The 1967 Chevrolet Camaro is a two-door rear-wheel drive coupe powered by a standard inline-6 engine or a selection of three V-8 engines producing as much as 375 horsepower. Chevrolet first introduced the Camaro in 1967 as an entry in the pony car performance segment established by the introduction of the Ford Mustang in 1967. A diverse array of option packages was offered for the 1967 Camaro, including the Super Sport and Z-28 high-performance options.
The base L26 inline-6 engine offered in the 1967 Chevrolet Camaro displaces 3.8-liters and produces a relatively low 140 peak horsepower. All the V-8 engine options are considerably more powerful than the L26, such as the 5.7-liter small-block L48 V-8 producing a peak 300 horsepower. The big-block L35 and L78 V-8 engines both displace 6.5 liters and produce 325 and 375 horsepower, respectively. L48 engines were exclusive to the Super Sport version of the Camaro for 1967.
Major option packages for the 1967 Camaro were the Super Sport or SS, Rally Sport or RS, and Z28. The RS package was largely a cosmetic package that included hidden headlights and RS badging, while the SS included the L48 engine and chassis upgrades. Chevrolet conceived the Z28 as a race-ready version of the Camaro with a specialized 4.9-liter Z28 V-8 that produced 290 horsepower to conform to Trans Am racing regulations.
