Features and Specifications
1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS ConvertiblePlease read the entire description and view all the pics carefully!.... Contact me for 200+ pictures showing the car top to bottom inside and out. I made this listing as in depth and detailed as possible describing all known issues no matter how small as I don't want to leave anything to chance. I'm not a Camaro expert please ask questions before bidding.
I recently bought this from the estate of neighbors I used to live near. Unfortunately recent personal circumstances force its sale. I've known about and have been around this car since the early 1980's. It was purchased from the original owner in October 1979 and it has remained in their family for the last 38 years. I have a folder of some pre restoration pics, hand drawn sketches of engine/trans numbers and other receipts and notes dating back to when it was bought. It did not contain the window sticker, original invoice or the Protect-o-Plate.

Engine was professionally rebuilt on 08/12/97 (Have receipt scanned with pics of car) and I assisted the owner with re-installation around that time after it was picked up from the machine shop. How many miles have been put on it since that time I do not know but the car was used on occasion since then up until I got it.
Starts right up, runs strong...no knocks,smoking or leaks.

I am 99.9% certain transmission is original.
Not all '67 Camaro TH400's got a partial VIN stamp and this one didn't. The info stamped on the trans data plate indicates it's the car's born with trans but unfortunately the second digit of the year is obscured by scrape marks. (see pic) I have a hand drawing of the tag found with the paperwork for the car showing all these numbers including the 67 date. It was made by the owner when the engine/trans were out....not concrete evidence like a picture though unfortunately.
427 Julian date translates to the 61st day of the year which is March 2nd which is within an acceptable date range for the 1st week of April car build date.
CC = Chevrolet L35 engine
6?= The second digit for the year 67 is obscured.
10109= production sequence number.
Transmission shifts fine with no slipping or leaks observed. Trans was out for rebuild 07/12/97 and has a B&M Holeshot 2400 stall speed converter. PN 20412
12 bolt posi.
Code: QW= 3.07 posi
04 03 = assembled on April 3rd
G1= Detroit Gear & Axle Plant 1st shift
I cannot see the posi manufacturer code stamped on the second line but the rear end is a posi.
3894860= center section casting number for 12 bolt.
A307= center section casting date (January 30, 1967)
BODY & INTERIOR:
One lacquer respray in 1985. Looks decent from ten feet away but upon closer inspection there is lifting, checking,cracking and spider webbing of the paint. It will require a complete strip and repaint to look great again.
I've been all over the body with a weak refrigerator magnet and it stuck solid everyplace on the car with the exception of the lower front fenders. Could be some filler in that area although the pics I have scanned from 1979 don't show those areas to be bad. I also looked behind the fender through the door jamb and couldn't see any funny business down in that area. It was all metal.
Car has had both 1/4's replaced. Looking inside the trunk up under one can see where they were seamed at the belt line. Whoever did the work did a good job and did it right. No excessive filler or ghost shadowing of welds can be seen. The work held up great after 30+ years. Trunk lid gaps are good also.
There is no rust! No bubbling rust under the paint,no rust coming through....no rust anywhere.
Trunk floor was also replaced early 80's with a good used original. (found a receipt)
Convertible top is older but in good condition. No rips or tears just slight seam stitch separation on the right side by back window. (see pic) The power top goes up and down as it should.
The electrically operated headlight system opened ok but they wouldn't close. Through trial and error I was able to get them closed. They will need repair or upgraded to the superior Retro-Electro system.
Tires are like new but very old and the rubber is hard.
All 4 wheels are correct code FC. Can't find the date codes. Paint would need to be stripped off to find them.
Front seats were recovered and a new carpet with underlayment installed in the late 90's. Rest of the interior is original and in great shape.
Console mounted gauges all work with the exception of the clock. The in dash tach is not working.
I do not know if the factory AM radio works because there is no antenna.
The speedo was working correctly but now that the colder weather is here I noticed the last few times I drove the car the needle sticks on occasion. Repair or lubrication is required.
Needs a back up light/neutral safety switch.
Runs and drives good goes down the road straight and smooth. Brakes work great no pulling. Nice stock sounding exhaust note with a slight lope at idle.
Choke on the quadrajet works ok. Easy cold start with a couple pumps of the accelerator pedal. High idles and kicks off when warm.
Blower motor works and gives good heat.
Distributor,alternator,starter, water pump,carburetor are not numbers matching although carb is an early quadrajet and could be the same one shown in the pre restoration pics. It has been sent out and was recolored/rebuilt at some point. The round metal tag with the carb's part number is missing.
Has correct fan spacer for a big block (3857042) but incorrect fan.
Has correct 0749 brake booster with 061 Julian date code.
With a repaint and some TLC this can be a very nice car. At present, the paint isn't a total embarrassment and the car can still be enjoyed as is. Due to their age the car will need new tires to be safely driven at speed.
