Carport Find: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS

Rumors started the circulate in early 1965 that Chevrolet designers were already working on their answer to Ford’s newly successful Mustang. It was code-named Panther and – 18 months later – the final product would debut badged as the name Camaro. In its first year, Chevy would sell one Camaro for every two Mustangs, so they had their work cut out for them. This first-year Super Sport would see more than 34,400 copies built, the large majority being the SS 350 like the seller’s rolling project, which may also be a Rally Sport. Located in Marvin, North Carolina, this Camaro’s interior is full of parts and the car is available here on craigslist for $8,000. Thanks for the tip, Chuck Foster!

The 350 cubic inch V8 was new to Chevrolet in 1968 and exclusive to the Camaro until the following year. The L48 SS option at 295 hp added $210.65 to the sticker price. But 85% of the Camaro Super Sports built in ’68 came with the L48, making it not especially rare. However, these cars were built for speed, and many were abused and found their way to the scrap yard way too soon. The seller’s L48 has avoided that fate so far – but not by much. We surmise this car may have been an RS, too, given the likelihood of hidden headlights whose trap doors are no longer there.

This Camaro is a chassis with wheels at this stage. The engine and 4-speed transmission the car was built with have long since flown the coop, along with its glass. It’s hard to tell how complete this rusty, once-blue Chevy is because a lot of parts and components are piled up in the interior. It still has its original 12-bolt rear-end, but most everything else may be subject to a search for replacements. At least an attempt has been made to keep the car covered, but that may not have prevented rust from becoming Public Enemy #1. And the title is missing, so is this car viable for a restorable, or do you buy it for the VIN?

    It’s going to cost a fortune to bring this poor baby back to life, but it’s worth a couple grand in parts.

    Another pile only a fool would spend money to buy and then dump thousands into a restoration. These early Camaros have been valuable for decades. Strange how they end up like this. I will never understand people.

    Even if it was complete $6k is crazy, $2k is questionable.

    Not a car. But the right to build a car and have a V.I.N. for it when done.

    We all love the muscle car era but let’s face it these were rare in some cases but mostly a daily driver. They looked great for sure but to make this one great once again it’s going to take a lot of spit and shine. The car has been sitting way too long, in some cases the new buyer may spend a couple of thousand just to get it to a destination. I think $4000.00 tops

    When the author says “buy it for the VIN”, I am assuming to be used on another vehicle. Rebodies are illegal, and I am surprised he would say or condone breaking federal laws. There are already too many shady individuals cheating unsuspecting buyers like that.

    When you cover a car witha tarp and leave it for an extended period of time this is what all that trapped moisture does.

    The Craigslist ad lists the car in fair condition. Was that the only option. I think it’s FAIR to say “NOT”

      Indeed, it’s not even a ‘car’ any longer – just a few rusted parts.

    Typical seller. Waits till the car is junk. Then thinks it’s worth big money. Whats with people are they that ignorant when it comes to car storage? You don’t cover a car outside, with a plastic tarp. You might as well spray water on it everyday. It would be same thing.

    Looks like someone started to restore it and gave up when they decided it was too much for them. You can see a new floor pan in one of the pics that is tacked in but not completely welded in. I wonder what the story on this car is, how it got to the condition it’s in and why was it allowed to get that way. I doubt anyone is going to pay the asking price so it might wind up sitting and rusting away. I think for a car like this it’s best to put it on EBay and let the highest bidder take it.

    Do I sense instant gratification here? Seems many folks here don’t want to put some hard work into a project. They want to just say how bad it is. Someone will buy this and bring it back very nicely, and then all you naysayers will be standing in line to buy. Or will you criticize it to death and still say what you would have done instead? What’s up with that?

      It’s not the car , I love all Camaros. It’s the price, and the fact that someone let’s a car be that far gone before trying to get top dollar out of it
