I'd call that cleaning and repair.. not restoration!   Yes, cleaning and functional repair *almost always* makes sense... but restoration is VERY expensive...

Here is my 1956 chevy pickup I did a frame off, bare metal restoration/resto mod. Shaved firewall, one piece windows, shaved all emblems and custom interior. Me and my father ( I did most of the work and the patina paint job ) restored this truck in 7 months. I also took a couple months off working on it when I moved. I sold it for 16k (stock suspension). It can be done :)

Well, it's all in how one man or a group will define "restore", "restored" or "restoration". I think those words are used carefully around here.  :)

Thanks, for posting your truck story. While it is a nice resto, guys are doing this all the time, AND making money doing it. Of coarse you have to buy a initial solid vehicle, and know how much you can turn it for when your done. The basis for the TV shows that do this in an hour and portray a couple days work (not really reality IMO) is guys that are able to do this in a few months time.
I agree and it continues to happen.
The candidates are out there waiting to be "cleaned up". ;)

The word 'restored' to me has always meant 'returned to original factory fresh condition, in function, appearance, and parts'..  all original and 'as new'...  I think most auto enthusiasts embrace this or a very similar definition.    'Restified', 'rebuilt', etc..  all have totally different meanings.

I knew a guy that had a similar '67 vert, bright blue, 6 Cyl, don't remember the transmission but it had NO options to speak of.  It was an early '67 pilot run car. One of the first Camaros ever built. Cool car but not particularly valuable over any other original base trim level '67 Vert.  This one was rusty and would have needed a LOT of work and cash to make it right.  I would love to know if it was still around.

Can you post the VIN or email it to me?
What's the engine code (next to the distributor)?
Thanks!

Convertible6,

The engine code is stamped on the machined pad on the engine block next to the distributor.  The location of the engine code stamp is shown in the drawings in the following link...

Thanks for the info.
If you find the stamped codes on the axle and trans, I'd be interested in those too. No hurry. :)
Should look great, esp that color!

He's the man!
He found the plate and when he sent the picture to me, I matched it up to your car. If you hadn't posted here, I wouldn't have been able to connect the dots.
Lucky day for you. :)

When you get a chance, can you look at: http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=11917.0
