On a recent visit to my brother's in Nevada, ...I purchased another '67 Camaro, ...believe it or not, ...with 39,xxx original miles. I don't have pics yet, but will shortly...
(Interestingly enough, ..."RickH", a good friend of mine and a fellow member on this board is still out west and (hopefully ; ) will be taking the photos this week when he stops by to see it, ...I did not take any while I was there : (
...Anyway, ...It's a 327/275hp, PG, Gold (w/Blk vinyl top) Dlx Blk interior, factory AC, with factory SMOG (original pump is in a box in the trunk), ...and amazingly has it's black California plates STILL on it (that JUST expired 8/12/2006), ...it's still VERY road worthy and runs just fine. Other than a few 'shopping cart' dents and an older repaint, ...the car is in very good shape, ...all original sheetmetal with NONE needing replacement.
...I've even talked with the 'old lady' who owned it from 1972 - 2005. She remembers buying it (from a used car lot), ..."...it had 1700 miles on it, ...and she paid $1700...". I'm hoping to obtain some photos of it when she owned it...
Is there any way within California to do a DMV history, ...since it seems the plates that are currently on the car appear to have been registered with it since pre-72 (?). Since it does have SMOG, ...then it seems to have been originally built for/sold in California. (When were the Black CA plates in issue anyway? ...what years?)
WHERE have you found your build sheet? ...this car only has 39,000 (and something) miles on it. Spring tags, jacking instructions, ...the car really has not been touched. I know of the 'above the gas tank';, ...'behind back seat', ...where have they been known to be found? (I've been messing with these cars for years, ...I've yet to ever find one. My fingers are crossed that this will be the one I find it in...)
