  • Generally, in 1967 the series/model designation on the trim tag is a trim level and not an indication of the engine type installed in the vehicle as Fisher Body didn't care what engine type was to be installed. Fremont and Oshawa are the only two known plants to match the Fisher Body style number with the series/model of the VIN. Atlanta, Baltimore, and Kansas City are known to use a style number with an even 3rd digit regardless; Framingham is not certain and only the Vehicle Identification Number plate can determine whether the model was delivered with a V8 or L6 engine.

  • 1967 was the second of three years the Chevelle SS396 was a separate series (13817/13867) and not an option on the Malibu.

  • The Sport Coupe model designation was changed from "37" to "17" for 1966 and 1967 only to denote the new 'Strut Back' or 'Flying Buttress' hardtop styling.

  • Indications are the body numbers are sequential for the particular series/model per plant.

  • A popular publication states, "On all 1965 through 1971 trim tags, the engine identification portion of the model identification number always indicates a V-8 engine. No 6-cylinder engine identification numbers are stamped on any trim tag." This is an incorrect statement for not only 1965 through 1971 but includes 1972 as well. There are numerous examples of trim tags with an odd 3rd-digit style on this website.
