1967 CHEVROLET CAMARO SS 396c. i. ~ - SUMMARY
Today. the market seems to be flooded with over-restored first generation Camaros that are offered at astronomical prices. This high performance big block Camaro is realistically priced and has recently received considerable mechanical attention to make it a strong driver quality car with room for improvement or complete restoration. It would be the ideal candidate for a classic muscle car to drive and enjoy while personalizing the car to your liking. adding modifications. and addressing some of the needs that exist on most Muscle cars of the era.
The Camaro has been in California for its entire life and the presence of California black & gold license plate documents this fact. The original plate carries the correct sequence of "USA902” and has been on the car since it was delivered new in 1967. Further documentation comes in the form of the California registration that indicates "Delivered in 1967” supporting the car's lifelong existence in this dry state. In the 2005 time frame. the car was stored for a few years. An enthusiast sourced the car and. at that time. invested a considerable sum to address the car's mechanical and cosmetic needs including the professional installation of a rebuilt big block Chevrolet engine that was mated to the cars factory 4-speed transmission. It is believed that posi-traction was added at that time along with a number of other repairs to the car's major mechanical components. Since that time. the car has been used as an occasional car with the current owner invested a considerable sum to address a variety of mechanical issues and bring the car into good mechanical condition.
Mechanically. the car runs very strong and has the "tree-stump pulling” torque of a powerful high displacement V8 engine. The car shifts well with good synchros. no clutch slippage and no unusual noises from the drive-line components. The car is fitted with power steering and a smaller steering wheel with a Chevrolet horn hub. The power brakes are excellent with front discs that stop the car straight and sure. The emergency brake is fully functional.
A spirited drive in the Camaro brings back memories of why the mid to late 60's were referred to as the Muscle Car era. This car is very fast and belongs in the hands of an experienced. capable driver. who appreciates its performance. While we don't have details as to when the engine was rebuilt. it performs like an engine that is relatively fresh. The car runs very well with a great exhaust note from the upgraded dual Flowmaster style system. The Camaro runs cool even in our very warm climate. does not smoke. and is free from significant oil or other fluids leaking.
This particular car will definitely appeal to the muscle car / Camaro enthusiast whose interests are more performance oriented. In the most positive sense. this car epitomizes the no frills. higher performance 60's muscle cars that were not weighted down with heavy unnecessary options like air conditioning. power windows. etc. After all. performance was the name in the 1960's and. in our humble opinion. this Camaro has just the right options (refer to The Numbers Decoded. below).

When the Mustang sold 100. 00 units in the first six months. and almost half a million the first year. GM took an interest. The responsibility for GM's Mustang fighter was given to the GM Design Center's Chevrolet Studio under the direction of Henry C. Haga. Interior design was directed by George Angersbach. who had been heavily involved in the design of the Corvette. Corvair. and the Chevy II. which became the Nova in 1968. It has long been a misconception that the '67 Camaro was designed from Chevy II components when actually it was the other way around. The Chevy II was to be all new for '68 and it shared many parts with the '67 Camaro. but this did lead to compromises in the design. most notably the cowl height and hood length.
One unique feature was the decision to use a front sub-frame isolated with rubber "biscuits" in combination with the unit body construction of the rest of the car. a technique that had been used on several European cars. including many Mercedes-Benz models. This combined the best of both worlds. A larger interior and more luggage space than was possible with a traditional frame and at the same time a quieter. smoother ride than a full Uni-body car delivered.
The designers did mock-ups of many different models. including a two-seat roadster. a fastback. and a station wagon. GM was trying to keep the cost as low as possible. however. to compete with the Mustang. they decided to stick with just two models. a coupe and a convertible.
The Camaro was to be offered with a wide variety of power plants. ranging from a 230 cubic inch six cylinder to a 327 V8. In addition. a new engine displacement was created just for the Camaro. a 350 cubic inch V8 rated at 295 horsepower.
As the launch date neared. the car still had no name. It had been called various names by GM and the press. including Nova. Panther. Chaparral. and Wildcat (later used by Buick). It is rumored that Chevy also considered using the letters "GM" in the name. and came up with G-Mini. which evolved into GeMini. and finally Gemini. General Motors Headquarters supposedly killed that name. because they didn't want the letters "GM" used in case the car was a failure.
Finally. the car was introduced to the press as the Camaro. considered to be a good name because nobody knew what it meant. Chevrolet claimed it was taken from an old French dictionary showing that the word meant "friend" or "companion". but CAMARO found an alternate meaning in an old Spanish dictionary - "a small. shrimp-like creature". The automotive press had a good laugh and an even bigger one when one journalist found yet another meaning…"loose bowels". It didn't take long for the laughter to stop after the introduction of the stunning 1967 Camaro. Of course. the last laugh was had by Chevrolet when the Camaro went on. in later years. to become one of the all-time classic muscle cars.
