This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro is the kind of classic that enjoys the
image of a V8-powered coupe. But it doesn't come off as a bruiser.
When you see the quality of the upholstery or the overdrive
transmission, you understand there's just a little bit more care
and interest here that makes it extra special.
Nice chrome bumpers and plenty of shine in the paint will always
make for an attractive classic. And this one just seems to get the
formula right. The maroon-like red looks much like the first-gen
Camaro's Garnet Red. There's a good clearcoat luster from a modern
respray, but it remains a driver-quality finish so that you won't
get nervous about joining traffic when you leave the garage. The
deeper tones of this red works quite well with the coordinated
black accenting, including the painted stripes, chin spoiler, and
well-done vinyl roof. So while this Camaro has the unmistakable
sporty look with racing stripes, full rear spoiler, and large dual
exhaust tips, there's also a nice bit of sophistication in there,
The black accents of the exterior get you ready for the full black
interior. This is the deluxe version that gives you the better door
panels and white-trimmed seats, and they present quite well with
more recent investments in the vinyl. The smooth dash, clean
carpeting, and taut headliner all add to a nice overall package.
There are even provisions for air conditioning (this was converted
to R134a, so it may just need a recharge to blow cold again.) Front
bucket seats, a center console with floor shift, and a thin/grippy
steering wheel make this a driver-oriented coupe.
Under the hood is a year-correct 327 cubic-inch V8. In fact, this
is believed to be original to the car. It has some added flair from
the bright air grabber and polished Edelbrock valve covers, but
overall, there are plenty of places where this looks honest enough
that it gives you a chance to talk about its originality. It also
has a look of good maintenance, and they way this one fires up
readily reaffirms this feeling of good care. The four-barrel
carburetor lets the V8 inhale deeper, and the dual exhaust has a
particularly nice tone. It's the kind of motor that makes you want
to drive your classic more. And the upgraded 700R4 four-speed
automatic transmission has the right gearing and overdrive for this
to be a favorite all-around driver. There's even power steering and
power brakes to make the miles easy.
This Camaro has a good sports car look and a lot of practicality
you may not have expected. It makes for a total package classic you
need to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
