This is our Convertible Camaro version.
Yes, we know that a factory convertible was never produced. However, a prototype
Camaro Convertible was produced by the Chevrolet Design Studio and was proposed
for production. After much consideration Chevrolet never gave the 2nd
generation Camaro convertible the green light; saying due to the fact that only
10% of the 1969 Camaro production were convertibles, making the cost of tooling
and designing of the convertible cost prohibitive and also the stricter
government regulations coming for all American made roadsters. 1974 was the
last year for any factory made convertible for several years. To this day the
whereabouts of the 2nd generation Camaro convertible concept car is unknown.
The consensus is that Chevrolet destroyed the only one made. Think of what that
car would be worth today!
The second generation Camaros were produced from 1970 through 1981. These cars
all shared the same basic body with the exception of three different front
& rear fascia changes throughout the years.
There were Camaro convertibles manufactured from 1979-1981 by National Coach
Engineering. Chevrolet had a contract with NCE to deliver vehicles to NCE's
assembly plant in Port Sanilac MI. for the conversions, when completed they
would ship the new Camaro Convertibles to the delivering Chevrolet dealers for
the customer. Only approximately 400 convertibles were produced during this
time. There was even a 1979 Camaro convertible that appeared in an episode of
Here are photos of some Camaro Convertibles. Thanks to Durwood Keller.
