Bicycle of the Month
c. 1968 Huffy Camaro
The Huffy Camaro is both a testament to the classic Huffy frame as well as the second generation of American muscle cars. The first Chevrolet Camaro was issued in 1967 as a response to the wildly popular Ford Mustang produced in 1964. Chevrolet needed to create a design to compete and quickly complied models to create the Camaro. While admittedly not exciting to the production designers at Chevrolet, the Camaro won the hearts of the American car enthusiasts. To piggy-back on the success of the 1967 release, Huffy issued their bicycle in 1968. The recognizable Huffy frame, combined with the bold orange and sleek Camaro sticker became an instant hit. The Huffy Camaro became one of many bicycles considered an American classic by the kids of the late 1960s and 1970s.
