My 67 Camaro had the metal backs. It was a early January, 67 build.


1967 Camaro SS/RS 350/295HP Coupe. First and only owner.

I have to ask the reverse. How rare are plastic? Before reading about them on this site i never heard of them. I still have a couple interiors here with metal backs.

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

They are rare due to only being used part year for 67 only. Not necessarily valuable but rare.

Re: Metal seat backs ??

It would appear, according to the CRG link posted above, the metal to plastic started about mid April my car was among the last group that still got metal being a 2nd week of April build car.

A new tid bit about the sub-frame change about the same time also noted in the link. I have the "new" version with the large hole to access bumper bracket bolt.

Cool to learn something else I didn't know about my car
