  1. Had a brand new 67. bought in Oct. 66.
    It was white, 3 speed stick , 2 barrel , 289, with single exhaust.. ( standard base model, with an AM radio. ) at least for the first 2 years..
    Then came the mods ….
    Traction bars, dual exhausts, 4:11 posi. diff.
    Aluminum intake manifold. 600 cfm 4 barrel, top loader 4 speed tranny, Isky cam, huge accel coil, dual point distributor.
