This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS provides a refreshing lesson in the value and irreplaceable nature of originality. While other coupes from this highly desired year have been pulled apart and made into something entirely different, this inaugural Camaro coupe has spent over a half-century looking exactly like the day it did when it was born, and is now one of the cleanest, original F-bodies you'll ever find. With extremely low ownership (with receipts and provenance spelling out only three owners .....
since new) and a numbers matching drivetrain from end-to-end, this is lifelong Georgia Camaro is the type of rarified classic car we don't often come across, and that's exactly why we love it.

It's hard to resist a Camaro still painted in its original shade of Code F Deepwater Blue. It's a gorgeous, high impact color that demands your attention, and it's the perfect complement to the original 1st generation bodywork. This one hasn't been made into something it is not, but it rather shows off the sleek 1st generation lines that GM was so proud of, without any flashy distraction. A white 'bumble bee' nose stripe and RS hidden highlights are factory-spec accessories that add a touch of aggressiveness, but there's no cowl hood, no decklid spoiler, or even any unnecessary badging " just pure GM design on full parade, as stock as can be. Repainted a few years ago to a very strong, top driver-quality standard, it still shows incredibly well today, albeit with a couple minor signs of use in a small, isolated area or two. Regardless, the car still presents very well in person (our pictures are very accurate), and when you consider the originality of the sheetmetal, and the overall stance and appearance is like a time capsule that reminds you of those days when you saw your first Camaro. It ignited something in you, because the styling was more aggressive, but just as affordable as the Mustang. This is the model that truly started the pony car wars. All the chrome and brightwork is likely original too, and the bumpers are in particularly good condition (although the rear bumper does have some visible, light scratching), and even the glass all around the car is believed to be factory-issued. How cool is that?!

The original-looking interior was always Code 765Z ""black standard buckets"", and it was correctly restored with very clean and tidy seat covers, door panels, plush carpets, and a taut headliner above. A factory center console is part of the package, as is the expansive black dash that's free of cracks or any faded, blemished areas, and the original design is very sporty and a perfect complement to the light-colored bodywork. But this sea of black inside is not alone, with white stripes on the seats and chrome accents found throughout the interior, including the Camaro nameplates on the door panels and the bright trim contrasts in the dash. The 1967 Camaro was the only year that offered vent windows, and simply cracking those open on each side when you're out cruising make the cabin very comfortable in lieu of air conditioning, and if you ever drive this beaty in the winter the heater/defrost unit will keep you warm. Options are fairly scarce otherwise, although a retro-style AM/FM/Cassette player was installed for entertainment, and the center console houses a chrome automatic shifter that matches the black-and-chrome, RS-spec three-spoke steering wheel at the helm of the cockpit. All the dark materials are still rich, supple, and supremely comfortable, and even the rear seat looks almost completely untouched " another testament to conscientious low ownership and their commitment to the overall preservation of originality. Out back, the trunk was neatly finished with gray spatter paint and a reproduction plaid mat, and even with the spare tire and jack set mounted up top, there's still plenty of space back there for all your car show goodies.

Under the hood is where this Camaro continues to show its personality, even after 50+ years. The previous owners resisted fitting a crate motor or some boat-anchor big block, and instead, the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8 is still in place. Factory-rated at 210 horsepower, it's a more-than-capable runner with plenty of pop inside the relatively lightweight Camaro, with great responsiveness up-and-down the throttle. Everything is believed to be the original equipment, including the heads, the 2-barrel carburetor, and even the intake, and with fresh Chevy Orange enamel on the block and valve covers, it looks pretty much just like it did way back in 1967. That includes the black, snorkeled air cleaner complete with the requisite '327' decals, and even the reproduction battery, hoses, and plumbing all look right and present incredibly clean. A Powerglide 2-speed automatic transmission shifts through gears effortlessly, and the stock suspension still feels great thanks to the miniscule amount of time this car's been on the road. It's such a smooth runner that it offers a kind of comfort not seen in many first-generation Camaros today. Power steering and power front disc brakes add to the pleasurable driving experience, and the upgraded Flowmaster dual exhaust system below adds a throaty soundtrack that's the perfect complement to this Camaro's killer good looks. Flashy Rally wheels with bright beauty rings and Bowtie hubcaps are the right choice on such an original car, and they come wrapped with staggered 215/60/15 front and 235/60/15 rear blackwall radials that add a touch of aggressiveness.

Documented with its original Protect-O-Plate warranty card and maintenance plan, original bill of sale, original dealer invoice, owner's manual, and verifiably title docs to back up the pedigree, this beautifully restored, low ownership Camaro is truly a special find. Call today!
