Correct year? Is there a secret feud about which first gen is the best?
No feud, personal preference, some like blondes, some like redheads, some like brunettes.
The '67's were built and people liked them.
The '68's came along and GM corrected their mistakes - added RPO WWD (Wing Window Delete), Astro Ventilation,
script emblems, wider outside mirrors, but still maintained the body sculpture and as viewed from the rear -
low flat hood with nice broad shoulders across the front axle, small waistband about the rear quarter windows, and nice flowing lines across the hips housing the rear wheels.
the '69's have different body lines, more subdued, and look at the rear quarters ...
They have those dimples - cellulite dimples on the hips...and gravity took over and covered the rear wheels.
Just personal preference...
