Welcome to Down On The Street, where we admire old vehicles found parked on the streets of the Island That Rust Forgot: Alameda, California. Is it ever possible to have too many full-size Chevrolets?

We saw this '73 Caprice last week and this '70 not long before that, but that means that now is an even better time to check out this '67.

The two-door hardtop 1967 Caprice sold for $3,078 new, which was a little over 600 bucks more than a Bel Air two-door. Unlike the Bel Air, which came with a 250-cube six as standard equipment, the V8 was included in the base Caprice. Cheapskates got the 283, which got the job done just fine… but why would a cheapskate be buying a fine luxury machine such as the Caprice? Smart Chevy shoppers sprang for an extra $316 and got the SS 427 package, which upgraded the horsepower from 195 to 385. Of course, what's a 427 without a Rock Crusher 4-speed? A bargain at $181!
