The Type LT fought the good fight, and had a great production run, but the folks at GM thought it was time to be replaced, so they ushered in the luxury oriented Berlinetta model for the 1979 model year.
The Camaro was redesigned again in 1974 and featured a newly redesigned bumper with a body colored fascia above the front bumper. The grille was now shovel-shaped and the rear taillights wrapped into the fenders.
Newly featured like-wire wheels and brushed aluminum panel between the taillights differentiated the 1976 Camaro from the ’75.
A new standard V8 outputting 140 hp was available, power breaks became standard, and 1976 also saw the introduction of the Landau roof.
The biggest news for the 1977 Camaro was the re-introduction of the Z/28. It was now its own separate model and not just an option. It was also the first year the Camaro outsold the Mustang for the first time ever!
