This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 stands as one of the best
Camaros we've seen roll through our showroom. Tons of power out of
the 474 hp big block, a four speed, sinister black, hideaway Rally
Sport headlights, great wheels, and sooooo mean on the
streets...what else could you ask for?
It's hard to argue with the iconic lines of the first year Camaro. Of course, nothing the factory was turning out in 1967 looked anywhere near this. The full restoration took place only a few years ago, and the results are stunning. With deep reflections in the mirror-like black, straight body panels, and uniform gaps all around, it instantly announces on arrival that there was a lot invested in this mean machine. The appearance has all the great iconic touches of the first generation Camaros. That means up front there are features like the hideaway RS headlights, front spoiler, white D91 "Bumblebee" SS stripe, and a cowl induction hood. There's a Super Sport badge on each side of the car, including the rear gas cap, that's joined by the iconic D80 spoiler. But this midnight-slick Camaro isn't just about carrying all the best first-gen features. The 18-inch Foose alloys give this coupe an awesome stance, and their modern appearance hints at plenty more performance upgrades within.
As a factory air conditioning car with the custom bucket seat interior package, this Camaro already came from the factory with the right interior. So, the investment inside was all about keeping everything looking good without ruining the vintage car atmosphere. That's why the premium seats with white stripe insert have been restored to factory fresh. The same goes for the center console that has been given so much attention to detail that the factory clock still works in auxiliary gauge panel. The factory controls for the AM radio and A/C are within easy reach to keep passengers happy, but it's the features positioned just for you the driver that will make you love this clean time machine of an interior. Your left hand grips the shinny rim of the classic black and chrome steering wheel. Your right one will never want to leave the Hurst shifter. And nothing beats gazing at the deep dual pod gauges with large factory speedo and tach. But from the moment you turn the key, the rumble that this Camaro produces tells you that it's far superior to anything from the 60s.
This might be built as a 396 SS on the exterior, but under the hood is an even larger big block. This 454 V8 has been custom built with ProMaxx Performance Freedom Series aluminum heads, Holley 800 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performance RPM intake, March Performance serpentine pulleys, Sanderson headers, and much more. The result is $15K invested in the engine bay alone, and an astounding 474 recorded horsepower at the rear wheels. And while you can prove this Camaro's dominance on the street, all you have to do is let them hear the rumble of the custom dual exhaust, and your power superiority will be instantly known. But more than just a pure muscle machine, this Camaro was built to give you complete control. It starts with another $7K investment in getting the close-ration Muncie M21 four-speed fortified to handle all the power with ease. The suspension also has all the right upgrades. In front that means a RideTech StronArm tubular A-arm upgrade that also includes the full RideTech adjustable suspension package. In the rear is a RideTech HQ Level 2 coilover setup. Add in drilled & vented four-wheel disc brakes, power steering, and performance tires, and this vintage Camaro can literally run circles around much younger machines.
