With a few small-scale changes, the Impala was back with a new, flowing roofline for the Sports Coupes and SS models. Other than this roofline, Super Sport models were probably the most changed. They were distinguished by black grille, body-side, and rear fender accents. This year, the Caprice became a standalone model after being introduced as an option package in 1966. Finally, the L36 427ci big block was rated at 385 horsepower, and the L72 427 that was available in 1966 Impala was not offered in the 1967 Impala.
If you ordered your Camaro with the SS package, under the hood was either a 350ci V8, or later in the year, an available 396ci engine that produced 325 horsepower. Eventually, a 375 horsepower version would be available. Although not initially available, the late-year introduced Z28 included front disc brakes and a Muncie four-speed transmission. The all-new 302ci V8 was rated at 290 horsepower, but was rumored to actually have much more.
The Nova continued to provide dependable and economical transportation by offering consumers five engine and three transmission options.
Although it was 48 years ago, do you remember what you were driving–if you could drive?
