The individual who did my grill had made a jig and sands the grill down to make it correct for 1967. It looks perfect. I also had the correct upper and lower grill sections riveted on. I recently sold my car and the new complete 67 grill assembly is hanging in my garage.

I've never understood the difference between the two versions..WHat is the difference and what is sanded off to make it "correct"?

..thanks Lane

...if you look at the " CROSS HAIRS " of the grill......The 67 grill " HORIZONTALS are FLUSH with the VERTICAL LINES........and on the 68 grill......The HORIZONTAL LINES stick out about a 1/6 or a lil more than the VERTICAL..Hope I explained it good  enough..??

Although this post http://www.camaros.org/forum/index.php?topic=1087.msg6272#msg6272 is part of a discussion regarding the 68 RS grille it does show a 67 with the vertical and horizontal ribs/bars level with each other.

okay...sorry for the dumb question, but I am a 69 Camaro guy, but I have owned a 68 RS.  What is the difference between a 67 and 68 RS grille?  They look identical to me.

Ah I see!

I did a search for '67 grille before I asked ..great post and the photos are helpful....sdkar may help you visualize as well.

My (2nd) NOS replacement is a '68 style- no surprise I guess...I had been told about the difference before but wasn't sure exactly what it was.
A woman backed into me in about '76 so my original is replenishing our oil supplies in a landfill somewhere in eastern Washington...looks like others had this same experience in the '68 thread.

I bought a replacement then as well...its in the attic- I'll have to look someday to see what version it is...thanks again..
