HIGHLIGHTS: Unrestored classic Camaro for the budget-concious
buyer! Believed to be two owners since new, with one repaint and
the original interior. A real survivor! 327 V8, 4-speed manual
convertible with a power top! According to the trim tag, this is a
factory 327, 4-speed, power top, bucket seat, center-console
BODY OVERVIEW: The body is clean and straight, with all of the
proper emblems and trim still in place and in good original
condition. This is a car that has never seen a full restoration,
and has held up remarkably well over the years!
This is a car that has been the dream of car enthusiasts everywhere
for decades! It is very rare to find a first-generation Camaro that
hasn't been restored yet, and this car is one of those rare
examples. The current wheels are the only known modification, and
they are Oldsmobile wheels. The original steel wheels and wheel
covers are included with the sale. Considering it is a vehicle that
has simply been maintained over the years, the body is in truly
PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: Originally finished in the then-popular
fawn paint color, it was purportedly repainted by the original
owner within the first few years after purchase because she simply
didn't like the original Sierra Fawn color and much preferred
yellow. This information was given by the original owner when the
current owner purchased the car well over 25 years ago.
Given the age of the paint job, it could be considered to be in
good condition. While it isn't peeling and has some gloss left,
there are some wear marks here and there that can be expected on a
40ish year old paint job. A good buffing may go a long way on this
car, if you prefer to keep the "survivor" look.
INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The black vinyl interior is said to be
original, and if so it has been very well maintained. While like
the rest of the car, it is indeed showing some age, there are no
pronounced damage areas on the seats and wear is extremely minimal
when taking the age of the vehicle and the lack of restoration into
account. For the discerning buyer looking to enjoy a turn-key
driver classic as-is, this interior is perfect.
MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Under the hood sits a 327 Chevrolet V8, which
is of course hooked up to a 4-speed manual transmission. This car
is a dream to drive, and really captures the spirit of the original
Just like the rest of the car, the engine and transmission have not
been recently rebuilt and should be considered to be in maintained
original condition. This Camaro fires up without issue, and shifts
just as smooth as can be.
WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: The overall originality, and the
low number of owners. This is a car that hasn't been fooled around
with too much! Plus, it is dialed in tight and drives great. Truly,
it is a pleasure to drive!
WHAT YOU MIGHT NOT LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: If minor paint defects and
other small signs of age and wear bother you, this is not the
Camaro you are looking for.
DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? Don't let the lack of restoration fool you;
every single item on our checklist is functional on this car except
the oil pressure gauge. Not too shabby for a 52-year-old car!
WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? The buyer for this Camaro is
someone looking for a good, honest classic car that hasn't been
taken apart and put back together half a dozen times over the
years. Whether you're shopping for a turn-key weekend cruiser, or
the perfect restoration candidate, this Camaro would be a great
