The guys are all right, but the quickest, most at-a-glance difference between 67's and -8's is the vent window - you can see it from a mile away (almost, anyway). I think most of them mentioned it above - but it's the one clear, quick, obvious-to-a-neophyte difference. And the lines of the '69 are similar, yet completely different. The '69's look fatter, or more muscular, than the leaner 67's and -8's. The fenders bulge more, their generally a little bigger looking, and the grilles are set deeper - also obvious at a glance, without knowing the minutia of year by year differences.
If you've got a '69, as your moniker suggests, your kid ought to be familiar enough with them to see the differences from a mile away - at least '69 vs. pre-69.
Sounds like a 16 year old to me.
