67 Camaro Build

Short back story to start the 67 Camaro build. We acquired this project car in June 2011, previous owner had had enough Camaro fun and listed it in the local online classifieds. Hereís what the car looked like in September 2007 about the time the PO purchased it. From the ad copy it sounds like it was in need of some metal work, which is exactly what the PO started with a local shop.

Re: 67 Camaro Build

After a bunch of $$$ (according to the PO during our negotiations) and the shop closing its doors the Camaro was left in mid metal repair. Hereís how it looked when we found it.

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Big project right there, hopefully all the metal work is done to your satisfaction!
My buddy had 6 or 7 of these when We were kids....iirc, he built them all with his dad and then sold them off to fund his college.


Good luck and great project!!

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Thanks Clyde65, whatís been done looks pretty good so one of our first moves is going to be inspecting that work again to refresh the memory. You know a good friend of mine also restored a pair of 69ís back in the day, both were big block cars and if I remember correctly it paid for (or darn close) his house that they still live in today.



Once the car got here it went to the media blaster. Only damage that weíve found not caused by rust and earlier body work is this spot on the left rear inner structure next to the quarter window.

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Nice. The less rust repair the better! Have any plans for solid sub frame mounts or sub frame connectors etc?

Re: 67 Camaro Build

I agree that would be nice! Perhaps or polyurethane (?), sub frame connectors for sure.


Hit it with the DA, bolted on some wheels and pushed it outside for some pics, looked pretty good from a few feet away. Here’s some close ups, plenty of area’s that still need attention.

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Shortly after that last round of pics we tore the car back down to a shell, Iíd no idea it would be a little over 5 years to get back to it.

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Man, I'm so jealous. I can't leave anything bare metal for that long without doing more work.

Do you plan to race this car ot will it just be a tribute car? From the research I've done on the bushings, the polys still flex a bit. So racers recommend solid ones. I plan to auto cross mine so I think I'm going solid on it.

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Oh no, donít be jealous, best way to describe the next maneuver is stupid is as stupid does... Yes, and no, not a dedicated race car (no roll cage) but a very fun street car with some time slips in the glove box!


Hereís pics of us pulling it out of storage a few months ago, some dingus (me?) put it away without sealing it up.

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Are you going to spray acid on it or a rust converter or just sand it off? It still doesn't look bad though.

Re: 67 Camaro Build

Itís not that bad and would sand off (flash rust), probably will end up sanding some areas but with it getting rear quarters, etc. Itíll probably get media blasted one more time after weíre done with all the metal repairs.



I did have a red on red 67 Camaro (327, glide, 10 bolt) back in high school for a short time. Always wanted a 67 Camaro, big block, 4-speed day two-ish type drag car. The plan has always been a tribute car to Grumpyís Toy III. Donít know if weíll actually letter the car but I like everything about one of the first big block Camaroís. Hereís some picís of the actual restored car owned by the Mecumís and back in the day with Daí Grump & George Hurst.
