Congrats to both parties on completing the deal earlier today.

Stinging from the massive sales success of Ford’s Mustang, Chevrolet introduced its entrant to the newly-created Pony Car segment, the Camaro, in the fall of 1966 as a 1967 model. Camaros rode on GM’s new rear-wheel-drive, semi-unibody, Nova-derived, F-Body platform. Copying Mustang’s playbook, Chevrolet offered a staggering eighty factory- and forty dealer-installed options available across four trim packages: Base, Rally Sport (“RS”), Super Sport (“SS”), and Z/28.
Selecting the Super Sport (“SS”) package provided the buyer an L48 code, four-barrel-carburetor topped, 350 cubic inch V8 producing 295 brake horsepower at 4800 rpm and 380 foot-pounds of torque at 3200 rpm. Backing that V8 is a Muncie M20 4-Speed manual. Trim-wise, the SS featured non-functional air inlets on the hood, special striping, and SS badging on the grille, front fenders, gas cap, and horn button.
The 1967 Camaro SS350 offered for sale at auction here, is an early build example produced during the second week of November 1966 in Chevrolet’s Van Nuys, California plant. Less than two weeks later, the original owner took delivery of this Camaro at their local San Francisco dealership.
The original selected Mountain Green for the new Camaro’s exterior color combined with a deluxe black vinyl interior. The owner upgraded the powertrain with power steering.
Bill, the fourth caretaker and seller of this low mileage 1967 Camaro SS350, purchased the car fifteen years ago. He indicates that his number-matching Camaro received one quality repaint approximately twenty years ago. Every component, save for the alternator, is correctly date-coded. While all of the glass has been replaced, each piece was correctly etched. This 1967 Camaro SS350 Sport Coupe even features its original matching date code steel wheels and “Poverty” style hub caps shod with period-correct bias-ply “Red Line tires. For those times when you just want to cruise in this Camaro, a second set of Rally wheels shod with modern radials are included in the sale and factored into the seller’s reserve price.
While the odometer shows only 16,731, the seller is quick to point out that he does not have proof that is the true mileage. That said, he can state that the numbers-matching power train has never been disassembled.
In addition to the original Protect-O-Plate and Warranty Booklet, this California-sold Camaro still has its original smog pump and related emission controls in place. The only original components changed in the interior include the carpet and clock. While the original AM radio resides in the dashboard, this Camaro features a hidden aftermarket stereo.
As far as the undercarriage, this 1967 Camaro relies on its original drum brake system for stopping power. In a nod to modern ride technology, this Camaro SS350 features Koni adjustable shocks all around. During the restoration, the subframe received powder coating for long-term protection and preservation while the original undercoating applied in 1966 was touched with paint for better appearance. While stock in appearance, the exhaust system is made from stainless steel for longevity.
Bill has entered and won numerous awards all over California with this 1967 Camaro SS350 Sport Coupe. Now relocated in Colorado, Bill requested our assistance finding the next caretaker in this Camaro’s journey.
