1969 Chevrolet Camaro

The 1969 Camaro has been voted the "Best Chevy of All Time" in an online polling campaign that was launched as part of the American car brand's centennial celebration this year. In the four-round, knock-off bracket format, the 1969 Camaro got 25,058 of the 124,368 votes cast, edging out the 1970 Chevelle SS in the final round.

"Today, the ’69 Camaro has become one of the best examples of timeless design in the industry," Tom Peters, Chevrolet design director, said. "Like the very best designs, the Camaro is much more than just a machine because it evokes powerful emotions in people of all ages. That’s why we looked to the ’69 for inspiration when designing the fifth-generation Camaro, and why the ’69 Camaro is an example of the timeless vehicles Chevrolet will strive to deliver for the next 100 years."

In winning the polling contest, the 1969 Camaro had to beat 15 other iconic Chevrolets: 1912 Classic Six, 1932 Deluxe Sport Roadster, 1936 Suburban, 1948 Pickup, 1953 Corvette, 1957 Bel Air, 1962 Impala, 1963 Corvette Sting Ray, 1964 Malibu, 1969 K Blazer, 1970 Chevelle SS, 1989 Pickup, 2009 Corvette ZR1, 2010 Camaro and 2011 Volt.
