CORVETTE BRONZE, SS TRIM, 327 V8, 4-SPEED W/HURST SHIFTER, 4 WHEEL DISC BRAKES!!
Camaros remain perennial favorites and this 1968 Camaro SS hardtop has a lot going for it that will make it a hit at the next cruise night. There's a sweet-running 327 up front with a 4-speed behind it, an awesome stance, and a fantastic color combination that you don't see every day.
The color's called Corvette Bronze and given how popular this hue is today, it's suddenly very much back in fashion. In a sea of Hugger Orange and black cars, this one will definitely stand out, particularly with the stinger-style SS stripe, which is my personal favorite of the three available choices in 1968. It's two-stage urethane, so there's a durable shine that'll look great for years to come simply by washing and waxing it on weekends. The stock hood with chrome inserts looks pretty cool and makes us wonder why everyone always changes it out for a cowl-induction unit, and we like the unadorned look of the rear spoiler without stripes which makes the car look a lot cleaner. New chrome bumpers glitter against the bronze paint and correct emblems have been installed as needed to give it an authentic SS look.
The black bucket seat interior was probably restored about the same time as the bodywork and uses reproduction seat covers, correct SS door panels, and black carpets with the proper weave to give it a very OEM look. The driver's seat shows some signs of use, but there's nothing here that will stop you from getting in and enjoying the car right away. The 4-speed is topped by a Hurst shifter with cue ball knob, the three-spoke wheel is super skinny but that's how they were in '68, and the gauges appear to be in very good original condition. There's also an original AM radio that looks right but could probably stand to be replaced with something more functional and modern for cruising, and a set of bright bowtie-logo floor mats keep the interior clean. The trunk is bare, but sometimes that's a good thing because there's nothing to hide here, just correct spatter-finish paint and signs of a gentle life in the warm South, which is always reassuring on an F-body.
The 327 cubic inch V8 under the hood isn't matching-numbers, but it's certainly the right engine for 1968. Nicely detailed in vivid Chevy Orange paint with chrome tinwork, it doesn't break any new ground but definitely looks like someone cared. It's labeled as a 350, and with an Edelbrock 4-barrel and a mild cam inside, it's a strong runner even without the extra cubes. A newer power brake booster goes with the 4-wheel disc brakes that give this Camaro the stopping power it has always deserved. Long-tube headers feed a mandrel-bent dual exhaust system that sounds fantastic at idle and like a battle cry at full throttle. The 4-speed manual gearbox feeds a 10-bolt rear end, making for a sturdy powertrain combination and monoleaf springs out back help with ride quality and handling at the same time. Cool REV Torque Thrust-style wheels look vintage but carry thoroughly modern 245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear performance radials.
