Designed to compete with the Ford Mustang, the original Chevrolet Camaro was introduced in the fall of 1966 for the 1967 model year, and was based on the GM F-body platform. This first-generation 1967 Camaro RS/SS Convertible has been refinished in Capri Cream with a black convertible top over a black vinyl and grey velour interior. It is reported to have been built at the Van Nuys, CA assembly plant, spent time in Mexico from 1967 to 1978, became part of a private collection for 41 years in a controlled environment, and recently spent the past year becoming road-ready. Factory equipped with the optional RS Appearance Package and SS Performance Package, this Camaro Convertible is now being offered for auction by its seller out of Texas.
