Sorry around that. In the first pic it kinda looked to me choose there was a divider in every tail irradiate bezel. The second photo plainly showed over there was not one. I have seen world switch the bezels in between years with out understanding there was any difference. I does look choose a quite cool car. Mark
The taillights space different. 67 has actually a solid housing assembly where the 68 has the divider under the center of the lens. The images shows a 67 taillight assembly. If it were a 68, the taillight would have actually the divider down the facility of every taillight.
