67 SS 350 badging

Hey guys, my newly purchased 67 SS clone has "SS" (only, not SS 350) badges on the front grill, steering wheel horn cap insert, and gas cap. It also has "327" over the "V" flags on the fenders (car has a 350 in it). So to at least make it a good clone (LOL), is it correct to change the front grill, steering horn cap insert, and gas cap to "SS 350" and also change the "327" on the fenders above the "v" flag to "350"?

It has the "SS" on the very front of each fender also which I see on all 67 SS's. It also has the SS hood, but has the "stack" inserts instead of the grooved inserts, should this be changed over also to be correct? I have three grown sons and a birthday around the corner, ha ha this year I know what I want! Where would you buy them from for a nice driver?

Last question is is there a way to change the 327 to 350 (over the v flags) without removing the inner fenders etc?

Thanks in advance!

Re: 67 SS 350 badging

As I understand it, SS 350 emblems ended when the 396 was introduced in Jan 67. At that time all SS (350 or 396) cars got SS badges. So to be technically correct, it would depend on the build date.

All 67 SS hoods had "finned" hood ornaments.

If you're agile with a long skinny arm, loosening the lower rear fender bolts, pulling the fender out and blocking it with a 2x4, should work !

I have a late build (06B) and the only places it says 350 is the steering wheel and fender flags. Grill and gas cap are SS only.

Re: 67 SS 350 badging

My 67 10E came with SS on the Gas Cap and Grille. RS on the steering wheel. It did not have 350 on any of the emblems.

67RSSS......owned since 69. A basket case for most of it.

Re: 67 SS 350 badging

OK Gents, I looked at the car to remove the bottom fender bolts to replace the "327" with the "350" and ran into some trouble..namely, there is a strip of chrome trim that is raised ( a x sect would be a trianglular shape) and runs the length between the wheels, just below the bottom of the door seam, there are only 2 screws visible one at the front fender and one just before the rear wheel opening. It's one piece and if I remove the screws, the molding is still (very) firmly attached. This trim must be removed to pull the fender away to access the backing nuts, as the trim piece will otherwise bend when moving the fender. Anybody seen a trim piece like this to know how it is safely removed? Does it slide one way or another on clips? Just dont want something simple like this lead to body work!! I looked at my fisher body manual and it doesn't show this trim piece, it just shows the flat chrome trim (which I also have) that has seams at the door and fenders and they don't pose a problem. If pics are needed let me know and I'll figure that out how to post.

Yes, rocker "spear" molding. They all have that except 68 RS, which is what I have. Sorry I can't offer much advice on its removal. If you don't get a quick response here, start a new post...Rocker Molding Removal

...or try a search...67 rs camaro side molding how to remove?

Re: 67 SS 350 badging

This is a page from the assembly manual showing that spear and mounting hardware. It hangs on the top of the mounting stripe and pushed on the bottom. So remove the spear you need to try to pry the bottom out first.

Re: 67 SS 350 badging

May have adhesive back. Pull the fender before you damage something. Is it that important?

If you feel the pins, no nuts, there could be the barrel clips that hold the pin into the fender.
