1967 68 69 Camaro RS Hideaway Headlights


As a restoration parts business, we get flooded with technical questions. Most employees begin to see a pattern in customer inquires after only a few months of working here. There are a few questions that come up time and time again. One of the most common questions starts, “how do I install,” “do you have diagrams of,” “what parts are in,” or “how do I put together” and ends with “67, 68, and 69 Camaro Rally Sport hideaway headlights.”

Hopefully the information we have posted below will help you get your 67, 68, or 69 Camaro RS hideaway lights functioning just like new.

  1. Is there anyway to get a wiring diagram for installing these hide away lights for a 67 RS. I have the 3 relays and no idea how to wire them up for operation.

  2. Order the assembly manual for a 69 impala its 20 bucks and shows how to install the retractable headlights. With that book i was able to take them off and put them back with no problem because you can see where everything goes.
