350CI MOTOR W/ EDELBROCK UPGRADES, FACTORY A/C CAR W/ VINTAGE AIR UNIT, NICE!
Is the first-generation Camaro the most perfect muscle car? Well, when you see cars like this 1968 coupe, it's hard to argue against it. Stunning good looks, tons of options, perfect proportions, and a stout V8 under the hood, what's not to love?
I don't care who you are, these Camaros are cool. This one is the perfect machine for cruising, hitting up the local car shows, and perhaps for driving to work on those special Fridays when you'll take the long way home. The handsome Lemans Blue paint job screams high performance, and thanks to a pair of white SS stripes, it has a very clean look overall. A cowl induction hood is always the right look on an early F-body, as is the original-style ducktail spoiler. Workmanship is quite good overall, with flat panels, good gaps, and a paint job that makes people do double-takes as you pass, giving you the "thumbs up" along the way. In fact, the sheetmetal looks original suggesting this has always been a clean car. Chrome bumpers look freshly re-plated, and all the badges and insignias have been faithfully reinstalled, and I salute their sense of restraint for avoiding the ubiquitous SS emblems.
Standard fare for the '68 Camaro was a black interior that was so long on style and comfort that upgrades were rarely needed. This one was restored not too long ago, and shows very little wear on any of the new parts such as the seat covers, carpets, or door panels. The 3-spoke steering wheel is a nice touch, as is the horseshoe shifter for the automatic transmission, and the woodgrain accents on the console actually match the dash pretty well. Cool factory auxiliary gauges on the leading edge of the console work with an in-dash tach to keep the driver abreast of goings-on in the engine room, and you'll note that the instrument panel has been painted to match the bodywork. A newer AM/FM/iPod stereo head unit has been installed in the original radio's location, and there's factory A/C that blows nice and cold thanks to modern hardware under the hood. The trunk is outfitted with a form-fitting mat, so it looks right and doesn't hold any nasty surprises.
A stout 350 cubic inch V8 was built just for this car and dressed up with so much chrome that you'll just have to pop the hood every chance you get. Those shiny valve covers and a matching air cleaner are nice touches, but you'll also find an aluminum Edelbrock intake, and 4-barrel carburetor, a chrome alternator and master cylinder, and bright red MSD ignition components to tie it all together. It runs smoothly, as you'd expect from a small block Chevy, and has that characteristic rumble compliments of long-tube headers and a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission spins a rugged 10-bolt out back, so feel free to dip into the throttle and enjoy the horsepower as intended. Proper Rally wheels are always right on a Camaro and carry 225/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials.
If you're looking for a great F-body to enjoy this summer, this one is both reasonably priced and nicely finished. Call today!
