Can You Identify These Chevy Engine Badges?

Think you know your cars? Prove it!


Think you know your cars? Then try the below automotive puzzle highlighting engine badges of Chevrolet vehicles that are currently listed on AutoHunter.

Chevrolet often used the same badge design with different cubic-inch numbers but, with the advent of the big-block in 1965, Chevrolet introduced a new design that was used through 1967. Seems that in 1968, Chevrolet began using plain numerals in most cases.

Below we have four engine badges — can you guess which Chevys they grace? Post your answers in the comments section below, then click on each image to learn whether you guessed correctly. Good luck!

Diego Rosenberg
Lead Writer Diego Rosenberg is a native of Wilmington, Delaware and Princeton, New Jersey, giving him plenty of exposure to the charms of Carlisle and Englishtown. Though his first love is Citroen, he fell for muscle cars after being seduced by 1950s finned flyers—in fact, he’s written two books on American muscle. But please don’t think there is a strong American bias because foreign weirdness is never far from his heart. With a penchant for underground music from the 1960-70s, Diego and his family reside in the Southwest.


  1. Diego, I love these lil contests, but the emblem for the ’67 Impala SS was not correct. The link went to a what I believe is a Marina blue car. The presented picture was from a car similar to my very first car- a ’67 Impala SS396 in Madeira/Honduras Maroon, black vinyl bucket seat interior, TH400, 10 bolt posi w/3.08 gears. Mine did have the front corner marker lights as the blue one does- many SS Impalas have a pressed metal, matte black accented corner piece, rather than those cool lamps. And I don’t understand the chrome trim in the pic. The fender emblems on my ’67 had no overhead chrome trim, they lived alone on the fender, only chrome near was the bumper and grille.
    Still, you brought back my HS days, and of all Impalas, I think that the ’67 is the best looking. I might be biased.

    • Thanks for your comment. Due to the blue car’s poor resolution when cropping around the engine badge, I went to our sister site, ClassicCars.com, to find a similar car with a 396. As it happened, the best pic was a 396 Bel Air, which is why you see that chrome trim.

  2. I’m guessing the 350 on the maroon car Is a 1965 Chevelle, the 8-350 on the orange car is a pickup, maybe 1972, the plain “350” is a 1967 Camaro, and the 396 is a 1967 Impala.

    How’d I do?

  3. Try using the actual cars the badge photo shows. As a lifelong Chevy fan, I can maybe buy the photo swap for the early 70s/late 60s C or K series truck, but the 67 Impala 396 badge? Not a chance. The fenderline suggests something more akin to maybe a 69-70 Nova. I can almost guarantee the chrome strip as shown never appeared on any Impala from 1967. Your out is called …

    • Here’s how it went down: I generally use cars on AutoHunter. But the image with the badge for the blue Impala was lackluster, so I had to dig deeper. The brochure is airbrushed, so no bueno as well. I then went to our sister site, ClassicCars.com, and found a 1967 Bel Air with a 396, and that’s the image I used. The side spear is what is throwing you off but both models use the same metal.
