Chevrolet finally responded to the Mustang with the legendary Camaro in September 1966. The new Camaro was introduced as a 1967 model and by the end of the model year, 220,906 Camaros were produced. The 1967 Camaro was hugely successful and this one model represented almost three percent of all car sales that year.
Body construction on the 1967 Camaro was semi-unitized; the front chassis is a sub-frame held by four rubber-isolated mounts, and rear chassis is part of the unibody. This design was intended to give a smoother and more quiet ride than a full unibody car, and also allowed maximum space for the already small rear seat and trunk.
