Classic Car- 1967 Chevelle SS
Unlike today, the weather on Sunday was gorgeous. There was no rain in sight, and the heat honestly wasn’t too bad. It was the perfect weather for a cruise in, and a cruise in we did. We got to meet Tom Morosco and his 1967 Chevelle SS. Tom bought this classic car about 12 years ago and has enjoyed it ever since.
The 1967 models got some styling tweaks that resulted in a longer, more straightforward appearance. Large wraparound taillamps went into a new rear end with standard backup lights. Front disc brakes were available on all models, and a new dual master cylinder brake system incorporated a warning light. An entire host of new safety equipment became standard, including a collapsable steering column making the 1967 models safer cars. Buyers selected from no less than seven transmissions: two manual three-speeds, two manual four-speeds, an overdrive three-speed, and two automatics. The manual-shift feature of the Turbo Hydra-Matic transmission was touted in advertising. Options included Superlift air shock absorbers, Strato-ease headrests, and special instrumentation. Although Chevy’s big news for 1967 was the introduction of the Camaro, Chevelle offered a more traditional sort of sportiness.”
