Looks like it might be the original engine, power brakes and steering and I don't see much for rust. Looks like a solid little car to bring back to life...

Not a common color combo either. Should be an interesting restoration.

Thanks. Can't find partial vin on engine or trans. The whole drivetrain does predate the build date by a few weeks. Quarters were done along time ago and floors are solid.

It wasn't common for the partial to be stamped on the base models. If the assembly date and application code on the front pad are in line with the build date on the trim tag, that's about as good as it gets.
The vin will indicate whether the car was a 6 or 8 cylinder but nothing else about drive train. Any trim codes on the tag for options ?

If you haven't already, go to http://camaros.org/ for the most complete and accurate 1st gen Camaro info around. The site can be a little difficult to work around in, but it will help you find and decode all the castings and dates on the car.

It has an124 vin so it is an 8cyl. Still has the original motor mount straps. Yeah, like that motor was going anywhere. I've been on that site like everyday since he got the car. Thanks. Mark

The straps weren't there for hp, they were to cover GM's butt from other vehicles having the throttle rod get stuck in wot from a broken motor mount and crash, resulting in lawsuits.


Both my '67 Camaro and '66 Chevelle have midnight series Lokar pedals with cables.

In 67, they only put partial vins on hipo engines. Became standard in 68.
