BIG BLOCK 454 POWER, BUCKETS W/ HORSE SHOE SHIFTER, NEW AMERICAN RACING WHEELS
There aren't many better ways to have fun in a car than with a first-generation Camaro. This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro hardtop definitely has the right look and with a built 454 under the hood, it has the horsepower to back up its street-fighter looks.
So it's not a real SS, who cares? Cars like this Camaro aren't about documentation and numbers, they're about making noise and going fast. According to the cowl tag, this one was originally Bolero Red, but today it's finished in icy cool silver that gives it a very smooth, clean look. Add a chin spoiler, a ducktail spoiler, and a black SS stripe around the nose, and you give one of the most iconic muscle cars of all time a modern twist. Fit and finish are quite good, with sharp panel alignment and both doors close with a solid feeling, indicative of a car that hasn't been wrecked or rusty. It's also got a cowl-induction hood but no fake SS badges, so it's very sanitary. They invested a decent amount of time in the finish, so it has a wonderful shine that will look great for years to come, and if you gave it a professional cut and buff, this car would stop traffic.
Chevy called the Strato buckets "standard" but one look at the handsome seats and you'll know it's anything but. With a lot of new equipment, you'll be tempted to spend a lot of time in there, and the seats are comfortable enough for long hauls. Relatively recent carpets, door panels, and a taut headliner give it a tidy look and feel, and a center console is a highly desirable option. The steering wheel is brand new and has exactly the right look, framing a set of original gauges that still look pretty good. For modern entertainment, there's a digital AM/FM radio that fits neatly in the original slot with no cutting, and power steering and brakes are included. There are no surprises awaiting you in the trunk, either, with what appear to be original floors wearing spatter-finish paint.
The Camaro was designed to handle big block engines from the start, so fitting a 454 cubic inch V8 wasn't a big deal. It looks like it belongs there with Chevy Orange paint on the block and heads, although the chrome dress-up parts give it a flashy look. There's a QuickFuel Slayer 4-barrel carburetor on top of a brand new aluminum intake, a set of long-tube headers, and a big aluminum radiator with electric fans to keep everything cool. The inner fenders and firewall are painted body color to give it a semi-custom look without straying too far from original. A 3-speed automatic transmission feeds a 10-bolt rear out back, so you don't have to worry about breakage when you mash the throttle. A clean undercarriage suggests a car that's always lived someplace warm, and those 17-inch American Racing Torque Thrust wheels give it the perfect stance with their staggered 245/40/17 front and 275/40/17 rear Goodyear radials.
This is one of those early Camaros that just looks right, sits right, and drives right. No issues, no asterisks, just a clean F-body and a rumbling big block. Why wait, call us now!
