Our second featured Camaro this week is another one from 1967, which, let's face it, was a good year for Camaros. This '67 Camaro SS 396 was purchased for $800 back in 1986 and it's been a personal project of Flickr member BinCali ever since. It was wasting away in a car port that BinCali passed on his way to work every day until that fateful day twenty years ago when he struck up a conversation with the owner that lead to the title transfer. In the 20 years BinCali has owned the Camaro, he's stripped it down to "every last nut bolt," performing all the work on it himself except the paint. The 396 motor actually displaces 402ci now, while BinCali has worked to restore other items of the car, like the interior and the exhaust, to their original factory specs. As if the Camaro weren't enough to impress this crowd, the car in the background is an ultra rare right-hand drive 1971 Holden Monaro GTS, one of about five in the United States. It makes us wonder what else is in BinCali's garage.

Follow the jump for more pics and BinCali's complete list of mods.

This week we're choosing a Camaro each day for the RR of the Day feature, and we need everyone who owns a Camaro to submit his or her ride. We want to make sure all five days are filled with interesting F-bodies, and to do that we need a great group of them from which to choose. At the moment, it looks like we might not be able to fill the week, so help us do just that by submitting your Camaro or encouraging your friends to submit theirs. Just follow the jump to find instructions on how to submit your ride.

Modification list:
  • 396 (now displacing about 402CI)
  • Muncie M-21 - replaced linkage with a Hurst unit
  • 12 Bolt 3.42 Rear End
  • Restored interior to original specs
  • Has factory gauges (Tach and console)
  • Disc brakes front, drums rear (next on the to-do list)
  • Reproduction chambered exhaust system (sounds excellent!)


How to submit to RR of the Day:
Create a
Flickr account if you don't already have one. Search for and join the group called 'Autoblog RR of the Day'. Upload up to three photos of your ride to your own account at a size no larger than 450 pixels wide if possible and include as much information about it and yourself as possible. Even if your ride is sweet, it will not be chosen if there's not a lot of info accompanying it. Click on each photo and just above the picture it will say "Send to group". Click that and select the Autoblog group. You're done, that's it!

      I want to see pictures of the Holden, though if you hadn't mentioned it, most people would have probably assumed it was a Chevelle.

      Also, there's only one rear-view mirror, and it's on the right.

      fantastic car.
      no getting the Holden comments.why is that not a chevelle?

      7,
      for one, the windshield wipers face the "wrong" way, so it's not a Chevelle. Plus, I'm not a muscle car historian, but see grille, I've never heard of a "GTS" designation for a Chevelle. Read the article.

      Bitchn' Camaro! (That should be this week's theme song)
      • 8 Years Ago
      The only thing that Holden has in common with any Chevelle is that a GM company built it. The only Holden to be based on any Chev was the first Holden. And that was a small car proto Chevvy never used.

      I have always loved the first generation muscle cars. I want one.

      God at Hot August Nights, you see camaros and mustangs so much, that unless they are a ZL1 or EPshelby, nothing's exciting. This camaro is boring...

      ...however, I gotta admit I love Australian muscle, specially the Falcons, Chrysler Valiant Chargers, and Monaros 'specially the HQs.
