Footnotes

  • Ford having created the ‘pony car’ class in 1964 with the introduction of the sensational Mustang, it was only going to be a matter of time before all the other major US manufacturers tried to grab a slice of this extremely lucrative new market sector. When Chevrolet climbed aboard the bandwagon, it would be with a car destined to become as iconic as its Dearborn rival – the Camaro. Introduced for 1967, the Camaro closely followed the Mustang’s successful formula, being almost identical in size though more curvaceously styled. The initial engine options consisted of a 230ci (3.8-litre) inline six or 327ci (5.4-litre) V8. A three-speed manual gearbox was standard, with heavy-duty, four-speed and automatic transmissions the alternatives. Like the Mustang, the Camaro was blessed with an generous options list that enabled customers to personalise their cars, a situation that has resulted in no two being exactly alike. Chevrolet left the Camaro pretty much unchanged for 1968 before engaging in a major re-styling exercise for ’69 that saw it re-emerge both longer and lower. As before, the car was available as a coupé or convertible.
    Built originally in left-hand drive configuration, this beautiful Camaro convertible was purchased in the USA in the early 1980s by an Australian and shipped to Australia where it was converted to right-hand drive. Purchased by the current vendor in the mid-1990s, the car has been subjected to an extensive ‘last nut and bolt’ restoration, which included the installation of a new V8 engine and reconditioned automatic gearbox. Attention to detail is superb. The electric hood is reported as working correctly and during a short road test the car performed without fault, its sports suspension affording European-style ride quality. Representing a rare opportunity to acquire an iconic 1960s American ‘muscle car’ with the convenience of right-hand drive, the vehicle is presented in perfect condition throughout and offered with restoration invoices, current MoT and Swansea V5.
