’70s Style Barn Find! 1967 Chevrolet Camaro

Holy high school bodyshop, Batman! This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro coupe in Swiftwater, Pennsylvania flies its ’70s flag high, with flared fenders and a tail wing mural that’s either a ghostly cemetery or the skyline of New York (?) or another city. If you can prove that fuzzy dice never hung from the rear view mirror of this bitchin’ Camaro, I’ll bust out a salt shaker and eat my hat. Loud exhaust and those monster meats would scare away most poseurs, even if this Camaro packed a stock 327. Despite the missing title, rust, and non-running condition, the listing here on eBay has enticed at least ten bidders to take the market value of this bronze flashback above $6000.

The “Z/28” badges add to the high school hype. The seller wisely makes no mention or claim of this being a Z-28, and no such emblems graced a Z/28 until mid-1968, according to Hemmings. Rust seeps into the camera lens from all the places you’d expect on a neglected Keystone State classic. Undercarriage pictures in the listing show hope for any first-generation Camaro optimist. The “on-trailer” shots suggest anything over $2000 makes a happy seller. Metallic bronze paint covers the original Bolero Red.

The third pedal is a plus, though no mention of a transmission graces the listing beyond “manual.” This Chevy’s been picked over for parts, including the body-tag-indicated center console, but much of what’s left might come around with some patient cleaning.

A 1969-1980 small-block of unknown displacement has itself displaced the original engine. What look like equal-length headers might indicate a high-powered rebuild, or at least a healthy bolt-on budget. The seller makes no promises on the running condition of this engine. The listing does claims the VIN describes a “big block” four-speed car, however the VIN includes no engine-specific code, only cylinder count, and this one came as a V8 coupe. No engine code on the body tag points to a factory 327 cid V8 as the original mill. Thanks to chevy-camaro for some details. Personally I’d have to grow my hair out and run this puppy just as it looks, after making it safe and driveable of course. I’d add a CB radio and a whip antennae for sure. Do you have the swagger to rock this fender-flared, mural-tailed Chevy?

    Just a quick edit suggestion — the ad has been revised to say that the engine is NOT a 302.

    I’ve seen murals on the taillight panel but never on the back of a spoiler.

    This would have been a cool car during its prime. It was probably a real head turner. Too bad it’s reached this point of decay. If the paint on the whole car was in the same condition as the mural on the rear spoiler it would have been a great car to clean up as best as possible, get running with some vintage speed equipment and cruise around to local shows. It would be a hit wherever it went.

    It looks like there’s double jump heads on the engine…..

    TJK code is a 1973 truck engine, nothing special. Also seller states it may be a BB car, not if it has a small block heater core.

    This car has a steel scattershield, it probably saw some track/tough screet use. I would assume nothing works and a total resto is required.
