VERY SHARP CAMARO & CLEAN! STRONG 327 V8, AUTO, PWR STEERING/BRAKES, GR8 CRUISER
Camaros remain perennial favorites and this 1968 Chevrolet 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 an easy-to-drive automatic behind it, an awesome stance, and a fantastic color combination that is sure to attract a ton of attention.
There's just no way to make a 1968 Camaro look bad, but dressed in a very shiny coat of black with red Z/28-style stripes, this one takes on an entirely different attitude. In a sea of Hugger Orange and red cars, this one will definitely stand out, and the workmanship is good enough to stand up to fairly intense scrutiny. 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 and they obviously invested the time needed to make a black car look its best. A cowl induction hood always looks cool without disrupting the smooth, low-key look, and there's a ducktail spoiler out back along with a deck lid-mounted antenna, so the rear is as interesting as the front. Bright chrome bumpers glitter against the black paint and correct emblems have been installed as needed to give it an authentic SS look.
The black and white houndstooth bucket seat interior was probably restored about the same time as the bodywork and uses reproduction seat covers, correct door panels, and black carpets with the proper weave to give it a very OEM look. The driver's seat shows some very minor signs of use, but there's nothing here that will stop you from getting in and enjoying the car right away. The 2-speed PowerGlide automatic transmission is managed by the ultra-cool horseshoe shifter, the wood-rimmed 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. An aftermarket tach and auxiliary gauges have been added to supplement the original dials, which is probably not a bad idea. There's also an updated Sony AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the center of the dash. The trunk is bare, but sometimes that's a good thing because there's nothing to hide here, just correct spatter-finish paint and no signs of a former life in the rust belt, which is always reassuring on an F-body.
The 327 cubic inch V8 under the hood is believed to be the original with a correct date code and the suffix code "ME" which designates it as a 1968 327 V8 for use in a Camaro with a powerglide transmission. 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 plenty potent, and with an upgraded 4-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake manifold, and a mild cam inside, it's a strong runner even without the extra cubes. A newer power brake booster goes with the front disc brakes that give this Camaro the stopping power to match its go power. Long-tube headers feed a Flowmaster dual exhaust system that sounds fantastic at idle and like a battle cry at full throttle. The PowerGlide 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. Stock-looking Rally wheels look right on any early Camaro and carry fat BFGoodrich rubber that tucks under the fenders just right.
