This month I wanted to show you an all original Camaro I found. I threw in a couple more Pony Cars to round it out.
1968 Chevrolet Camaro - $19,500
Description: We have all heard the stories of the little old lady who had an old collectible car parked in the barn and when she passed away the family was amazed at what they found. Well, this story fits pretty closely to that one. Here we have a 1968 Camaro with 91k original miles completely matching numbers with the original paint, the original interior, the original everything. This is an original Texas owned car. This Camaro runs great with a 327 V8 and a 3sp manual transmission. This car would make a great affordable addition to any authentic collection or a fantastic pallet for a ground up restoration. The body and frame are free from rust. You may see some surface rust on the exhaust system and drive line, but the frame, floor pans, and body have no signs of rust.

Comments: Let's start the new year off with an all original... right down to the paint... Camaro. Too bad it is not a 69. I love plain original cars like this.
1967 Ford Mustang Coupe - $11,900
Description: One owner since new. Purchased in Albany California July 1967 and driven ever since by the same lady here in western Washington. Clearwater aqua with black interior. Sport sprint package, 289 2v, automatic transmission, power steering, am radio, tinted glass and deluxe seat belts. Major service and rebuild receipts with purchase.

Comments: It's hard to find a lot of low mileage, one owner cars. This was handy at the time I found the Camaro above. This could make a good farther and son project cars. Perfectly drivable as we clean it up.

Description: You are viewing and 1971 Pontiac Firebird. This car is loaded with options great running 350, power windows, AC, power disc brakes, power steering, Triple black, bucket seats with console, 17 inch TT wheels, and more.

Comments: I will round out this month's cars with a Pontiac Pony car. Though not a low mileage one owner cars, this one is the one I want to drive. It already has a nice set of wheels that give it a great look, and it has air conditioning. I could see making this my daily driver.
