First Generation Camaros have always been favorites for both aficionados and regular muscle car fans alike, and high-impact cars like this 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS will always be popular. With a great-running 454 cubic inch big block V8, a comfortable Deluxe black interior, and the perfect predatory stance, it's a solid muscle car that looks and runs like a Camaro should.
The paint is Hugger Orange, the archetypal Camaro color that always looks fantastic, especially with white stripes running the length of the hood and deck lid. For fans of the simplicity of the early Camaros, few colors could be better, although it wasn't technically available in 1967. It seems to emphasize the sheetmetal's curves; just look at the kick-up behind the doors and the sharp crease that runs the length of the body, neatly bisecting the doors and rear quarter. As an true RS it has the traditional hidden headlights and simple single-element taillight lenses have been added for an SS look with the requisite emblems at the bookends. White Z/28-style stripes are always welcome and they look crisp and vivid against the orange paint, wrapping around the cowl-induction hood and the ducktail spoiler just the way the factory did it. Chrome is quite good throughout, including the front and rear bumpers, and someone has thoughtfully added a set of "SS" badges on the fenders, perhaps as a warning.
Complementing the Hugger Orange paint, a set of restored black Deluxe buckets greet you when you climb aboard. Plush black carpets and matching door panels complete the OEM look. This one also carries a center console outfitted with a horseshoe shifter, comfort-grip 3-spoke steering wheel, and, of course, that big block engine up ahead. Auxiliary gauges fitted at the leading edge of the center console are a Camaro trademark, and that 'staple' shifter falls easily to hand for managing the TH400 3-speed automatic transmission living underneath. Entertainment comes courtesy of a newer JVC AM/FM/CD stereo head unit that's been neatly installed in the center stack and seems to blend in with its surroundings. The back seat looks almost new, which isn't usually a surprise in Camaros, and if you open the deck lid you'll find a rust-free trunk wearing proper spatter-finish paint.
Power comes from an ultra-clean and sweet-running 454 cubic inch V8. Finished in Tuxedo Black with a set of chrome valve covers that are always right on a big block Chevy, it definitely has a performance look. A stock intake manifold with a big Quadrajet 4-barrel carb help build horsepower, and in the lightweight Camaro, the big hit of torque is a real thrill every single time. There's also a chromed alternator for added spark and a big radiator up front that keeps the whole show nice and cool. The aforementioned TH400 3-speed automatic feeds a 12-bolt rear end and a set of stock-style exhaust headers feed a fresh dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers that sounds downright nasty. Clean floors, a recent gas tank, and the perfect stance all add up to a car that's going to get a lot of attention. Classic Rallye wheels wear 235/60/15 front and 255/60/15 rear Cooper Cobra white-letter performance radials that totally fill the fenders.
Nicely built, clean, and a lot of fun to drive, this is an awesome Camaro with great colors and just a bit of attitude. Call today!
