Default Bob Eriksen Chevrolet - Milan, IL

I recently purchased a 1967 Camaro RS/SS 396 project - L35/M40 car - Tahoe Turquoise with deluxe black interior. The NCRS report came back to being produced July 7, 1967 and delivered to Bob Eriksen Chevrolet.

I did some searching around and found this was quite the dealership. Some of the cars they sold include a 1965 Chevelle Z16, 1967 Camaro Z28, 1967 Corvette L71, 1970 Yenko deuce Nova. Probably also a lot of other performance cars.

Does anyone have knowledge of this dealership having any connections to Yenko, Nickey, Span, Inc or Dick Harrell?

This car is in the 124377N248xxx range and has Pontiac rally wheels on the front. I have no idea how long they have been with the car. Rear wheels are 8 inch wide Chevelle SS type wheels. Regular SS hood. No factory tach but signs that there was one strapped to the steering column in the past.

Any help you can provide will be appreciated.

PM me your e-mail address and I'll send you a bunch of ads. Anything I can find referencing Camaro's from 67 ads, etc.

Joe thanks for that info. Can you say for sure that they were in the summer of 67?

I know they were in 70 because they sold a Yenko Nova.

Not sure when they became a network dealer, but it may not have been until 70.

I checked with the dealership. They don’t have any of the old records.
