1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS Garage Find

1967-camaro-rs-garage-find

This 1967 Camaro was just pulled out of a garage in LA. It looks rough, but should make a good project for a Camaro lover. The car does run, but needs some work. Find it here on eBay where bidding is currently at $5k with only a few days left and no reserve.

The RS (Rally Sport) option was an appearance package which added hidden headlights along with a few other visual tweaks inside and out. Can you list them all?

The Camaro was created in response to Ford’s Mustang and it put up a good fight. There were many engine options available and luckily this one is equipped with a 327 V8 instead of the standard inline-six.

Unfortunately, that engine is attached to a PowerGlide automatic transmission. We would have preferred a four-speed, but obviously many buyers went this route. The RS steering wheel is still in place.

The seller claims that the car is original except for the rims, stereo, and exhaust which were added in the 80s. The exterior was also resprayed at some point and that fact explains the exterior’s shabby appearance. This Camaro does run and drive, but is going to need a full restoration. We think it should provide a solid base though. Now, you will just need to decide which direction to go. All original? Or something more exciting? Which way would you go and why?

    I wonder if it has the fold down rear seat option, alot of Rally Sports have it.

    First off: Its a (RS)? If you have $10,000 laying around then your in good shape!
    Futher to this its not in demand.. You can invest and cherry it out.. But it will always be an RS!! The RS was a lower line vehicle..

      67 was the first year for the Camaro. And the only year to come with vent windows. The RS package for the Deluxe Interior is more expensive, as well as the added hidden headlights, front turn signals, and rear backup lights. This can add nearly $ 5,000.00 in restoration costs if you have to replace back to original NOS.Having the fold down rear seat option is a bonus, and the RS Deluxe seat is narrower than the standard back seat that is in a non RS model.Actually the 67 RS was the second rarest combination, after the Z28 for that year. I would not agree that it is a lower line model.An RS Is more valuable than a standard Camaro. Models that are original RS/SS (350 sbc) are the most value behind the 302 Z28.

        Very well said.

      Like the current RS, an RS in the ’60s was an upgrade to the base car. The Rally Sport option was available on all models, including the SS (although the insignia still said SS, not RS) and gave it a more luxurious interior, more chrome and a console (IIRC) plus the obvious hidden headlights. It wasn’t an SS, true, but it also wasn’t a “lower line vehicle.”

        Actually RS option was available with anything EXCEPT the Z-28 option – could not be ordered together. Another useless fact – it was not officially called a Z-28 until 1968. In 67 Z-28 was the Chevy option code on the dealer paperwork for the 302 engine option.

    As many have heard before here, the auto that started it all for my love of cars besides Dad’s 63′ Impala SS283 was a 67′ RS/SS Camaro (Uncle Frank), It had a 427 block in it (factory) and had the hood pins and I remember where the fake hood vents were the middle area of the hood it was raised about an inch or so, it was that pale yellow color with a black vinyl top, auto trans (unc was old). I remember the 427 emblems were on the front corners of the fenders because in our travels in Texas we were stopped by a road construction flagman who just stared at the car and yelled “ya’all got a 427 in there?”, unc answered him by burning out bigtime lol

    I have a 2 owner 1967 Camaro RS that was built in San Fernando Valley and bought new by a Playboy Bunny who worked in a playboy club there. Friends of mine found the car in an estate sale in Reno, Nevada. They started resto of it and I got it from there. It now has a blown 355 sbc with 2 40 mm weber carbs, a 700R trans with a 2800 converter, 3:70 geared Auburn posi rear and discs brakes all around. Interior and exterior are stunning in black and white interior and black exterior. Has both spoilers and chromed rally wheels.Everything that was originally on the car I have stored in my garage, 327, PG, drum brakes, single exhaust, flat hood, the car is a stunner.

    THE RIRST THING I WOULD DO IS GET RID OF THOSE RIMS.ALWAYS HATED THEM.I THINK MAYBE A RESTOMOD. I HAVE NEVER DONE ONE AND THIS COULD BE A FIRST.

      Someday the giantic Foose style wheels that are popular today will look as dated as these slot rims. By contrast, the poverty style hubcaps look as cool today as they did when they were new.

    Keep stock appearance, but change to a crate 350 SB and a Turbo 350 (I’m old, too). New red/clear coat. To some this would probably be a boring combo, but it’s what I would like and it would never loose value. (And don’t forget the Flowmasters.)

  7. Jason

    Looks like the turbo may be all twisted and the rad is leakin, I wouldn’t pay over 70 k for this one

    This would be a fun driver just as it is. Can’t imagine the many who would try and pull you over or pulling into a gas station. Most first gen Camaros are on their 10th restoration. Seeing one that is natural with oil showing on the engine tells me it has not been altered. Wow! This car was never modified into a Frankenstein or been thrashed then put back together with a NPD catalog. This is a remarkable car. California car for sure but the plates look 1970 up blue. Before spending what this rare car will bring I’ll take my money (and have some left over) and buy a stock 390 AMX that will rip the front wheels off the ground!

    Gotta agree with AMCFAN. Get it straightened out mechanically and running right, but don’t touch the paint or interior. Maybe fix the driver seat a bit if it’s really bagged. Have to do something with the header panel to make it match the rest of the paint and get the headlight door working. Period.

    The RS option set you back about $105 and was well worth it. I would take this car any day and the RS is way better than a standard Camaro. The RS came with the chrome lower side panels. The deluxe interior is a plus. Approx. 64000 Camaros came with the RS option the first year, the number droped to 40k the second year. This is the easiest way to create a SS/RS if you want to go that path.

    What gives ?

    Seller claims IN RED LETTERS :
    3 day auction , no reserve.
    DON’T WRITE IT IF YOU DON’T MEAN IT !
    It gets to $11,100 in 2 days and he pulls the plug.

    What an ……
    I guess you can trust him as far as one can throw the car…

    I guess that 100% feed back means jack s**t

    The blue plate “J” series and the lack of an air pump on the 327 (undoubtedly originally a 2-pot Rochester) tells me this car was brought into California around 1973. Why do so many idiots have to scream “LS1 THM?” . . . . granted, the ‘Glide doesn’t efficiently take advantage of the proper power band of the SBC, but for goodness’ sake . . . . leave this one alone!

    Hey guys, here’s the car a few years later. A buddy and I drove it to high school as it was a few times and then took it all apart. Went for a light restomod. You’ll be happy to know we saved every single original part that we took off the car and stored it in a small shed, I call it a Camaro in a box.

  14. Big Ed

    Mine is still available. Mar.1st Barn Find if curious.

    Why didn’t GM stay with the electric hideaway headlights on 67 RS Camaros instead of going to the vacuum system on 68 and 69 models? As you know, the electric was more functional.
