1967 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
In 1966 Mustangs were flying out of Ford showrooms, and Chevrolet
needed an answer. After many secret meetings, and covert internal
press events, engineers unveiled the official name for what had
been known up to this point as XP-836. Camaro was the chosen
namesake, and immediately the question became "but what does it
mean?". This question has no official linguistic answer, but as
Chevrolet marketing people would answer "It's an animal that eats
For consignment, the beneficiary of a slew of new body panels, a
sandblasted undercarriage, new convertible top, and rebuilt 350ci
engine with a rebuilt TH350 automatic transmission, you are good to
hop this 1967 Camaro SS350 tribute convertible and turn the key,
and get better performance than you would have with this car in
1967 off the showroom floor.
With a very well done white respray covering the straight steel
panels which are minding their gaps very nicely, our consignor
states all new body panels were used in this redux but we do note
some rust bubbling in the bottoms of the doors. While we are at it,
add on a new canvas convertible top in black, and let some sun in
baby! Simple SS and Camaro badging dot this exterior and are nicely
chromed. A chromed rocker strip, nicely restored bumpers, shiny
steel wheels with dish trim rings and correct Camaro hub caps
wrapped with Coker red stripe GR-70 radials which are nearly new,
and ladies and gentlemen, start your engines. Oh, and let's get a
little gnarly with a super cool spoiler on the trunk lid, and do
not leave out the iconic front wrap around stripe in black. No
hidden headlights here, just pure simple Camaro...Wheels UP!
Red riding hood, Red riding hood, except it's the seats, carpet,
dash and door panels all in their red vinyl glory. Front buckets
and a rear bench looking good as new, door panels straight and
true, with nearly no wear seen throughout, and new red carpet in
very nice condition floods the floor. A nice center console sweeps
by the buckets and houses the mid-century modern styled gearshift.
The dash has nary a scratch or flaw in it with deeply inset gauges
which are all original. This red is HOT!
A new and rebuilt 350ci V8 replaces the original engine, but this
one is painted correctly in orange/red and has some added bling in
the form of black valve coverings and a black Holley air cleaner
assembly. This redone mill is topped with aluminum cylinder heads
and roller rockers which are actuated by a .480 lift camshaft.
Feeding this work of engine art the proper dosage of air and
fossils is a Holley intake manifold and a Holley 650cfm double
pumper 4bbl carburetor. This mill sits within a very clean and
restored engine bay which was recently repainted black and has new
hoses and a new heater core. A rebuilt TH350 3-speed automatic
transmission, with a shift kit and 2000rpm stall converter, which
shifts succinctly and smoothly, attached to its backside. Rounding
out the tour is a stock 10-bolt rear axle with unknown gearing. A
new Cold Case aluminum radiator has been added to keep temperatures
It has been sandblasted and shows as such, just pure newly painted
black and straight un-rusted steel with just a hint of road dirt
and surface rust on some of the suspension components. A front
brake conversion is noted changing out to discs and drum brakes are
retained in the rear. A fully rebuilt suspension, consisting of an
independent coil spring front arrangement and leaf spring rear are
on. Imagine that?
A good driver, quick starter, smooth shifter, and some good grabby
brakes. The car rode smoothly, and the interior was spacious. All
functions save for the horn were working and it's always great to
be able to put a top down on a nice day and go for a spin so I can
write about these fascinating cars!
A super clean, super cool restoration, certainly not purporting to
be perfect, but a real driver. Nicely done all around, you can be
secure in the thought that all the work has been done on this first
year's offering classic, and you just get to enjoy it.
