67 convertible 6 cyl 3 speed rare??
« on: December 15, 2013, 06:41:44 AM »
I just bought a 67 camaro numbers matching with a 6 cylinder with a 3 speed column shift. Is this a rare car? I know they only made about 5,600 convertibles with 6 cylinders but how many where automatic and how many were 3 and 4 speeds?

5,600 Converts. with 6 cylinders is about as far as you are going to be able to break it down, Chevrolet didn't keep records showing different combinations of options.  There are a few people on here that can give you a good guestimation, % wise.  Maybe one of them will chime in.  Welcome, and sounds like a nice driver.

hey welcome to the CRG. Probably even more rare for a  6 cylinder Camaro to still be running the 6. I would think most got switched over to a V8. Rare doesn't always mean worth more $. How about a picture for us??

This car is a "barn find" been sitting for 30 years. I'll take some pictures when I get her home.

Check the 6 cylinder section; there's a guy doing/did a beautiful restoration of one.

Convertible6. In 1967 my flying instructor had a 6 cyl, 3sp on the column, convertible but to the best of my memory it also had a bench seat. That was the second Camaro I ever rode in. The first was a 4sp, SS350. Jim

Manual column shift cars are uncommon to begin with. You almost never see them anymore. Esp with a convertible.
Can you post a pic of the trim tag?

From what I here that it was a special order for a 3 speed on the column to be installed on a convertible.

I agree with Kurt. A 3 on the tree is fairly rare because even the base 6 cars were usually ordered with the optional Powerglide automatic transmission. Two things you normally see on low option cars are Powerglide and AM radio. Interesting that this one got a tinted windshield, AM radio with the rear speaker, the exterior molding group and deluxe seat belts! Kind of a strange combination of options for a base car.

No, the three speed manual transmission with the column shift was standard. Anything else would have been optional.

I think most dealers would point out that M11 floor shift was only $10. So either M11 or powerglide was frequently optioned.

They spent the $40 for style trim and $20 for tinted windshield, but were OK with the shifter (or didn't realize what they ordered). Lots of people grew up with 3 on the tree, so it wasn't an unsellable combo. But would be interesting to know if the dealer or a customer ordered it.
