Overview


The 1967 Chevelle changed very little from the previous year, but had a new reworked bumper and a new blackout tail panel. Among other changes, it did come with better drivability because of more aggressive tires, front disc brakes, and 14” wheels.


The 1967 Chevelle changed very little from the previous year, but had a new reworked bumper and a new blackout tail panel. Among other changes, it did come with better drivability because of more aggressive tires, front disc brakes, and 14” wheels. A new three-speed automatic joined the ranks of available transmissions.

A new model was introduced, the Concours, which was merely a prestige wagon with wood grain sides.

The 300 and 300 Deluxe remained relatively unchanged in their bare-bone offerings. The Deluxe did offer different interior color and more expressive trim. Both offered a 2- and 4-door sedan, while the Deluxe had the added option of a 4-door wagon.

The Malibu continued its reign as the leading seller of the Chevelle, and would continue to do so throughout the Chevelle’s life, because it boasted the highest number of model options with the 4-door sport sedan, 2-door sport coupe, convertible, 4-door sedan, and 2-seat station wagon.

The Concours was just an upgraded form of the Malibu wagon that most visibly distinguished itself with wood grain sides. Inside, the Concours featured a high-end textured vinyl interior for both the seats and the side panels.

The SS 396 saw a performance damper. The L78 was not available, and the L34 dropped to 350hp from 360hp. This was a result of a new GM rule governing the horsepower allowances for all cars other than the Corvette.

Although GM did not offer the L78, some dealers installed the engine and 612 cars included this high performance engine.
