First Year Fun! 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Project

The Camaro was Chevrolet’s answer to the wild success of the Ford Mustang and 1967 was the first year for the new car. This one is a great potential project and can be found for sale here on eBay with a buy-it-now price of $15,000. Located in Osceola, Missouri, the car is conveniently located right in the middle of the country! I’m not sure it’s worth the asking price, but this looks like a fun one!

This is a base model car, but the seller has had it for over thirty years and it was purchased with a 327 and Super Sport trim. The engine has recently been rebuilt and the seller says, “The engine was pulled from a roadster years ago and has recently been professionally machined and re-built with 10/10 steel, eagle rods, forged flat tops, 280h cam, fresh double humps, and full roller rockers. It sounds really good and makes a lot of power.”

The interior needs a little TLC, but the bucket seats, wood-trimmed steering wheel, shifter, and console are a great start! The great thing about these cars is they are fully supported by the aftermarket with very high-quality reproduction and even some NOS (New Old Stock) parts still available.

The BFGoodrich tires with the chrome five-spokes are a great look, especially on these cars. The big-n-little combo completes the look and you can tell this car is ready to do a big smokey burnout! Does this look like the project for you? Everyone has a story about a Camaro, share your best one with us!

    There’s no point in using NOS parts with this car. It’s clearly been hot-rodded and the engine isn’t original. It could be put back to stock but it will never be completely original so just use the cleaned up original parts and whatever aftermarket parts necessary to complete this. The steering wheel looks aftermarket as well. I’m guessing the original color was the light blue seen on the inside of the passenger door there. It’s either going to be a period day-2 nostalgia muscle cruiser or a good start for a resto-mod.

    Respray Red strikes again. Enemy of original colors everywhere.

    The way I remember most of them back in the day. I’d keep the look except add a front bumper and tidy up the interior and then drive it like I stole it. On second thought, I would check that VIN first to make sure it wasn’t reported stolen.
