Hemmings Find of the Day – 1967 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28
So not only is this 1967 Chevrolet Camaro for sale on Hemmings.com an authentic Z/28 still powered by its original and highly modified engine, it also raced fairly successfully in Trans-Am and appears ready to hit the track again for some vintage racing action. From the seller’s description:
Ordered by Heinrich Chevy-Land in Rochester, New York, and driven by Watkins Glen Walk of Fame inductee Gary Morgan, this 1967 Camaro is the 17th pre-production Z-28 built to kick off Chevrolet’s official SCCA Trans-Am racing program. During its three years with Morgan at the wheel, the car set both 1967 and 1968 Watkins Glen speed records, collected 11 victories and two second place finishes, claimed an SCCA Area 11 A-Sedan championship and was bestowed with 4th place honors in the Finger Lakes Region SCCA Northeast Division. As is often the case with successful motorsports campaigns, major publicity led to major sponsorship, and this historic F1 eventually headlined a trio of TV commercials which aired during both the 1968 presidential debate and the 1969 Apollo 11 moon landing. Today authenticated by both Gary Morgan and well-known Camaro authority Jerry MacNeish, it’s a 100% correct restoration of a racing icon that is believed to be the only complete pre-production SCCA Z-28 ever publicly displayed.
