Garage Find: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS

Tucked away in a garage, the seller of this rare RS/SS Camaro had planned for a full restoration, but recently started a business where he needs to send this muscle car to a new home. Fairly complete, this Camaro project will need some tlc, but would make for a great restoration. Check it out here on eBay out of Longmont, Colorado.

Apparently raced in the past, this now partially disassembled 350 V8 is waiting to be revived. The current 350 V8 and 4 speed transmission are not original to this Camaro. Also there are no details given on the current condition of the drive-train. I would assume that the car has been parked for quite a while based off of the split and dry rotted passenger side front tire.

Lacking carpet, and a few small trim items, the interior looks to be in decent enough condition. The dash shows well, but an aftermarket steering wheel and gauges have been added. The floors and trunk are solid in this Camaro, which is certainly a positive for this classic.

The wheel arches are in rough condition, and body filler has been plastered into the rusty areas. Unfortunately we cannot see the rockers, or the lower section of the quarters. Also there is rust along each seam between the rear window and the trunk opening. The RS/SS hide away headlight grill is missing, and the seller explains that there are a few other non-RS/SS items either on or with the car. Also a bit difficult to see, but there is a very large dent in the driver side door. If the worst of the rust is the wheel arches, then this Camaro may be a simple enough project. Would you take a chance on this RS/SS garage find?

    One of the best looks of 60s muscle cars!

    The seller says it’s a $70,000 car when restored. He’s living in a fantasy world if he believes that. Even if he can document that it left the factory as an SS/RS, the lack of matching numbers will hold down the value. He’d be lucky to get $35,000, even with a top notch restoration.

      Agreed, after seeing so many sellers making outrageous claims of potential value,you have to wonder if they’re actually that delusional or is it a matter of blowing smoke at an uneducated buyer?

      • Steve R

        Probably it’s a little of both.

      nada says 67 rs is worth 49,900 cherried out with original drivetrain. low retail is 11,000. with no ac. a very savable car…

    i say do the minimums on this car put it back together and cruise her the way she is . it looks fairly decent. these cars just seem more attractive to buyers young and old in repairable and used condition. if it were to be completely restored it would be just another camaro. rather than a camaro with potential. this one would be a keeper cause it presents minor challenges that most anyone could do to get her going again. heck put the engine top on, replace the door, and rivet minor quarter skins on just like they do on these old pickups. and take her out and show her that way. you would be constantly harassed if she’s for sale .

    It most likely will be a $70K car when restored…..that’s what it will cost to buy it and restore it. Believe me, I know. I’m finishing up on a 3 year restoration of a 1969 SS Camaro, which I bought as a “restored” car. Turns out it was a pig with lipstick. But close to $100K later, it will be an outstanding car.

      i guess it just goes to show you that you have to love that car to sink that kind of dough in it.

    Why does anyone think it’s ok to open a motor up and leave it opened for rust and mice to venture into the heads and block???? This is an iconic classic muscle car it takes two to five minutes to cover the openings with masking tape if you plan to leave it open for a while!!!

      maybe he was experimenting with a new water garden feature.

    Over 34,000 SS’s made. Probably half of them RS/SS. Worst case scenario, 5 to 20 thousands made. Thousands made does not compute to ”rare”. Just my opinion.

      some collectors say after 10 years passes there are only 10 % left from the factory. its now over 50 years . wonder whats left. they can’t be all in barns. id settle for 1 that misses the crusher.
