SINISTER '68, BUILT 350, AUTO, LONGTUBE DUALS, MODIFIED REAR, SLICKS ON WELDS!!
Go big or go home, that's the bottom line with this high-profile 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. With a pro-street vibe, it offers outrageous paint, a stout small block V8, and enough tire to make this street-legal hammer a legitimate threat on the street.
When you're building a Pro Street machine, subtlety is the last thing on your mind, and with that thought at the forefront of their minds, the guys who built this one gave it a gorgeous coat of Hugger Orange. Underneath that paint, however, there's ultra-straight sheetmetal that stretches taut over the Camaro's mechanicals, giving it a crouching look. There's also a 2-inch cowl induction hood and plenty of authentic Z/28 badges, too, so it has the right look, especially with those white stripes running down its back. Is it a real Z/28? Who cares! It looks right, sits right, and with a blacked-out grille and ducktail spoiler, it certainly looks the part. The work was done a few years ago, but it still looks fantastic, a testament to the guys who did the work. If it's attention you crave, your car has arrived.
You may have noticed the roll bar in back, but for the most part, the interior is a fairly user-friendly place that gets the "street" part of pro-street exactly right. You'll note factory bucket seats, stock door panels, a stock dash, and even a factory steering column. Gauges are a combination of original dials with a column-mounted tach, factory auxiliary dials in the console, and a trio of aftermarket dials over on the passenger's side. The horseshoe shifter is still surrounded by woodgraining and yes, there's even an AM/FM/CD stereo that sounds decent when you're not running hard. The trunk is full fuel cell, which replaces the original tank and makes for improved safety on the track. Yes, the rest is a little scruffy, but there's no major rot and a custom mat would pay big dividends in terms of eyeball appeal.
The biggest part of Pro Street is the hardware, and this car doesn't disappoint. The block is a 350 cubic inch Chevy V8 that's fully dressed for show as well as go. Starting with a bunch of chrome, including valve covers and air cleaner, it's joined by a polished stainless firewall that gives it the perfect backdrop, as well as chrome details and some red anodized fittings to match. There's a big Holley 4-barrel carburetor atop an Edelbrock Victor Jr intake manifold, so throttle response is snappy and an Accel coil lights it up. Long-tube headers and a custom dual exhaust with turn-downs ahead of the axle add to the pro-street vibe, as does the modified rear suspension with leaf springs, coil-overs, and trailing arms that work in conjunction with the original leaf springs. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission doesn't flinch at the combination of horsepower and traction and the suspension actually rides quite well on those big tires. Weld wheels are really the only choice for a machine like this, and they wear skinny 6.0-15s up front and N50-15 street slicks out back.
Fast, loud, and ready to rock, you show up with this car and you're definitely The Man. Call today for all the lurid details!
