1967

     The ’67 Vette is considerably the best looking of the Sting Rays. The Big Block engines came with a large air scoop instead of the previous power blister. There were now 5 side louvers slanted towards the front of the car. The parking break was now in the center console instead of under the dash, and very minor changes were also made to the interior. Other innovations include: four way flashers, directional signals with a lane changing function, larger interior vent ports, and folding seat back latches. On the rear were now twin rounded taillghts, and the back up lights were now relocated to above the license plates. Only this year were the wheels made with a knock off center. 88% of the ’67 vettes were sold with the four speed manual transmission, and a 10% amount had the Powerglide automatic transmission. Hardly any were sold with power brakes, power steering, or air conditioning. The new Vette could reach 60 in 7.8 seconds.
