New 67 Camaro owner

Hi,

Bought a 67 Camaro off craigslist. It has been abused extensively and is undergoing a proper restoration. Yes, I own a few Mustangs and have a long history with Ford products. As the restoration of the 67 progresses into the sheetmetal, suspension, interior and engine bay I find a lot of qualities that Ford left out of their vehicles and a few that Chevy could have avoided by looking at a Mustang or two. Gotta hand it to Chevy, they really know how to engineer and build a good car.

67' Camaro
327 ci
3 spd trans
10 bolt rear

soon to be a 327 (freshened up)
700R4 trans
10 bolt rear with a 3.73 gear and disc brakes

Re: New 67 Camaro owner

Looking at the codes on the car and engine, the car was originally gold with a inline 6 cylinder engine, TH350 auto trans, 10 bolt rear with 3.07 gear with standard interior, no options were present. Black standard interior also had a column shift. The 327 in it now came from a 67 Impala SS. The 327 will be freshened up with a nice cam, rebuilt heads and a few performance parts.

Re: New 67 Camaro owner

Welcome, Scott - nice project - congrats.

I figured she was born with L6 because of the L6 fan shroud.
Rear tire is not a problem, - only flat in one place - chrome polish for the hub caps, duct tape for the rest and she's on the road!... LOL

Oh, don't forget the Nu-Finish wax for the paint bringing back the shine...

Re: New 67 Camaro owner

Thank you for the welcome (everyone)!

LOL.. duct tape.. Did just buy a big role of welding wire and a new tank of shielding gas. On a lighter note, found a nickel from 1967 under the shag carpet. Could not find the correct color of yellow dye for the carpet so it had to go!

Cool! You have found her lucky coin - the nickel should be with her at all times!

During rebuild, keep the nickel in site of her.
Once she is back on the road, put nickel back into glovebox.

Yes, I know it reads superstitious, but every vehicle I've had and have now, if I removed the coin, the vehicle ran like crap.
Put the coin back, ran fine.
It's even better if the coin is the same year as she is.
