Thunder Road Classic Car Hire announced today the addition of an original 1967 Chevrolet Camaro V8 convertible to its fleet of classic American cars for self drive hire.


The first-generation Camaro debuted in the 1967 model year on a new rear-wheel drive platform and was designed as a competing model to the Ford Mustang and joined the ranks commonly classified as pony cars.  Automotive press at the time asked Chevrolet product managers, "What is a Camaro?" and were told it was "a small, vicious animal that eats Mustangs."  It was available as a 2-door, 2+2 seating, coupe or convertible with a choice of engines from 250 cu in (4.1 Litres) inline-6 to the 396 cu in (6.5 Litre) V8 powerplants.

Matt Eaglestone, the owner said: “I have searched extensively for some time for the right car to complement our Mustang and Corvette and with the Camaro I have found the perfect addition.  These three cars now epitomise the classic pony car era of the sixties and early seventies and will provide muscle car fans with a chance to experience the thrill of a driving a small (ish) classic American car with an awesome V8 engine.  Our new car is an original first generation 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible with the 327 cubic inch (5.4 Litre) engine, automatic gearbox, manual steering and manual hood. Finished in red with a very period red interior this rival to the Mustang really captures the feel of the muscle car era.”
