NUT-AND-BOLT, NOTHING SPARED RESTO, CRATE 502 V8, 4-SPEED, PS, PDB, A/C, A++!!
The Chevy Camaro has always delivered big performance in a slick package, and this 1968 RS/SS continues the tradition. Painstakingly restored by the pro's pros, this beauty is now packing a rompin' stompin' 502 crate motor and a fantastic look. If showing up in an awesome piece of Chevy muscle is your idea of fun, this is your next car.
This sucker could probably compete for trophies at top levels, but to be honest, it's probably too good for that. The sinister black paint is surely worlds better than anything the factory could have managed, and as always, it looks fantastic on the F-body shape. They worked hard to get it into shape, nailing the gaps and prepping the steel (no Bondo!) to make it look right once everything was said and done, and the depth of the reflections in the body's surface is proof enough. Correct white SS stripes were painted on with precision, and they're the more dramatic late-68 D90 style that cuts back to the door, so this car is sure to stand out in a crowd. It also has correct RS equipment like the popular hidden headlights up front and separate back-up lights out back, plus the usual ducktail spoiler on the trunk. True to form for a big block car, the tail panel is properly blacked-out, which works with the overall color combination and it's nice that they decided to keep the original hood with its chrome velocity stacks built right in. Chrome bumpers look great against the black paint and they're like the rest of the car: better than new.
Black really is the only color that you'd choose on a Camaro like this, and the buckets wear reproduction seat covers that fit well and remain quite comfortable. The interior, like the bodywork, is pretty stock with a few thoughtful changes that enhance the driving experience. The black carpets are correct, the door panels are in excellent shape, and there's a center console with a big Hurst shifter in the middle. The gauges are standard issue, although a white-faced temperature gauge has been neatly integrated into the dash for a custom look. A new AM/FM/iPod radio slots neatly into the original spot and yes, this sucker is air conditioned (what, you thought all that big block power was going to go to waste?. The trunk is finished with a full-sized spare and a proper jack assembly.
The burly GM crate 502 cubic inch V8 under the hood brings big firepower and with mountainous torque production, it'll pretty much shred the tires at will. The decal up top suggests that it is an L78 396/375, and the look is consistent, so if a BBC Camaro can be a sleeper, this might be it. Proper chrome valve covers, a Bowtie intake, and a 4-barrel carburetor help with the vintage performance look. There's a serpentine belt drive system for the accessories and a giant aluminum radiator up front, the two most obvious signs that this Camaro isn't like the others. The engine starts with a wonderful big block bark from the Magnaflow exhaust system and pulls like a freight train, as you'd expect. The chassis is super clean and includes traction bars out back because, obviously, you're going to need them. The ride height is stock, so it looks right sitting on Rally wheels with staggered 215/65/15 front and 225/70/15 rear BFG tires.
There are inferior Camaros out there for more money, but this one skillfully blends big performance, correct details, and an outstanding look to make one heck of an early F-body. They really don't get much better than this. Call today!
