Stored For 30 Years: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

This 1967 Camaro Convertible has spent 30-years locked away from the world. It has now emerged into the light of day, and not only does the Camaro start and run, but it is also probably one of the best and most solid Camaro Convertible project cars that I have seen for quite a while. This is reflected in the price, as the owner has set a BIN of $19,000, but the option is there to make an offer. The Camaro is located in Hayward, California, and is listed for sale here on eBay.

Apart from some easily repaired rust on the radiator support, this Camaro looks to be as solid as a rock. Any other rust appears to be limited to nothing more than surface corrosion. The frame and all of the floors look good, as do the quarter panels and rockers. The paint is pretty tired, but at least this looks like a project car where the new owner won’t be sinking a pile of time and money into wholesale rust repairs. The soft-top is pretty shredded, and the frame is apparently pretty ordinary. However, the owner does have another top and frame, and the new owner may be able to negotiate a deal on that.

The only sour note (of sorts) that I can really sound is the fact that this doesn’t appear to be a numbers-matching car. The owner doesn’t believe that the existing 327ci V8 is original, although he doesn’t appear to be sure about that fact. Power from that V8 is transmitted to an automatic transmission. The good news here is that even after such an extended lay-up, the Camaro starts, runs, and drives. The owner says that the engine and transmission feel strong, but that the brakes will need some work, which is hardly surprising after all these years.

For me, the interior is the low point of the Camaro. It isn’t beyond saving, but there’s a bit to do there. The original radio is missing, and I suspect that there may have been an aftermarket stereo fitted at some point, as there are holes cut into the door trims for speakers. Still, the dash pad looks good, and I think that new covers on the seats, new carpet, and new door trims would have it all looking pretty good.

As a project car, this 1967 Camaro Convertible is not the cheapest that we’ve seen here at Barn Finds, but it certainly appears to be a good one. A fresh coat of paint and some new interior trim would have it looking pretty good. We’ve seen some pretty rough ones in the past, but for someone looking for a project car where they can perform most of the restoration work for themselves, this is a car that looks like a prime candidate.

    The speaker holes you are referring to are cut into the door panels. I don’t see any evidence of any of the trim being cut. Really nice starting point for a good solid project.

      Look behind the steering wheel and there is a large hole there.

        Yes, there’s a large hole cut in the Door Panel, as HydTech said. Not in the Door Trim, which is regularly misidentified by this writer. Proper terminology adds professionalism and credibility.

        Looks like a manual shifter on photo of interior, or am I wrong?

    That column shift automatic isn’t that rare on a 1967 or 1968 Camaro or Firebird even. I have seen a lot of them so equipped, even some 3 on the trees. I for one would actually prefer that setup myself, whether automatic or 3 speed. Of course, 4 should always be on the floor!
    If it were mine, I would replace the missing column shifter, throw a factory bench seat with the fold down armrest in it, do the paint & upholstery & just cruise it around. I am almost 50 & appreciate uniqueness over speed. At this point, gas mileage is important to me too. I know where there is an RS like this with a 6 cylinder. Got me thinking…..

    I don’t know. Is it just me, or does this seem overpriced for one that needs paint, interior, top, and I’m sure a fair amount of mechanical work as well?

    Can’t tell you if engine is original but have doubts about the intake. 67 should have breather tube by top rad hose outlet unless it’s late production then it would be what we used to call 6 7 8 block which would make it large journal crank . 67 was small journal so you could make 302 out of them easy peasy.

    This is a solid car and I believe it’s priced correctly , Camaro convertibles typically bring more money then mustangs.
