1967 rear deck lid emblem
« on: March 14, 2021, 09:07:37 PM »
Hi all
Iím wondering if someone can point me in the right direction regarding the rear deck lid emblem on my 67 z28 ďcloneĒ (I hate calling it that because it sounds shady but thatís what it is)

I am doing a vintage road racer and it is currently in the shop for paint. Well in my mind if someone back then was going to compete they would have started with a z28 right? So I am trying to faithfully copy the original stripe details. The shop is taping the stripe around the emblems as original on 67 cars......Iím fine on the header emblem, but I have added a rear wing so Iím not quite sure about the rear deck lid.

I know wings were a dealer add on in 1967 and Iíve read that the emblem was moved or sometimes discarded entirely when this was done. Does anyone have an idea of where this was moved to if it was kept? Was that just the installers choice at the time? .....Iím not married to the idea of keeping the emblem but if itís going to be used I want it in the right location if possible

Any ideas?

I have never seen a 67 "Chevrolet" script above a spoiler. 

There is not really a way to add the emblem above a spoiler for 67- the 67 emblem is larger and the recesses and holes for the emblem are not present in the 67 style nor the 68-69 style inner frame structure.

I thought '67 never had a spoiler?

Not from the factory no....from what I understand it became available as an over the counter/ parts department item mid year....

-and that makes sense regarding the cut outs/recesses in the inner deck lid structure as well. Just thought I had read that they were relocated instead of removed but sounds like that may not be the case....

Thanks for the input

68 69 are moved up, however they were designed from the beginning to have a spoiler.
