by Rob Wagner

The 1967 to 1972 Chevrolet pickup trucks received the nickname "glamour trucks" for their understated timeless styling, exceptional engine power and car-like amenities in the cab. Many Chevy pickups from this era remain on the road today.

The 1967 Chevy pickup models featured four engine choices: the 155-hp, 250- and 175-hp 292-cubic-inch in-line six-cylinder and 235-hp 283 and 275-hp 327 V-8s. The 292 six and 327 V-8 were options.
