This 1967 Chevrolet Camaro SS coupe first graced the lot of H. E. Baher Chevrolet in Manhattan Beach, California, where it quickly transitioned from showroom beauty to local drag strip contender under its original owner’s command. By October 2020, the seller procured this automotive gem from the progeny of the second owner, discovering it had been stationary since 1978. The revival process entailed an exhaustive refurbishment of the 396ci L78 V8 engine, Muncie M21 four-speed manual transmission, front disc brakes, and alternator, in addition to re-coring the radiator and replacing universal joints, ball joints, tie rods, fuel tank, and heater core. Sporting a blue exterior adorned with white stripes over black vinyl upholstery, the Camaro is also equipped with a 12-bolt rear axle, a PosiTraction differential, chrome Cragar S/S wheels, traction bars, a Holley carburetor, and an H-pipe dual exhaust system. The vehicle is accompanied by an owner’s manual, spare and removed parts, a Jerry MacNeish report and Certificate of Authenticity, an NCRS shipping data report, and a clear California title in the seller’s name.

Adorned in Marina Blue with a distinctive white nose stripe, the car showcases the optional Z22 Rally Sport package, which adds front valance parking lights, electric hideaway headlight doors, body side pinstriping, a black-painted taillight panel, and rear valance reverse lights, along with bright wheel well, drip gutter, and lower body side moldings. A later-model Camaro spoiler graces the rear. The header panel and front valance were swapped and repainted in the 1970s, while the spoiler received a fresh coat in 2021. The seller notes touch-ups on the right-side quarter panel, alongside various paint chips, scratches, and roof and trunk lid checking.

Chrome 15″ Cragar S/S wheels are paired with Pro-Trac Front Runner front and Street Pro 60 rear tires. The front suspension saw a refresh with Moog tie rods, ball joints, and bushings, while the rear was outfitted with aftermarket traction bars and multi-leaf springs under previous stewardship. The braking system, featuring front discs and rear drums, underwent a rebuild at Karps Power Brake Service in Chino, California.

Inside, the cabin is dressed in standard black vinyl upholstery with front bucket and rear bench seats, complemented by a matching headliner and carpeting, though the latter shows wear beneath the clutch pedal. Additional features include an optional center console with storage, a Hurst shifter, a push-button Delco AM radio, a heater/defroster, and lap belts.

The deluxe three-spoke steering wheel fronts a 120-mph speedometer and a tachometer with a 6k-rpm redline. The center console houses combination fuel-level/coolant-temperature and oil-pressure/battery gauges, along with an electric clock. The five-digit odometer displays 28k miles, approximately 90 of which were added by the seller.

The 396ci L78 V8, originally rated at 375 horsepower, is fed by a Holley four-barrel carburetor with a chrome open-element air cleaner cover, paired with long-tube headers flowing into a dual exhaust system with an H-pipe and Dynomax mufflers. The engine rebuild was handled by VanGordon Racing Engines in Montclair, California, the radiator re-cored by Bob’s Radiator of San Bernardino, and the alternator rebuilt by M&L Parts in Pomona. The engine bay has been refinished in black, with the fuel tank and oil pan being replacements.

The Muncie M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission connects to a repainted QJ-coded 12-bolt rear axle with a PosiTraction differential and a new 4.88:1 final gear ratio. Anaheim Gear and Standard Transmission in California rebuilt the transmission, and the MacNeish report indicates it is a replacement unit, as are the driveshaft universal joints.

A Certificate of Authenticity from Jerry MacNeish of Camaro Hi-Performance LLC accompanies the car, along with a MacNeish report detailing build information, factory options, and component evaluations.

Included in the sale are an owner’s manual, factory production tags, a set of yellow-on-blue California license plates, and a National Corvette Restorers Society shipping data report, as well as spare and removed parts such as a front sway bar, a traction bar, mono-leaf springs, a distributor, a Holley Carburetor, and four 14×6″ Rally wheels with trim rings, hubcaps, and a set of 245/60 BFGoodrich T/A Radial tires.
