No, not rare, but still desirable if original GM. Over 35,000 cars sold in 67 with V32 rear guards. Chrome wasn't great even when new and most any used set will be in need of re-chroming by todays standards.
I was shopping ebay a few years ago and seems selling prices ranged from $75-100 or so...
Yes, those are what I was describing in my first reply. They were optional (RPO V32). 67 and 68 are the same. They look pretty good and if original GM, I'd say my estimate is in the ballpark. Pretty hard to distinguish original vs repop without actually mounting them on the car as the repops are very close but not a perfect fit.
X2 Garth, never seen them with solid fronts. Like they missed the piercing operation and were chromed anyway and sent out......

You have peaked my curiosity. I stopped the eBay auction.
I got these when I bought the car about 8 or so years ago. Never tried to install them. Could maybe they not be from a Camaro? Never even considered that since they came with the car. Didn't want to sell them as a Camaro part if they were not.
The shape where the bumper goes looks to be about right. The surface on the inside, where the rubber would go, looks like its never been touched. (as if someone welded up a hole and re-chromed)
On one of the guards there appears to be an area that looks like a grinder mark that was pre-chroming. I tried to take a picture of it. I just figured it as a defect. But again, nothing on the inside to indicate any alteration was made.
Sorry for the "Made in China" box in the background
The profile looks correct for 67/8 Camaro. Do you have a 67 AIM (assembly instruction manual) ? If so, look up V32 and see how the rubber inserts were installed. If it mentions adhesive, I'd be pretty confident those are originals....
The chrome piece should have a long slot cut in it where the 3 studs in the rubber go as opposed to 3 individual holes.
Your correct, however there's nothing on the face that the rubber would mount to. No holes, no slot, nothing. Just a smooth chromed surface. Smooth and flat on the inside surface as well. To me they don't look like they have been modified in any way.
Any more guesses as to what they are? A defect that was installed at the factory? Different car maybe?
I cant seem to find anything else that even looks close from another car.
