1971 Chevrolet Camaro Overview

At first glance, the 1971 Chevrolet Camaro remains largely unchanged in appearance. However, under the hood, lots was brewing.
The Camaro now came standard with front disc brakes, many safety features, all-vinyl upholstery (which was a good thing in 1971 ;)), carpeting, and a cigar lighter.
The basic Camaro engine was a 307-ci small-block V8, but the base SS was a 350-ci V8 rated at 270 horsepower. The top-of-the-line engine was available in the SS-396: the 402-ci L78 V8, rated at 300 horsepower. This represented a slight decrease from the year before. The Z28 also lost some power, dropping to just 330 horsepower from a peak of 360 in 1970.
