14,206 Miles! 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Survivor

The second owner who purchased this beautiful 1967 SS/RS Camaro in 1979 is now selling it here on eBay. All documentation is present including the original order form and window sticker. This stunning low-mileage car has an also stunning buy it now price of $62,500–what do you think about that? The car is located in Yonkers, New York, which makes it’s body condition and original paint even more stunning!

Let’s look closer at this Emerald Turquoise time capsule. The seller has included some old car show pictures in the ad, and states that it hasn’t been registered since 1993 but has been in their garage the whole time. It must have been started and run from time to time, though, as it “runs beautiful.”

Even though I’m mostly a Ford guy when it comes to domestic cars, this interior really appeals to me, even though I can’t imagine looking down that far for the auxiliary gauges! The four-speed, positraction rear end and powerful V8 don’t hurt either, and if you look at the pictures in the auction the interior will sell you on the 14,206 claimed mileage.

I wonder if the mark on the seat is reflected sunshine, a stain or a hand in recently applied vinyl dressing? Either way, the original upholstery looks pretty darned good (along with the rest of the car). The car even has it’s original floor mats!

Naturally the under hood area looks nice as well. That’s a 350 cubic inch “Turbofire” V8 powering the Camaro, and the car is also equipped with power steering and a “special” steering rack mechanism (thanks for correction in comments) — is that a quicker ratio version? I don’t know about you, but I’m starting to think this car might just be worth that high price, or at least something close to it. Remember, it’s only original once!

    $62,500.? Is that all?? I was expecting a reserve of at least $70K! Had this been a 396, you could easily add $20K to the reserve and probably get it.

    Super low miles, documentation, 4 speed and fold down rear seat. Nice color also.

    What would possess someone to keep a beautiful car like this in the garage for 35 years and not drive it? I’ll never understand it.

    Beautiful car. Really surprised it is in such amazing condition considering it is in Yonkers. Spent a lot of my youth there. My uncle was king of the street back in the late 60’s. He would pull engines in the street using a steel swing set and a chain.

    Wow. That’s the exact car i wanted when i was 17 in 1973. Most camaros already had a lot of rust where i lived in Massachusetts. I would love to take it for a drive and see how my dream car compares to the 2018 Sonata 2.0T we just bought

    Probably a fair price if as it appears. So many have bad stuff hiding under good paint, that it makes more sense to just buy “well preserved” rather than so called “restored”.

    Ad mentions “Special Quick Steering”, article says “a ‘special’ steering rack”?

    Wasn’t aware that the 1967 Camaro was available with rack and pinion steering. I doubt that very many people checked that box on the order sheet.

      The article’s wrong, rack and pinion was not available in early Camaros. They all came with a regular steering, box, tie rods and tie rod ends, pitman arm, etc.

      The optional “Quick Ratio Steering”, RPO N44, was available on any 67-69 Camaro. Z/28’s came standard with the quick ratio box, and an even faster Z/28 only ratio was included, when a Z/28 was ordered with N44.

      About 6100 67’s were ordered with the quick ratio steering.

      That’s one very nice first generation Camaro!

    The invoice and window sticker both say 350 but I don’t think it was even available yet could be wrong at my old age. Back you could get almost anything you wanted,not like now you have to take what’s in their grouping.The window sure looks original but i suppose it could have been artificially aged.Who knows.

    Notice there is no brake booster, so I’m thinking that it does not have disc brakes. Were they not a standard part of the SS package? They were on my ’69 Nova.

    Gorgeous Camaro. Always loved that color and it is really rare. Never cared for the console and those miniscule gauges though. I understand how others would like it, I just think it looks so much better with just a boot and that Hurst stick coming out of the floor. Not sure if the driver can even see the gauges. I wish they had offered the vent windows in all of the first generation F bodies. Feels great when you’re cruising and you don’t have air conditioning.
    I’m guessing they get the reserve, maybe more.

    This is copied from Wikipedia .

    1967 Camaro convertible, base six-cylinder model
    The 1967 Camaro shared the subframe / semi-unibody design with the 1968 Chevy II Nova. Almost 80 factory and 40 dealer options, including three main packages, were available: the RS, the SS and the Z/28.

