GREAT RUNNING & DRIVING CAMARO, 350 V8, AUTO, SERPENTINE, POWER FRONT DISCS, PS!
You can make the argument that Ford invented the pony car, but the Camaro perfected it. This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro has the look, the sound, and the performance that you've always hoped your next collector car would offer, all at a very attractive price.
The color looks like Cordovan Maroon with black SS stripes, and it's both sporting and sophisticated. Finish quality is quite good and the stripes were buried under the clear, so it has a seamless look that suggests a lot of money went into the cosmetics. Camaros don't hide bad body work very well, so the straight quarter panels and good gaps are a testament to both quality base stock and impressive effort by the guys tasked with putting it all together. A professional color sand and buff would really make this F-body pop, but even as it sits, it fulfills all those study hall daydreams you had back in the day. The chrome and bright trim is mostly refinished, although the bumpers may be original, a testament to the care this car has enjoyed over the years. Outfitted with correct SS badges, cool clear headlights, and a cowl induction hood, it has a performance look that stands out with the details.
The black bucket seat interior was restored with the bodywork, and the quality seat covers show a bit of age but remain inviting and free of rips or tears. Newer carpets and door panels look good while the dash is probably original. The factory gauges covered only the basics of speed and fuel level, so a set of auxiliary instruments were fitted below the dash in the usual location just ahead of the horseshoe shifter for the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission underneath. New weather seals and window felt seal it up well and help control squeaks and rattles in the 50-year-old F-body, and compared with a similar Mustang of this vintage, the Camaro feels decidedly more modern from behind the wheel. The back seat looks almost new and the trunk is bare spatter-finish paint that could use a fresh mat but also doesn't have much to hide.
The 350 cubic inch V8 is an interesting find. Taking from a 1984 Corvette with Cross-Fire fuel injection, it has a few noteworthy upgrades for duty in the Camaro. First and foremost, the finicky injection system is gone, replaced by an Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor, along with a set of chrome valve covers and matching air cleaner. On the other hand, the serpentine belt accessory drive is a good upgrade for reliability and fits neatly in the Camaro's engine bay. Power steering and power front disc brakes make this Camaro very user-friendly around town, and the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission never seems to be in the wrong gear. Long-tube headers feed a new Flowmaster dual exhaust system that sounds awesome, and there are recent shocks all around plus composite springs in back to help with the ride. Big Cragar mag wheels make the car sparkle and carry 235/60/15 front and 245/60/15 rear white-letter radials that still have a lot of life left in them.
Not perfect but not expensive, either, this Camaro offers a fantastic look, plenty of power, and excellent fundamentals for the guy looking to live the dream. Call today!
