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]
The Deluxe Interior and RS equipment almost entirely came from a car that had them removed for weight reduction when that car (not this one) was converted to a drag car in 1970 and stored in original owner's basement until I bought the pieces in 1983 a few months after purchasing this car (and yes, THE HIDEAWAY HEADLIGHTS DO WORK).
The deep dish Corvette rally wheels sport P215-60R-15's up front andP265-50R-15's in the rear. Tread depth is like new and they were stored in the house.
Car is equipped with many desirable options. 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 factory stock complete/intact and runs well. The Quadrajet carburetor just got the revised float needle and seat kit installed (from 65' thru early 67' Rochester had a poorly designed plunger float stopper design 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 round low rise 14"x 3" open air element air cleaner with the 350ci 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 (with new OEM/GM 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.(Check back on this listing, I may update it daily as I have time and more pics become available).

LATEST READINESS UPDATES ARE BELOW
All the readinesstask are now 99% complete [see bold notes for change reasons], For all general purposes it is ready, finally beenout for the first test drive in more than a decade and it drove & shifted awesome (last driven 200 yards from my previous house to current in 2004 and before in 1998 both times for storage relocation only. It has not been driven more than a few miles since 1985 and always for storage relocation only. The "hiccup" that occurred that delayed a week or two was the Reverse Lockout mechanism in the shifter broke (another typical known design failure issue recognized as early as 1969 that survived all these years before deciding to break!). A relatively basic mechanical issue butIt would not go into reverse because of it. This has been successfully fixed. That is the good news.
Items done in getting it out of storage to be ready for sale include the following. The driver's door power window motor has been replaced, the original rear body harness has been replaced with a new reproduction RS correct harness, the clear coat is sprayed over the correct black & aqua trunk spatter paint completing trunk pan & shock covering patch panel replacement detailed below, the entire brake system was just gone through with new master cylinder, booster, wheel cylinders, etc.
For the first time since at least 1983 the back-up lights are fully functional!!!A new/correct Muncie reverse "back-up light" switch/assembly has been added.[Correction - they were functional untilswitch broke during reverse lockout shifter repairs, new switch on hand ready to be installed and will resolve the constant on reverse light issue that can be identified in the video.] Alsoan unmolested new rear body harness was purchased and installed.[It was thought the new harness would resolve my lighting issues, but during the swap out it was not noticed that the dark green wire from the lead plug had broken and pulled out. Identified 7/5 but no time to fix. My 21 year old caregiver / nurse who follows instructions very well was able to complete the wiring fix to resolve the Right Rear brake/signal problems shown in the video. She's a gem! (it helps that she is fearless, thin (able to squeeze up under dash), has a great mechanical aptitude, and nopreconceivedideas about how these things should be done! ;-) I showed her pics of the plugs and wire connectors, explained how they could be removed, wire stripped, new connector added, and connection made (Note: Because I do not have the factory receiver (female) connector to go back in the body plug the dark green wires are connected external to the body harness plug, but if desired can easily be reinserted if the female connector is swapped with a factory style with retention tab. The male blade connector from the new harnessremains connected to the new harness wire and was simply released from the plug].
The trunk well pan was just replaced this spring because the car came to me in 1983 with no trunk/deck lid seal and there was water trapped beneath the trunk matt [it was not a priority to address in 1983 (as a teenager I had other priorities -ie. dates)beyond putting a trunk seal in right away, drying it out, & cleaning it]. It looked the same in December 2018 as it did in 1985 when it went into storage. Bottom line it 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. THAT IS JUST WRONG! [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 the 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. There are 6 cans of black / aqua spatter paintandtwo cans of double coverage satin clear coat for a durable/lasting moistureresistant finish to the trunk. It really looks good! (and will for a long time). The shock bracket covering stampings are better looking now than the washed out, wrinkled, corner cutting, thinned out stamping Fisher Body rushed into production in 1966!

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 deal /transactioncould not be completed until mid-January. Long story short he failed to complete the deal without ever looking at / inspecting the car... 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.
