Chevrolet’s answer to the Ford Mustang came in the form of the Camaro.  Just like Ford’s pony car, the Camaro could be ordered with a variety of trim packages such as the Rally Sport (“RS”) appearance package featured on this restored red-over-black 1967 example listed on Craigslist in Hopewell Junction, New York with an asking price of $29,900.  Checking the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms this private seller has his Camaro priced between the #2 “Excellent” appraisal of $32,000 and the #3 “Good” estimate of #23,700.  We’re not factoring a 20% premium for the RS package as the pictures of the car show this to have SS trim as well.  Since the seller is not calling this part out, we’re assuming this car is an RS/SS clone. Please note that you should only factor in that premium if the seller can provide proof his Camaro is a true RS and not simply upgraded during restoration.

Launched in the fall of 1966 as a ’67 model,  Chevrolet launched its new Camaro with a staggering amount of nearly 80 factory- and 40 dealer-installed options across Base, RS, SS, and Z/28 trim levels.  The new F-Body shared the innovative from subframe semi-unibody design with the 1968 Chevy II Nova.  The RS was an appearance package that included hidden headlights, revised taillights with back-up lights under the rear bumper, RS badging, and exterior bright trim. It was available as a trim upgrade on any model.

Here’s a nearly 20-minute long dealer promo film detailing the launch of the ’67 Camaro.

A pretty first-year Camaro with mild engine upgrades and the benefit of power steering and power brakes, this appears to be a nice driver quality clone car you can have fun cruising in.  Our understanding is that these first-generation Camaros are hard to document with what options they came equipped with (if we are wrong about this please comment below on how to tell) so we’re going by the assumption is a clone SS/RS example and not a real deal car.  The trim upgrades always looked nice on these cars so no harm no foul as long as you continue to present it as a clone car.  Good luck with the purchase!
