SUMMARY

This early production Camaro has been carefully restored and is undoubtedly show-quality.

DESCRIPTION

  • An early, first-generation car built in December 1966 for the 1967 Model Year
  • Imported into the UK from California in 2015 and then subject to a full bare-metal, nut and bolt rebuild
  • Fitted with new floor pans and boot floor, all the other panels are original
  • Superbly refinished in its original 1967 Emerald Turquoise Poly (KK) 
  • The 327ci V8 was fully rebuilt with new pistons, bearings, cam, cam followers and a new carb 
  • 'Powerglide' transmission fully rebuilt along with the suspension and braking system
  • The interior has also been totally refreshed with new seat covers, door cards, headliner and a carpet set
  • Only genuine Camaro parts were used sourced from a renowned Camaro specialist in Florida
  • Fitted with a beautiful set of aftermarket alloy wheels which is the only non-standard upgrade on the car
  • One of the first off the line in late 1966, one of the very earliest survivors and very, very, rare indeed 
  • Guided very sensibly, this stunning alternative to the Mustang is sure to generate good interest
