Basically Complete: 1967 Camaro

1967 Camaro

I love the looks of this early Camaro, well at least from this angle. Take a look from any other angle and you’ll quickly notice that this thing is rusty! The seller admits it has lots of rust issues, but thinks it’s complete and solid enough to be worth restoring. Given that it’s a ’67 with a 327 V8 and a 4 speed, I think there might be some potential here. Finding all the parts to fix it won’t be that difficult, but it’s also not going to be cheap. It’s going to need a ton of metal replaced, on top of all the other bits that need to be restored or replaced. At least it’s basically complete! You better take a closer look at this one here on eBay. It’s located in Akron, Ohio and has a BIN of $8,500 and a high bid of $5,100.

1967 Camero Frame

If you decide to take this one on, you better bust out the cutting torch and welding unit right now. There’s rust on just about every panel, including some nasty holes in the floors and trunk. The seller believes the frame is solid, but boy do I see a lot of rust under there.

I really like the looks of the early Camaros, but I’m not sure about fixing this one up. It might be a good candidate for receiving a reproduction body, with all new metal components. The seller even has a brand new motors for it that hasn’t been installed, which would make the whole process a lot simpler! So what do you think, is this one worth the headache?

    Being a first year car, someone will save it; I hope. It won’t be me.

    look, even the rear spoiler that’s in the trunk is rusted!

    ok, it can’t rust but it is cracked.

    this would be a lot of work.

    again at the right price for someone who knows these f1 gen camaros/firebirds and has the skills to repair/replace/renew this could be a good deal. not for me.

    “The bad:
    Front clip: every panel has rust somewhere, somehow.”

    NOT a L/30-M-20 car, only thing it had going for it is deluxe interior.

    Headache? more like wallet punch. I don’t really like the 67 coupe body that much and a plain Jane? is not worth the BIN to me.

      Junk it!

    Bust out the torches? Bust out the credit card and a call to dynacorn. Buy the car for the VIN, buy the new body shell, build it as you see fit. Not worth fooling with as is.

    I u dressing the restoring and replacing parts what I never understood is buying a car and then turning around and buying a whole new replacement,reproduction body. Why don’t you just start with the new body and build off of that. Who cares if it’s the original part from 67. If you are determined enough you can find all the parts you need. Reproduction, or original. At least with a new body you know what your starting with down and deep
