This panel came off a 67 Camaro but sure doesn't look like what I'm used to seeing..

Looks like it could be 64 - 67 Chevelle.

That Chevelle panel is nothing like the one pictured at the beginning of this thread (see comparison below). To me, it genuinely looks like a 67-69 Camaro panel that has been modified - but who'd go to all that trouble, unless it was some car show special, or a GM prototype......

I dont think it been modified.  The Camaro panel is recessed where the louvers are and the panel I have is flat.  If you look on either side of the louver ends it has a step in the panel (hard to see in the pic).  Ive tried to find pics of Omega & Ventura panels but they all seem to be the same as a Nova.   Huh

Certainly is a head scratcher. When it was installed on the '67, assume there was a step between the cowl vent panel and the recessed sections of the hood?

No clue. Cowl & vin tags were already gone and no title so the car was destined to scrap unfortunately before we were given the chance to take whatever was left before it was crushed. From the C pillar back there was nothing salvageable. What was left were the fenders, cowl panel & the roof was cut off. Floors were completely rotted, doors were already missing, subframe gone along with the firewall. There wasnt much left that could be called a shell. This all happened 10-15yrs ago. I have looked for any stampings with no luck.
