1986 Camaro

Overview

Third Generation (1982-1992)

During 1982 and 1993, the Camaro was redesigned by adopting an appearance similar to the present, with a front wedge-shaped and a group of optical depth in the grill. Thanks to the economic boom of the early 90's, the new models again offer the option of version cabrio open. The engines start to optimize by looking for a reduction in consumption, taking care not to lose the energy and power for which he became famous, this model, in the era of the pony cars. In this generation were offered engines of 2.5.

Only for the year 1987, the kit of the twin-turbo-was rather a-a option of a dealer-installed option in regular production. This includes a tachometer for racing, a kit of the twin-turbo modified based on GNX to Buick and 560 horsepower. Lights rear lights off was an exclusive option for the 1987 model, twin-turbo IROC-Z Camaro. Only three cars had the kit for twin-turbo. Chevrolet ensures a time of 0-60 mph of 4.3 seconds, a time of 0 to 100 of 9.3, and a quarter of a mile 12,29 seconds at 117 miles per hour.

Chronology

Successor

Chevrolet Camaro (second generation)

 

The first generation of the Chevrolet Camaro appeared in dealerships on September 29, 1966, for model year 1967 on a rear-wheel drive completely new GM platform F-body and would be available as a 2-door, 2 + 2 seat, coupe or convertible with a choice of six-cylinder and V8 power plants. The first-generation Camaro would last up until the year 1969 model.

Standard transmission Camaro was either a 230 cubic inch (3.8 L) straight-6 engine rated 140 HP (104 kW) or a 327 cubic inches (5.4 L) (307-cubic-inch (5.0 L) hereinafter in 1969) V - 8 engine, backed by a three-speed manual transmission Saginaw. There were 8 (in 67), 10 (in 68), and 12 (in 69) different engines available in 67-69 Camaros. And there were several options of transmission. A manual four-speed transmission is optional, replacing the base three-speed. The two-speed "Powerglide" automatic transmission was a popular option in 1967 and 1968 until the three-speed "Turbo Hydra-Matic 350" automatic became available starting in 1969. The larger Turbo 400 three-speed automatic was an option on the cars SS396 .

There were a lot of other options available all three years, including three core packages:

The RS was an appearance package that included hidden headlamps, revised rear lights with lights back under the rear bumper, RS badging, and exterior brilliant fit. It was available in any model.

The performance package SS consisted of a 350 or 396 cubic inch V8 engine and chassis enhancements for better handling and to cope with the additional power. The SS told the air inlets are not functional in the hood, striping, and SS badging.

The performance package Z / 28 was designed (with further modifications) to compete in the series, the SCCA Trans-Am. It included a solid-lifter 302 V8, 4 speed transmission, disc brakes in the power, and two wide stripes down the hood and trunk lid.

Almost all of 1967-1969 Camaros were built in two assembly plants in the USA: Norwood, Ohio and Van Nuys, California. There were five assembly plants of Camaro by the united States not in the countries that required assembly and local content. These plants are found in the Philippines, Belgium, Switzerland, Venezuela and Peru.

1967

The Camaro 1967 he shared the subframe / design semi-monocoque with the 1968 Chevy II Nova . Almost 80 factory and 40 options of distributor, including three core packages, were available.

The RS was an appearance package that included hidden headlamps, revised rear lights with lights back under the rear bumper, RS badging, and the fit of the rocker outer.

The SS included a 350 cu in (5.7 L) V8 engine and the L35 and L78 396 cubic inches (6.5 L) big-block V8's were also available. The SS told the air inlets are not functional in the hood, striping, and SS badging on the grille, front fenders, gas cap, and horn button. It was possible to order both the SS and RS to receive a Camaro RS / SS. In 1967, a Camaro RS / SS convertible with an engine of 396 paced the Indianapolis 500-Mile race .

The option code Z / 28 was introduced in December 1966 for model year 1967. It was an original idea of Vince Piggins, who conceived offering "virtually ready for the race" Camaro on sale in any shop of Chevrolet. [8] This option package was not mentioned in any sales literature, so it was unknown to most buyers. The Z / 28 option required front disc brakes-electric and a 4-speed close-ratio Muncie manual transmission (posi-traction is optional). Had a cu 302 in (4.9 L) small-block V-8 engine, 3 "crankshaft with 4" diameter, an intake manifold of aluminum, and a vacuum 4-bbl secondary carburetor Holley 780 cfm . The engine was designed specifically to race in the series Trans-Am (which required engines smaller than 305 cubic inches (5.0 L) and public availability of the car. Advertised power of this engine is the 290 HP (216 kW). This is an underestimated figure. Chevrolet wanted to keep the rated power less than 1 hp per cubic inch, for various reasons (for example, classes of insurance, and race). The rating of the factory 290 HP occurred at 5300 rpm, while the peak current for the high-revving 302 was closer to 360 horsepower (268 kW) (with the single four-barrel carburetor) and 400 horsepower (298 kW) (with-four double carburetors barrel optional) at 6800 to 7000 rpm. The Z / 28 also came with upgraded suspension, racing stripes on the top of the hood and the trunk, '302' emblems front fenders on the 67 and early 68 cars, and 'Z / 28' emblems in late 68 and 69. It was also possible to combine the Z / 28 package with the package RS.

Only 602 Z / 28s were sold in 1967, along with approximately 100 replicas Indianapolis Pace Car. The 1967 and 1968 Z / 28s did not have the cowl induction hood, optional on the 1969 Z / 28s. The Z28 1967 he received the air an air filter element opening or a duct from a plenum optional hood connected to a side of the air filter that runs up to the firewall and has the air ventilation ducts of the hood. Wheels of the meeting of the 15-inch is included with Z / 28s, while all other 1967-9 Camaros had 14-inch wheels.

