Newbe owner of 67

Well I did it, I jumped off the deep end and bought a 67 convertible for my wife. She has always wanted a 1st gen and I found this one reasonable. Iím and engineer by profession but have always enjoyed working on cars and have been building engines since I was in my early teens, know I have a few years of building engines and doing general repairs on cars ( more than 25 years). Iíve had several classic and always got them to the primer stage before selling for money for college. Weíll this one will not get sold. Someone started the car and I have to say they bought a lot of pieces but installed nothing. The floors need replaced, which I have purchased the pans for them as well as a new floor support. Quarters are good, some rust in near the door, and the driverís door has rusted out on the skin. The trunk is solid except for two spots above the muffler that have pin rust wholes I plan on re-skinning it. It was originally a black car, red deluxe interior with a white top. I was informed by the wife last night that it will be blue, with blue interior. It has a brand new black power top, I guess that will change to white too, but what a cool car to have. Iíll post some questions about welding in another post. So how do I post a photo of the 67?

Re: Newbe owner of 67

WELCOME.......
You got the best year and a convert to boot........
Easiest way to post pics is to upload them to a host site such as cardomain, webshots, photobucket, etc. Then you can paste a direct link to a full size pic directly into the post. Please keep the pixel count on your camara low or crop them before posting. If they get bigger than our screens then we have to scroll side to side to take it all in.
Can't wait for pics....

Re: Newbe owner of 67

Looks good iceman! I have a 67 vert aswell. One spot you should look at during body work ( since you have to do the top ) Is where the top meets the trunk. Above the gutter. I caught mine. If I had someone do the top I may not have ever known it needed work. Save all paperwork from within the car! Enjoy Great project

How do you get the SS trim off around the top?

There are 6 phillips head screws, 3 on each piece.
They are on the underside of the trim and hard to get at.
Feel around for them, they are located at the ends and middle (corner) of each piece.

On another note, I love blue Camaros too, but they are very common.
The original Black exterior/Red deluxe interior is a fantastic combination you do not see at every car show. I encourage you to look at another Camaro in that combo before switching colors.

I agree... I'm not a Red on Black fan, but the Black on Red isn't common and is a head turner. My dad bought a 68 C10 new that was Black on Red and it was really sharp...
Blue is nice too.........here's a pic of my 88 IROC I just had painted 08 Corvette Jetstream Blue Metallic...

Ill have to agree too! lots of blue camaros around.. the Black with Red interior is the way to go... see if you can talk her into it.. then you can save money and keep the new black top on it.

I'm going to try! That is all new red interior, so we can keep that too! We have a black truck, black expedition, black blazer. So she doesn't want a black camaro, so my solution is sell or trade the others since they ain't classics, so they can be other colors! But then again it is hers. By the way I love the colors on yours!

I ran across this nice Black/Red 69 and thought you might like to see it.
Not a 67 and not a convertible, but you can see how well the combo goes together.
