The mechanical equipment of the car is conventionally arranged with front mounted engine and rear wheel drive. Body-frame and isolated separate frame construction are combined in a practical new approach for a car of this size, to give the stipulated ride quality and manufacturing flexibility. The Camaro is, in effect, divided into four major construction groups:
- Bolted-on front end sheetmetal
- Unitized body construction with the rear framing elements incorporated into the underbody
- Driveline, solid driving rear axle and single leaf rear suspension conbinded into a simple and efficient Hotchkiss drive system
- A front chassis unit consisting of the engine, transmission, front suspension, front brakes, and steering gear and linkage mounted on a separate, extended rail partial front frame.
