Air conditioning was available on all SS396 engines except the solid lifter variety.

I'm by no means an expert on 67's but I would guess the 325 HP version came with an enclosed air cleaner assembly with air snout(s). The higher horsepower cars would have come with an open air element.

Except for the possibly rare 375hp L78 which doesn't show up in standard 67 Chevelle literature, both the base 325hp and L34 350hp 396 engines came with hydraulic lifter camshafts and both could be had w/air conditioning according to Chevrolet options.

The base 325hp offered the snorkle type air cleaner while the 350hp version got the open element type.

In the 66 396/325HP you could have Holley, Rochester or Carter built Rochester.

I think the 325HP was holley equipped if it had A.I.R., but I am uncertain if that was the reason both were available.

Only Holley on the higher HP motor.

Not the same as in 1967 as previously mentioned.
