We'll start out with horizontal shocks for the rear suspension. Not everybody used these shocks back then but some did so let's have a look.
First is an NOS set of Koni shocks, part # 76E-1256. These happen to be dated 9-67. Koni called these "axle dampers".
As you can see by the little yellow decal, the poofed-out part of the shock body would face up.
Koni also made these for Mustangs but as you can see, the part that goes forward has a longer extension, probably
to hook up with the factory bracket on a Shelby up inside the car's interior. Koni listed these as part # 76E-1225.
Here's a set of horizontal rear shocks as installed on the '67 Chaffey College Camaro.
Below is an advertisement from Competition Press/Autoweek from the 1969 era. It shows Hi-Tork as a brand of
horizontal racing shock. Note the fancy terminology "hydraulic traction bar". Well, that's pretty much what it is.

Below is a page from the late '67 Koni catalog showing part numbers for Camaro shocks including the horizontal version.
