1969 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 By 1969, the Camaro was extremely popular. Sales had steadily increased during the first years of the Camaro and set a new all-time high, thanks to its long production run (from September 1968 through February 1970). The 1969 was given an updated look that was meaner than the grace­ful 1967-1968 models. It had a more aggressive grille, slightly squarer body panels, and squared-off rear wheel openings. Out back, new multi-sectioned rear taillights were used. Up front, partially see-through headlight covers were used with the Rally Sport grille package (previous RS headlight covers were solid panels).

For the first time, the general public could order RPO Z11, which delivered the special Indy 500 exterior package (fitted to a total of 3,675 cars).

Engine options were at an all-time high with the 1969 Camaro, as 14 different power plants were available. A traditional array of potent small- and big-block V8's were optional, but un­der a special ordering procedure, a 1969 Camaro could be fitted with 2 different killer 427 V8's. Central Office Production Order (COPO) No. 9560 netted the ZL1 option that delivered an aluminum-block, aluminum-head 427 V8 that was an all-out race engine. A total of 69 ZL1's were produced, which makes them prime collectibles. In the same vein, ordering COPO 9561 netted an RPO L72 425hp, iron-block 427 V8 originally fit­ted to a '66 Corvette.

Suspension offerings in 1969 weren't that much different from those in 1967-1968, but there was a special RPO JL8 option that netted factory-installed, power 4-wheel disc brakes. The JL8 option wasn't very well known and was an expensive upgrade ($500.30). As a result, a total of only 206 were actually built.

Inside, the Camaro was similar to the 1967-1968 offerings but featured a new dash fitted with square-shaped instruments. Although a manual transmission was popular, the 1967-1968 shifter linkage was extremely vague. Thus, in 1969, manual-trans Camaro's were fitted with positive-shifting linkage from Hurst.

New muscular-looking sheet metal added to agressive style, and also it had aniImproved theft-deterrent steering column.

In 1969, John Z. DeLorean was general manager of Chevrolet Motor Division.

It was another good year for the redesigned Camaro as production of 243,085 cars was realized in the model year. That represented 2.9% of total U.S. industry production and compared to 235,151 cars and 2.8% of industry in 1968 and 220,906 cars and 2.9% of industry in 1967.

In May 1969 "Car Life" magazine road tested a 375-hp SS (Super Sport) 396-cid Camaro with the close-ratio 4-speed manual transmission and cold-air-induction hood. The car did 0 to 30 mph in 2.6 sec., 0 to 60 mph in 6.8 sec., 0 to 100 mph in 15.6 sec. and the quarter mile in 14.77 sec. at 98.72 mph. It had a top speed of 126 mph.

Many special high-performance 1969 Camaro's were created by performance-oriented Chevrolet dealers as so-called COPO (Central Office Production Option) cars.

In round numbers the total included 36,500 6-cylinder (I-6) cars and 206,500 V8 engine-powered Camaro's. Of the total production, 211,922 Camaro's were built at the Norwood, Ohio, plant (which also built 23,516 Firebirds). Another 31,163 Camaro's (and 21,366 Firebirds) were made at a factory in Van Nuys (Los Angeles), California. The total included 12,316 cars built for export. Camaro sales for calendar-year 1969 came to 171,598 units for a 2.03% share of the industry total. That compared to 213,980 (2.50% of industry) in 1968 and 205,816 (2.7% of industry) in 1967.

Of the 200,213 Camaro's built in the model year, 57.6% had automatic transmission, 23.9% had a 4-speed manual transmission, 15% were equipped with an I-6 (Inline 6-cylinder) engine, 45.8% were equipped with a standard V8 engine, and 39.2% were equipped with an optional V8 engine.

84.6% had an AM radio, 3.6% had an AM/FM radio, 2.8% had a stereo tape player, 57.3% had power steering, 6.7% had power drum brakes, 29% had front disc brakes, 1.4% had power side windows, 100% (All) had bucket seats, 41.1% had a vinyl top, 47.5% had white sidewall tires, 1.2% had a tinted windshield (only), 47.2% had all-tinted glass, 18.1% had air conditioning, 21% had a limited-slip differential, 46.2% had optional wheel covers, 19.2% had optional styled wheels, 21.7% had an optional clock, 3% had tilt steering and 26.4% had dual exhausts.

A total of 172,459 new Camaro's were registered in the U.S. during calendar year 1969, down from, 209,822 in the 1968 calendar year, 204,862 in the 1967 calendar year and 41,100 in the 1966 calendar year.

Chevy built 211,922 Camaro's at Norwood in 1969, plus an additional 31,163 more in Van Nuys for a grand total of 243,085 Camaro's produced.
