Work-In-Progress: 1967 Chevrolet Camaro

Between 1964 and 1966, the Ford Mustang practically owned the “pony car” market (including the slower-selling Plymouth Barracuda). The first real threat to the kingdom came in 1967 when Chevrolet rolled out the Camaro and sold 221,000 copies (less than half that of the Mustang). More than 25,000 convertibles were assembled that year, including the seller’s rolling project. Some of the heavy lifting has already been done, but lots more to remain. Located in Glastonbury, Connecticut, this Chevy is available here on eBay where $6,100 didn’t crack the reserve.

As best we can tell if you opted for a V8 in the Camaro, the 327 cubic-inch engine was the entry point. We’re guessing that’s what’s in the seller’s car, although neither the motor nor automatic transmission are numbers-matching. We’re told that when the seller bought this project, it was all in boxes and he/she replaced stuff as the process of putting Humpty Dumpty back together again pressed forward. A bit unusual for the times, this drop-top was equipped with factory air conditioning and at least the compressor is still present. The fold-down rear seat was an option; this is the first time I’ve seen one.

New stuff includes both front fenders, the windshield, and both rear quarter panels on what was once an Ermine White Camaro (per the cowl tag). The sub-frame has been sandblasted and painted. We’re told the floorboards were good, so new carpeting has already been installed. But there’s no hole for the automatic shifter to pop through, nor do we even see the shifter.

The engine (a 327?) is said to be locked up and some accessory pieces are missing under the hood. They may be a part of the collection of parts that the seller has photographed as a group, including some of the chrome trim. No title will come with the vehicle, just a Connecticut Bill of Sale. So, if you’re interested in finishing the work done here, check with your DMV if you have any questions about titles.

    That’s a 2bbl 327 in there, and I see a clutch pedal. This is an odd build, for sure. Since this reads as not numbers matching, I think a nice solid small block, keep the A/C, and install a nice 5 speed is a great way to go.
    There is so much reproduction for these, a console with gauges would be a nice addition.
    Not exactly a blank slate, but close.

    My cousin bought one of these when they first came out. Back then, you ordered your car to your taste and budget and 6 weeks later, you got your car. Not like now with option packages and the dealer ordering the car weeks before you ever show up. The only upside is you don’t have to wait 6 weeks. But I digress.
    She ordered hers with a six cyl. engine, 4 on the floor, and a manual convertible top. I think that was pretty much it.
