1967 Camaro Parts and Restoration Specifications
With the Ford Mustang already eating up the new pony car market, Chevrolet announced its rebuttal on September 26th, 1966. Originally named Panther, the Camaro moniker was chosen instead. Some experts believe the word means â€ścompanionâ€ť or â€śfriendâ€ť but others argue that it simply has no meaning at all. Either way, this new pony car would mark the beginning of a whole new era of American muscle car icons.
The 1967 Camaro was available in many different configurations. From a plain Jane sport coupe to asphalt eating Super Sport, there was something for everyone! All 1967 Camaros shared the same body unlike the Chevelle and were available in either coupe or convertible. Buyers could choose from the base model Sport Coupe, drag strip ready Super Sport, or road racing Z-28. The Rally Sport option with hidden headlights could be added as a separate packing to any of those models.
Interiors could be optioned with either bucket seats or bench seats and were available in a variety of colors and styles. Standard interiors were available in Black, Light Blue, Red, White, or Gold.

A fold down rear seat was available but very rare. An optional console was available with our without gauges on bucket seat cars.
