Restoration World (www.chevroletrestorationwold.com) is litterly 2.5 miles from me. I have dealt with them a number of times, nice people.

Most of the aftermarket seals for a 1967 Chevrolet Bel-Air will be made by Metro Rubber or Soft Seal. The big question is, does the car in the UK have different then US market parts?

Ill disagree with you on that. Canadian models were Different enough back then. They published catalogs for Canadian market GM vehicles in English (not just French language versions) . I know Europe had some different lighting requirements in the 1960'* up.

If your over seas with a GM you need to know if it was a US market vehicle, Canadian market, or Export.

1967 also had basic emissions controls for California & Federal Emissions.
