1967 Chevrolet Chevelle Additional Info:

My name is Oliver and I've decided to list my all time favorite car for sale. I'm currently in the middle of a frame off restoration on my 1955 Chevy Second Series Truck and looking at working overseas in the next few months as a military contractor. I just do not have time to enjoy the Chevelle and it should go to someone who can enjoy it. I would like to start off by saying that I have sold a few of my personal vehicles on ebay in the past 10 years and have always had 100% positive transactions. I take pride in my vehicles and want to make sure the new caretaker will be as happy as I was when I purchased the car. I have owned this 67 Chevelle SS for a few years now. The car is stunning in its Emerald Turquoise/Turquoise color combo. It is a lifelong Washington car that is one of the best surviving 1967 Chevelle Super Sport examples I have ever seen. It has never been restored or rebuilt; just maintained over the years. I have extensive documentation to go with the car including the protecto plate, original sales contract, maintenance receipts, owners manual, broadcast sheet, delivery checklist, and options booklet. Believed to be 75k original miles. Enjoy the over 60 Pictures below.
This Chevelle is a very early production car that was delivered on October 5th, 1966 to Sevenich Motor Company in Everett, Washington. The VIN ends in 02594 and from my research was built during one of the first week of production at the Kansas City Plant. Therefore this car carries many leftover date coded 1966 parts such as the carburetor, exhaust manifolds, master cylinder etc. The car was used as a dealer executive car from its delivery in October 1966-April 1967, when it was sold to Mr. Richard L. Peterson on April 29th, 1967. Mr. Peterson traded in a 1961 Ford Station Wagon for a trade in value of $500 plus $500 down, and paid $3021.59 for this beauty. Mr. Peterson would own the car through the mid 1990's. I have several receipts for tires, exhaust, registrations etc. from over the years. The original protecto plate and sales contract are in mint preserved condition. Unbelievable documentation you just don't see on any 50 year old vehicle, let alone a 1967 Chevelle SS. I purchased the car a few years ago in the Seattle area. It was sitting in a garage and the previous owner had lost interest in it. He originally purchased it in the late 1990's. While at his kids soccer game, one of the other dads drove up in the Chevelle. He asked him about it and he said he had just purchased it from the original owner. The gentleman I purchased the Chevelle from told him he had to have it and to give him a call if he ever wanted to sell it. Eventually he got the call and owned it up until I purchased it.
Engine/Transmission/RearThe Chevelle retains its original numbers matching drivetrain. The engine has never been out of the car and has never been rebuilt. I took the car to a local 66/67 Chevelle expert and he verified the exhaust manifolds, valve covers, carburetor, master cylinder, intake manifold, cylinder heads, radiator etc. were all date coded original and correct. The car is equipped with an automatic 2 speed powerglide transmission with factory floor shifter. Original non posi 12 bolt rear end is present as well. The car is a fun driver. I drive it at least one a week and it drives like only an unrestored survivor drives. I've had several frame off restored cars but, they don't compare to driving an original car. The steering is fairly tight and it goes down the road straight with little to no play in the steering. Brakes are good. I replaced the master cylinder as the old one was leaking. The original date coded master cylinder will come with the car. The only thing not original in the engine compartment is the HEI distributor. However, I do have the original distributor which comes with the car and a set of reproduction original date coded plug wires that will come with the car. The HEI was installed in the 1990's for driveability. Last year I also replaced the heater core as the original finally developed a leak after 50 years. I saved the original heater core and it will be included as well. In 2014 the car developed an exhaust leak from the passenger side exhaust manifold at the heat riser. I had Austin Pro Max, a staple in here in Tacoma, replace the full exhaust system from manifolds back. I had them replicate the original exhaust in form and sound as close as possible. I also replaced the battery cables with correct dated reproductions. I also replaced the battery and added a reproduction cover. All fluids were flushed and changed by me. My goal when I got this car was to keep the car in as close to survivor condition as possible, while still being able to cruise it all over the beautiful Northwest. That being said it does leak, smoke a bit on start up and drives like a 50 year old classic car. However, I would not hesitate to jump in it today and take it for a cruise all the way down the coast.
