Sounds just like one I had. Yeah, I'm a Ford guy, but like most 60's Chevy's too. Mine was a 283, Glide, bench seat hardtop car. My wife's Great Uncle bought it new, his son drove it as his first car, then he let it sit about ten years and the tin termites got to it. When I got it, the trunk floor was an old sign!
I traded it for a VW dune buggy, what an idiot I was!

Always wanted a first gen Camaro, decent ones now are out of my price range, projects are mostly a vin on a rusty tub.

Brings back memories of my youth when these cars were new.
Two older brothers in our neighborhood when I was growing up were real gear heads. The older of the two had a 68(I believe) version of the Camaro. And his slightly younger brother had a 67 Chevelle with a built to the gills 396 in it. You practically had to tow start it the cam was so radical. I can still remember waking up in the summer to the sounds of him cranking that beast over. And when it lit up every window on the block would rattle. The older brother died when he wrapped his Camaro around a cement over pass support.. We tried to talk his mom into letting us salvage the engine from that car but she had it crushed.

Well I replaced the rear frame rails, trunk pan, torque boxes, shackles, bushings, floor pans under rear seat and fixed some other rotted spots. Also replaced the mono springs with 3 leaf replacements and got gas tank and tires back on to bring it back to the house, but couldnít get the rear brakes to work. Going to replace master cylinder and fuel and rear brake line. Both lines have about 3 splices in each of them. Sorry about the one pic being upside down. Donít know why it keeps showing up like that. I need a break!!! The 66 elcamino is my buddies. Heís putting floor pans in it now.
