Enjoy the photo gallery on this Supercharged Restomod Mustang!

It’s not a Delorean, but this Camaro SS survivor is a time machine.

Nostalgia is a powerful force, and for the owner of this super cool 1967 Chevrolet Camaro, it’s turned up to 11. You see, this is not only a really cool 1967 Camaro, with it’s factory-installed first year 350 V8, Rally Sport (RS) appearance package, and Super Sport (SS) performance goodies, but it’s a valued family member that has returned to the fold.

The Car

When a car arrives at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop, we like to verify it’s identity to see what we’re working with. This time, the VIN and cowl trim tag spell out how this car was built in the first week of November, and was originally painted Butternut Yellow with matching interior and black vinyl top. The RS SS packages are original, as appears the new for 295 horsepower 350 V8 and 4-speed manual transmission installed at the Los Angeles (Van Nuys) CA plant.

The Story

The owner was fortunate to have some great times in the car “back in the day”, as he and his brother would drive it in high school together. As you can imagine, there are many stories about those days. Unfortunately, his brother is no longer with us, and the Camaro got away from the family. However, our customer’s wife eventually located the car, purchased it, and presented it back to the owner for a very special birthday present. We can only imagine the flood of memories and emotions that day when he slid behind the wheel of this treasured Camaro once again.

Check Out The Story In The Video

Next steps for the Camaro SS

After reviewing the condition of the Camaro, the owner determined he needed a hand to get it back on the road. He contacted us at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop to evaluate it’s condition and create a plan that brings the car right back to the condition it was in back in high school… or maybe a bit nicer! Although originally yellow, the owner’s experience and memories are with it in black, so black it should stay. We’ll go over the car and propose a least-invasive restoration and preservation to make it safe, reliable, and ready to burn up the streets once again.

What’s your car’s story?

The V8 Speed and Resto Shop mission statement is to “connect people with the best times of their lives through things with wheels”, and this is a perfect example. We are honored for the opportunity to work on this prized Camaro SS, and fully understand the significance of cars like these… they all have stories, but some are never known. In the end, it’s really all about the people and good times had with the car.

How can we help write your family heirloom Classic or Muscle Car’s next chapter?

The V8 Speed and Resto Shop Team stands at the ready to assist with your classic car’s maintenance, preservation, partial restoration, modification, complete restoration, or even to build a totally custom, bespoke, one-of-a-kind automobile that reflects your desires. Contact us today to start the conversation… we love a great car story!

The First Of The New Generation

1982 was the debut year for the all-new 3rd Generation Chevrolet Camaro, including the highest-performance offering of the day, the Z28. While the early 1980s were not the pinnacle of performance years, this 4-speed Z28 holds a very special place in the heart and mind of the owner, and we’re looking forward to lighting its fire once again.

Connecting The Past With The Future

Cars like this one transport us back to when they were new, and the owner has had this one ever since then. We’re honored to have a hand in this Z28s future, renewing the spirit of the car and the soul of the owner through the throw of the 4-speed shifter. Reach us at the V8 Speed and Resto Shop to chat about the next chapter for your classic or muscle car.
