I have/had both. I still like the '66 better. The '66 SS trim is better looking too,IMO.

They both have their good points, The 66 offers a cleaner look and the 67 has a decorative look,(front grills) so for me it's 6 to 1 and half a dozen the other.

I like the clean polished look of the 66 headlight bezels, fender design doesn't bother me on the 67, and not sure what the grill looks like on the 67.

I have my '66
and I had a '67.
but I love the '66

at least you can take the headlight bezels and switch them side to side.
same as the rear tail lights.
how many other cars do you know of that you can do that with?

I have one 66 and 2 67s, and which one I prefer is completely dependent upon the day. They both are badass.
