EXTREMELY WELL DONE, POWER TOP, VGOOD BOLERO RED PAINT& BLK INTERIOR, CLEAN!!!!
Do you have any idea how rare this 1967 Camaro convertible really is? I mean statistically, a six-cylinder Camaro with a 3-speed manual transmission was probably not in the minority in 1967, but today, it's simply remarkable that it retains its original drivetrain instead of being converted to some SS clone with a crate motor. If you prize authenticity, this Camaro will definitely make you smile.
The six-cylinder Camaro was very popular back when it was new, although you'd hardly know it today. However, if you like the appeal of a thrifty six and an honest car that hasn't been cobbled up by some kid in his driveway, then there's a very strong appeal. Like the Mustang guys who love their sixes, this pretty Bolero Red ragtop has an undeniable appeal. Take it to a show and pop the hood and you'll see everyone will totally ignore the chrome-laden crate-motor-powered cars and be drawn to this car instead. And the good news is that it was restored as a very high end car, with great paint, decent gaps, and a high-quality look that suggests that it has been loved all its life. No stripes, no spoilers, no cowl-induction hoods, and yet it still manages to make you smile every time you see it. That's what an honest car can do. There's also nice chrome, shiny stainless, and absolutely nothing here that wasn't installed when it rolled out of the showroom in 1967.
Bucket seats, a manual transmission, and a top that goes down makes for a lot of fun regardless of what else is going on. The standard black vinyl upholstery was restored a few years ago and looks great, with an inviting look that works as well here as it does in the V8 cars. Not a lot of options, just a power top and an AM radio, but again, someone bought this car new and probably skimped a little just to be able to put the top down, and we can definitely respect that. White-faced auxiliary gauges were added under the dash, but that's hardly a demerit, but otherwise it's stock, right down to the base steering wheel and 3-speed manual gearbox. There is a power black convertible top that looks fantastic and fits quite well, and the trunk is simply more evidence that this car has led a pretty good life.
Despite the hype over V8s, the 250 cubic inch inline-six is an admirable performer in the relatively lightweight Camaro. It's certainly silky smooth and if you're deft with the shifter, it'll scoot through traffic without any effort at all. It's also thrifty, and if you're an enthusiast on a budget, that's something you should appreciate. As I said, it's nicely detailed and will draw a crowd, most of whom may have never even seen a six-cylinder Camaro before. It's not detailed for show, but it's ready to drive and enjoy without a second thought. The undercarriage is quite tidy, with a single exhaust system, manual brakes and steering, and a set of gears out back that keep the six in the sweet spot on the highway. Classic Rally wheels look right, even on a six, and carry 195/70/14 blackwalls to complete the look.
If you haven't noticed, we really like this car. Sometimes standing out doesn't take cubic dollars and giant engines, it just takes being yourself. Call today!
