For Sale: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro in Lithia Springs, Georgia

Vehicle Description

The 1st generation Camaro has always delivered big performance in a slick package, and this gorgeous, ready-to-show-off 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 continues that storied tradition. With a full-blown, body-off restoration completed in 2017 and only 226 break-in miles logged ever since, this stunning black-on-black coupe packs a rompin' stompin' 396 V8 big-block motor, a quick-shifting Muncie 4-speed, and a couple of choice options and upgrades that make it road-ready TODAY. If showing up in an awesome piece of vintage Chevy muscle is your idea of fun, this dialed-in '67 should be your next car.

This sucker could probably compete for trophies at top levels, but to be honest, it's probably too good for that. The sinister black paint is surely worlds better than anything the factory could have managed, and as always, it looks fantastic on the F-body shape. They worked hard to get it into shape, nailing the gaps and prepping the steel to make it look right once everything was said and done, and the depth of the reflections in the body's surface is proof enough. The slick-black paint is miles-deep, and because it's a modern PPG single-stage finish topped with concept-clearcoat, it's bound to look great and last for a very, very long time. It's not perfect, as the finish has acquired some light scratches and swirls from multiple car washes (I couldn't help but rub on it every weekend either), but the vast majority could easily be remedied with a professional buff-and-wax, and there are no dents, dings, or any other kind of damages. A correct, RS-spec white nose stripe was painted on with precision, and it really pops against the dark backdrop while outlining the uber-popular RS-spec hidden headlight front end. A chin spoiler up front and ducktail spoiler out back add to the car's aggressive curb appeal, and the correct RS equipment continues with the separate back-up lights underneath those bright red taillights. Thankfully, the builder skipped the urge to add an obnoxious cowl hood, leaving instead the original-style unit complete with velocity stacks built right in, and they work in concert with bright chrome bumpers, shiny rocker panel trim, and gorgeous sparkling brightwork around the front clip, wheel arches, and all the glass to provide a nice contrast against the dark paint. SS-badges inside the blacked-out front grille, front fenders, and on the gas cap let everyone know what time it is, just in case they want to tussle with this old-school street brawler.

Black really is the only color that you'd choose on a Camaro like this, and the buckets wear reproduction seat covers that fit well and remain quite comfortable. The interior, like the bodywork, is pretty stock with a few thoughtful changes that enhance the driving experience. The black carpets are correct, the door panels are in excellent shape, and there's a center console with a big, cue-ball topped Hurst shifter in the middle. The gauges ahead of the driver are standard issue along with a trio of auxiliary units in the center console that keep an accurate eye on the big block under the hood. A stock AM radio is still in the original spot, although it will need to be upgraded if you're expecting tunes, and there's a heater but no A/C - simply because the owner didn't want to pull any extra power away from the big block. Up top, the headliner is taut and clean as can be, same as the largely untouched rear seats, and the trunk was neatly finished with spatter paint atop the uber-clean trunk pans.

The burly 396 cubic inch V8 under the hood brings big firepower and with mountainous torque production, it'll pretty much shred the tires at will. It's not numbers-matching, but we pulled the suffix code and it is definitely a period-correct MW block with a factory rating of 325 horsepower, exactly what this car was born with. Dressed to look stock, the big block was covered in Chevy Orange engine enamel and wears polished chrome valve covers and a matching air cleaner with proper '396' decals, and it really pops out from the gloss black inner fenders. There's a Holley 750CFM double-pumper mounted atop an Edelbrock Performer intake that feeds the thirsty engine, an MSD ignition that springs it to life, and a lopey Howards hydraulic roller cam inside that sounds absolutely amazing. The engine starts with a wonderful big block bark from the Flowmaster dual exhaust system and pulls like a freight train, as you'd expect. A Muncie M21 4-speed gearbox crisply handles the shifts, spinning a heavy-duty 12-bolt posi-traction rear end filled with 3.31 gears that are perfect for both off-the-line jumps and long-distance cruising. The chassis is super clean and includes sway bars fore and aft, Hotchkis springs, and traction bars out back because, obviously, you're going to need them. Power steering and power front disc brakes ensure a great ride every time out, and the ride height is close-to-stock, so it looks perfect sitting on 15-inch Rally wheels with staggered 225/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A white-letter tires.

With long-term ownership (this car was purchased by the current owner in 1992, and the restored from 2014-2017), a high-end restoration, and plenty of power and performance, this is one excellent '67 Camaro RS/SS. They really don't get much better than this. Call today!
