This is a 1967 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS Convertible with the “Code 4K” 396/375 HP numbers matching engine and four speed manual transmission. Authorities state that 12 convertibles with this engine were produced and only about half have the desirable factory four-speed manual transmission with a Hurst shifter. Of the handful built, most were destined to a fate of drag racing and met with an early demise. It is estimated that perhaps only two or three of these high performance convertibles remain extant.
This example is painted White with Blue interior and has been enhance with Indy 500 decals with the Blue Rally stripe. Although this was not an official pace car, it was ordered to replicate a Indy 500 pace car, presumably by a Chevrolet dealer.
This car has an original 97,000 miles and has been cared for throughout the years. There is little to no rust. The car was enhanced with a 10 Bolt 4:11 posi track and sit confidently on 15 inch Rally Wheels. Power steering and brakes make it as easy to drive as a new car- except with massive power and great looks! The original numbers matching engine was professionally rebuilt by a qualified engineer.
The car runs and drives like a dream. It starts easy and every time. It has been regularly driven about 1,000 miles a year without fail. The original protecto plate and owner’s manual are included with the car.[youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=SNmgDPjqRFI[/youtube]
