Camaro White Book 1967-2011
In 2010, Camaro returned with a vengeance. First shown at the North American International Auto Show in Detroit in 2006, the Camaro made the transition from concept show car to street almost unchanged. The market has responded with banner first-year sales of 129,405, all coupes in five trim levels including two SS variants with versions of Corvette motors. For 2011, things rolled on with introduction of a convertible model. The Hurst shifter option was finally available after a year of being on hold. Nieman-Markus offered a specially-equipped, Deep Bordeaux Red 2011 Camaro convertible in its catalog for $75,000. It sold out in three minutes...
Sounds like it’s time for a new Camaro White Book.
The first Camaro White Book was published in 1985. New editions followed in 1987, 1993, 1997, and 2002. We thought that last one would be the last one. But Camaro came back and now the White Book has too. Just as the car has evolved, so has the book. Camaro White Books are still pocket-sized, but with thousands of Camaro facts, options and option codes, exterior and interior colors and codes, production figures, engine block and head casting numbers, original “window sticker” prices, and a compilation of the details that make each model unique. All this is presented year-by-year...tons of information in an accessible format. White Books have never been compilations of someone else’s inaccurate, incomplete charts. These are start from scratch, thoroughly researched, beautifully presented. And the latest 1967-2011 edition is far and away the best yet.
Better than ever
The latest Camaro White Book has been resized by adding nearly an inch to its height. The extra space permitted the addition of more data for every model year. For starters, the book now contains V8 engine block and head casting numbers for every Camaro from 1967 through 2011. Alan Colvin, author of the superb Chevrolet by the Numbers books researched and provided this data. To our knowledge, no other single book has attempted this. Historical context has been added by including the thoughts of writers “back in the day.” Complete 2010 data is presented including production volumes for options and colors. Introductory material for 2011 is covered, including option descriptions and pricing breakdowns for coupes and convertibles. Simply put, no other Camaro book comes close.
No one’s perfect, but after a quarter century of attention to detail, the Camaro White Book has become the enthusiast’s go-to reference. Next time you’re at a Camaro event, look what’s stuffed into the back pockets of the pros.