The origin of the Z / 28 nameplate came from the RPO codes - RPO Z28 was the code for the performance package special. RPO Z27 was for the package Super Sport.

Cars assembled in Switzerland, in the local facilities of GM in Biel , were all coupés with the 198 HP (146 kW, 195 HP) 4638 cc (283 cubic inch) small-block V8 - an engine that was not available at Camaros contemporary, built in the united States. The Camaros swiss incorporated were not available with the three-speed manual and it had a differential lock and front disc brakes as standard. Some of the teams additional security was also standard.

The style of the Camaro 1968 was very similar to the design in 1967. With the introduction of Astro ventilation, a system of fresh air intake, removed the ventilation windows side. The side marker lights were added on the front and rear fenders which was a government requirement for the 68 vehicles. I also had a front grille more pointed, and divided taillights. The running lights front (models non-RS) were also changed from circular to oval. The great models block SS received inserts hood chrome that mimicked stacks of speed .

The mounting of the shock absorber is swayed to resolve the problems of hop of wheels and models of the major benefits received springs rear leaf, multi-units instead of a single sheet.

The Camaro 1969 carryover powertrain from the previous year and major mechanical components but all-new sheetmetal, except the top of the hood and the trunk, gave the car a sporty look substantially. The grille was redesigned with a cant heavy "V" and headlights deep insertion. New door skins, a panels, rear quarters, and panel of the rear frame, also made the car more spacious, looks more aggressive, much less. This style would serve only for model year 1969. Collectors often debate the merits of smooth, lines of 1967 and 1968 model face looks very wrinkled and more sport 1969 rounded.

To increase the competitiveness in the racing series SCCA Trans-Am, did four disc brakes on the castors with four-piston calipers available during the year, under RPO JL8, for US $ 500.30. This system of components used from the Corvette, and drove a significant improvement in the braking capability and was a key to winning the championship Trans-Am. The option was expensive and there were only 206 units.

The option Rally Sport (RS), RPO Z22, includes special grille painted black with hidden headlamps and headlight cleaning, stripes fender (except when the Z28 Performance Package, Special specifies the creation of bands or sports), simulated louvers rear fender, moldings opening of the front and rear wheel , black body sill, RS emblems on grille, steering wheel and rear panel, Rally Sport license plates front fender, rear lights accented bright, back up lights below rear bumper; Also includes bright slats of the ceiling on Sport Coupe. $ 131.65, 37.773 built. This option could be added to any other option (i.e., SS or Z / 28), making the model an RS / SS or a RS / Z28.

The option Z28 was still available with the small block cid 302. It was backed by Muncie four-speed with a shift lever standard Hurst new-for-69 and connected to a rear axle 12 bolt with 3,73 gears standard. The 302 Selected 11: 1 compression, forged pistons, forged-steel crankshaft and connecting rods, camshaft lifter solid, and Holley carburetor on an intake manifold dual plane. A double of four gorges intake manifold crossram was available as a dealer-installed option.

The model year 1969 was exceptionally long, extending into November 1969, due to manufacturing problem that delayed the introduction of the second generation model planned for 1970. It is a popular myth Camaros of the late '69's were sold as models 1970 (due to the advertising of GM images of the '69 Camaro labeled as a 1970), but all of them were assigned 1.969 VIN codes.

427s FLAKE

 

An edict corporate GM forbade Chevrolet from installing engines larger than 400 cubic inches (6,6 l). Requests from dealers (especially Don Yenko ) who were dealer-installing 427 cubic inches (7,0 l) engines in the Camaro from Chevrolet is caused when you use an ordering process usually used on fleet and special orders (taxis, trucks, etc) to offer 427 engines in the Camaro. Two orders of the Central Office of Production (COPO), numbers 9560 and 9561, were offered in the 1969 model.

The COPO 9561 used the L72 solid-lifter big block engine, making an underrated 425 hp (317 kW) gross. Yenko ordered 201 of these cars to create the now-legendary Yenko Camaro . Other retailers also realised that the engine package L72 and ordered it. Around 900-1.000 Camaros were equipped with the engine option L72.

The COPO 9560 used an all - aluminum 427 cubic inches (7,0 L) big-block called the ZL-1 and was designed specifically for endurance races. The package was designed for auto racing, Dick Harrell, and ordered through Fred Gibb Chevrolet in La Harpe, IL, with the intention of enter in the Super Stock NHRA Drag Racing . Were only 69 ZL-1 Camaros. The cost of single engine of more than US $ 4,000 more than the cost of a coupe V8 base. Though rated at 430 HP (321 kW) gross, the ZL-1 made 376 SAE net HP in its "as installed". With the exhaust changes and some adjustments, the power increased to more than 500.

The motors ZL1 is assembled by hand in a process that took 16 hours each, in a room that Corvette chief engineer Zora Arkus-Duntov described as "surgically clean." All motors ZL1 manufactured at the assembly plant in Tonawanda before being installed in Corvettes and Camaros, or sold over the counter to racers.

Two of the 69 ZL-1 is known to have landed in Australia , with both the property of legend of the motor racing local and multi-millionaire distributor of wheels, Bob Jane , with the two cars painted in the color of the team of Jane Sebring Orange. One of the Camaros was used by Jane for endurance races in Australia. Jane drove the other Camaro to win the 1971 and 1972 Championship Cars of Australia (the precursor to the current V8 Supercars ), even though due to regulation changes Jane was forced to replace the 427 engine with a 350 in 1972. The winner ATCC, which holds the record for the highest capacity of self to win the championship since it began for the first time in 1960 , since then it has been restored to its former glory and has been seen in numerous historical events around Australia.
