Got it, that was really part of the original question. Was there such a thing or is my information/memory less than good. Thanks, I'm still gonna track the car down to find out what it is. On a 67 the data plate should give me the skinny right?

Yup. Get a pic of the tag and the VIN and that will tell us a lot. :)

The closest thing to a Super Stock Camaro would be a car that was bought new to make a race car.
for example the Grumpy Jenkins 67 Super Stock Camaro was said to be 375 hp no radio no heater 4:88 or 4:56 gear 4 speed car.

Anyone have a picture of the trim tag on this car?
I always wonder if there was a dash or anything on the trim tag to show a special order.

Saw this car at Carlise but the hood was closed. I talked to the Grump about it but he didn't want to open the hood because the owner was not there. He said he sent a guy to pick it up at Norwood and drive it to PA. and the driver was not too happy about driving it home.

There were other 67 Camaros that were bought for drag or road racing but some were just bought off the lot and not pre-ordered.

Went by the guys shop today, he still has the car still claims its a 375 horse 327 car, I didn't express any knowledge to the contrary. It is at his other shop and I can look a it all I want and get photos of whatever. I may be able to go Saturday depending on what I have going with Cody's baseball. I post info when I can.

Here's the only 375hp 327 Chevy ever made, and it was only available in the '64-'65 Corvette. Photo is a '63, but '64-'65 were similar.

Hopefully, I will get my eyes and a camera on it Saturday and its origin will be clearer. It is possible that he swapped it in when new or even bought it from a dealer or individual who did, or its a 275 horse and he is remembering wrong. Oh well it will be fun to crawl over it either way.

Went and looked at the Camaro today, it is now a gutted, mostly aluminum pro-comp car. Its been back halfed, rack and pinion, frame horns cut, and lexan, nothing left of the original firewall much less the tag. Oh well that history is lost, he contend it was a 375 327, I didn't tell him otherwise.
