Featured on AutoHunter, the online auction platform driven by ClassicCars.com, is this 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe that is that is powered by a 383 stroker engine. 

The 1967 model marked the first year of the Camaro. It was designed to compete with the Ford Mustang, and, even though I am a big Ford fan, I have always somehow preferred the Camaro to the Mustang. I am not sure if it is the more subtle (and almost elegant) styling or because they are more rare than the Mustang, but the first generation Camaro has always been the winner of the two pony cars for me.

The 1967 Camaro has a number of first-year-only features including hood vent windows, a lack of side mounted marker lights, and a different type of shock mount. I feel that because the 1967 model is the first in a long line of Camaro cars that they will always have a following. Many people advise that when buying an iconic classic car you should buy the first or the last, and this car is one of the first. As a result it would likely be the one to buy if you are thinking of long term investment in a classic pony car.

The seller describes this 1967 Camaro as one that was previously sold on AutoHunter in 2021, and since then has reportedly received $30,000 in work under its new owner. This includes the addition of a Vintage Air climate control system, power steering, QA1 suspension components, and numerous performance upgrades. It is powered by a 383ci stroker V8 backed by a Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission. The car is painted in Sunset Orange over a black vinyl interior and comes with service receipts and a clear title in the seller’s name.

Highlights of this car include a cowl-induction hood, rear spoiler, power steering, LED headlights, the aforementioned Vintage Air climate control system and QA1 suspension components, all of which work to make this classic Camaro one that would easily work as a great daily driver and an amazing example for vintage tours and rallies.

The interior of this Camaro is just the way I like it with stock bucket seats with correct black vinyl upholstery and a center console-mounted manual transmission shifter. There are some nice and subtle upgrades including a Bluetooth audio system with Pioneer and Rockford Fosgate speakers. It looks like the perfect mix of stock and tastefully upgraded components. Basically a stock 1967 Camaro interior that has features of a modern car.

Under the hood is where everything comes together perfectly with a solid lifter Chevy 383 stroker motor built up from this car’s original block with a lot of high quality performance parts added. These include Edelbrock Performer heads, an Edelbrock RPM aluminum intake manifold, aluminum accessories brackets, an HEI distributor, a Holley Brawler 4-barrel carburetor, headers with heat wrap, fuel pump relocated and coated with heat wrap, a Powermaster chrome alternator, a Rebuilt starter, new valve covers, new head gaskets, a Griffin radiator, and chrome pulleys.

Then we come to the chassis mods all of which are also top notch. These modifications include QA1 tubular control arms, QA1 sway bar, tie rods, bearings, and ball joints, 2” dropped front spindles, both front and rear coilover shocks, cut and rewelded rear axle mounting points, and a rear sway bar. This is a Camaro that not only goes fast in a straight line but one that can also handle the curves of a vintage road tour with ease.

This 1967 Camaro is the perfect classic pony car for today’s world, offering the classic looks of a first year first generation Camaro combined with some of the best modern components to make it drive as good as it looks. If you are the type of collector who wants to actually use your car, this Camaro is just the ticket.
