1970 Chevrolet Camaro Kammback Concept

The idea of a two-door Chevrolet wagon was first revived with the 1970 Camaro Kammback concept, a two-door wagon that featured a conventional top-hinged tailgate and was reportedly due to hit Chevy dealers for the 1970 model year. Pontiac wanted its version of the two-door wagon as well, harkening back to the days when the two-door Pontiac Safari was the automotive cousin to the Chevy Nomad. Producing standard tooling for the F-body wagons could have made the endeavor cost-effective. Still, the story goes that Chevy and Pontiac stylists could not find common ground on door size and quarter panel shape issues. Knowing that such a product would appeal to a limited audience, and without an agreeable economy of scale, GM killed the idea before it progressed beyond the design phase.
