Hello Hello

I'm a 30 year old living in the KC metro. I was given my 1967 Camaro when I was maybe 14 or 15 by my uncle. It was my cousins other car but he was killed by a drunk driver in 1996.

The car is a sport coupe. Has a 327/275 hp from a 67 impala I've been told. I just recently parked it back in my garage after it sat for about 8 years in my grandfathers outbuilding. I'm pretty excited to get it back on the road. Its a pretty fun little weekend cruiser.

Also, this car came with factory air but the compressor is gone. I want to pull the rest of the components and clean up the firewall. Any ideas if something like that has any value?

Thanks all.

Re: Hello Hello

Cody67 - Welcome to Team Camaro. Nice ride:



People are always looking for factory parts, and maybe you really will want to replace the compressor with a modern efficient one and have the valve adjusted for modern gas and have working factory AC?

Re: Hello Hello

Welcome to TC! Looks like a fun project. If it was me I would leave the A/C alone but if you want to take it out save the parts and try not to cut anything. That was the first year and I imagine not a lot are left with factory A/C.

Re: Hello Hello

Sorry to hear about your cousin.
Welcome to TC and good luck with your project.
I have a 68 with factory air that I ripped out and threw in the garbage years ago. Since it was gone, I smoothed out my firewall and now wondering if I should be thinking vintage air system lol.........word of advice: Keep ALL your parts until your project is complete - you never know if you may need something or even possibly change your mind and want your air back in this situation

Re: Hello Hello

Welcome, Cody, from the Beach - the Right Coast.
Sorry to read of your cousin.
Good project and keep a log/album of the things you do with her - reference will be invaluable later in life - when we forget - like over the age of 40...

She's tired:

Re: Hello Hello

She was a tired dog there! Unfortunately she got cancer and had to be put down. Best dog I've ever known.... Absolutely amazing with my kids and was a friend to all. Miss that girl.