This Chevelle came with my favorite color for a 67 Chevelle, Emerald Turquoise. Just a beautiful color. Amazingly, this Chevelle retains 95% of its original paint. The only reason I say 95% is I did not personally own the car for 50 years, so I cannot speak to what someone has previously done. That being said everything clearly looks like original paint but, the rear panel above the truck has faded differently than the trunk lid (I've been told that the metal or primer used from the factory was different on the shell than the bolt on components). Also, I believe the passenger door is a bit "shinier" than the rest of the car but, still looks older. It may have just faded differently from how it was stored or maybe polished at one time. I was undecided on having the car detailed when I bought it and decided against it. I actually have never even washed the car. I did wax a small part of the passenger fender and I think a professional detailer could do a great job on this paint if you decided to go that route. I found that the car in this condition attracts far more attention at car shows and grocery store parking lots than any restored car I've ever owned. People walk past frame off catalog car restorations to look at this one every time. The car was garage stored since new and is extremely solid for a 50 year old muscle car. I have been all over the car and the only rust I've found is a small bit behind the drivers side rear tire. It is just starting and when I bought the car I found the plug on the inner panel had debris such as leaves and water in there. I removed the plug and cleaned the area out to prevent any further rusting issues. I would not repair or repaint the area as it is hard to see unless you bend down. The only other are worth mentioning is the passenger front fender below the cross flag emblem has a few spots of what looks like surface rust. Also, at some point the side black stripes were painted on due to the lack of availability of reproductions at the time. I was told it was done in the early 90's before it was sold by the original owner and they are spot on. If desired you could have them removed as they're thinning out anyway. The floors, trunk, rear window area, front window area, doors, hood, cowl, fenders, doors, door jambs are all rust free and solid. I would say the vinyl top has been replaced just because it looks too good to me, however I do not know how to tell. All the glass is original and nice. Chrome trim is all there and in good shape for its age. No funky spray paint underneath in the engine compartment. It is all as it left the factory. Obviously all the interior paint is original as well. When I got the car it had the original trunk mat in it and there was surface rust between the mat and floor (I had this happen on a restored car after 6 months). I contemplated with leaving it but, ultimately decided to preserve the car for the next 50 years, it would be best to respray the trunk and leave the mat out so that's what I did. The trunk retains its original spare 14x6 6A3 wheel and bumper jack.
Theinterior is in all original condition. Once again this is an area I did not want to mess with. Sitting inside this car is like being transported back in time. Nothing has been changed. Equipped with tilt steering column, gauges, bucket seats, and console. The gauges are operational minus the clock. Fuel gauge is accurate, temperature gauge and oil pressure gauges are also accurate. The carpet, dash pad, door panels, rear seat, bucket seats and headliner are all original. I believe there is one hairline crack that developed on the dash pad after my ownership. The front seats both have wear but, I would not recover them as that would ruin the originality of the car. The carpet has also faded but, once again its 50 years old and I would not replace it. The headliner has a small hole the size of a quarter near the drivers side roof rail. It is not sagging or torn so, once again I would not touch it as you don't see it easily. The radio is not working, honestly may be a fuse as I've never looked. Clock also does not work but, the lights in the console do work! All windows roll up and down like butter. Doors open and close like new. No sag. Locks work excellent. Heat works excellent as I just replaced the heater core last year as previously mentioned. I believe I have what are the original keys for the car as well.
I wanted a bit of a stout look so, I had custom made 15 inch steel wheels made for the car and had them painted in emerald turquoise with original 1967 dog dish caps. These are not included with the sale of the car. The car will come with its original 14x6 6A3 wheels and original hubcaps that are extremely hard to find. Hubcaps have a few dings. That being said if the high bidder wants both sets of wheels we may be able to work that out but, as of now I want to keep the aftermarket wheels. Plus, if you are having the car shipped the shipper would have to agree to take an extra set of wheels.
In Closing
I do have a classic car loan out through my bank which is USAA (82nd Airborne Division Veteran). It took a significant amount of money to purchase this car from the previous owner and I didn't want to tie up that much cash. I've sold other vehicles that I had loans on through USAA and as soon as I receive payment in full, I will pay the car off. They email me a payoff letter, which I provide to the winning bidder with a bill of sale and you can register the car right away. Last vehicle I sold was my Dodge Ram last year and I received the title in two weeks which I will mail via priority mail to the winning bidder. Car is currently registered with lifelong antique vehicle Washington plates. The car is currently insured and garaged at my home so, winning bidder is welcome to store it here for up to a month. I can also help find a transporter if need be. I know I will never find another 67 SS in this original shape with this amount of documentation (that you can't buy out of a restoration catalog no matter how much you spend). I just hope it goes to the right home where it will be preserved. This car should really be featured in Hemmings Muscle Machines.
