So why does the RS need a different part number for the rear body harness? A keen-eyed observer can likely spot the difference between the two ‘67 Camaros below.

The answer is in the backup lights. In the RS, the backup lights are removed from the taillight assemblies and placed below the rear bumper. This means the wiring harness for the Rally Sport needs to have the additional length to allow the wires to reach the detached lights. Since GM originally made this a separate part number, we do too!

The Classic Update for the ‘67 – ‘68 and ‘69 cars will accommodate either a standard or RS light scheme.
