This 1967 Camaro sits lower and undoubtedly goes faster than Chevrolet intended. Over $40k was put into the car, and the seller states the “majority of the money was spent on the drivetrain.” A provided parts list certainly shows it, including a modified LS1 and T56 6-speed, a custom steel driveshaft, and a 4.11-geared 12-bolt rear end.
The seller claims 600 hp and 26 mpg, which almost sounds too good to be true, but it’s probably right on. Buyers better hope the mileage is that good, because with a 12-gallon fuel cell fed through -8 AN steel-braided lines, there will be plenty of stops for $4.00-plus gasoline.
Additional parts that still need to be installed include a new 7-inch brake booster (hey, it might be useful) and fenderwell liners. The speedometer also needs calibration. Hopefully it’s just as easy as it used to be — replacing colored plastic gears.
The paint isn’t perfect. Blemishes and chips are found from tip to tail, but that shouldn’t deter any bidders. This car was meant to be driven. What might be an issue is the rust shown on the driver’s A-pillar and mentioned in the drip rails. The floors have been coated in POR 15, so if done correctly, there shouldn’t be any rust issues there.
It’s important to realize that before you start winning ‘best of’ trophies, the car will need a repaint. Even then, I wouldn’t count on many outside of a hot rod show with all of the modifications made.
