'67 Coupe Ground Up / Rotisserie Resto --1st-Gen Collection Complete!

So I finally completed my collection of First-Gen Camaros... and picked up a 1967 Coupe project. It's originally a 6 cylinder car, Ermine White with a Red interior. My wife is on board and all for it as long as she gets to drive one of them. AND I still have my other two--> the '68 and the '69. I plan on completing all three as time permits.

It just needs a fender, deck lid and a couple of front tires. This one won't be as bad as your other projects. I always learn something from your projects.

Stay away from photobucket.

She does have a '68 fender, and maybe this was only available at the time.
But she does have vent windows. VIN tag tells the year.
Good luck with her.

It did have some replacement 68 parts tossed onto it to complete it-- yes. But a '67 it 'tis. VIN plate and hidden vins match perfectly and show it's a '67 for sure. Title too...

I already hunted down a nice pair of GM used front and rear bumpers, GM parking lamps, GM RS tail lights. Going the RS route with this one. I also decided to use as many GM USED parts as physically possible with this build-- making it a clean driver that I can enjoy and use without worrying so much. Not going to rechrome any chrome or replace mildly worn parts with repro parts... I want it as original as possible that way. Mild wear on things is fine with me for this one. Should be fun!

Thanks Everett. I believe most of the nose was from a 68. I saw that the side marker light hole was "patched closed" on the driver fender. Lol!

Having fun with this '67 already. Did some more cleaning today. Removed more parts and finally got the pass side door open. Lol! The latch was stuck (broken spring and rusty striker bolt) Ugh... fun times.

Ha-- yes. Thanks man... It will be a challenge for sure. Lots to do on this one too... floors, quarters, outer rockers, drip rails, firewall, outer + inner wheel wells, trunk drop offs, cross rail, maybe one or two more parts... I'm sure. Just happy to find one today at a reasonable price. Completed the trifecta--finally!

Re: '67 Coupe Ground Up / Rotisserie Resto --1st-Gen Collection Comple

Been on a mission lately and scooping up parts+goodies to restore the '67 build. Making it an RS LS5.3 V8 RestoDriver--using all used GM parts when possible. Let's see how it goes.

Hey Terry!!!! Great to hear from ya... Hope all is well old buddy!

I just got the title in my name for the '67 and now I'm cleared to begin. Already started collecting parts for it. Just found some more goodies today too. I'm stopping at 3 first-gens-- I promise. But will I ever be finished????

Re: '67 Coupe Ground Up / Rotisserie Resto --1st-Gen Collection Comple

To free up my trailer and get the '67 on the ground finally (no spare time lately)... I bought some 10" swivel casters and tacked them in place on the subframe temporarily. Now I can use my trailer again.

Re: '67 Coupe Ground Up / Rotisserie Resto --1st-Gen Collection Comple

Hello Todd, looks like a lot of work ahead; have to give you credit for working this hard to build a car! Makes me worry this is what is left to choose from for projects I may have pieces i was throwing away you might want. I have 2 beat up fenders that are not rusty on the bottom. I was thinking i would cut them up for patches if someone wanted to patch a original fender. In the west the bottom of fenders rust from the inside out from leaves falling down the cowl, these are not and i offer them free. Patch pieces i mean whole fender is not worthy. I am working on 2 67's right now and starting to get some extra stuff. I'm in CA but light wt items ship easy. Last week on CL in LA was an what looked OEM front clip for 900 bucks. I almost bought it just because but it was not RS and both my cars are RS.
