Customer Cars – 1979 Camaros

Customer Cars - 1979 Camaros

1979 looked to be a fantastic year but teetered on the dumper with the gas crisis and problems with a certain peanut farmer. Despite the uncertainty, the 1979 Camaro set a sales record with 282,582 Camaros produced, including a record 84,877 Z28’s. Inside the car, the dashboard was redesigned, from the wrap-around style used since 1970 to a square style dash. The A/C vents (if equipped) were now part of the instrument cluster bezel. Some neat electronic gizmos were added, including Cassette tapes & CB radios and the required antennas.
