SUPERSLICK '67, BLACK-ON-BLACK, 350 V8, AUTO, DUALS, PWR FRNT DISC, PS, R134 AC
Build a car right and things like matching numbers and certifications become irrelevant. Take this slick black-on-black 1967 Camaro SS, which gets all the basics right, from the bodywork to the interior, and adds a healthy 350 cubic inch small block to liven up the party. We sell a lot of these, but most aren't this cool.
You undoubtedly know how tough it is to build a black car and make it look right. It takes a lot of time and effort, and if you're paying pros, an equally big pile of cash. The quality shows on this Camaro, because the black paint makes the other black cars parked around it look somehow dusty. No modifications to the clean early Camaro shape means that you need to get the big stuff right and focus on the little things, so the finish was buffed and polished to minimize distortions and ripples, and the gaps were tightened up as much as possible. Add a cowl-induction hood, a chin spoiler, and the ducktail out back and you have the perfect F-body look, and when it looks this butch, you can just skip the stripes because they're totally unnecessary. The car looks nasty, yes, but it also looks beautiful, and that's tough to do. Is it perfect? No, of course not. But if you like the understated look, this one delivers in a big way. It also offers bright chrome that shines up nicely against that black paint, offering just the right amount of contrast for this all-business coupe.
The interior is basic black, too, with correct seat covers, nice carpets, and a center console to lend it an upscale feel. This was not some stripped-down basic Camaro they started with, you know. The late-model steering wheel and steering column give it a more modern feel and there's a B&M shifter on the center console, making it easy to find the right gear in the heat of combat. The gauges are in excellent condition and are augmented by a set of auxiliary gauges under the dash, offset to the driver's side by the under-dash A/C unit that's a cool period-correct accessory. The original AM radio is long gone, replaced by an AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit which is probably due for an upgrade to something with iPod and Bluetooth capability, which this car definitely deserves. The trunk isn't anything amazing, but it's clean and solid with no stories and a reproduction mat is cheap and would make it look 100% once again.
Under the hood you'll find a strong 350 that's more than capable to smoke the tires or saddle up for the long haul. With a bunch of chrome dress-up and a cackling exhaust note, you're not buying this car because of the numbers stamped on its various pieces. No, you're in it for the horsepower, and thanks to an Edelbrock 4-barrel carb, high-rise intake manifold, MSD ignition, and long-tube headers, it delivers. A modern dual reservoir master cylinder powers the front disc brakes and there's a new chrome alternator, too. The transmission is a 3-speed automatic spinning a 10-bolt rear end. A recent dual exhaust system offers an awesome soundtrack and the staggered Torque Thrust wheels give it just the right stance with 225/65/15 front and 225/50/17 rear performance radials.
This is a great car for the guy who likes cars because they're cars. If you want investments, go somewhere else, because this car doesn't need paperwork to be impressive. Call today!
