1992 Chevrolet Camaro History
1992 was the 25th anniversary of the Camaro and last year for the 3rd Generation Camaro. 1992 also marked the end of Camaros being produced at the Van Nuys plant (the other original F-Body-only producing plant since the Norwood plant closed at the end of the 1987 model year).`Heritage Edition' package available on all 1992 Chevrolet Camaros. There were 8,197 '92 Camaro's made. Package included 1st and early 2nd Generation Camaro Z28 style hood and rear deck stripes, body colored grille, black headlamp pockets, a 25th Anniversary badge on the rear spoiler (RS) or hatchback rear edge (Z28), and a 25th Anniversary badge on the dash. Initially, Heritage package only available as a white car with red stripes; black car with red stripes; or red car with black stripes. Mid-year, additional Heritage Edition colors available: polo green car with gold stripes (this combination also got gold badges and gold accent wheels); and purple haze with silver stripes. Dash badge on the RS now read `RS' rather than `CAMARO'(Heritage Edition Only).`Tuned Port Injection' disappeared from the TPI throttle body cover. Mid-year, valve covers on TPI motors changed from silver to black (like LO3 V8). Also, at some point near the end of the production year, the traditional smooth-appearance Camaro TPI runners were replaced with rough, cast-appearance TPI runners (like on the Corvette L98). These runners were possibly old Corvette stock being used up on the Z28s since the Corvette's L98 was replaced by the LT1 in 1992.Z28 convertible came only with P235/55R-16 tires for 1992.There were 705 1992 1LE Camaros built.
HD calipers and 11.86 front brakes became standard on the B4C special service package. There were 589 1992 B4C Camaros built.
A Special 25th Anniversary ‘Collector’s Edition’ 1992 Chevrolet Camaro was planned, but then dropped. There were to be 602 (same as the number of 1967 Z/28’s) produced. Only two prototypes were completed however. The prototype Collector’s Edition Camaro started as a white Heritage Edition RS with black stripes and body colored grill. Then the B4C police package was added. It was equipped with the Corvette L98 5.7 aluminum head engine, fitted with siamesed intake runners, and then tubular headers. This brought the horsepower rating up to 270. They were also equipped with a ZF 6-speed and GTA black `lace' 16×8 wheels. Only 1 of the 2 cars were kept by GM and can still be seen at shows.
On August 27, 1992, the last 1992 Camaro rolled off of the assembly line in Van Nuys, California. This Camaro Z28, owned by ThirdGen.org member LeonardS, marked the last ThirdGen F-Body built as well as the final car from the assembly plant in Van Nuys, CA.
