found this  photo

The Chevy Show truck semi trailer can be seen in the back

 I think it's from Canada because I looked up "cine sphere 3" and says .....

"It's Expo 1967 in Montreal Canada and multi-screen film presentations are the rage of the renowned international fair.  Canadian entrepreneurs and filmmakers Graeme Ferguson, Roman Kroitor, and Robert Kerr actually produced some of the films being shown, but made a decision to create a single projector/screen motion picture system which would equal or surpass the grandeur of the cumbersome multi-camera systems.  IMAX® corporation was born."

I have seen special paint orange 1968 Camaros with orange rally wheels but I never saw a 1967

don't know if this is original paint but the car looks new

looks like an SS RS 396

I've never seen or heard of 'special paint' applying to Rallye Wheels... ??  so my suspicion is that the wheels are/were painted orange by the owner at some point.

I don't know if it has been documented that the wheels were painted with the special paint color on Camaros.
I think they may have been.

I know of a 1968 Z/28 special paint orange that was bought new with the 5 rally wheels painted orange

Chevelles come with a nice build sheet and have seen special paint with the wheels painted and it is documented on the build sheet

There are special paint taxi police fire military etc cars and trucks and some came with the small hub caps and the wheels were same color as the car

here is a 67 SS 350 convertible full wheel covers
looks to be an early car with no 350 emblem under the Camaro fender emblem

Cool. It's even got orange stripe tires instead of the normal red stripe tires.

Unless, of course, the car is really red and appears orange because it's an old faded photograph that has been scanned and then viewed on a computer monitor.