    The SS included a 350 cu in (5.7 L) V8 engine and the L35 and L78 396 cu in (6.5 L) big-block V8s were also available. The SS featured non-functional air inlets on the hood, special striping, and SS badging on the grille, front fenders, gas cap, and horn button. It was possible to order both the SS and RS options, making it a RS/SS. In 1967, a Camaro RS/SS convertible with a 396 engine paced the Indianapolis 500.

    The Z/28 option code was introduced in December 1966 for the 1967 model year. It was the brainchild of Vince Piggins, who conceived offering “virtually race-ready” Camaros for sale [8] from any Chevrolet dealer.[9] This option package was not mentioned in any sales literature, so it was unknown to most buyers.[10] The Z/28 option required power front disc brakes and a close-ratio Muncie 4-speed manual transmission (posi-traction was optional). It featured a 302 cu in (4.9 L) small-block V-8 engine, 3″ stroke crankshaft with 4″ bore, an aluminum intake manifold, and a 4-barrel vacuum secondary Holley carburetor of 780 cfm. The engine was designed specifically to race in the Trans Am series (which required engines smaller than 305 cu in (5.0 L). Advertised power of this engine was listed at 290 hp (216 kW). This is an under-rated figure.[10] Chevrolet wanted to keep the horsepower rating at less than 1 hp per cubic inch, for various reasons (e.g. insurance and racing classes). The factory rating of 290 hp occurred at 5300 rpm, while actual peak for the high-revving 302 was closer to 360 hp (268 kW) (with the single four barrel carb) and 400 hp (298 kW) (with optional dual-four barrel carbs) at 6800-7000 rpm. The Z/28 also came with upgraded suspension, racing stripes on the hood and trunk lid, ‘302’ front fender emblems on the 67 and early 68 cars, and ‘Z/28’ emblems in late 68 & 69. It was also possible to combine the Z/28 package with the RS package.

    Only 602 Z/28s were sold in 1967, along with approximately 100 Indianapolis Pace Car replicas.[11] The 1967 and 1968 Z/28s did not have the cowl induction hood, optional on the 1969 Z/28s. The 1967 Z28 received air from an open element air cleaner or from an optional cowl plenum duct attached to the side of the air cleaner that ran to the firewall and got air from the cowl vents. 15-inch rally wheels were included with Z/28s while all other 1967-9 Camaros had 14-inch wheels.

    The origin of the Z/28 nameplate came from the RPO codes – RPO Z28 was the code for the Special Performance Package. RPO Z27 was for the Super Sport package.

    Cars assembled in Switzerland, at GM’s local facility in Biel, were all coupes with the 198 PS (146 kW; 195 hp) 4,638 cc (283 cu in) small-block V8 – an engine which was not available in contemporary Camaros built in the United States. The Swiss-built Camaros were not available with the three-speed manual and had a differential lock and front disc brakes as standard. Some additional safety equipment was also standard.

    Production numbers:[8]

    Base: 121,051
    RS: 64,842
    SS: 34,411
    Z28: 602

      One big reason horsepower ratings were lowered in ’67 was in response to the Kennedy/Ribicoff Senate hearings of ’66 and the Traffic Safety and Highway Safety Acts of the same year. Big brother really had ’em back peddling, but the lower horsepower ratings were mostly a paper and pen job.

    In 1970 I bought a used white with black convertible top 68 Camaro RS/SS with a 396 / auto trans for $1,325.00. 2 things made me get rid of it I don’t like white cars and not a fan of convertibles, it was the 396 that sold me on the car, one car I should have kept for financial gains now.

    Hot Rod magazine tested the all new ’67 Camaro and really wrote up the 350 small block, claiming it would be the new engine of choice for hot rod tri-five chevys due to its abundance of low end torque compared to the 327. Hot Rod nailed that one as the 350 became one of the most popular engines ever created. Great looking car here.

I had a great day today helping my buddy put the doors, fenders, hood and hatchback on his 73 Nova. Been a long time, I forgot the Jazz of putting a car back together. So much fun and the look and the laughs where priceless! Sorry I had to go before the Bourbon. So much fun!

      Ha! Yeah, looks good to me, right down to those awful original battery cables and radiator hose clamps. While the price certainly removes most of us as potential buyers, I suppose it’s worth it, considering what a special car it is. Andy is right, oh the cars we should have saved in the 80’s, nobody wanted these. Somebody had the insight to squirrel this away, and should be rewarded for that.
