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 Charlie's Angels.
Here are photos of some Camaro Convertibles. Thanks to Durwood Keller.
Pricing for the Concept Camaro Convertible is $99.95
