My 67 Camaro Build

i started this build on another site but thought it would be better to have it here and share my ideas .
this project started about 4 months ago and i have been going at pretty hard for a while , this car turned out to have a lot of rust so one thing lead to another and the more i get into it the more i want to do .
now it is ending up being more of a race car that i will be doing a lot of auto cross in and road events .
so off we go ! i will post some of the first few and add as i go .
this is when i first brought it home and started tear down ,

Re: My 67 Camaro Build

started by removing the floor and replacing the inner rockers .

moving on to the trunk i found a lot of rust covered up by fiberglass .
so the whole trunk was removed and frame rails .


All gone

Re: My 67 Camaro Build

Re: My 67 Camaro Build

Hey Dave
What factored into the 13" move, why 13?

67RSSS......owned since 69. A basket case for most of it.
