I have a 1967 Chevelle SS, I am in a debate over the stock lighter element. Is the original made of Metal or Plastic (Talking about the actual knob)? I have an aftermarket one, By the way if anyone has an original they are looking to sell drop me an e-mail.

Mine is plastic. However I can't say with 100% certainty if it is original or repro. I've assumed its original since it is a perfect match with the rest of the dash. As a not-so recent graduate of St. Lawrence Elementry School, Redondo Beach was my old stomping grounds. Good to know Chevelles still cruise PCH and Prospect Ave.

Yes, We do still have plenty of cruz nights here. I got rid of my 1967 Malibu and Upgraded to a 1967 SS Chevelle. Niether one of them had a lighter element in it. I have replaced both of them with an aftermarket one. I always thought the original was made of Pop Metal (The Knob part).

Ok Pete, I wish I would have seen your post earlier but I don't go to "interiors" much. I have a lighter for you.It is original to a 67. Check your mail.
P.s They're plastic originally.

was just glancing through the post and saw your last comment, and thought i'd let you know... The SS package was not an available option on Elcaminos until 1968- but you could get the big blocks & other SS goodies on the 66 & 67s... So there aren't any (real) 67 SS caminos...

Well. color me two shades of stupid! I guess what I meant was a BB 67 el camino.I'm looking for a gutted shell I can pick up cheap and slap a 396 or 427 in it.
