1967 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
The 1967 Camaro appeared on the scene and the General instantly became a big player in the pony car wars. The Camaro had gotten ahead of the curve and was now a leader in the style department because the car already looked like a car from the early 70's even though that era was still 4 years in the future in October 1966. I can recall the first time I saw a first-generation Camaro in the October 1966 Popular Science new car preview edition. The 1967 Camaro was the star attraction when it debuted in the fall of 1966 and it gave the General an instant classic in the pony car battle.
For consignment a "worked" first generation Camaro. Maintaining its original color combination, but now with a 327ci V8 with a 2-speed Powerglide transmission and upgraded for more power and efficiency. This car presents in beautifully restored condition, and is a wonderful example with great paint, chrome, and larger engine. Read ON!
The newer versions of the Camaro are nice and all with their neoprene bumpers etc etc etc, however there is something about the simplicity of design with these earlier Camaro models. A thin grille, nice small bumper with actual chrome on it just below, and the hidden headlights which are just not seen on cars of today. With a very well-done Bolero Red respray covering the straight steel panels which are minding their gaps very nicely, there are minor faults, however really unremarkable. SS badging, a rocker chromed strip, nicely restored bumpers, shiny polished lip American Racing Torque Thrust wheels wrapped with blackwall Cooper Cobra radials, and ladies and gentlemen, we are ready to go. Oh, and let's rock and roll a little bit with a slightly raised rear suspension, and a super cool spoiler on the trunk lid. More SS badging for the rear along with the simple horizontal taillights and another small bumper below. Do not leave out the iconic front wrap around stripe in white. No hidden headlights here, just pure Camaro...Light it UP!
A swing of the door, and we are met with near showroom door panels in red vinyl with shiny window cranks, door handles and more badging just in case you forgot what car you are in. We're going in and plopping ourselves on the pristine red vinyl buckets, which grab you when you have a seat in them. Or grab your high school sweetheart and have some fun on the rear bench, which appears unused to this point, also in red vinyl. The angled dash front has the deeply embedded circular gauges and knobs, and in the center. We note temp and fan controls, and an aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette neatly mounted within this section of the dash. A trio of round white face gauges hang from the bottom, and in between the buckets a B&M Pro-Ratchet shifter resides within reach of the driver. Noted are very nice headliner and red carpet showing very little faults and fade. Dream ON!
Our biggest changes have taken place here where the original inline 6 cylinder has been replaced with a circa [hidden information]ci V8, (according to our crack decoder on the engine casting number). It sits within the nicely restored engine bay and presents with the correct Chevrolet orange painted block, polished and ribbed Edelbrock valve covers, and a chromed topped air cleaner cover. This mill ingests its air and fossils through an Edelbrock 4bbl carburetor and aluminum intake manifold. All this power is put through a 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission with an upgraded stall speed converter and back to a Mopar 8 3/4 rear axle with consignor stated 3.50 gearing. Crank that BABY!
No issues seen here, just straight unadulterated steel with no surface rust seen. Subframe connectors have been added to stiffen the chassis and headers feed down from the mill and send spent fossils to the rear of the car via Flowmaster mufflers. Disc brakes up front and drum brakes are on the rear and leaf spring rear suspension with traction bars keeps the rear firmly planted while independent front coil spring suspension braves those fast corners...Scrrrrrrreeetttch!
A good driver, quick starter, smooth shifter, and some good grabby brakes. The car rode smoothly, and the interior was spacious. It's great to be able to crank the windows down on a nice day and go for a spin so I can write about these fascinating cars!
A generation 1 first year pony car, completely restored, with an upgraded engine, some added SS badging, all surfaces interior and exterior are good to go, and in good working condition. "See the USA in your Chevrolet!"
