German 1967 Camaro
« on: February 03, 2023, 03:47:11 AM »


This is my German 1967 Camaro. It is an enigma wrapped in a contradiction.
1. There isn’t the American style VIN on the door frame which isn’t uncommon for European cars.
2. It is a 4P car which in this case meant an L30/M20 car. 327hp with 4bbl, 4 speed, and 12 bolt rear with single traction bar.
3. It has the 200kph speedometer with Deluxe interior and console gauges
4. The body was originally from Norwood Ohio. The original engine on the German papers is a KL Engine which should be an impala 327.
The car was restored as an SS because of the 4P on the trim tag but it was actually an L30/M20. It spent its life as a race car so when I got it in 1986 it was basically a shell full of dreams.
5. There are front marker lamps. These were not on the American 1967 Camaro

Looking forward to pics. If you can't get them to post, send to me and I can try to post. But don't send a huge amount in one message. Several messages are better.

Nice looking car! Judging from your plate, you in Rush County? I'm south of Andersonville.

Some background on Christopher's car - it was sold new in the US and immediately exported, homologated to German specs and registered August 67. One of the few privately exported cars.

Nice car!

Hi,

greetings from very close to you. I live between Oppenheim and Alzey ;-)

I love the before pics with the Opel Manta/Ascona A widebodykit. Very unique ;-)

Would be interested to know how you got those rims legalized in Germany.


regards
Matthias
