It's no rebadged version of a lesser specimen. This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS is the real deal and comes by its increasingly rare, dual designation status honestly, with no aftermarket intervention needed. It features a thoroughly authentic appearance, with an exterior dressed with signature striping and factory-issue add-ons to denote its special standing and it harbors strong running power with some nice upgrades under its hood.
First generation Camaros were relatively late-arriving participants in the muscle car wars of the '60s, but with their low stances and wide tracks accompanying the tried and true long hood/short deck lid model, their impact was both immediate and substantial. The Butternut Yellow paint this Chevy is now cloaked in was a coveted selection on the factory color chart during its era, so the factory-correct look it conveys is no accident. Encircled in black, the front grille is in good shape and harbors the signature hidden headlights that were cause alone for many a buyer to spring for the Rally Sport package all those decades ago, while we generally associate the front air dam just below and rear spoiler perched on the deck with the model's Super Sport configuration. Tight, even gaps surround the doors, hood and deck lid - an indication that the body alignment on this vintage Chevy is nice and precise - and the chrome and body on display present consistently well.
Take a glance inside and you'll see a black vinyl interior that's in good order. The front buckets were refurbished a while back, so you won't find any marked traces of wear on their surfaces and the bench seat in back is clean and unmarred. Everything is ready to go inside these doors - the headliner and door panels are still in good condition, as is the dash area, which features an instrument panel's worth of factory gauges that still function as intended and are joined by a trio of aftermarket displays at the front of the center console and a tach perched on the steering column. An aftermarket AM/FM/CD stereo takes the place of the original at the center of the dash and the shifter just below it sits within easy reach, beckoning you to grab ahold and get out on the asphalt. From appearances, it seems one of those often overlooked steps has been taken care of here, as fresh rubber seals surround both the deck lid and doors to keep the elements from intruding.
Underneath the hood, a 355 cubic inch V8 resides between the shock towers, dressed with a pair of chrome valve covers and a chrome air cleaner. It's been armed with an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb and a polished intake manifold and now wears a pair of Pro Comp aluminum heads to maximize its abilities, as well as an electronic ignition for more dependable all-weather performance and easier starts. The engine is running strong and sends a nice, deep note into the aftermarket headers leading to its dual exhausts and pairs with a 4-speed manual transmission to provide the hands on experience a spirited muscle car like this one deserves. Power steering makes this iconic classic easy to maneuver while power brakes that position discs up front, as well as a new master cylinder, equip it with all the stopping ability you'll need. A set of 15"" Rally-style wheels wrapped with BF Goodrich T/A radials provides just the right finishing touch.
