BEAUTIFUL DROPTOP 1ST GEN RS/SS, #'S MATCH 350 L48, AUTO, PWR STEER/BRAKES, A/C
The contrast between high performance and a subtle color is always appealing, and this cool 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS convertible looks exactly right wearing Deepwater Blue paint and a contrasting white nose stripe. Recently refinished with gorgeous paint, a matching-numbers L48 under the hood, and a long list of options including A/C, it's an awesome machine that delivers the performance its looks seem to promise.
Although the '69 Camaro is quite likely the most popular Chevy of all time, there are a large number of folks who think the simple lines of the earlier cars were exactly right. Compact, but muscular, the first Camaro was a simple design that allowed small details to have a big impact. Gorgeous code E Deepwater Blue is this car's original color, and it looks like a million bucks from any angle. Super straight sheetmetal certainly helps, and the finish quality on this car is quite good, although this is not necessarily a trailer queen. They kept the original hood with its factory inserts, and the chin spoiler, which together make this an aggressive-looking ragtop that doesn't lose its F-body identity in the process. The white stripe follows the factory pattern, and the blacked-out SS grille with Rally Sport hidden headlights finishes out the aggressive package without being overbearing. Excellent chrome bumpers and bright stainless on things like the windshield surround add a bit of jewelry. We also like the fact that there's no spoiler out back, which always looks kind of busy on a ragtop.
Inside, gorgeous Parchment buckets wear fresh seat covers that replicate the original pattern with a matching seat cover on the rear bench. Many of the soft parts were replaced during the restoration, including those seat covers, the carpets, the door panels, and even the dash pad appears to be a newer piece. A skinny deep-dish steering wheel is pure 1960s style, with clean original gauges, including a factory tach, clearly visible through the spokes. A trio of auxiliary gauges on the center console, just ahead of the shifter, helps keep an eye on the great-running small block living under the hood. Options include A/C, which now uses modern hardware, power windows, a console, and an AM/FM radio, so you know the guy who originally spec'd this car wanted some luxury with his performance. Overhead there's a new white convertible top and the trunk is fitted with a correct reproduction mat that fits remarkably well.
Power comes from the original, matching-numbers L48 350 paired with a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission (replacing the original PowerGlide), and the engine bay is dressed for show. Aside from the modern A/C compressor, it's quite correct, from the chrome-topped air cleaner to the Chevy Orange paint on the block, although the chrome valve covers were added for a little flash. It starts easily, idles nicely, and pulls with vigor at any speed, but it's docile enough to drive every day. Long-tube headers help build power and there's a brand new exhaust system with stainless mufflers that sound great. A heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end, monoleaf springs, and a new gas tank round out the list of virtues that come with this Camaro. Handsome 15-inch Rally wheels carry recent redline radials for the perfect period look and modern handling.
There's a lot more than the asking price wrapped up in this slick F-body ragtop, and the classic color combination will never go out of style. Call today!
