This red-hot 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS is for the guy or gal who likes an aggressive approach where the hardware is effective but the look is classic and not over-wrought
With a 396 big-block V8 under the hood, a quick-shifting 4-speed manual managing the gears, a really nice Deluxe interior, and plenty of attitude, you can have a whole lot of fun with this car without sweating the little stuff.
The cool thing about first-generation Camaros is that they can be anything from a grocery getter to a fire-breathing road course monster. Most of them fall in the middle, with cars like this slick Bolero Red coupe making up a vast majority of the F-bodies you’ll see at shows and cruise nights around the country. It’s really nice, too, with a great, top driver-quality paint job laid down over laser-straight sheetmetal by professionals that really knew what they were doing. They added an SS hood and chin spoiler up front, which should have been standard equipment because they really help set the muscle-car tone up front, and with only minor imperfections to report along with very little signs of use accrued since the build, this Camaro is a lock to dominate at you local car show. It’s not perfect but has off-the-charts curb appeal, and with a professional buff-and-wax over a weekend, this F-body could be a real show-stopper. A proper blacked-out SS grille combines with the badges on the front fenders to make it impossible to mistake this Camaro for anything else on the road, and the painted-on white ‘bumble bee’ stripe on the nose breaks up the red paint just enough, while the ducktail spoiler and black tail panel out back adds an extra layer of aggressiveness. Chrome and bright trim is in great shape because it’s all new or restored, and I, for one, am a huge fan of the front vent windows, which disappeared after 1967 but make a big difference in interior comfort.
The black Deluxe interior is simply gorgeous and offers a few choice upgrades that make this an awesome long-distance hauler. It features period-perfect bucket seats wrapped in black vinyl upholstery off-set with white stripes, a matching rear seat, matching black door panels, and plush black carpets protected with SS-embroidered floormats that all work together to deliver a killer modern look inside this comfortable cabin. The chrome Hurst 4-speed shifter is topped by a cue ball knob and is the highlight of the interior, practically taunting the driver to hammer through some gears, and the black dash features some nice chrome accents that really help it pop. Factory gauges, including an optional tachometer, look wicked ahead of the driver’s seat, and they come augmented with a trio of auxiliary units that were neatly installed under the dash and keep a closer eye on the big block up ahead. This car is all about the ‘go-fast’ capabilities of a vintage F-body so the list of amenities isn’t long, but you do get a sporty SS steering wheel, seatbelt up front, and a Sony AM/FM/Cassette player that was installed in the factory dash slot. The rear seat looks almost new and the spacious trunk comes properly outfitted with a plaid mat and plaid cover on the spare tire.
One glance under the hood will tell you where all the money was spent, where a big block motor from a Chevelle was swapped-in. It’s a period-correct 396 V8 with a host of upgrades designed to make it fast, fun, and reliable. There’s a big Holley 4-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake manifold, an MSD ignition, and long-tube headers, all punctuated by bright pieces like the chrome valve covers and matching air cleaner. A retro-style Delco battery and chrome alternator ensure reliability on the road and there’s a big radiator up front that keeps the whole show nice and cool. Things like power front disc brakes, a Hotchkiss sway bar up front, subframe connector, and newer shocks out back were all designed to make this vintage Camaro feel a lot more contemporary, and the 4-speed manual transmission that spins the heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end means you can really put this Camaro through its paces without worry. Long-tube headers feed a great-sounding H-pipe dual exhaust system and the stance is exactly right thanks to slick Rally wheels wrapped in period-perfect F70-14 Goodyear Wide Tread white-letter tires.
A fantastic build with a lot of great features, this dialed-in Camaro gets almost everything right and delivers the driving experience you’ve always wanted from your vintage F-body.
