1967 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
1967 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro is an American pony car which appeared in Chevrolet dealerships on September 29, 1966 for the 1967 model year on a brand-new rear wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as a 2-door, 2 plus 2 seater. The RS was an appearance package that included hidden headlights, revised taillights with back-up lights under the rear bumper, RS badging, and exterior bright trim. It was available on any model.
For consignment, an actual unmodified Camaro! Seems all the models we get in here are all modified in some way. This consignment retains its factory look, original order form, Protect-O-Plate, correspondence for repairs needed at the 1,000 mile checkup, and a Jerry MacNeish's Camaro High Performance LLC Certified Survivor.
Chevrolet was on their heels with the popularity of the Mustang and needed a quick and powerful home run to compete. Welcome to this consignment which is the first year version, and it shows the great lines, pony car long hood and short rear deck and has nicely preserved chrome trimmings. In the narrowed grille are a single rounded headlight on either edge, and just beside these a smaller round signal light and bezel. Front fenders seamlessly melt into doors which melt into the rear quarter panel. All gaps are well aligned, and no rust for this original which is bathed in factory matching Granada Gold paint. The roofline has a wonderful sloping B pillar and this mixes into the trunk deck which is short but effective. Horizontal taillights are showing near perfect with shiny bezels. There is a thin chromed bumper below framing the bottom of the car. Wheel well trimmings and some small factory mud flaps are on the rear. A nice rocker trim stretches between these wheel wells. 14 inch wheels with stock Chevrolet hubcaps are wrapped by thin whitewall 195/75R14's one all 4 corners. A true unaltered breath of fresh air for this 1967 Camaro.
A swing of the doors reveals more survivor original factory equipment and its all pristine. Gold door panels, clean handles and cranks and near perfect armrests are all here and showing nicely. Slipping inside we can plant ourselves on the low back nicely styled bomber style buckets in front. These are wrapped in gold vinyl and show with tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters on the edges. Very clean and a matching rear bench stretches across the back. Let's take a moment to feast our eyes on an angled gold painted dash that sports all original equipment, 2 deeply inset black gauges are in this angled dash, and you cannot miss them. Neither can you miss the near perfectly preserved steering wheel. Very good padding is on top and wrapped in gold vinyl. Like new gold carpeting is on the floors, and above is a tight headliner also barren in gold. All original, all showroom unadulterated styling inside this cockpit.
A flip of the hood and a mechanically sound although unrestored cosmetically 327ci V8 awaits our ooooohhhhhs and ahhhhhhhs. This codes to a March 22, 1967 V8 2bbl carb 210hp with a Powerglide 2-speed transmission, VO322ME just as the should say. Power to the rear tires goes through a 12-bolt 2.73 posi rear axle also correct for this car. Beautifully preserved and looking original with some paint chip off and smudging, but definitely original.
As with any frame off restoration, this undercarriage does not disappoint. Well coated in black, no rust and all solid unibody construction. Independent coil spring suspension is up front along with drum brakes, and on back is a leaf spring suspension with more drum brakes. All is looking good and tidied up underneath of this original.
A quick starter and off to the test track where it ran like a champ. I noticed the odometer reads 22,590 which are original miles. A great experience and a slice of what things were like in 1967.
Preservation of the original, no ladder bar add-on, no large tire scooped out wheel wells, no frills… just pure Camaro fresh out of 1967 looks and all in excellent condition.
