1969 Chevrolet Camaro

The ‘69 Camaro won numerous accolades and had the honor of being the Indy 500 pace car in the year of its release. It continues to be seen as a design/styling triumph, and inspired the fifth-generation Camaro when Chevy revived the model in 2010.

Almost a quarter-million (243,000) ‘69 cars were sold, a number that wouldn't be eclipsed in annual Camaro sales until 1978. According to Brauer, this Camaro could arguably be the most iconic model of the entire muscle car era.
