PRICED TO MOVE!! $5,700 BELOW expert 3rd party valuation. This is a true numbers matching 1967 RS Camaro. It has all the right equipment, the right color, and the right price. This is THE ONE. This is a car that is welcome and admired at any local cruise night or car show, and that you can drive with confidence anywhere you want to go. I’ve owned the car since 2001. I’m technically the 3rd owner, but the 2nd owner was a neighbor and friend who only had the car a month. Originally Bolero Red, the car went through a full professional restoration in 2006 and was converted to a truly stunning Hugger Orange modern paint job, with just a touch of pearl. The car receives compliments on the paint everywhere it goes. No trunk or floor pans were needed, as the originals had no rust. The car is as straight as can be. The beauty of this car runs deeper than the paint however. The motor and transmission are original to the car. Motor is the quick revving 327ci backed by a Powerglide (auto transmission). This is a rare and desirable combo these days, as most Powerglides have been yanked out for drag racing applications. The odometer reads 62k. It was 48k in 2001. Considering the shape of the car when I purchased it, a VERY clean survivor with near mint interior, I believe those miles to be accurate.
The motor went through a professional fully documented rebuild in 2003, down to a full acid bath for the block and heads and replacement of all internals. Edelbrock Performer series components were used almost exclusively. This provides a nice boost in power, but also created one of the most reliable muscle cars you’ll ever find. That power gets to the ground via chrome corvette rallys, staggered with 15x8's at the rear running 245's (225's up front). Power gets to your ears via ceramic coated long tube Hooker Headers and a 3” Flowmaster system exiting just behind the wide Corvette rally rear wheels. The sound is truly glorious. To keep everything cool, this car has been fitted with a top of the line Griffin aluminum radiator and electric fans (added in 2017), connected through braided hoses and anodized fittings. Other upgrades include a complete billet under-driven aluminum pulley system from March, K&N filters (including X-Stream top filter for additional airflow), multi-leaf rear springs, and a stall converter. The brakes are also brand new OEM style, replaced over the past winter. The motor is professionally maintained by Eastern Rod and Customs of Raleigh, NC, with a full overhaul and tune in 2018 (disassembled motor pic is from this overhaul).
Upgrades to the interior include custom in-dash gauges and an A-pillar mounted tach, a discreet under dash cd player/radio and Memphis speakers. The carpet was replaced over the past winter. Everything else is original and in excellent condition. The only exception being the front driver’s seat, which is starting to fray at the seams (visible in the pictures). Reproduction front seat covers from Rick’s Camaro’s will go with the car, or I can work with a buyer on install prior to pick up.
The car has always been garaged and well taken care of.
For the money, you simply won’t find another 67 RS as clean as this, with original motor and transmission. Don’t miss your chance at this piece of automotive history.
I’m glad to create additional videos or pics for serious buyers. I also had an independent valuation performed this year to assess which included a thorough inspection. I am willing to share this with any serious interested parties. With this car you really can know exactly what you are getting into, there are no secrets.

Resto-mods have become hot commodities in the collector car market, offering the style and splendor of vintage vehicles with the drivability and reliability of the modern stuff. And while mid-century American cars are fading in value as their constituency ages, there are those 1950s cars that still excite any generation, such as the ‘55 Chevy. […]
There was much trepidation going into year’s Arizona Auction Week 2020 following the bummer results from the Monterey collector car sales in August, when gross figures were down by nearly a third, and after a disappointing 2019 in general. But the numbers are in (mostly) and the overall results for Arizona’s collector car extravaganza and […]
“Reclaimed Rust” is the title of an exhibition of custom cars, guitars and memorabilia from the James Hetfield Collection that opens February 1 at the Petersen Automotive Museum in Los Angeles. Hetfield is co-founder, lead vocalist and songwriter for the heavy-metal band Metallica. He also is a lifelong car enthusiast. “Hetfield’s vehicles assert both a […]
When is a motorcycle not a motorcycle but instead a car? Vintage motorcycle enthusiasts likely would say that the Ner-A-Car came closest. Carl Nearcher’s 2-wheelers were built on a low-slung steel chassis and had center-hub steering and some other car-like details. They were built in England and the U.S. in the 1920s, and there were […]
There are resto-mods and electra-mods and now we appear to need a name for what TDF is doing, taking Formula One racing chassis and installing its own powertrain with the promise of providing customers with “a package that is more reliable, useable and affordable to maintain.” That package is is TDF-1, which uses a 2011 […]
The Caballero was, of course, a Chevy El Camino by another name. GM’s love for rebadging extended to its rear-wheel-drive, car-based pickup truck that was sold from model years 1978 through 1987. While trim levels and names differed, the El Camino and Caballero were largely the same aside from badging and grille design, which could […]
Bonhams is back in Las Vegas for its 10th annual collector motorcycle auction. But this year, the sale takes place in a bright new venue, the Caesar’s Entertainment Studios just off The Strip and behind the Paris Las Vegas complex and its faux Eiffel Tower. The new venue has a vintage feel that fits well […]
The recently completed Arizona Auction Week 2020 saw some weaknesses and also some surprising strengths in the collector car market. Prior to auction week, I fully expected American classics, and especially those from the pre-war era, to take a serious dive. No one was more surprised than I was when I saw the Tucker at […]
“There may be other ‘32 Fords out there, but not all cars are created equal,” says the seller of the Pick of the Day, a 1932 Ford custom roadster. Indeed, this street rod seems like a superb rendition of a classic highboy Deuce, known as the Texas Playboy and good enough to earn a full […]

Each of the four will be honored during the 25th annual edition of the Florida concours with judged […]
