Right hook Ca­maro

Australian Muscle Car - - Muscle Maniac -

AMC reader Ja­son Chap­lin sent us the im­ages here from Aus­tralian Mo­tor Man­ual’s Oc­to­ber 1967 is­sue of the Chev Ca­maros of­fered by Mel­bourne dealer Bill Pater­son Mo­tors.

Note that the test car pro­vided to the magazine for a test drive is right-hand drive, as is the ex­am­ple in Pat­ter­son’s ad­ver­tise­ment in the same is­sue.

This had Ja­son flick­ing to the story within that is­sue to learn more about the RHD Ca­maros of­fered by the deal­er­ship, but his cu­rios­ity was left un­quenched.

“The story is just a re­port on the ac­tual car with very few Aussie men­tions other than it hav­ing a front lam­i­nated win­dow handy for Aus­tralian con­di­tions,” Ja­son writes. “Price as tested and op­tioned up was $7600. I’m keen to learn more about these cars, where they were con­verted, how many were sold and if any sur­vive today?” All good ques­tions, Ja­son! Can any read­ers fill in the gaps? Bet­ter still, any­one got a Patto Ca­maro?
