EXCLUSIVE: 1967 Camaro Pro Street Project

Edward H describes his Camaro as a, “street and strip (Pro Street) car”, and given that it’s packing a 406 cui V8 I don’t doubt that it was fast! It’s a fully built machine, with lots of performance upgrades, but the block has a bad rod so it’s currently sitting on stands in his garage collecting dust. It’s time for it to go to a new home with someone who will get it back up to speed! You can find this Camaro in Largo, Maryland with a $15k asking price. If you are interested in taking a closer look or making him an offer, be sure to message him using the form below!

From Edward – It needs a short block, as it has a bad rod. The rest of the mechanicals in good shape though. Engine is 406 cu in, it’s a 13.5/1 sml blk with AFR 215 aluminum heads. Turbo 400 with manual forward pattern valve body. It’s a Gear Vendors Overdrive gearbox. 5k ATI converter. Holley 950 carb. The front brakes are discs with drums in the rear. It has a 12 bolt rear with Moser “C clip” axles and Brute Strength diff. It also has front and rear heavy duty sway bars and 5 leaf spring package arched for 29″ slicks if desired. I also have spare parts like new CPP frt disc brakes and 2″ drop spindles in the boxes. 

Interior is in very good condition. The seats are actually from a ’69. New carpet. Ratchet shifter. Roll bar with driver and passenger swing outs. Diagonals pass through floor to frame connectors. Wipers, heater, radio and lights all work.

What a great looking Camaro! It’s too bad about the engine, but a new block could be sourced and built fairly easily. I might step back the performance a bit, to increase longevity. You could always put it back to stock and have a more relaxed, but still fun, driver! What do you think, would you take on returning this pony to its former tire shredding glory or would you make it a causal daily driver?

Special thanks to Edward for listing his Camaro! If any of you have a classic that you are thinking about selling, please consider listing it here as an Exclusive. There’s no risk and as long as your car is priced right, it should sell quickly.

    I really like this car! I’d return it to a driver.

      I agree with them, drop in a crate 350 and use it for a day driver, the roll bar and 3 point seat belts would make a interesting subject at a car show.

    What he said

    • Keith C

      Nope. Stock-width rear axle.

    Wonder how much if he just kept the motor and some other stuff?,,,

    Holy moly, this is awesome! This reminds me of every HotWheels car I had as a kid, and (to me) is what pony cars are all about!

    My my…bad rod….wonder how that happened? Frankly, if that’s the only problem, why not just yank the engine and fix it? Or “simply” drop the oil pan and replace the bushings in the connecting rods and crank. It’s already on blocks. It may only require that.?. On the other hand, likely, ALL the rods and connecting bits need attention with a high spun motor at the drag strip. I really like the car the way it is. I’d pull and rebuild the engine. What a terror of a machine in this lightweight package!

      The seller did state the easiest repair would be a short block.

    if the body is rust free I would say it is worth the cash even if the whole motor is shot, but it would be nice to salvage the heads…

  8. JW

    I would like others have said just pull the motor and drop in a crate 350 and drive it and yes if body is rust free it’s worth his asking price.

    Looks like a great buy, I agree with the guys above, 350 drop in and enjoy it on the roads and the car shows.
    Wish I had the money and was closer, my favorite car. Someday I still hope to own one.

    Hello Barn Find followers, my 67 Camaro started out as a bread and butter 2 dr coup in gold. 10 blt rear, mono leaf spring, drum brakes, pwr steering and no air. A 350 4bbl and turbo 350 trans motivated it. It had a console with an Oldsmobile shifter.
    The 12 blt rr was out of a 72 Nova. Its longer than the earliest version by a couple of inches. We replaced and moved the spring perches inward and set the pinion angle 2 deg. down. Wheels have 5 1/2″ backspace. You can run a 315/55 drag radial which is 12″ sidewall to sidewall. Mounted are 275/55×15 M/T’s. Not back halfed.

    The Achilles heel of all 400 cu in Chevy sml blks is crank flex and not enough meat in bottom half to clamp it. We internal balanced the crank like the 350’s. Also used steel main caps on all 5 mains. It ran from 2000 to 2009! They make good siamesed bored blocks in the aftermarket now and GMPP. Dart blks etc. Thats why we have the deep skirted blocks in the LS engines that most race cars have had for decades. I didn’t want to use a lightweight reciprocating assembly for street driving. But Chevy does now in the Vette versions.
