Help identifying a 1967 Camaro
« on: July 17, 2009, 11:39:53 PM »
I have a 1967 Camaro and according to the cowl tag it was a v8 model  built in Dec 66 with A-A as the paint code.  It also states 760-Z and the next line has to do something with the interior and exterior trim codes which I can only make out 3SK.  The part that is confusing me is that is has a factory rectangle traction bar and a 10bolt rear end with what looks like to be 2.73:1 gears.  It is a 2 speed column shift car but has a bracket for a console mount.  The rear seat is a fold down seat with side arm rests but looks like stand door panels.  There is to much going on here for me to be sure what I got.  It was bought as part of an estate sale and had been sitting for a very long time. Any help to identifying this car would be great.  I am assuming it is a standard coupe, but there are confusing aspects to the car.  Thanks for everyone's help.

Could you order the fold down rear seat as an option with the standard interior? It is black with a white line around the seat about three inches from the edge. Would the front seats of match? Currently there is no front seats.  Why the factory traction bar? I thought that was only available on the high performance models. Is it possible that it was a ss? Knowing it had a 10bolt rear end and a power glide transmission and only 2.73 gears.  I wouldn't think so, but who knows what was going on with the car back then.  From what I understand they didnt start putting on the ss group code until last week of December 66 or January 67. Thanks for your feedback.

Get the date off your rear axle.  The rectangular radius arm did not come into being until Late march or early April of 67, and was used on the higher HP cars.  Doubt that that is the original axle for the car.  There was a retro fit kit available to address wheep hop problems but it is different than a factory installed unit.  If the front support plate is bolted into the car, instead of welded you may have one of those units.

MY CAR IS A 12D BUILT 67 RS/SS. it lists 4P on the trim tag, denoting  ss 350. the fold down was added, as i also have 760Z as a trim code, and have all black buckets. when talking to the original owner of my car last year, he informed me that the traction bar was a recall item, added after he took delivery. it is square as opposed to the factory small block traction bar which was round. is yours square or round?

the person that bought the car new,also could also have taken it back to the dealership and they could have put in the arm on,  there is a service bulliten on wheel hop. I don't think  all had to be 12 bolts

Thanks everyone for your input.  Since my car isn't a numbers matching car and not one of the rare collectors, I assume it really doesn't matter how I build it. Meaning a standard coupe or a ss350 car. As long as I identify that fact. I just want to get it on the road and have fun.  Not looking to build and sale to make a profit.  Strictly a project for me and to pass down to my kids.
