67 vs 68 RS headlights and grill
« on: February 13, 2016, 05:47:00 PM »
Sometimes there are questions that if you try to Google you will never end up with a definitive answer, so I have come to the definitive source to get the answer.

I have always thought that all 1968 Camaro RS grilles and stripes looked like this (except for the SS badge):



And the 67 Camaro SS grilles and stripes looked like this (minus SS badge):



I believe that any deviation from this was just a mismatched and incorrect addition or restoration.  I believed that all 68s had horizontal chrome strips on the RS grille and a front stripe that stopped at the belt line and continued toward the rear of the car and all 67s had the solid black-mesh RS grill with a stripe that wrapped around the entire front end.  However, I have seen such an enormous amount of mismatched options I'm now beginning to wonder what was factory correct or if there were different options I was unavailable of.

Thank you for clearing this up.

Contact me if you have a 68 L78/L89 Camaro to add it to my database.

WOW, 15 pages!  Awesome, thanks.  It appears I haven't been the only one confused by this.
