TECHNICAL SPECIFICATIONS /INFORMATION
Overall information on the car.
Built at Van Nuys, California plant November 1966. It is an original L30/M20 car (essentially the "sleeper version" of the SS). This car has the ORIGINAL NUMBERS MATCHING L30 MK code 275 hp engine, all original rust free body (exceptions: one small rust repair from stone chips on left rear behind wheel, see note about new trunk well pan/repair, and the hood has been replaced with SS style). The original Saginaw 4 speed has been upgraded to the more durable Muncie, the 10 bolt rear end upgraded to a 12 bolt positraction (all SS 350 and L30/M20 cars built until late December 1966 came with 10 bolts). [NOTE: CRG reports can be referenced for L30/M20 and SS car production configuration details]
It is equipped with a lot of desirable options, and all that didn't originally come on it were OEM original GM production parts acquired (except as noted) in 1983 / 84:
*Actual 67' Headrest(searched 3 years from 83' thru 85' for these with seat backs & hardware)* Deluxe interior (all original)* Tilt Column* Power windows* AM/FM Radio + FM Stereo Multiplex Unit* Console mountedarm rest style 8-Track Player* Under dash "Radio-Tape Switch" highly sought / rare (all factory wire harnesses)* Factory Speed Warning Indicator* Console w/Gauges (Clock, Fuel, Oil Pressure, Amps, Temp)* Tachometer* Fold down rear seat* Rear window defogger* 12 Bolt Positraction Rear Axle 3.73 Gear Ratio (not numbers matching butdesirable).* Muncie 4 spd (not numbers matching butdesirable)* Heavy Duty Cooling (3 Core wider radiator, 5 blade clutch fan)* Power Brakes* Power Steering* Rear Deck Spoiler (OEM, but no 67' came from factory with one)* 68' Deep Dish 15x7 Corvette Rally's up front (made by GM only in 68')* 69' or later Deep Dish15x8Corvette Rally's in the rear* Disc Brake Center Caps (reproduction units)* Pedal Trim* Deluxe seat belts (front only)* Console seat belt clips* Retractable seat belts outers in sleeve covering* Stainless interior trim over windows* Chrome trimmed roof drip rail* Rubber inserted tall style rear bumper guards (car came from factory with fronts too but have been removed)
The car's original engine is nearly complete. The Quadrajet carburetor just got the revised float needle and seat kit installed (from 65' thru early 67' they had a poorly designed plunger float stopper that failed on many cars early, somehow mine survived up to being stored in 1985). The original air cleaner and valve covers had been replaced with aftermarket pieces when I bought it In the spirit of the SS tribute upgrades I have had installed OEM chrome Chevrolet script valve covers and an aftermarket reproduction chrome cover low rise open air element air cleaner with 350 295 HP reproduction label. I am not sure if all L30s came with the HD cooling option, but this car does have it (just like the SS 350) which includes a 3 core wider than standard radiator and 5 blade clutch fan (I got a new OEM replacement fan clutch which was just installed).
The underside of this Camaro is very solid and shows itself well. It has been spared from years of undercoating and rattlecan restorations. There is nothing to hide under this car.
This is a great running and driving Camaro. Cars like this don't pop up too often. It's not an over the top trailer-queen type of car, but a great car to get in and take to shows and enjoy.

HISTORY / REASON SELLING
I have owned this Camaro since 1983 (bought it when I was just 17 yrs old). IT HAS BEEN IN STORAGE SINCE 1985!!! This is my cherished car that life always presented too many other obstacles to get around to getting it out to make it the show quality classic I wanted to. Nearly 9 years ago I fell off a ladder and broke my neck. Finally last spring I came to grips with the fact I should sell it. These days I can do nothing physically myself and am at the mercy of family and friends to follow through on my request. I have good support from them, but of course they have their own lives and limited availability. As a result it takes a long time to follow through on things to be done. With that in mind I decided to list it as it was at that point in time late last fall to avoid any more burden on my friends. After listening to potential buyers grumble about rust on the very bottom of the trunk well/pan (note: goofy previous owner had removed damaged trunk seal without replacing it and water got in/had been trapped under matt for who knows how long) and some other nitpicking issues I conceded that they needed to be addressed before I would put it up for sale again.
My friends volunteered to do all that was necessary, but just before they got started with the trunk well pan I got an offer to purchase from a buyer for it as it was at a price that was good enough to warrant avoiding any further burden on my family and friends. The caveat the buyer had was the dealtransactioncould not be completed until mid-January. Long story short he failed to complete the deal... So I let my friends and family know and they stepped up again to do the revisions to address the mainitems buyers had taken issue with.
All the biggest task are now 95% complete, but I added several smaller task that are now adding to the delay (examples = driver's door power window motor replacement has been started => door inside is apart and new power window motor came yesterday but waiting for someone to install, the original rear body harness was butchered for the RS conversion in 1983 and I decided to buy a new reproduction RS correct harness to replace it. I did not know that it runs all the way up under the dash to plug in, which is now done except portion in trunk is rolled up in a plastic bag behind wheel well until the clear coat is sprayed over the correct black & aqua trunk spatter paint, and the drivers seat was/is still removed to make getting under the dash easier, etc. etc. etc). Hopefully the loose ends can be completed soon.The trunk has turned out really nice and it is a quality job done intended to last a long time. It did end up with "project scope creep" because it was discovered that there was also thin metal/rust in the classic area where the factory trunk pan stamping covers the shock brackets. A lot of people selling a car would just cut a little out, slap some Duraglas in and call it a day. THOSE PEOPLE TICK ME OFF! [Reminds me of the home improvement show "Holmes on Homes" and his motto "Make it Right!"] If the trunk well pan is already being cut out it makes accessing and working on the shock areas ten times easier so it makes sense to take a little more time and "Make it Right" (it may not qualify as show quality to some but it has been done sound/durable to last). You need to be careful who you're buying from or you could end up with a "cosmetic jewel" thatdeterioratesfast after you get it home.
After removing the original metal that the patch panels would cover (well beyond the areas of issue) everything beneath was cleaned out, sprayed with multiple coats of Loctite rust converter (factory dip process never coated any of this area on ANY 67 Camaro as it was vapor locked/no where for air to escape... poorly designed for process... I digress on this because I was a manufacturing engineer with some experience in this area), underside of patch panels primed & painted and welded in place. Then skim coats of Duraglas were applied and professionally finished over all welded areas, primed, and trunk spatter painted. At this listing it is just needing to be satin clear coated for durable/lasting moistureresistant longevity (will be done before this listing ends). It really looks good! (and will for a long time) The shock bracket covering stampings are better looking than the washed out wrinkledcorner cutting stamping Fisher Body rushed into production in 1966.
