1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS

1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS

This is my 1967 RS SS tribute that I have had since 2013. In that time I have welded in new floor pans and rocker panels, redid the interior, disc brakes all around, new master cylinder, new windshield and exhaust. Most recently I pulled the front off the car off to redo the top half of the engine and installed a 200R4 tranny. The list goes on but I have completed all the work myself but still need to do the fine-tuning and replace the mono springs in the rear to accommodate the increased HP. Love working on and talking about cars. I also own an 1984 VW Scirocco that is currently in pieces in my garage and a 1969 Opel GT that comes apart next. Will add pics of the other two when they are done. Things have come a long way from my first car, a 1969 Plymouth Valiant 4 door that I bought for $100 because it didn’t have reverse.

    Beauty! Brings back memories of my brother-in-laws 67-8 327 which I did a tune-up on one weekend in our garage... not sure but I think it had over 65,000 miles on it and how it ran was a miracle plugs had no electrode left firing from inside the ceramic to the thread base... and the points had almost burnt away not sure how long they would have continued to work! He was lucky I offered to tune it up that weekend!

    Awesome. I am just finishing a 68 Cutlass S convertible and thinking about a 200 4R. It would be interesting to know how you like it and what rear end ratio you chose. Great work and nice to see you are doing it all yourself! Regards, Greg Broadbent Saskatoon

    Love your 67, I have an RS/SS convertible, 396 4 speed waiting for me to have time to get to it.

    Hi Barry, that is a really nice, very traditional appearing 1967 Camaro. Regarding the Mono Leaf springs: They are actually very capable except in drag racing where it was no secret that they were responsible for wheel hop. The solution back when the Camaro was new, and even today, is a set of traction bars. The Nickey Traction Bars are the perfect Day 2 upgrade for traditional Camaros. They eliminate the wheel hop while allowing you to retain the Mono Leaf springs.

    Beautiful Camaro Barry. You are doing it right...fix it so you can drive it. It may be a tribute, but to the average person on the street it is a great looking RS/SS. Thanks for posting
