1967 Camaro Restoration Information

Ground Up Customer Sal’s 1967 Camaro RS/SS

With the Ford Mustang already eating up the new pony car market, Chevrolet announced its rebuttal on September 26th, 1966. Originally named Panther, the Camaro moniker was chosen instead.

Some experts believe the word means “companion” or “friend” but others argue that it simply has no meaning at all. Either way, this new pony car would mark the beginning of a whole new era of American muscle car icons with the introduction of the first generation Camaro.

The 1967 Camaro was available in many different configurations. From a plain Jane sport coupe to asphalt eating Super Sport, there was something for everyone! All 1967 Camaros shared the same body unlike the Chevelle and were available in either coupe or convertible. Buyers could choose from the base model Sport Coupe, drag racing ready Super Sport, or road racing Z/28. The Rally Sport option with hidden headlights could be added as a separate package to any of those models.

Interiors could be optioned with either bucket seats or bench seats and were available in a variety of colors and styles. Standard interiors were available in Black, Light Blue, Red, White, or Gold. Buyers who ordered a deluxe interior received unique door panels and striped Comfortweave seats with color choices of Aqua with Dark Aqua stripe, Black with White stripe, Bright Blue with White stripe, Red with Black stripe, Off-White with Black stripe, or Gold with White stripe.

A fold-down rear seat was available but very rare. An optional console was available with or without gauges on bucket seat cars. The buyer could have ordered a number of different exterior colors including Tuxedo Black, Ermine White, Nantucket Blue, Deepwater Blue, Marina Blue, Granada Gold, Mountain Green, Emerald Turquoise, Tahoe Turquoise, Royal Plum, Madeira Maroon, Bolero Red, Sierra Fawn, Capri Cream, or Butternut Yellow.

To complement the wide variety of available colors were the available drive train combinations that could be opted for on the 67 Camaro. Base power was had by one of two available six-cylinder engines. Buyers who wanted more power could opt for a V8 in either small block or big block form. Manual transmissions were either 3 speeds or 4 speeds. The 2 speed Powerglide was the standard automatic transmission and a 3-speed Turbo Hydramatic was optional for V8.

About 221,000 1967 Camaros were produced, 195,765 coupe, 25,141 convertible, 220,906 total.
