1967 CAMARO RS CONVERTIBLE
This Camaro has been in this area its entire life. The car was owned for many years by a local School Teacher and then it sold to one of the more prominent Chiropractors in the area. Finally it was purchased by a local gentleman that owns a collection of various muscle and collectible cars.
This gentleman has been retired now for a few years (he is in his mid 70's), and his Car Collection is just taking more time, energy and money, than he prefers to invest, and he also wants to do some more traveling. So.., he is selling some of his "babies". And this is one of them!
About 7 years ago, he had a VERY THOROUGH "body-on" restoration performed by a well known local Restoration Company. The Camaro was originally Butternut Yellow, but he had a complete color change performed by the Restoration Company to its current Bolero Red color. (The Camaro was a VERY straight and nice car when he purchased it, but he decided to take it to the next level and make it the pristine car it is today.) There has only been about 4,000 miles put on the car since the restoration and they have been EASY cruising miles put on only by him.
I would not call this a "trailer queen", simply because those cars rarely (if ever), get driven and are essentially more like a "wall decoration". However, this is certainly an EXCEPTIONALLY nice driver and very enjoyable to cruise in! And.., I can tell you this, it already has won numerous awards at Car Shows and will continue to do so for the lucky new owner should that person decide to enter it in car shows!
It's important to note, this car is not being promoted as a "numbers matching" car. However, having said that, I have done a general documentation of this Camaro and can tell you it actually is still quite original.
Here are the things I know to be correct: (These items are easily verifiable by deciphering the Vin#, Cowl Tag, and Block Pad if you are a Camaro documentation buff and are interesed in the "originality" of the car.)
- It is an original Rally Sport.
- It is an original Convertible.
- It does have the correct Black Standard Interior.
- It does have the correct Console.
- It does have the correct Black Bucket Seats.
- It does have the correct Black Convertible Top.
- It is an original 327 Car.
- It is an original Manual Transmission Car.
- It does have the correct Suffix Code on the Engine.
Here is a Partial List of the things that were done during the restoration.

Once again, this is just a PARTIAL list and there are many more parts and items that have been replaced or updated. Some items have not been replaced on the car, simply because they were still in excellent condition and didn't, in the owner's opinion, warrant replacing.
The car was represented to me to have the original 327 Engine yet, and as I stated above, I have verified that it does have the correct Engine Suffix Code for the year, but some cars did not have the last six of the Vin# stamped on the front pad and this is one of those cars. It is probably on the back of the block, but I didn't bother to search for and verify it, because it isn't important to me anyway.
I can tell you this though - this car most definitely gets the looks and is REALLY fun to drive!
For what I have it priced at, unless you own a body shop, can buy the restoration parts at a discount, and donate all the labor, there is no way you could restore a similar car with the equipment it has and the condition this Camaro is in, for under $35,000, so this is a great buy..!!.
MY PRICE: $33,950 (Priced to sell quickly...)
