The first-generation Camaro hit the roads late in 1966 with a mission to eclipse its biggest competitor, the Ford Mustang. The 67 models had almost 80 factory options and 40 dealer-specific options to choose from, with the most desirable ones being the Rally Sport (RS), SuperSport (SS), and Z/28 models. The SS option, such as our subject car, added a dollop of power and was designed to tear up the quarter-mile in around 15 seconds — impressive today, but even more so over 50 years ago. This specific Camaro is reported to have just 2.5k miles on its new 454 motor.
The Chevy comes in a "Bolero Red" exterior paint with a black nose stripe and vinyl top. The lip and front grille also come in black, hosting the classic first-gen Camaro quad headlights. This car is reported to have no rust, which fits in with the spotless chrome grille frames, front and rear bumpers, and side mirror frames. This Camaro has frameless windows, new shocks, and disk brakes all around, as well as 5-spoke deep dish chrome wheels and a dual exhaust system. The cabin has been fitted with an A/C unit from Vintage Air. Certain components inside the car have been preserved. The black leather seats and door panels are well looked after, with chrome accents still gleaming. The center console hosts an oil temperature gauge, fuel gauge and an inbuilt clock, and a short shifter with a white gear knob.
The standard engine has been swapped with a 454 big-block V-8 with headers, an Edelbrock Proflow fuel injection system, and a 4-speed manual transmission Hurst shifter — a combination that's bound to put an ear-to-ear grin on any prospective buyer.
