1967 RS/SS
« on: March 06, 2006, 11:38:29 PM »
Does the RPO L35 and RPO Z22 mean that a 1967 Camaro is an RS/SS?  These are included on its cowl tag.  I know the L35 is the 396/325hp engine, but was that engine only supplied with the SS package?
Thanks, Bob

I think I just found the answer to my own question.  According to CRG page www.camaros.org/engine.shtml the 396/325hp was only offered with the SS package.  That would make my '67 an RS/SS.  If this is incorrect let me know.

Thanks to CRG for the comprehensive info!!

Can you post a photo of the cowl tag? RPO numbers (L35, Z22, etc.) were never stamped on the cowl tag.

You are right.  I had already decoded the cowl tag : 3L from the cowl tag is RPO Z22 and 4N is RPO L35.
Complete Cowl Tag:
04A                 A549
67-12437    LOS-29496 BODY
717-Z         C-C      Paint
 W2MG3L
4N

I decode a 67 Camaro Coupe, std interior, made in Van Nuys, Blue interior with bucket seats no headrests, Color Ermine White, No Vinyl Top,Windshield only tinted, TH 400 since made in Van Nuys, center console, RS package, SS package w/ 396/325hp.  My other question is how many like this were made?  My guess is about 300.

The production date and color/options tie in 100% with the Indianapolis 500 and the Indy 67 Camaro pace car production and related promotional campaigns.

I wish.  Date code is right on but the blue code from what I've read needs to be 732 Z: Bright Blue buckets.  Also, style code needs to be 12637.
