Field Of Dreams: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

This poor Camaro has been sitting in a field for 25 years. The floors are rotted. The body is crinkled. The engine is seized. And the previous owner is still looking for the title. Hmm, this is starting to sound like a pipe dream to me. There must be a few people who want it though as evidenced by the bidding here on eBay where the auction ends soon. Thanks goes to Patrick S for the tip!

Here’s a shot of the interior. Well, what’s left of it. The floors are rusted through, but that’s the least of your concerns. Everything has been exposed to the elements so plan on lots of pitting and corrosion. I’d say this could be used as a parts car, but I doubt there’s much here that wouldn’t need to be restored before being installed.

The seller mentions that the engine won’t turn over and I assume that means it’s seized up. I don’t see any evidence of them hooking up a battery and seeing it it really “turns over”. A V8 would be more exciting than an inline-six, but I suppose it wouldn’t be a big deal to transplant something else in there while you are refurbishing every single surface.

This just keeps getting better! The body looks like it’s been in a wreck or maybe it’s so badly rusted that the whole car has twisted? The seller does mention that “the body shifted” when they moved it… Wait a minute. None of that really matters if you buy a Dynacorn reproduction body! It’s hard to believe that a VIN tag and title could be worth more than a grand, but I’m guessing that’s what people are planning. What do you think? Is there a future for this field find?

      ship it to scottsdale some fool pay a 100 grand for it, and laugh at the good deal they got! at the B.J 3 ring circus!

    Yard art. This guy and the one wanting almost 9k for the pile of 58 Corvette parts should get together and dream.

  3. Jesper

    What a shame

    Horrible, horrible things happened to that car on the way from the field to that shop.

    • JamestownMike

      Agreed! Looks like it buckled in half when they transported it from the field! Look at the driver door before and after the move.

        Hood peeled back between photo shoots as well. Ain’t no way to treat a pile of Bowtie detritus.

  6. John M.

    I’ll pass.

  7. Fred w.

    Usable grille maybe? Don’t see much else.

  8. Joe

    Throw some SS badges on it.

  9. Dave Mc

    Looks like you could compact it with a 2×4. Rusty flakes.

    As they say a fool and his money are soon parted. The seller said that body shifted when they tried to move it, that a nice way of saying it folded in the middle and now the door won’t close. When a car reaches this point it should just be scrapped, if your going to build a dyncorn car they come with there own tag so why not just buy all the pc’s and just make a new car. What people won’t try to sell. I could not sell somthing like this in good conscience with out feeling like I’m ripping the buyer off at any price. The current owner was probably given the car just to get it out of the field. I know when your at a car show to have a numbers matching car gives you bragging rights but the general public walking by your car looking at it really don’t give a $h!t it’ll just be the odd die hard that cares. I’m in the camp of the don’t give a $h!t, as for resale it’s a 6 cylinder car and people looking for a pony cars want a v8 car, and there goes the numbers matching thing out the window. If it were here in Canada you could get about $40.00 for it in scrap weight value. JMHO.

    CLEARLY, someone is buying a cowl tag, vin tag and bill of sale (possible title IF previous owner finds it=UNLIKELY) for $1,000+ dollars! Thing is, this is a 6 cylinder car as denoted in the third digit of the vin! So regardless what drivetrain you put in it, the “born as” a 6 cylinder will ALWAYS follow this car not matter how much money you throw at it!

  12. Pete

    If he can get the title and the body tags are intact, it would be a doable resto mod. But can you sell it for more than you have in it after you are done that is the question.

  13. Classic Steel

    Looks like a daily driver to me with patina 🙃I head it was owned by Steve McQueenders 😅

    Definitely a tag removal and a new body replacement with a v8 and salvage the dash etc and guages

  14. OA5599

    The title comes with a complimentary Tetanus shot.

  15. Pa Tina

    Might have been a Camaro at one time.

  16. Bill Manzke

    Considering how bad this one is, you’d need to pay someone to take it away. Nothing left but s/n and cowl tag on it worth anything.

  17. newfieldscarnut

    25 years too late …
    too bad , oh well .

  18. Wrong Way

    If someone gets this old rusted tattered up bow tie, I am sure that it would be for the challenge! There isn’t much there to love?

  19. ACZ

    Hauling it away to the scrap yard would leave you in the negative.

  20. GTO MAN 455

    its SAD but its TRASH

  21. Jake Blues

    That will buff right out!

  22. stillrunners LAWRENCE Member

    Let’s just remember….someone or one’s….had a lot of fun in this old Camero…once upon a time.

  23. glen

    Good thing he’s willing to keep in indoors, wouldn’t want any snow or rain getting on it! too funny.

  24. Glen

    It sold for just under 1200!

  25. Larry Q

    Change the oil…score some used tires..wash it and RIDE!!! ??I mean seriously folks. Really?

  26. Dt1

    If that s the field of dreams ,I’m having a night mere

  27. PAPERBKWRITER

    The seller could sell ice to an Eskimo.

  28. PatrickM
