hmm, well with it being a '67, you only have two options. You either had the old 289 or the new 390 big block. Those were the only two options in 1967. Unless of course you have a GT500, then you have a 428. Here is a VIN decoder for 1967. This should help ya out.

Example VIN #7FO1C100001

7=Last digit of Model Year (1967)
F=Assembly Plant (F-Dearborn, R-San Jose, T-Metuchen)
01=Body Code For Coupe (02-fastback, 03-convertible)
C=Engine Code
100001=Consecutive unit number

Engine Code C: 289 cubic inch V-8 engine @ 200hp
Engine Code A: 289 cubic inch V-8 engine @ 225hp
Engine Code K: 289 cubic inch V-8 engine @ 271hp
Engine Code S: 390 cubic inch V-8 engine @ 320 hp

Thanks for the help guys but I forgot to mention that I bought it from a guy who had no idea what was under the hood. Is there anyway for me to look at the engine block itself and find something that would tell me the size of the engine?? Thanks in advance for the help!!

OH! and 1 more thing, the dipstick is located behind the alternator nice and hidden (so unless you know where to look you wont find it).

check the doorsill plate, should have the VIN on it... as far as underhood, the only thing that's you're really going to be able to tell is whether you have the 289 or the 390. The 390 is (obviously) much larger.

my friend from work has a 67 also and he has the 289 and he looked at my engine and said that mine is NOT a 289 cause its bigger. I wish I could tell from just looking at it. So for now I'll play the scarecrow and wish I had a brain....lol
