This 1967 Camaro came in for a light exterior restorations. We performed some light body work, straightened the the front sheet metal aligning the hood and doors for better fitment. We welded the holes for the emblems and moved them to the correct locations and installed the correct ones for this model. The Camaro was resprayed Hugger Orange and the Bumble Bee stripe was changed to gloss black.
The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro appeared in dealerships on September 29, 1966, for the 1967 model year on an all brand new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform and would be available as a 2-door, 2+2 seat, coupe or convertible with a choice of six-cylinder and V8 powerplants. The first-gen Camaro would last up through the 1969 model year.
The Camaro’s standard drivetrain was a 230 cu in (3.8 L) straight-6 engine rated at 140 hp (104 kW) and backed by a Saginaw three-speed manual transmission. There were 8 (in 67), 10 (in 68), and 12 (in 69) different engines available in 67-69 Camaros. And there were several transmission options. A four-speed manual was optional, replacing the base three-speed. The two-speed “Powerglide” automatic transmission was a popular option in 1967 and 1968 until the three-speed “Turbo Hydra-Matic 350” automatic became available starting in 1969. The larger Turbo 400 three-speed automatic was an option on SS396 cars.
