I recently bought a 67 Camaro that is really a nice car in that it has no rust, a great engine, fantastic interior and is all around a great car. The car is dressed out as a SS with all the appropiate emblems in the right places but it has the hide-away headlights. When I ran the vin number on the CRG decoding software it shows that it is a V8 engine, had a viynl top on it and had a RS package. Question is what made a RS/SS ?? Someone told me that I could have a RS/SS car if it came this way. but I am sensible enough to know that I more than likely have a RS that has been cloned to a RS/SS  Huh

Help me out if you can

T.C. -

The VIN can tell you if your car had a V8 or not, but the VIN can't tell you if it came with a vinyl top or if it had the RS option.

The cowl tag on a '67 will tell you alot.  Posting a photo of your cowl tag will give you alot of answers.

   Simply-- an RS/SS was just an SS car with the RS option. The RS package was an appearance option only--it included hideaway headlights and different trim and taillights and backup lights etc... It also had RS emblems--EXCEPT on an SS car. The SS package always overrode the RS badging, so, no SS cars had RS emblems. The SS cars only came with two basic engine options--a 350 small-block or a 396. So if the car has a factory 327, it isn't an SS. All SS cars had 12-bolts as well. If the car has a 10-bolt and a 327 that's a sure indicator it wasn't a factory SS car.
   It easy enough to see if it came factory with a vinyl top--just look inside the trunk were the 1/4-panels meet the roof sail panels and under the tulip panel below the rear glass. Vinyl top cars had holes drilled for the trim clips. If the holes have been filled, the car had a factory vinyl top. If there are no signs of trim clip holes, it didn't unless the sheetmetal has been replaced.
   Hope this helps!

Where is that cowl tag picture? It will tell all on a '67.
