Featured Car - Dave Johnson's 67

In Dave's words: "Here are photos of my Butternut Yellow convertible (black top) with the Deluxe Turquoise interior. It has been in the family since October 1968. I'm currently restoring the car, hopefully will be finished sometime this spring. Here are some pre restoration photos. The underside of the car was pretty rotted out, even though it cleaned up well, as these photos attest. I originally came with a 230ci 6 cylinder but after that died many years ago I put a 350 in it (and I added the flags on the front fender at that time). Unfortunately I no longer have the original engine so I'm putting another period correct 6 cylinder back in it as part of the restoration. I've read in a Camaro book where only 715 '67 Camaro Convertibles came with both the 230ci 6 cylinder engine and the deluxe interior. The Turquoise interior makes it even that more rare/unusual. Over all the years it's been in the family I've never once seen another one with the same color scheme; although they did make them. I have the Protect-O-Plate and paperwork on the car. It was an early '67; delivered in Syracuse, NY during October 1966."
