Is a 1967 250 six cylinder worth much? Or salvage it?

The six banger that was original in my 67 conv. was pulled to install a big block. I know Ill never put it back in. I need to clear space in my garage. Should I junk it or is it worth something? Thanks 70,000 mile motor.

67 rs/ss conv. 396/325hp

Re: Is a 1967 250 six cylinder forth much? Or salvage it?

There is a six cylinder group out there. Original 6s with their born with engines can sell for up to $30k. I still have mine from a 68 convertible. The guy pro toured the car and put $45 total into it. Looks great. He cant get $20 for the car. If you dont plan on selling car, I d keep it for when you do and then advertise it with original engine. The big block craze is for only some people. There are some who just like cruising with a good , low sounding engine and great MPG without putting in a 6sp. One of my best summers is with the 6 banger. And there are ways to spice it up too! They actually have more torque than the factory V8s!! So there still good for a burn out! Id hang on to it. Im waiting for the guy who bought my car to come ask me for the 6, or sell the car and go offer it to the buyer!

Cool Re: Is a 1967 250 six cylinder forth much? Or salvage it?

The In-Line 6s are liked by many for different reasons.
I've never had one sitting around very long once I put the word out to the classic truck and rodders groups around here.

At least try an ad on the local 'Craigslist' site(s) with the search terms 'truck' - 'camaro' 'hotrod' 'classic' and 'stovebolt' - I bet you get more than a couple bites

Price should be very reasonable - unless you want to keep it around longer ...
The buyer's incentive is to get a running complete engine for a price well below he could fix his or source one from a rebuilder in most cases.

1968 Convertible
Some trucks
Other V8 things - some of which float
Other V6 things - none of which float
Oh yeah, and 1 "Straight-Six" ...

If a man says something in the garage - and his wife can't hear him - is he still wrong !!!

I have a 6er. Sell it for a lot of money to help bring up the value of my 68! You, sir, can help all of us who own 6 bangers!

Marty: $30k for a 6 banger camaro? Really? Somehow I doubt it. 20k is a reasonably high number right now. They bottomed out in Dec/Jan and seem to have gone up a bit.

Ironically I'm watching Mecum on the tube at the moment while I take a mental break from work and there's a 1955 Ford truck with an inline 6. It just sold for 23.5k and it's pristine. Those old trucks go about the same as 1st gens with equivalent equipment.


...and back to work for me!

Please submit info to this forum: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?board=16.0 CRG is not a classified type site but the info will be helpful. You will also see others have a desire for the engines.

Thanks, I kept the 6banger and the the original 3speed manual transmission in the event I'd sell it. Maybe I'll just keep it around. It sure did have some spunk before I took it out. And yes it could burn the tires.

No question, keep it. Verts are still a favoured model out there and as you mentioned the 6 banger had a fair bit of "spunk" to it.

With many pulling 6's out to install 8's, value only goes up.

X2 keep it and if and when you sell you have numbers matching. Just makes the car more valuable then with only the big block. IMHO

6 Cyl. convertibles are relatively rare..Less than 3000 made per year if I'm not mistaken. Hang on to it.
