MATCHING #'S 327 V8, AUTO, GREAT PAINT, ORIG DATA TAG, REDLINES, HEAD TURNER!
This is a once in a lifetime opportunity to own a highly documented, highly optioned, and highly original, numbers-matching V8 Camaro.
Take a good look at these pictures, a Camaro this straight and clean shows that it has been carefully maintained for nearly half a century. There is a nice feeling of honest originality in this one right down to the owner's manual and warranty cars. It's not trying to be cloned into something it isn't, and that means it gets to have added brightwork in the grille, and the optional style trim also gives some shine to the fenders and the rocker panels. Add this to the chrome bumpers, side mirrors, and the surrounds of nearly every inch of glass, and this has the perfect 1960s classy appearance. All this original shine did get some help from a few period-correct upgrades. The Matador Red paint has been swapped for a nice shade of Tuxedo Black. The careful respray included a classic Bumblebee Stripe in the front. The original optional Rally wheels were upgraded to a slightly larger 15-inch set from a Z28 to better fill out the wheel well. They still carry the same nostalgic redline bias-ply performance tires that that Chevy had as an upgrade in 1968.
Inside are the correct coded black vinyl bucket seats. They perfectly match the door panels, carpeting, headliner, and dash. It isn't all dark inside thanks to nice factory chrome accents on places such as the steering wheel, dual pod gauge surrounds, and the Camaro nameplates in the door and lockable glovebox. Those pieces are in excellent condition, but unfortunately don't get the attention they deserve because everyone always focuses on the center console. This additional factory option not only carries a distinctive wood grain, but it also has the iconic original horseshoe shifter - a cool piece to hold on even if you're not shifting the automatic transmission. A welcomed introduction for the 1968 model year was the Astro Ventilation system for vent/heat/defrost. This not only helped get more fresh air into the car, but it also eliminated the need for vent windows in the front like the '67 models. This gave the 1968 Camaro the cool pillarless look that will make you never want to roll up the windows. In fact, this coupe still has its original AM radio, but you'll be too occupied with the wind in your hair and listening to the soundtrack of the dual exhaust.
Take a closer look at the 327 cubic-inch small block motor. It's not only desirable to have a numbers-matching optional V8, but this one is exceptionally clean. The condition of the belts, hoses, and whole engine bay are evidence of serious investment in keeping this original Camaro a healthy pony car. For cruising convenience, this coupe has options like power steering and a Powerglide automatic transmission. Overall, it's the kind of classic that looks mean but drives very nicely.
This is one Camaro that will make you the envy of everyone at the car show or cruise in. We cant seem to keep black with white stripes in our showroom. And it's got the right power and the right options at the right price. Call now!!
