FRAME-OFF RESTORATION, 350 V8, AUTO, DUALS, PB, TORQUE THRUST, SWEET DROPTOP!!
At first glance, you might take this frame-off restored 1967 Chevrolet Camaro convertible for a worked-over custom piece, but the truth is, it's a mostly correct car with a few subtle upgrades, a great-running 350, and a gorgeous color combination.
The old adage about black cars is completely true: nothing looks better, but it had better be right. Fortunately, this is not only a low-mile, straight, clean car, but the guys who did the finish work knew what they were doing. As a result, that black paint is deep and is so rich and dark that it makes most other black cars look dusty. The early Camaro curves seem to be especially noticeable on this car, and the dramatic curve along the tops of the fenders is shown to great effect. A bright red nose stripe is a great way to tie it together, and while it doesn't quite leap out at you like a white stripe would, a lot of folks will prefer the contrast of this car's look. You'll also note there's a chin spoiler up front and with a ducktail spoiler on the trunk lid, it has a zoomy Camaro look. The trim and bright pieces are in great shape, too, and it's always nice to see a Camaro being honest about what it is, so the original grille and taillights remain intact.
Bright red Strato buckets featuring fresh seat covers with correct pleats and black stripes anchor the interior. Of course, new seats were just the beginning, because there are also beautiful door panels, correct black carpets that haven't been degraded by UV rays, and a nicely preserved dash pad, all lending to the car's restored look. The factory gauges are in remarkably good shape and there's a set of auxiliary dial sunder the dash, right about where the factory might have put them. For entertainment, you get an AM/FM head unit in the dash using original-style knobs so it looks right and works vastly better than the original AM unit. With a thick wooden rim, the steering wheel feels great in your hands and works well with the slightly modified shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. The black convertible top looks brand new and offers a crystal clear rear window, as well as a matching red boot when it's down. The trunk is solid and clean and has a reproduction plaid mat.
No worries under the hood, either, where you'll find a strong-running 350 cubic inch V8, now dressed for show. The original 2-barrel carburetor and intake have been replaced by a 4-barrel setup giving this small block V8 some impressive muscle. The engine bay is nicely detailed, and with just enough shiny stuff to make it sparkle, including the Chevrolet-logo valve covers, matching air cleaner, and even a chrome water pump pulley. It's backed by the aforementioned TH350 and a 10-bolt rear, which hangs on a pair of composite monoleaf springs that ride and handle quite well. A new dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers sounds awesome and the brakes were recently serviced front-to-back. Combined with those brand new chrome Torque Thrust wheels and fat BFG rubber, the car has an awesome stance that works perfectly on this slick ragtop.
Clean Camaro convertibles aren't getting cheaper, and with a ton of restoration receipts and photos, this is a car you can buy with confidence. Call today!
