1967 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
In 1966 Chevrolet conceived a totally new platform car for 1967 to
be named Camaro, from a slang French word meaning "friend."
Chevrolet was getting beat out of many sales with the bad publicity
that came from the Corvair, as well as the popularity of the
Mustang. The Camaro was deemed a "pony" car, (meaning long front
hood, and short rear deck, with power). This new car was offered in
many platforms for the largest appeal to a wide audience, from
basic to a race car and definitely escalated Chevrolet sales, and
created a classic.
For consignment, a decent Camaro from 1967. Viper Blue paint, a
black convertible top and a black interior make a striking color
combo. Throw down the convertible top and let's go for a cruise.
Our consignor has a slew of extra parts that come with this car
which include touch up paint, a factory assembly manual, a SS rear
tail panel, a carburetor kit, a new top assembly, passenger seat
upholstery, and a passenger side door panel.
The original Granada Gold has been sprayed over with what is now a
stunning Viper Blue which shows some chips and dirt. Steel panels
are good with gaps showing the need for adjustment. A steel cowl
induction hood sits between the two fenders and allows for hot air
to exit the engine bay. Moving toward the all black egg crate grill
which has integral parking lights on the outer edges just before
ending at the single headlights things are looking muscly. The
badging, brite-work and trim chrome appears in good condition.
Chevrolet Rally wheels are on all 4 corners. A black canvas
convertible top shows some wear and repairs done with black tape.
This top has a plastic rear window which is becoming cloudy and
shows a tear repaired with clear tape. The trim around the base of
the convertible top is missing and is starting to show some rust
bubbling. We note that there is rust thru in the top of the
windshield frame chrome trim which may go deeper into the
substructure. Also noted is the windshield and its frame drop down
a bit when the passenger door is opened. This possibly denotes some
hidden invasive rust in the cowling and windshield frame.
A swing of the vinyl covered door panels, reveals what appear to be
the original black vinyl bucket seats in very nice condition. These
flank a center console, with a glove box, and Hurst shifter which
sits in the center of a black textured plastic insert into the
console. The dash is original and unrestored and it looks clean.
The iconic deep round gauges front an original steering wheel, the
area for the radio is open to your imagination and a trio of
aftermarket gauges hang below. The top front of the dash is padded
for safety and the metal section of the dash at the base of the
windshield has heavy invasive rust in the center. Black carpet in
good but slightly soiled condition floods the floor.
Opening the menacing cowl induction hood we are greeted with a
slightly dirty engine bay complete with a Chevrolet orange painted
283ci V8 that has within an Isky 201 camshaft. This is topped with
an aluminum intake manifold, a rebuilt 600cfm Holley carburetor,
and a shiny chrome air cleaner assembly. Chrome Moroso valve covers
give some extra bling to the bay. A Muncie M21 4-speed manual
transmission with a 10.5" clutch is on the back and sends power to
a 3.08 geared 10-bolt rear axle.
Independent front suspension, and rear leaf springs are seen
underneath along with power front disc brakes and power rear drums.
The overall presentation of the unibody and flooring is good and
rust free with only minor surface rusting of the usual areas. 2
minor areas of concern are the passenger rear inner quarter panel
and the rocker to floor seam at front of the driver's side with
both of these areas showing the beginnings of invasive rust.
Headers are on and send spent fossils out via a dual exhaust system
with turbo mufflers.
This car started right up and ran great. It had nice power, a great
sound, and handled well on our test course. The original seats are
still comfortable and it's a blast to row the gears with the top
down. We did notice that the power top functions to put the canvas
down but does not work to put it back up. All in all, a nice
A mostly solid 1st year 1st generation Camaro with the top that
goes down. You know what is said, when the top goes down the price
goes up. This car is appropriately priced, looks great, puts a
smile on your face and gets tons of thumbs up. While it does need
some possible repair to the cowl/firewall area it's still a blast
to drive. Hurry up and visit us at the Classic Auto Mall, this drop
top piece of Detroit muscle won't last.
