1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS
– Long term ownership since the 1980s
– Older Restoration with all GM Original Parts
– Built-up 283 Bored .060 Over with Roller Rockers
– Only 5,000 Miles Since Restoration
The present owner has owned the car since he was 14 years old having earned the money to purchase the car while working at Burger King. The restoration work began shortly after acquisition, again through money earned a little at a time while in school. Following graduation from high school, the owner joined the Army and was able to send larger payments toward the restoration which was completed in September of 1992.
During the restoration, only GM Original parts were used. From body panel replacement to door skins, hood and trunk lid, the fit and finish is very good. The Billings, MT shop completing the restoration excels in Camaros and still turns out excellent work today. The fit and finish still present well today. With the original 327 engine beyond repair, a GM 283 was rebuilt and enhanced including roller rockers, bored .060 over and more. It definitely outperforms the original 327! The interior is all original to the car, save the drivers seat upholstery. It was replaced with period correct seat covers and fits the car.
Following completion of the restoration on the 67 Camaro RS, the car was parked for 15+ years. It recently emerged from its indoor resting place, the fuel system and brakes were serviced and the car is road-worthy once more! This true 67 Camaro RS runs and drives well. The car has lots of documentation with supports the restoration and history of the car.
