1967 Camaro RS
« on: May 16, 2018, 11:31:39 AM »
Test post to see if I can upload pics from my computer, iPad seems to work fine. This was bought by grandmother brand new at Patterson Chevrolet in SoCal. She then gave it to my mom, and now it's mine. Super fun car to drive.

That is one clean ride and looks great. The size and resolution on these pics is perfect and should load no problem.

Thank you. My grandma had great taste. She also had a '55 Bel Air red/white, wish I had that one too! I'm in northern AZ, but it was a CA car. I still have the original black and yellow plates that were issued for it when it was new. OldnSlo, the color is Marina Blue. The Chevelle's and Vettes had that color option in '67 and I have seen them both at car shows and they both look amazing. I would give my right arm for a '67 Chevelle, best lookin car ever made.

It looks like you just drove it off the showroom floor. Is it original or restored?

Restored, my step-dad didn't take care of it, he drove it into the ground. It was just a rolling shell when I got it, although all the body pieces are original. It had some very minor surface rust, nothing bad at all, nothing cut out and re-welded. We wanted to keep it looking like it was when my grandma had it, save for the cooler wheels and passenger side mirror. All the mechanics were upgraded for safety and fun factor. It was done 21 years ago, next week, and took us about 2 years to complete. We are working on a '64 Nova right now, and have a '57 Bel Air to go through and a '68 Chevy 1 ton. We need a bigger garage!!

Wow, digging the car and the fact that you are a motor head lady.  Haven't met a lot of them over the years. 

Hope you enjoy our little forum.  Most of us have been hanging together for years and it is a friendly place with a whole lot of tool knowledge.  A fair number of inside jokes too so if a comment doesn't make sense, just ask.

That is one sweet ride.

So... small block V8?  Auto or standard?

The original 250 block was cracked so we put in a very mild 327 and a 350 turbo trans, console shift. Eventually, this motor/trans will go into the 57 and we have another 327 that we will build with more umph. The trans will be a 700R4. We were much younger and poorer when we did the first restore and I was only concerned with building a show quality car, not sinking all of our money into performance. We both work part time at an engine machine shop so we can build it up ourselves pretty cheap.
