She's not an SS (most likely) ;)
No doubt, she's not. Also clearly stated here: http://www.camaros.org/numbers.shtml#67Codes

Thanks for the links.....I just wish could I could see a pic.  In no way am I doubting anyone's intelligence.  All I'm saying is that in my mind there will always be this little "I wonder" floating around until I see a TT prior to 10B with a 4P.  .....just sayin'.....I'm a seeing is believing kind of guy.  Admittedly, It's not an SS.......I've just never actually seeeeeen the proof that it isn't.  Also, like I previously posted, it really doesn't matter.  It's just a pleasure to be able to own this car regardless of what some trim tab says.

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas!

Do the car right, and it won't make any difference.
That brings up an interesting topic.....in your opinion, what does this mean.  Do I make an SS Clone?  Prostreet?  Put a 327 back in and go with stock?  Is one option better than another?  I would like to keep it a driver and I don't want to disrespect what a '67 camaro should represent.  Opinions?

I don't have a dog in this fight but "clones" are a dime a dozen and "Pro Street/ Pro Tour" just cuts up a good car. It's always been my opinion if it would have been better any other way GM would have made it differently since this car was started from scratch on a piece of paper or in someones mind.

I'm a day one kind of guy, so; I'd leave the car stock appearing, take off the SS stuff, put in whatever drive train you want and have fun with it.

Just my 2 cents, I like the day 2 look.  My 11A built car was a basic 327 - 2 bbl., Powerglide, with standard interior.  I now consider it a Tribute Z28 / day 2 car.  There's pics. on here if you check out my posts.  The Engine is the original 327 built with forged 'Vette Crank, 2.02 "Double Hump" heads, and an original 610 Intake.  It is dressed up to look exactly like a 302 (with Headers).  Powerglide Trans. has been swapped for a "built" TH 350 with a Hurst V-matic shifter(often mistaken for a 4 speed).  10 bolt open Rear-end has been swapped for a 12 bolt 4.11 Posi.  Interior has all been redone exactly like original standard, with 60's style custom Steering wheel, Column mounted Sun Tach, and Triple Guages mounted under center of dash (60's style)  Radio is a Classic Sound  AM/FM with 10 Disc CD Changer mounted up under the Package Tray (out of sight) Dash looks like original.  Car is still the original Bolero Red color (BC/CC), and changes that have been made, can fairly easily be changed back.  And I enjoy the Heck out of driving it the way it is.  Just my 2 cents.

lykaneagle,
Email me a pic of the cowl tag, and I'll post it for you.
What folks are trying to determine is how it came from the factory.
