Our 67 rs/ss L78 coupe

Long story short, dad is owner #1 & #4 of this car. The url below shows bpics between 1967 through today

Our 1967 Camaro RS/SS L78 coupe was purchased new by my father at Dick Shalla Chevrolet in Detroit. It is one of the first 396/375 L78 Camaros ever produced.
Car is originally white with a black interior, fold down rear seat, 4 speed transmission and vinyl top.

Dad raced the car at local tracks like Detroit Dragway, Windsor Dragway and MotorCity Dragway.

He sold the car less powertrain in 1971. The car changed hands one more time a few years after and was raced with a 12 point cage and small block until the early 90s.

Dad and I found the car entirely by accident on display at the 1989 Detroit Autorama. The third owner kept the original interior and every other little detail of the car in storage. Not too long after we bought the car back. The car has been kept 100% solid except the floors were replaced to return the shell back to a stock setup and the roll cage has been removed.

This 17 year restoration has gone as slow as they come, but we do plan to put the car on the road

This project is waiting in the wings while we work on the restoration of our '67 Chevy Stepside

Thanks. I've posted it on Team Camaro, CRG & Yenkos.net before.

Plan is a rod-storation Original powertrain is long gone, so it will have many cubes. It will be lettered up like the original pics, but no vinyl top.
