If it is, I don't know about it.

Here's a road test of a 1967 Dana 427 Camaro as found in "Camaro", a one-off special edition magazine
done by Cycle World, owned by Joe Parkhurst Publishing Company. (Jon Mello Collection)

No, it isn't. I was told by either Wayne Guinn or Jerry Thompson, possibly both, that the car was used up on the Proving Ground and destroyed when they were done with it. That is kind of supported by the fact that they used a different '67 Z (as a comparison between the old and new model) when they had the '68 new car introductions for the press.

The May '67 issue of Car Life magazine featured an article titled Magic at Mesa about Chevy's "Supernatural Seven"
which included a road test of the '67 Z-28. Mesa, Arizona was Chevy's southwestern proving ground that they used
for hot weather testing. {Jon Mello Collection)

Thanks, Doug. I liked him as well.

He wasn't wrong about the seat. It can be a bear on a long trip.

Here's an article on the '67 Z as found in "Camaro", a special edition publication done by Joe Parkhurst Publishing Company,
famous for doing the Cycle World magazines. I have no idea why they felt they needed to color in the Z stripes in blue.

Gary, I'm glad you liked it. It speaks to a passion for the car, which I know I certainly have for it.

Thanks for posting that, Steve. You've gotta love the picture of the buried speedo needle and the tach at 6,300.

Thanks for clarifying Jon.

You're welcome.


Jon, that article makes me want to go out and buy one.

If you liked that, maybe you'll enjoy this May '67 David E. Davis column too. I really love it.

This press preview car is the only one that got the spoilers and even so, they were not installed on
the assembly line. They were added later but prior to getting shown to the press.

Here's an actual road test done by Car & Driver magazine. They had a few gripes but we generally
enthusiastic about the car.

On my scanner, my selections are quality:low and size:large which I think works out as a maximum of 1024 when I put it on photobucket.

Here is an article from the April '67 issue of Speed and Supercar magazine, courtesy of Robert Lodewyk. There is some
information in the article that is obviously wrong, such as the notion that the off-white cream color was the only color
available. Also, it was not a "Camaro Z-28 Super Sports", just simply a Camaro Z-28. Since this was a bi-monthly pub-
lication and it says the June issue was coming out March 23rd, I assume this "April" issue came out in late January '67.

If I'm recalling correctly, JohnZ has told us the cowl tag information was generated when the body weldup began.

I have seen examples where GM records show a build date in the week prior to what is indicated on the cowl tag, so that is not true 100% of the time.

Mike, thanks for the scoop on what happened with the Cuda. It's going to take some serious money to make the necessary repairs but I don't think that will be a problem.

Mike, hopefully things get better next time around. This was an event I have always enjoyed in the past.
