1967 Chevrolet Camaro The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro is an American pony car which appeared in Chevrolet dealerships on September 29,1966 for the 1967 model year on a brand-new rear wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as a 2-door, 2 plus 2 seater.  The RS was an appearance package that included hidden headlights, revised tail lights with back-up lights under the rear bumper, RS badging, and exterior bright trim.  It was available on any model. For consignment, a real gem with the first generation Camaro which our consigner has owned since 1991.  Since that time, he\'s performed a frame off rebuild turning this once mild mannered street car into a full out strip bruiser.  Bathed it in black cherry, some fuchsia flames, a fiberglass front end, added in a minimalistic but effective interior, and plopped a 406ci V8 under the hood to keep this skate running low 10 second passes at 130+mph.  Read on and you too will be impressed by this multiple time Super Chevy show winner and 1999 track champion at Maple Grove Raceway, and if you are you\'d better get your butt in here because these don\'t last long in our halls.  Gone like a freight train, gone like yesterday... Exterior With it\'s pony car long front and short rear deck we can note all straight rust free steel, and it\'s all bathed in the deep end of the pool black cherry with fuchsia flames licking back from the grille.  A stock Camaro with hidden headlights, small thin bumpers, hidden lamps behind the center of the grille, and chromed trimmings.  All of this presents with some inclusions in the finish, runs, chips, cracking, and chips missing from the fiberglass add-ons.  The gaps, while nice on the steel, tend to go awry on the fiberglass panels which include the reverse scooped hood and fenders which are attached with Dzus fasteners.  Accenting this straight body is nice chrome and clean window trimmings and a stock Camaro tail lights setup is seen as is the centrally located body matching gas filler cap in the center of the rear and also the battery kill switch.  15 Weld Prostar wheels are wrapped in skinny 5.50-15 rubber up front and sticky 28.5x12.50-15 Phoenix drag sticks.  Telling\' ya...Gone like a soldier in the Civil war, Bang, Bang... InteriorStripped of its original interior, it now has a full roll cage which protects high backed black vinyl bolstered racing seats in bucket form.  The lower rear seating has been removed but the rear upper cushion remains neatly installed.  The racing seats have a 5-point harness buckle up system.  These buckets flank a B&M racing shifter sitting on the hump, and are bordered by slightly faded black carpet.  Door panels have been modified with their smooth  black vinyl panels, door pulls and cranks, with Camaro badging.  Looking towards the dash, the 2 deep dish round gauges are there but are blocked by a pair of AutoMeter gauges and a huge tachometer sits atop the black padded topper.  Ignition and other knobs still exist in the angled dash which is in front of a lightweight spoked leather covered steering wheel.  In the center, the original panel retains the heater slides but the radio location now houses a panel with numerous toggles and more auxiliary gauges are below.  Looking under the trunk lid we note a racing fuel cell, the battery, and twin stainless steel boxes. Drivetrain Under the hood and my partner in crime need to slap me as I was totally hypnotized by the machinist\'s dream I couldn\'t take my eyes off of!  What did I behold but a 406ci V8 capable of a consignor stated 700hp.  It is fed by a Barry Grant 4-barrel carburetor and is topped with a pair of aluminum cylinder heads.  Plenty of polished bolt ons, shiny headers, MSD ignition, and an electric water pump are noted.  On the back, a built Powerglide 2-speed automatic with a 4500rpm stall converter.  Way back to spin the rear tires is a 12-bolt Posi rear axle that handles all that power! Undercarriage All rust free with some light
