BEAUTIFULLY DONE SS396 W/ FANTASTIC PAINT & VERY CLEAN ALL AROUND. RUNS STRONG!
You know we love early Camaros, and this 1968 SS396 packages everything on your wish list in a slick bright red package. That's a powerful 396 under the hood and it's linked to a 4-speed manual gearbox, so it doesn't just talk big, it delivers.
A glance at the cowl tag will verify that this one wore code E Fathom Blue when it left the Norwood factory back in 1968, but nobody's going to complain about a bright red Camaro, right? The vinyl top was added, and it adds the right bit of contrast to keep it from being red overload. The cosmetic restoration was finished a few years ago and it looks fantastic, so someone has obviously kept after it and spent their Saturday afternoons keeping it at its best. The paint looks awesome and this is a color that everybody loves, and the details are what make this Camaro stand out in a crowded field. It carries a cowl-induction hood, ducktail spoiler, and proper SS badging, plus the nose and side stripes, so it has a purposeful look that's instantly recognizable. The vinyl top is in excellent condition and shows no signs of problems underneath, and the chrome bumpers and stainless trim has the right shine to look great against the bright red finish. If you like your Camaros to advertise their intentions, this is an awesome choice.
Black buckets replace the original code 717 blue setup but keep the upscale upholstery patterns that differentiate this car from those that carry standard seats. The result is an interior that looks the way the factory intended and doesn't show any trace of having once been blue. The original gauges are still in place behind that big tach on the steering column, along with console-mounted auxiliary gauges that look pretty cool. The original AM radio is gone, replaced by an AM/FM/cassette head unit in the dash, suggesting that this car has led an easy life where it wasn't hacked up and modified over the years. There's also a tilt wheel and a Hurst shifter links you to the 4-speed manual gearbox while the nicely finished trunk looks extremely clean and carries a correct bias-ply spare and jack assembly.
This 396 cubic inch V8 was rated at 325 horsepower and one glance at the highly detailed engine bay leaves no doubt as to where the money went. Beautifully finished with correct Chevy Orange paint, bright chrome tinwork, and a satin black background, it looks fantastic and runs even better. Aside from little stuff like hose clamps and some long-tube headers, it appears to be factory correct in almost every way. As with all big block Camaros, it has both power steering and power front disc brakes, as well as a heavy-duty radiator up front. The Muncie 4-speed is linked to a 10-bolt rear end and the exhaust system looks recent, featuring mandrel bends and a correct transverse muffler. Corvette Rally wheels are fitted, so it keeps a pretty stock look, and with 215/65/15 front and 245/60/15 rear BFG radials, there's just a bit of a rake to make it sit right.
Beautifully finished and extremely fast, this is the Camaro that does everything well. If you've been looking for a top-quality driver with a fantastic look, perhaps this is your car. Call today!
