RS/SS 396, MINT CONDITION, RESTORED, COLD AC, RUNS EXCELLENT, LOOKS AMAZING!
While early Camaros certainly can't be considered rare, very few modified Camaros have just the right balance of power and looks, not to mention creature comforts, which turn a good car into a great car. This 1967 Camaro SS/RS is a great car. It's got a big block, a fantastic paint scheme, and a beautifully restored stock-style interior.
First of all, it isn't Hugger Orange, which is a very pleasant surprise. Instead, it wears one of the slickest black paint jobs we've ever seen. But before that fresh two-stage urethane could go on, a whole bunch of time went into the body to make it worth of the fresh blak paint, because getting a car to look this good doesn't just happen by itself. A cowl-induction hood found its way onto the nose as well, giving this rejuvenated Camaro a bit of attitude, and with the RS/SS package that includes hidden headlights, a blacked-out grille, and all the other trim bits that enthusiasts find so desirable. Red SS stripes tie it together with the interior, and if you're a regular reader here at Streetside Classics, you know how much we love black cars with red interiors. This one does not disappoint!
A fresh code 741 red bucket seat interior greets you the instant you open the door, and the quality is apparent at first glance. Fresh seat foam and new covers make it feel like it's sitting on the showroom floor, and the detailing is deeper and sharper than most reproductions you find today. The center console houses a trick Quarter Stick shifter tied to the beefy TH400 that lives underneath. All the instruments were replaced by Auto Meter Ultra-Lite gauges that fit in a trick custom panel that slots neatly into the original dash like it was born there Speaking of options, you'll also note that this is a factory air-conditioned car, and the modern R134a system in the car was recently serviced and operates perfectly. A new AM/FM head unit slots neatly into the dash and uses original-looking knobs for a very OEM look. The trunk is finished with a new mat that fits superbly and sits on top of correct spatter-finish paint for a very OEM look.
Horsepower comes from a thumping 396 inch big block V8 under that functional cowl-induction hood. It was built in 2006 but shows only 2200 miles since it was completed, so it's still ready to rock. Using a Holley 4-barrel and an aluminum intake inhale through an open element air cleaner, this big block is just as happy idling in traffic with the A/C blowing as it is going down the strip. The engine bay is finished for appearance as much as function, wearing chrome valve covers, a billet serpentine belt setup, and a coat of bright Chevy Orange paint on the block itself. Underneath there's a TH400 3-speed automatic spinning a bulletproof 12-bolt rear end, which makes this a very highway-friendly car that still blasts through traffic without effort. Ceramic-coated long-tube headers dump into a custom exhaust system that features Flowmasters for a fantastic soundtrack. Gorgeous Ridler wheels wear staggered 215/50/17 front and 235/55/18 rear performance radials.
Fully documented with build receipts and photos, this is a nicely turned-out early Camaro that pulls no punches and takes no prisoners. Call today!
