Coverting a 67 6 cylinder camaro to a V8

I just found this website and wanted to ask some of you your opinion on the following. My father and I own a 67 Camaro 6 cyl 3 on the tree with a posi traction rear end. It has around 48,000 original miles and is in beautiful shape. We are the second owner. Should this car be kept in this condition or should it be turned into what it was supposed to be? (I guess you all know how I feel now) Ideally I would like it to me a streetable 350 with a 4 or 5 spd manual and 4 wheel disc brakes. What modifications would need to be done i.e. suspension/ frame/ rearend to make this happen? What is a good source for engines, trannys and parts for this type of conversion? What is a ballpark cost for this type of project? Thank you for any help you can give.

Re: Coverting a 67 6 cylinder camaro to a V8

You're probably going to get a 50/50 response of opinions related to such a conversion. Myself, I hate stripping a numbers matching car even if it is just a 6 cylinder.

But.....here's what you have to think about the most: It's "YOUR" car, and what would make you the happiest, which you've already expressed. If you plan on selling the car eventually, I hate that it's true, but a V8 non-numbers matching car still brings more than a 6 cyl. numbers matching car. If you don't plan on selling it.....well, you're obviously of the mind that you'd enjoy a V8 more than a I6, and I think both of those points answers your question. Don't rely on what WE tell you to do, rely on what your goals for the car are and what's in your heart. It is your car. Good luck, and get us some pics as soon as you can.
