The Camaro came to be in 1967 as one of the most promising models ever released by Chevrolet, proposing a lineup that had a little something for everybody.
The base Camaro was the best choice if your only interest was getting a fancy ride to the supermarket. Next in line was the RS, which was supposed to provide a sportier experience, followed by the SS with even more upgrades. The icing on the cake was the Z28, whose production was limited to only 602 units of a total output of close to 221,000 Camaros.

Chevrolet also allowed customers to order both the RS and SS packages, giving birth to the Camaro RS/SS. One is right here, in a condition that could make a grown man cry.

The Camaro is toasted, and eBay seller wvwvvw claims the culprit is a fire that burned down the garage where the vehicle was sleeping. The body exhibits a horrible shape, but the engine surprisingly survived, with the owner claiming the mill "is likely OK."

You'll have to check this out in person, especially because a fire that burns down a whole building is likely to cause massive damage to every single piece of a car.

The 350 V8 under the hood is the matching-numbers unit paired with a 4-speed transmission.

The owner says the Camaro's main selling point is the lineup of "great parts that can be swapped onto your base model car," including Wilwood front disc brakes, headers, and dual exhausts. They all survived the fire that wrecked the rest of the car and could turn a base Camaro into an upgraded model/head-turning machine.

Saving the Camaro and bringing it back to the road will be a challenging job, even for skilled restorers, especially because the body is wrecked. As a result, your next best option is using this RS/SS convertible as a donor for another Camaro – if you can find another 1967 RS/SS, it'd be a perfect match.

The starting bid is set at $2,500, but the owner has also enabled a reserve, and it's unclear how high the offers must go to unlock it. An RS/SS is an intriguing project, but considering its condition, this convertible shouldn't cost more than the starting bid.

It could also be why nobody entered the race to buy the Camaro. The seller claims they would take the Camaro apart and sell it for parts if nobody buys the full car at the current auction. If you want to see it in person, you must travel to Norfolk, Massachusetts, and given its shape, you'll have to bring a trailer to take it home. The owner has unlocked the wheels and the steering wheel, so it rolls freely to get on a trailer.
