    Nothing wrong with the '67 model year. If it has disc brakes, then go for it /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif. It looks clean, has a good stance, and by the looks of the motor, looks ike it should have no issues in the acceleration department. If it fits your needs and is built as well as it looks, appropriate it already!!

    [Homer voice] Mmmmmmm, blower [/Homer voice off]

    I second that. Fords suck! They have non-adjustable rocker arms, the water pumps leak (even with 7 bolts holing them on), and the hex shaft between the oil pump and distributor is a weak design. Chevrolets and Chrysler big blocks are the best designed American V8's.

    67's are my favorite year. It's the last year of the bigger body style. I like the sharper points on the front and rear fenders. Mine was tricked out a bit with a 9" ford rear, Hotchkis suspension, 4 wheels disc brakes and a T56 speed trans /forums/images/graemlins/peace.gif
    It's got a bigger backseat too /forums/images/graemlins/deal.gif

    Who cares what everyone else's favorite is. If YOU like it, that's all that matters. I think '67 has some sexy lines to it, both front and rear. My personal favorite is '70, but the reasons are my own and therefore irrelevant to this. It's a GM A body, it's all good!! The '66-'72 A body cars all share the same good components (for the most part--or the parts are at least interchangeable). If you like it, screw what the other people like, just get it. Like I said, my favorite year is '70, but if I was in the market for an old A body, I would definitely score that one if it is as nice as it looks and is in the right price range. The car looks real clean, and to liken it to a term better understood--If it was a chick, I wouldn't kick her out of bed for farting /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.

    Buy it Pinion,
    Buy it Pinion,
    Do it, it's calling you, "Buy me Pinion". Don't disappoint it. Don't let it go to a bad home. Go get it and let it share some quality time with the K5 /forums/images/graemlins/whistling.gif.
    Never know what might come of it........ /forums/images/graemlins/cool.gif

    I couldn't agree more. Mopar built one helluva motor back in the day (still ok, but the new Magnums don't compare to the good stuff of the old days). If I wasn't raised in a GM household, I would definitely be driving an old Dodge of some sort /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif.

    What are you talking about...My stang with the 347 had none of these issues and it was pushing 520HP at the rear wheels (on the juice). i've been racing mustangs since '94 and found them to be quite strong. Now the suspensions could use a little help .

    As far as the '67 chevelle, that IS a sweet car. Don't buy it cause you think its THE year to get, buy it cause YOU like it.

    Good luck

    [/ QUOTE ] Sence it's modified, the year doesn't matter. If you were looking for a 100% factory stock Chevelle, then I'd say a 1970 LS6. But sence were talking HOT ROD, my personal favs are the 66 and 67, love that body style.

    Just like 4x4s, it cost $30-40k to build one of those up, too.

    $15k is a steal.
