Rust Free Survivor: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS Convertible

This 1967 Camaro RS Convertible is a rust-free survivor that has been parked since 1994. The owner has revived this classic pony car and has decided that the time has come for it to head off to an owner who is going to use, enjoy, and appreciate this beauty. The Camaro is located in Liverpool, New York, and is listed for sale here on eBay. Bidding has been pretty spirited and has pushed the price along to $26,000. However, the reserve has not been met.

While the Camaro presents very nicely, it is worth noting that it underwent a repaint in its original Ermine White at some point in the 1980s. The fact that it still looks this good today would seem to suggest that this work was completed to a fairly high standard. The manual soft-top has also been replaced at some point, and it looks to be clean and tidy. If you are searching for rust issues, then the news on this front is all good. There actually aren’t any. Looking over the comprehensive set of photos supplied by the owner reveals a car that is as clean as you could ever hope to find. About the only fault that the owner identifies is the fact that the headlight doors don’t currently work, so at least that is going to give the new owner something to do.

For me, the Camaro’s Deluxe interior trim is a real highlight in what is already a very nice car. The black upholstery with the white stripes is a great look, and everywhere you look, the interior appears to be in close to flawless condition. The floor console looks really good, and the optional factory gauge package is a nice, and desirable, touch. The Camaro has been fitted with an aftermarket radio/cassette player at some point, but it looks like it would be pretty easy to remove this and substitute a factory radio.

That is one seriously clean 327ci V8 nestling under the hood. In fact, the entire engine bay presents superbly, and from an aesthetics perspective, there isn’t a lot to fault here. The 327 pushes out 210hp, which is sent to the rear wheels via a 4-speed manual transmission. The Camaro was also optioned with power steering and power brakes. We’ve had plenty of good news with this Camaro so far, and there is a bit more left for you. The entire drive-train for this car is what was fitted when the car rolled off the Norwood assembly line in June of 1967. Yep, this is a numbers-matching survivor. You would be forgiven for thinking that after a long hibernation, that there would be a bit to do to get the Camaro back up and running again. If you did, then you’d be wrong on that score. The owner says that the Camaro starts, drives, and stops really well. As an added bonus, he also holds complete service records for the car dating back to 1974.

The owner of this Camaro RS Convertible is pretty realistic about the car. While he acknowledges the fact that it is a solid and clean car, he also admits that the paint is not of show quality. It does have the occasional scratch and mark, but that’s probably a good thing. It means that the next owner can drive and enjoy the car without the fear and paranoia that an errant stone may chip his pride and joy. It is honest cars like this one that are simply made to be driven, appreciated, and enjoyed. It might not be perfect, but I think that it would still be a pretty nice car to own.

    Adam, I challenge you to do just one post without using the word “fitted”!

    How is a car that has received a repaint a “survivor?”

      It isn’t, the seller used a lot of car words to drive up the bidding. This Camaro has been very nicely restored.

      I think the Seller is just noting that it is all original sheetmetal, matching numbers drivetrain, & equipped as it was when it left the factory.
      No, not a pure & true “survivor” car, but still a very nicely preserved (& repainted) example!

    Perfect combo convertible, small block 327 (which is my personal favorite small block) and a 4 speed!!! If I had the coin it would be mine!! Looks to be refinished correctly too!!

    I’ve always felt that IF a car looks good in white then you KNOW that it has good body lines. This one certainly supports that theory!
    & (as others have already noted) I do also love the combo of 327, 4-speed, convertible, RS package, etc.
    I suspect that the bidding will continue well beyond the current bid of $27,599.89.
    Nice car! :-)

    An RS could not be any nicer than this one. Expect the bidding to reach new highs for this year-model.

    No power brakes here. No brake booster. Nice car otherwise.

      Drums too, a power disc upgrade would be a good idea, I wonder if its still a single leaf rear?

      Surely they could be “fitted”.

    Beautiful car-but- for petes sake he has the car up in the air and doesn’t take any pics of the underbelly??? I agree looks to me like its been restored, and that’s fine but the description is full of fluff. Anyhoo–a serious buyer would inspect anyway. Up to 28 large and hasn’t hit reserve. Good luck to the new owner, cruise in style. Some minor things to fix–why not fix them when u are going for the big bucks?

    Really ?
    You guy’s are concerned with the term ” fitted ” ? How about ” equipped ” ? What a bunch of self absorbed d–ks. Get real. Try writing, daily, and attempting to please everyone.

      I agree Neil. Lol. I enjoy Adams posts. Who really cares? As a car guy, not to concerned about the text. Always understandable to me. Maybe they do not get it. It seems like there is a tiny group after him. Not sure why. I am happy to read from someone one on the other side of the pond. Keep reporting Adam, thank you! Take care, Mike.

    This is really a nice looking car, except for the engine compartment. The author’s comment “That is one seriously clean 327ci V8 nestling under the hood” is pretty funny to me. The engine has enough paint on it for 5 Chevy engines. It looks like it was dipped in paint. The remainder of the engine compartment is also horribly finished in satin black, like everywhere. This car would be a much better car if under the hood was never touched. It will attract some buyers that will think it is “restored”, and it will take quite an effort to un-do all that. I can’t stand spray can restorations. But at the end of the day, still a beautiful car… until you open the hood.
