Did you see the '67 RS Convertible (Butternut Yellow) that went for $80k last night? I don't think it even had the original 327 engine. I understand the BJ effect on prices, but $80k for this car??? 

I have not paid much attention to Camaro prices in the last few years - do I need to go to the garage and give my neglected '67 a big hug??

They use the 'restored' term pertty loosely...  given a '327/275 hp engine'.... with 'high output' aluminum intake

It obviously isn't numbers matching... "Date code correct engine" Huh   Talk about getting caught up in the atmosphere and getting hosed!

Guess that Ford Sticker was right all along.  Grin

Must have been some sort of time-space anomaly, back to around 2005 or 2006.  That underhood shot has me doing face-palms.

Nice car but I think somebody had been huffing or sniffing the glue.

 My restored 67 SS conv has this attractive color combo.

 Hmmm...must be a rare radio in that too.
Sometimes I wonder how many times the so called *winning* buyer is actually a rep of BJ that is bidding to force the price up artificially but in some cases not having a real legit buyer topping it to take it away. Just an observation.

I highly doubt that due to they would have far too much to lose then gain.
Wow, just cannot believe that car brought that much. Incredible..... Seller is happy I bet:)

In terms of date correct - I also have a 67 RS Convertible with a 327/210 hp engine.  Unless you have an SS with the 350 or 396 or a Z-28, you did not get a VIN number stamped on the block.  So basically, you can not have a numbers matching 327 '67 Camaro....only a date correct.

I would think a car with numbers matching 327/210 backed up with the protecto plate would be numbers matching.

Yup...my bad...here's the beef;

Drivetrain Partial VIN's
 The partial VIN, e.g. 19N512345, was stamped by the vehicle assembly plant on the engine and on the transmission on the engine dress line.
 Engines
For most Chevrolets, the partial VIN was stamped on the engine pad near the engine assembly code.
 
On 1967 Camaros, generally only the Z28 and SS engines had the partial VIN's stamped. In 1967, this code consists of the sixth through the thirteen characters of the full VIN, e.g. 7N123456.


However, it does say "generally" so I agree with RAfbody; If ever there was a good reason to have a POP, this is it.

Ok everybody - here is your big chance. I'll sell my 1967 Camaro SS350 Convert (Butternut Yellow/Black Int-Top), with a numbers matching PT (3 spd manual), 70k original miles, power disc brakes, wood wheel, fold down rear seat, 4-ply redstripes, restored to original condiition, same owner since 1979 - for $75k OTD, no 10% buyer fees here.

Sounds like a bargain compared to this one!!! 

(I was thinking the 67 RS Conv was around a $30-35k car at best, right??)

In my 20 minutes of watching last night a car was "sold" at 105,000. But knocked off to the back bidder at 103, if I remember right. That tells me either the owner was bidding or a BJ rep as was suggested. Too may games to play!

I record the show and fast forward to the good stuff.

Wish I could have seen these two...

ZL1 - 410K
L78 - 135K

'54 300SL - 2M - I saw one these at a show in Santa Fe a couple years ago. Couldn't take my eyes off of it. Truly a work of art!

I do the same thing.....fast forward past all the customs.........

The ZL1 was shown on TV.  They spent a lot of time on it....Took a while to get up to the price.
