As the title states, I've been trying to figure out if the '67 396/375hp camaros had the m22 muncie trans as an option. My confusion comes from a discrepency on CRG. On http://www.camaros.org/trans.shtml#4speed it makes it sound like the m22 was available to the solid lifter engines (i.e. the L78 I have) and is listed in the chart for '67. However, on http://www.camaros.org/diffs67.shtml the only trans listed for that engine is the m21. Also, if you download the Options List PDF at http://www.camaros.org/options.shtml, it says the m22 RPO is n/a for '67.

I assume all of this means that it wasn't available, but its listed in the first link for as early as 66-67 with casting numbers etc. Why would they list it for those years with casting numbers on a camaro only information site if it wasn't even available?

I believe the first link info is general to all makes of cars that used the Muncie transmission and not Camaro specific. Later link show that it was not available in the 67 Camaro. Thats were you are confused.

Looks like Kurt clarified it for you.

The heavy-duty M22 was limited to just the solid-lifter engines, starting in Camaros in 1968.
The only car in 67 that had the M22 was the L88 Corvette, and then only 20 were sold. The chart lists ALL the casting numbers for Muncie transmissions from 63-74.
