There are so many early Camaros running around that it would be easy to think that most were high-end SS models. Well, that's not true and this honest 1967 Camaro is much closer to reality. With a matching-numbers 327, factory 4-speed, and honest good looks, it's the kind of middle-of-the-road Camaro most guys ended up with and which is hardly ever seen today. That alone makes it special.
OK, so the color was changed from the original code D Nantucket Blue to the glistening Tuxedo Black that it wears today, but you sure can't argue with the results. Despite the car's humble beginnings, the fact that it spend its life in California and still wears all its original sheetmetal means that it was an ideal candidate for basic black. When they pulled the carpets and found virgin steel underneath, they knew they'd found a special car, so they pulled all the trim, realigned all the panels to make everything as right as it could be, then gave it a full coat of two-stage urethane that's about a mile deep. The work was done back in 2000, but it's so impressive today that it seems months old, not years. And aside from the color change, not much was altered; that's a stock flat hood, a correct base Camaro grille, and even the badges are factory-issue. Still, while they had the trim off they polished it up and reinstalled the bright chrome bumpers that still sparkle against the black paint.
The black interior is completely original save for the carpets, which were replaced when the car was repainted. Sporting upgraded Custom buckets, it's remarkably well preserved with only light signs of use on the driver's seat, but no major splits or tears that would demand replacement. A center console is a desirable option and the headliner is in amazing condition. The factory gauges, which are in great condition, are joined by a set of Stewart-Warner oil pressure and temperature gauges under the dash, and they look like they belong there. It also includes the factory AM radio, stock 4-speed manual shifter, and deep-dish steering wheel, all of which are in excellent shape. The trunk is also original sheetmetal, and they do have a reproduction mat for it, but decided not to install it simply to avoid condensation and rust underneath.
The original, numbers-matching 327 cubic inch V8 remains in place between the shock towers, and remarkably, it still carries a 2-barrel carburetor up top. It starts easily and runs smoothly thanks to a Pertronix electronic ignition system, but otherwise it's quite stock. And honestly, with 210 horsepower on tap and a 4-speed, it's plenty entertaining to drive and doesn't get cranky in traffic. In fact, a new 3-core radiator was recently installed, along with reproduction hoses and clamps, to really make it look right and keep its cool under any conditions. The 4-speed was rebuilt just last year and the stock 10-bolt rear end hangs on replacement springs that preserve the factory ride. Heck, it's still got single exhaust! The only other changes are a set of KYB shocks and those flashy Cragar mags, which are period correct and carry a set of recently-installed white-letter radials.
An outstanding survivor, this Camaro proves that there's joy in being different, even if different today means something a lot different than in 1967. If you cherish originality, this car is a great choice. Call today!
