1967 Chevrolet Biscayne

The Bel Air was Chevrolet's mid-priced option for 1967. Not much had changed from the previous year and the full size automobiles were still a success for Chevrolet. You could pay a little extra to get some of the many features that came with the Bel Air including: glove compartment light, illuminated ignition switch and stylish interiors.

All passenger models will have RPO letter designation stamped in this location. On two tone combinations, the first letter indicates the lower color, second letter the upper color. See Exterior Paint Codes in the VIN & Decoding section.

A five digit numbering system will be used on all 1967-1969 passenger cars.

The first two digits denote the vehicle series. The third indicates base engine equipment, and the two remaining numbers identify the body style. When the third digit is odd (1, 3, 5, 7), the base engine is an inline four or six cylinder. When the third number is even (2, 4, 6, 8), the base engine is a V-8.
The complete serial number consists of the above model identification, year of manufacture, plant designation, and sequence number.
Example: 164397F100500
16439 = Impala V-8 4-Dr. Sport Sedan, 7 = 1967 Model, F = Flint Built. 100500 = 500th 1967 Chevrolet built at Flint
