The last time the Chevrolet Camaro outsold the Ford Mustang for a full year was in 1985. Well, history may repeat itself this year. The 2010 Chevrolet Camaro outsold the new 2010 Ford Mustang in June 2009 9,320 to 7,362. The last time the Camaro outsold the Mustang in a monthly sales race was October 1993 – during when Chevy sold 10,985 Camaros and Ford sold only 5,680 Mustangs.
GM’s vice president of sales, service and marketing Mark LeNeve, said that nearly every 2010 Camaro sale in June was retail and that the figure was nearly double the number GM expected. LeNeve said that the new Camaro sold the best in California and that GM only has a six-day supply left of the model, reports Automotive News.
Dealers have reported selling the 2010 Camaro right of the delivery truck with some customers paying as much as $500 over the sticker price.
