessor, with a unibody structure, front subframe, an A-arm front suspension, and leaf springs to control the solid rear axle. Road & Track picked the 1971 SS350 as one of the 10 best cars in the world in August 1971. RS (shown to the right), SS package was dropped in 1972 and reintroduced in 1996.
Daring to mess (however lightly) with success, Chevrolet equipped the 1978 Chevrolet Camaro with a new nose that put the big bumpers under soft plastic. Five models of 1978 Chevrolet Camaro now offered (sport coupe, Rally Sport, Type-LT, Type-LT Rally Sport and Z/28), and translucent T-tops were a new option. The Z/28’s full-disco body package (with front fender vents and a fake hoodscoop) was supported in ’78 with a revised version of the 350 V8 now rated at a better with horsepower.
