About 700,000 Camaros were built from 1967 to 1969. The first-generation Camaro has won a die-hard following and has become an iconic performance car. Camaros in excellent condition command very high prices, so many owners are compelled to perform a professional-grade original restoration. Since these cars are about 40 years old, many cars need second or third restorations, and as time goes by, these cars will continue to appreciate and require restoration. That's where How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969 comes in. While some owners can afford to pay shops to perform a 100-point restoration for show car competition, many owners want to perform a faithful, detailed restoration themselves, so the car maintains its collector value and use it as a fun weekend driver. This book will serve those owners.

A lead title in our Restoration Series, How to Restore Your Camaro 1967-1969 will provide in-depth, hands-on information and photography for restoring these popular and historically significant cars. It covers all aspects of restoration, including engines and drivelines, bodywork, interior and trim, suspension, brakes, chassis, and steering for the first-generation Camaros. Organization and planning will be covered, so restorers can stay on task. Disassembly, inspection, and sourcing the best parts will also be covered. This volume will deliver a concise and revealing overview of each subject area and shows the most critical aspects of the restoration process with sequential step-by-step photos and detailed captions. The most efficient techniques and best products for returning each component to like-new condition will be covered. With this information, owners will be able to determine what's involved in each step of the restoration and decide whether to perform the work themselves or outsource it to a professional shop. Color step-by-step how-to information on Camaro restoration has never been offered in a package like this before. Finally, Camaro owners have the book they need.
