1967 CHEVY EL CAMINO STYLING CHANGES
The ’67 model year came at the end of the 2nd-generation of El Camino, and the 1st-generation of Chevelle. Stylistically and mechanically, it was mostly carried over from the ’66 model year, itself the recipient of a complete facelift. Of course there were the usual minor trim and detail changes. Included were a new front grille, bumper, trim, and a set of handsome wrap-around tail lights.
