1967 Camaro SS Convertible

1967 Chevrolet Camaro

I purchased this 1967 Camaro SS Convertible from a friend that wasn’t doing anything with it and it seemed like a shame to let such a great car just sit. Now, some 10 years later I still haven’t done anything with it either. The car is an original big block SS Camaro, and I have a renewed commitment to get it back on the road.

Don’t get me wrong, I have been trying to find time to finish my 1985 GMC stepside first, but it’s hard to make headway when you’re a handy person and everyone wants something done.

I have committed to getting these projects done, and have decided the best way to keep things moving is to set aside one day a week and work on them. Wish me luck.

    So, we’re nearly 3 years later. I’m hoping it’s done, any updates?

    Boy do I know exsactly what you’re saying about helping everyone else do their stuff and still have two projects of my own. I also own a camaro that I’m building. And my 79 GMC 1500 4 by 4. Almost got the truck dun and then my camaro engine will be ready next week. Also restoring a 63 ELKY for my brother in law. Getting close to paint on that

    Good luck. That’s a terrific car. I have a 1991 Nissan 240SX with a Toyota 2JZ engine swap, I need to get running. I really wish it was running now, as my daily has broke down for the past two weeks due to a blown head gasket. I swapped a newer engine into my daily, and haven’t been able to get it started just yet. I’ve learned my lesson. I need two running cars at all times!

    Best of luck to you Hector on your restoration. I purchase a 1959 Lincoln Mark IV from the original owner back in 1980. Life happens, so I understand the delay. My oldest son and I have finally Starting restoring it now that I have retired. Hopefully I can stay on track and get it done in a year.

    1967 Camaro was my first car. My parents sold it before I got out of the Navy. Since then I have always been looking for a 67 RS SS convertible, I know you said SS.

    Let me know how that works. I am trying to finish a boat for 11 years. The dedicated day seems to abdicate!

    I certainly wish you well, as I have been in your shoes. I had a 1969 Charger R/T that I ended up giving away back in 1983…I had just purchased our “dream house” and I knew where my priorities were. Later my 1978 turbocharged Buick Regal stopped running. I kept it around for about 15 years before I ended up giving it to a charity. I had good intentions, but life happened.

    I feel your pain ! I bought a 1956 Oldsmobile 4dr super 88 , then I bought another one for parts . It’s been only a mess . It’s been 6 years since I’ve touched them. I like your thoughts, as for me I was waiting on building another Garage.
    The garage will be done next week hopefully.
    Then I’ll have to get power to it . .
    So all the best to you on the Camaro. It’s a beautiful car , remember we can only eat a Elephant one bit at a time.

    I’m in the same situation. I haven’t done much with my GTO for the last 3 years. Busy busy busy. Maybe bite the bullet and pay someone to do the job for you. Nice car though.
