Sitting Since ’84: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro

This is one of those instances where you’re glad the seller didn’t get around to working on the car. This is a highly original 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, equipped with a matching 327 paired to a 3-speed on-the-floor manual transmission. According to the seller, the 3-speed is unusual when paired to this engine, and that along with the gold paint and interior trim makes this Camaro project a stand-out. Find it here on eBay with bidding over $6K and the reserve unmet.

Why are we glad the seller didn’t work on it? Well, they admit that their plans were to convert the Camaro to a widebody, a conversion that seems better suited to a less original car. The Camaro is equipped with air conditioning and power steering, but no word on whether the glass is still with the Camaro or included in the sale. No specific word on the taillights, either, but he mentions having “all the parts,” so hopefully the disassembly didn’t get too far.

The seller notes some level of restoration work has occurred, including the installation of new floors and quarter panels. However, the dash is still cracked and the glovebox looks like its about ready to fall off, so there’s plenty more to do. Also, that rare gold interior appears to be in tatters, so plan on a full re-do if you want to keep this unusual color combination intact. The seller mentions that relatively few customers chose the three-speed manual / V8 option, and I’m sure one of our Camaro experts could pinpoint exactly how many.

While it is numbers matching, the engine has already been removed. The seller claims they did hear it run before removal, and I’m guessing it was extricated in part because they planned to go with a larger motor to suit the widebody build. Again, be glad they didn’t toss or sell the motor before realizing what a gem they had on their hands in terms of originality. The seller claims this one will be worth a chunk of change when fully restored; I’m just glad it’s not on its way to becoming yet another restomod.

    I ordered my ’68 with the 327 and HD 3spd floor shift. Would love to know how many were like this.

    I know I show this semi often… but these are fun cars, the only thing wrong is that it seams everyone and there mother has one so they aren’t that eye catching because they are pretty common in the car collecting world… But best of luck to the buyer

      My brother is the original owner of a burgundy 327 with an automatic and gold Interior. That
      is close to original . He had to restore the body 20
      body 20 years ago but it still looks all original.

    WOW it was stored when I graduated from high school, that wasn’t that long ago was it ? Fortunately for me I have all my original parts like this Camaro, and I really like this one. If it can be bought at a decent price it’s well worth it, and would be a nice project to work on. I’m all about originality, and this one checks alot of boxes, with the 3 speed manual as an added bonus. Good luck to the new owner ! BTW, speaking of a cracked dash, I had a local Fibernew company take care of a hole in the lower dash of my ’71 Corvette LT1. Some genius mounted an oil gauge there, instead of replacing the one in the dash. After fixing the problem, I was left with a hole and this company did a FANTASTIC job fixing it. I had someone come to my garage and fix it, (matched great ) and the price was reasonable, saving me money and time replacing it with a new part.

    the 327.210 horse with the 3 speed manual was the standard V8 for 67 and not rare at all, though it may be rare to see one today.. the mini tub on one side is not good and neither is the rusted clean through cowl. also NOT equipped with factory A/C, perhaps dealer installed? I see the reserve has not been met at 7100$ which is more than fair for a rusty base 67 V8 camaro.

    Oh, what you used to get for $12k…In the early ’80’s while in the military, I purchased a 19701/2 Z-28: equipped with 350LT-1, M-22 (rock-crusher), 202 heads, pop-up pistons, 3.73 rear end, all for the meager sum of $2500. What an encredibly muscle-laden production car this was…The lobing sound that emanated told the story…

    Every one has a different opinion of what is cool!! Personally I can’t stand shaved door handles or flared fenders in these cars!! If it were a model a on the other hand I would cut it chop it channel it to make it cool but these cars didn’t need that!!

    I didn’t realize tacky fender flares are now called “wide body”. Whoever buys this car will need to redo the quarters.

    The BIN seems too high for what you are getting. If he had put it on the lift, visible in the background and took additional pictures of the undercarriage for the ad, that would help. But that involves work, something most sellers aren’t willing to do anymore, even though doing so brings a higher sale price and makes a car easier to sell.

      I’d take a 3 on the tree to be honest.. for rarity alone

    My first 67 was powered by the 295 hp 327 backed by the 3 on the floor eventually trashed it replaced by an old borg warner 4 speed out of a 58 vette.

      I have to wonder why someone quits after going this far. When you buy a disassembled car it’s a pig in a poke. I was once burned that way, will never do it again.
