Post a picture before you do anything else! It would also be great if you could tell what sort of paint was in that rattle can...

Hotrod, we're practically neighbors!  I live in Clemmons, but the car is at Lake Norman... which explains why I'm connected to Hornets Nest in Charlotte.

See, there you have it...
Camaros are more plentiful in the southeast right now!  Granted, you have to weed your way through a lot of clones...
I saw more Camaros for sale at the Hornets Nest Autofair (Charlotte, Lowes Motor Speedway) in April of this year than I have seen in the last several years. 
On the other hand, I was in Seattle about a year ago.  Went around to five different dealers to have a look.  Camaros were rare!
That also explains why some folks come south (or southwest) to look for a car and trailer (or drive) it back home.  From their "market" it's worth the effort.
Still sounds to me like you're getting good advise.  Clean the car up and get someone in you area to put a value to it.
Good luck!  If a 67SS, fully documented, gets back in circulation, we all "profit" from it!

Hows that 67 doing?  Wiring working out well?
I'm in jolly old England looking for an MG-TD, but I saw a great 69 Z28 near Portsmouth yesterday.  Who would have guessed!?!
My experience has been: 50 posts = Jr Member; 100 posts = Full member.  Don't know if there is anything beyond.  Would love to know from Doug if there is...

Not surprised you are having a hard time getting a $$$ answer...
The answer to your real question, "How Much?", is actually very subjective.  It also depends on who wants the car and the size of their wallet.  Then again, there is the question of availability in your area...
If you are not prepared to do a great restoration, these guys are right!  An original car is a wonderful thing to find!  Assuming the car is in great shape, it could bring as much as $23,000 unrestored in my part of the world, which is NC.  A show car (good restoration) could bring $27,000.  Could you bring your car up to show level for $4,000... maybe not....
But again, that's my informed, but subjective, opinion.
2016  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Anyone know what a factory 427 goes for nowadays? on: June 18, 2006, 10:34:36 AM
I have no doubt that your friend's motor came out of a truck.  I had to replace the motor in my S-10 last year and my local mechanic told me there was a 427 available.  Needless to say I declined...
There is a 67 427 Vette Tri-Power on ebay right now.  The bidding ends today, and right now with 11 bids it's at $9500.  Of course it could go much higher.
Chevy High Performance has an article on their web site that lists a literal 427 "Brute" (550hp) at turnkey for about $13000.  I ran across this the other day, but not sure of the date of the article.
2017  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Camaro Clubs in England??? on: June 03, 2006, 01:16:51 PM
Does anyone know of any Camaro clubs in England?  Especially southern England?
Looking for the web sites, but had little success...
Thanks in advance.
2018  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: emblems on: June 02, 2006, 08:08:53 PM
That's right.  Sorry, Bob, when you said your car was an SS 350, I assumed you'd know to use that button (from out of the SS buttons available).  The Camaro promo I listed is a deluxe wheel, which did just have the SS.  I should have been a little more specific.
2019  Camaro Research Group Discussion / General Discussion / Re: Looking for a 1969 Camaro coupe on: June 02, 2006, 03:38:58 PM
I've talked with those guys several times.  They seem to be "straight up".
2020  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: Missing Cowl Tag for 67 Convertible on: June 02, 2006, 08:07:35 AM
Start by researching this site:  --especially 9. Spources and 10. History

Without the cowl tag it is an uphill battle.  81 may seem like a long time ago for you, but I can assure you there were great looking clones in the 70s.  You need to find what other numbers you can.  Start with [from General Info. sources] Alan L. Colvin's Chevrolet By The Numbers, The Essential Chevrolet Parts Reference, 1965-69, Robert Bentley, Inc., 1994. ISBN 0-876-0956-9.  Post what you find in Decoding.

In any case, you have the potential there for a great car.  Good luck and post what you find.

BTW, take a look at Ed,s post about sources in this thread:

...Not exactly the same discussion, but before you start taking the doors apart take a look at this and the previous one it refers to.
2022  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Re: emblems on: May 27, 2006, 09:24:27 PM
SS for both
2023  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Decoding/Numbers / Re: '68 mutt on: May 27, 2006, 08:58:52 PM
Lots of mutts turn out to be great drivers.  Got one myself.

And I quote (from General Information):

"Critical printed references that the CRG recommends that you investigate include the following:
Alan L. Colvin's Chevrolet By The Numbers, The Essential Chevrolet Parts Reference, 1965-69, Robert Bentley, Inc., 1994. ISBN 0-876-0956-9
This is the "bible" of major vehicle components. Separate chapters are included for each of: engine, crankshaft, head, rod, piston, carburetor, intake manifold, exhaust manifold, water pump, distributor, camshaft, alternator, transmission, rear axle/differential, wheels, and Rochester fuel injection. This has had various printings, each with slightly updated and/or corrected information. As of August 1998 the latest printing of this volume was the 1997 4th printing - look at the rear of the book to find a printing difference summary. The major limitation of this work is that it only covers V-8 engined models, though certain components are also applicable to vehicles with L-6 engines.
Chevrolet Camaro Assembly Manual (for your year of interest)
Available as a reprint from the major Camaro parts suppliers. Loose-leaf versions are often preferred for insertion in a three-ring binder."

But now I understand why you asked about the mythical 327 SS in your first post.

Kevin, Good for you!  You're in position to do what is best... and right...
