Help us choose how we restore this '67 Camaro RS
What colour should it be? What wheels? Wide-body or stock? There are choices to be made and we need your suggestions!
My friends Bob & Adam recently got themselves a new 'project car', a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS in need of some serious love. The paint is beyond saving, the floor is rusted in places so a new one is on the way, the interior is in tatters and needs a full re-trim. What else... the brakes, other than being over 50-years old don't really work, the suspension is more akin to a caravan than a car capable of over 500bhp. Oh yes, the good bits, it comes with a 5.4 litre (327cu) 'small' block V8 (gotta love American humour) which seems to be in good nick, but we won't know for sure till it's taken apart.
Choices, choices, choices...
In short, the car needs extensive restoration, and there are a lot of choices to be made. What colour scheme do we go for, the interior do we keep it stock or go for racing buckets? Then there are the mechanical bits...
Full disc-brake conversion or fixing the old drums? It's a slush auto-box so do we keep it or go for a manual swap? Oh, and what about the engine if it's good, do we keep it stock or modify it by adding an EFI kit & maybe some turbos? If it's cacked what engine do we go for, an old Chevy big-block or a modern LS motor?
We need your help! How should we bring this beaut back to its prime?
