I'd say it's pretty rare.  I've seen 2 Royal Plum Camaros ever.  Both were plain Jane 6 cyl.  cars.   I would put it back to stock if I were you.  I have no idea of its' value.

I believe CRG says only about 3% were plum. Today it seems to be a  color thats liked more than back then. There are a lot of late model cars close to that color today The royal plum L78 car on CRG home page is mine

666 I have a body shop and had the paint made to match my cowl cheeks under the fender that were like new. I also had a spare plum rim that was like nos and it matched the cheeks too. It is PPG DBC base. If you just give the paint store the M code  and have them mix the paint the color will be wrong. Thats why the all look different. Most orig. colors mixed with todays formulas don't match.

...I know a local guy near me, ...has a '67 RS/SS painted in black primer, ...just a hot rod so to speak. As per the tag, ...the car is indeed an RS/SS 350, ...Royal Plum 4sp (deluxe parchement interior).  He has no plans to go original, ...but I have to tell ya', ...if you did consider going back to original? ...I would definitely go with the Plum, ...very cool color...

I have only seen one in person and I love the color.  If you are willing to do the work, it is never wrong to go back original, especially this one.  Definitely a very rare color.  My 67 Vert has the blue top option and although a white top might look better I want to keep the rare options alive.

666

I have a 67 Royal Plum with a White Vinyl roof SS350 that is non-numbers matching as is yours. I had been told when the market was a bit higher than what it is now,that my car would bring anywhere from $28K to $33k if I was to sell it at that time.

Not to be disheartening, but if you don't have the "original numbers matching engine, tranny and 12 bolt rearend the way prices are going now, you may end having more dollars put in the car than what it is worth.

Just my opinion and best of luck on your decision!!!!!!!!!
