1967 SS Under Restoration
I purchased this car in summer of 2015. It was purchased new at Rowe Chevrolet-Buick in Louisburg, NC. I have all the documentation with the car. Sales contract, window sticker, POP, original title etc.. The prior owner purchased the car from the original owner and began a body off restoration. New NOS drivers quarter, New trunk, Rt. Quarter, rear panel and rear window panel were installed by Hopkins in Georgia (excellent work). I just now got to where I had time to finish the car. It is now in the paint shop and as of the time I am typing this the front fenders and both doors are in paint and the hood and trunk lid will be painted this week.
Car is a true original all number matching 49543 mile car. The car sat in a shed with the rear exposed to the elements, thus rotting the rear of the car. The Alternator, Starter, Water Pump, and Carburetor had been changed when the prior owner began the restoration. I have located the correct dated Starter, Water Pump, and Alternator. I am still looking for a Jan. 1967 Quadrajet for manual transmission. Also missing is a 3 speed shifter with a bench seat handle, I have aquired a NOS Hurst Syncro Loc 3 speed shifterr still in the original box, I plan to use this for now. From evidence in the floor it appears a different shifter boot was installed making me question if the owner had not added an aftermarket shifter at some point. I have owned several 67's thru the years. I have aquired all NOS Chrome and emblems for this car with the exception of a trunk lid moulding. This included the outer window fuzzies and NOS wheel covers.
There are a few details that are incorrect that will need to be corrected, these will be addressed.
I'll keep you guys updated of the progress as we progress.
