Well, my 19 year old daughter has been looking for a 67 Camaro project for us to do together and she finally found one.

It has solid bones but is going to need floors, quarters and outer rockers.

I made her restore a family vehicle earlier this year to get experience. So, she replaced rockers, primed and painted an 04 Jeep.

So, she has been hunting eBay and craigslist for a car and she found one last week.

67 RS with 2L option. It also has A/C and is marina blue with bright blue deluxe interior.

It came with a M20, 327 4bbl and 12 bolt rear end.

Not the original drivetrain but perfect for this car.

My wife bought me my own rotisserie so I don’t have to borrow one for this project.

Very nice !!! For both of you, plus Mom.
Take plenty of pictures during disassembly. they will help when going back together as we don't always remember - Over 40 Thing kicks in a lot.

Great advice! I have 2 other builds on this site. My L78 build and My 67 Restonod build.

Congratulations one finding the right car... but more so, congratulations for having a daughter that is willing to work on a project like this. You won't have to worry about many of her friends wanting to drive the car with a clutch pedal, either. Enjoy the trip and keep us posted.

Yes...clutch is the anti-theft system for millennials.

Ok...its been a few weeks but we have been making progress. We are actually building a jig we found in this forum and making some changes so it can be disassembled for stowage.

Here are some pics of us removing the subframe and my daughter tacking in the main structure of the jig.

That's super cool that your daughter is doing all this work. She'll never part with that car once it finished. Great memories!

Definitely cool the both of you are doing this together. I'm definitely going to show this to my youngest daughter. Maybe when I drag the firebird project out this Fall she'll be inspired to help.

We are having a great time with this and she is putting a lot of effort into it. We should have the jig completed today. We want to get the body on it this weekend.

I have her putting a pets list together of what we need, when we need it and what we can sell. It’s her money ( well not all hers) so, she is being quite cost conscious.

We are taking tons of pics.
