The contrast between high performance and a subtle color is always appealingand#44; and this cool 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS convertible looks exactly right wearing Deepwater Blue paint and a contrasting white nose stripe. Recently refinished with gorgeous paintand#44; a matching-numbers L48 under the hoodand#44; and a long list of options including A/Cand#44; its an awesome machine that delivers the performance its looks seem to promise.<br /> <br /> Although the 69 Camaro is quite likely the most popular Chevy of all timeand#44; there are a large number of folks who think the simple lines of the earlier cars were exactly right. Compactand#44; but muscularand#44; the first Camaro was a simple design that allowed small details to have a big impact. Gorgeous code E Deepwater Blue is this cars original colorand#44; and it looks like a million bucks from any angle. Super straight sheetmetal certainly helpsand#44; and the finish quality on this car is quite goodand#44; although this is not necessarily a trailer queen. They kept the original hood with its factory insertsand#44; and the chin spoilerand#44; which together make this an aggressive-looking ragtop that doesnt lose its F-body identity in the process. The white stripe follows the factory patternand#44; and the blacked-out SS grille with Rally Sport hidden headlights finishes out the aggressive package without being overbearing. Excellent chrome bumpers and bright stainless on things like the windshield surround add a bit of jewelry. We also like the fact that theres no spoiler out backand#44; which always looks kind of busy on a ragtop.<br /> <br /> Insideand#44; gorgeous Parchment buckets wear fresh seat covers that replicate the original pattern with a matching seat cover on the rear bench. Many of the soft parts were replaced during the restorationand#44; including those seat coversand#44; the carpetsand#44; the door panelsand#44; and even the dash pad appears to be a newer piece. A skinny deep-dish steering wheel is pure 1960s styleand#44; with clean original gaugesand#44; including a factory tachand#44; clearly visible through the spokes. A trio of auxiliary gauges on the center consoleand#44; just ahead of the shifterand#44; helps keep an eye on the great-running small block living under the hood. Options include A/Cand#44; which now uses modern hardwareand#44; power windowsand#44; a consoleand#44; and an AM/FM radioand#44; so you know the guy who originally specd this car wanted some luxury with his performance. Overhead theres a new white convertible top and the trunk is fitted with a correct reproduction mat that fits remarkably well.<br /> <br /> Power comes from the originaland#44; matching-numbers L48 350 paired with a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission (replacing the original PowerGlide)and#44; and the engine bay is dressed for show. Aside from the modern A/C compressorand#44; its quite correctand#44; from the chrome-topped air cleaner to the Chevy Orange paint on the blockand#44; although the chrome valve covers were added for a little flash. It starts easilyand#44; idles nicelyand#44; and pulls with vigor at any speedand#44; but its docile enough to drive every day. Long-tube headers help build power and theres a brand new exhaust system with stainless mufflers that sound great. A heavy-duty 12-bolt rear endand#44; monoleaf springsand#44; and a new gas tank round out the list of virtues that come with this Camaro. Handsome 15-inch Rally wheels carry recent redline radials for the perfect period look and modern handling.<br /> <br /> Theres a lot more than the asking price wrapped up in this slick F-body ragtopand#44; and the classic color combination will never go out of style.
