"1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS
RS on Camaro speak stands for Rally Sport which is available on all trim levels. It includes hidden headlights, and reverse lights below the bumper, as well as other trim options that could be had. It was basically an appearance package, although you could have an RS/SS package which included a more powerful engine and the trimmings of an RS.
For consignment a full frame off restoration on the Camaro RS from 1967. This particular consignment is simply a gorgeous example which was painstakingly restored down to every detail. A showroom plus example gracing our hallowed classic car halls here at Classic Auto Mall, and this one will grab your attention if you even are remotely a Camaro aficionado.
With only 118 miles clocked since the rebuild, we could be on a Chevrolet dealer showroom, and right back to 1967. Bathed in a really well done Silverish Gray which is miles deep, it sports painted on black stripes which run from bow to stern. Speaking of the bow, the first feature is the hide away headlights, which work flawlessly, and are aligned with the remainder of the grille. A pristine simple chromed bumper frames the lower grille, and a black spoiler brings up the bottom. Moving up the hood we have a reverse scoop molded into the hood, perfect window trimmings, and swooping wheel well surrounds in chrome. A lower stainless rocker is present and has just a smidge of alignment issue on the passenger's door. Bringing up the rear another striped spoiler, horizontal bar taillights, and the backup lights below a mirror like simple rear bumper. 15-inch rally wheels are covering raised white letter Goodrich T/A radials on all 4 corners.
When this consigner states full off restoration he means it seriously, as a flip of the doors and we are greeted with black vinyl door panels accented by Silverish Gray body matching door sills and near perfect cranks and handles. Flanking the center hump are dual low back buckets in black vinyl with tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters. A rear bench is shoehorned into the back and sports the same pattern as the buckets up front. Sitting in the middle of the hump is a ""T"" handled Hurst shifter. Moving to the dash, we note dual deep embedded round gauges that use the angle of the dash to appear even deeper and shade the gauges for great driver visibility even in sunny weather. The dash does await your choice of a sound system which can easily be installed to make the dash seamless. Black carpet that appears new, unfaded, and unstained floods the floors, and a tight black headliner hovers above this beautiful near showroom interior.
As with the rest of the car the engine bay sings with chrome and shines to the tune of a consigner stated 383ci V8. An included dyno sheet shows this mill pumps out 372.9 horses at its peak. It is topped with a Quickfuel 4-barrel carburetor, has headers, and a 5-speed manual Tremec transmission which pushes power rearward to a 10-bolt rear. All else is stainless woven hoses, polished master cylinder, and some polished filter vented valve covers. This all wraps around an orange engine block which will denote Chevrolet.
Well, well, and all is definitely well underneath with a fully restored undercarriage. No rust, just pure black floor pans, steel, rockers, and unibody which is tight as a drum. 3-inch stainless Flowmaster exhaust is snaking its way rearward, right by independent coil springs up front and leaf springs with traction bars on the rear. It also passes mightily by disc brakes up front and drums one the rear.
After a crank and fire up, we had to be patient for this car to fully warm up prior to moving forward, or it will be lesson in futility in that it runs rough until it warms up. BUT after that the test track called up and said no one is home so c'mon down and run that RS through its paces. Which me and my decoder/test driver/crash test genius(sic) did willingly. We noticed the heater blower does not work, but the engine does...swimmingly with awesome acceleration, great melodious exhaust sound from those 3-inch pipes, and it handles well to boot. Brakes were good, and it likes to take turns fast just FYI! It's like driving a new car with the awesome interior.
Frame off always makes me salivate like a Pavlov dog, and this car was no exception, especially since this year Camaro turns my screws. This car did not disappoint. Tasteful color, awesome paint job, snappy bling under the hood, and a comfy interior...get down to Morgantown PA, FAST, because this will fly off the shelf, it's that great of an example. Go ahead, eat a Mustang for lunch.
