“America's other ponycar is high on the 'gotta-have' list.” –Motor Trend, 1967-69 Chevrolet Camaro Buyer's Guide, July 2006
The Motor ztrend writer continued: “Anyone who's ever owned a 1967-1969 Camaro will smile when telling you stories about his car--and a look of wistful regret comes over his face when he explains why he had to sell it. For many, the Camaro is the one that got away. Not only was the body style unique, but it came to market with something for everyone: value-minded sixes, mid-level V-8s, and knock-your-socks-off, take-'em-to-the-track small- and big-blocks. This is a big reason why Camaros are now so highly sought and why the legend continues to grow.”
“Bottom Line: One of America's greatest ponycars ever....”
Some 54 years later, the metallic fire-red over black 1967 Chevrolet Camaro coupe offered here is a beautifully restored Los Angeles, California car, tastefully upgraded yet still true to the marque's heritage, distinctiveness, and inherent appeal. The car's odometer shows just 48,552 miles, or fewer than 900 miles per-year on average since new.
The car's exterior features superb high-quality application of the fire-red metallic paint with even gloss and consistent reflectivity on the rust-free original sheet metal. There are no dents or dings on the body, and the panel-fit and alignment is excellent. The side-to-side front black racing stripe is perfectly applied and free of damage. The high-rise, cowl-induction hood and spoilers on the lower-front-valance and the rear decklid add visual interest and display the same flawless condition. (To best assess the quality of the paint and trim finishes, be sure to view the close-up photographs of the car in the accompanying gallery.) The chrome fender-well accents, body-side trim, window surrounds, bumpers, door handles, side mirrors, and taillight surrounds all display near-perfect shine. Chevrolet-script front badge, Camaro-block-letter and front-fender, crossed-flags “350” engine-size emblems, “SS” front-fender and front grille emblems, and “SS” fuel-filler-cap badge are all in place. Lighting lenses, and cabin glass are all excellent. Stock rally-style, 15-inch, steel wheels with chrome trim rings and “Chevrolet Motor Division” turbo-style hubcaps are mounted with BFGoodrich® Radial T/A 235/60 raised-white-letter performance tires; both wheels and tires are free of curb rash or other damage.
Inside the car, surfaces show very well. Door panels in black are pristine. Classic, vertically pleated, stitched-black-vinyl seat upholstery is free of flaws or even minor wear indications. (The rear-facing seat-back panels show light damage from rear-seat passengers.) Black cabin carpeting, protected by rubber floor mats, is in excellent condition. The dashboard is stock and complete with the addition of a steering-column-mounted AutoMeter® Sport-Comp 10,000-rpm programmable tachometer. Auxiliary AutoGage® water-temperature, oil-pressure, and alternator-output gauges are mounted forward of the center console. The Camaro features front power disc brakes. The t-bar shift lever for the automatic transmission is located on the center console forward of the storage compartment. A later-model, black, 4-spoke steering wheel with Chevrolet bowtie emblem center is in place. No radio is mounted. Door sills with Fisher Body logos show no sign of wear from inattentive passengers dragging their feet upon entry. The car's trunk interior is properly finished and very clean.
Under the hood, the Chevrolet performance, 327 cubic-inch V8 is the star of a spotless engine bay. An open-sided matte-black air-cleaner assembly and matching matte-black valve covers both display red Chevrolet bowtie logos. A bare-metal Edelbrock® intake manifold and the correct Chevy-orange engine-block paint make for a compelling performance impression. All engine-bay surfaces are spotless, and all components are properly mounted. The car's undercarriage continues the “spotless” theme with every component perfectly clean and properly installed. The custom exhaust headers, dual exhaust system, and views of the lower engine and transmission surfaces are all visual focal points. (Be sure to check out the startup video on the GarageKeptMotors site for a sampling of the compelling engine note.) Only minimal light surface rust is present on some untreated metal.
The original identification and build tags remain as mounted at the Norwood, Ohio factory.
While the more than 150 high-definition photographs and the short walk-around-and-startup video available on the GarageKeptMotors website showcase this '67 Camaro in detail from every angle, including from below, we expect and encourage in-person inspections at our Grand Rapids, Michigan showroom. Please call to arrange an appointment in advance as our showroom is not open to the public. And feel free to get in touch anytime by phone or email if you have questions.
Motor Trend concluded their buyers-guide take on the early Camaros this way: “Whether it's love of the look of the first-generation F-car, ... or the desire to have something to take to the Burger Biggie on cruise night, the 1967-1969 Camaro is one of the most popular muscle/ponycars out there. Don't let it get away this time.”
Add the quality of the restoration work here, the beautiful color, the performance chops, and the overall superb condition of this fire-red Camaro, and that last line is even more compelling.
