1967 RS Headlamp Switch
« on: July 14, 2012, 02:40:24 AM »
Hope you're all doing well.
Can you tell me if the dash headlamp switch for a 1967 Camaro RS differs from a non-RS? Also, where can I find one? Seems most of the Camaro retailers do not have these.

Thanks in advance.

The 67 Camaro used one of two different Headlight switches. If it DIDN'T come with RPO U17 (Gauge package), it used P/N 1995147, which was used on ALL cars from 1964-1967. If it DID come with RPO U17 (Gauge package), it used P/N 1995149, which was just used on the 67 Camaro with U17.

Actually, that's the generic replacement for both switches that most vendors carry. If you want an original, you have to go to ebay. But as seen in the links I originally posted, I hope you're sitting down when you look at the prices!!

Thx. Generic is fine. $90 for a switch is a bit much for this car. Thanks for your help.

In that case, go down to your local auto parts store. They're only a few bucks. Here's the one from AUTOZONE, but just about everyone has them.
