SLICK CHEVY DROP TOP! BUILT UP 327 V8, MUNCIE M-22 4-SPEED MANUAL, NEW TOP, WOW!
This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro convertible is muscle-car fun done the right way, with a top that goes down. A very impressive build in almost every possible way, it's beautiful to look at and with the right modifications, it's downright amazing to drive. It may look like one of those classic cars that should only be gazed upon, but with all that serious hardware under its skin, you're going to have a hard time staying out of the driver's seat.
Upgraded to a highly-desirable black-on-black color combination and finished to a high driver-quality grade, this dialed-in Camaro arguably looks better in person than it does in its photos (especially when it's out in the sun), and that's no small achievement. Black paint this glossy doesn't happen by accident, so lots of man of hours were spent sanding, smoothing, and aligning the panels before even a drop went on. Sure, it's no show car, but the finish is very impressive and because you can't really get away with any shoddy work when you paint a car black, you know there are no surprises underneath. Instead of over-dressing the car, it instead keeps a factory hood and smooth decklid and lets the clean workmanship speak for itself. They didn't bother dressing it with a bunch of stripes and fake SS badges either, but instead relied on the slick Camaro bodywork to speak for itself. The front grille perfectly complements the image of this droptop, and thin profile trim does a great job to break up the monochrome look just enough. Beautiful chrome bumpers contrast the black paint and all the stainless was either polished or replaced when the car went back together, because it shines super bright as well.
If you're building a Camaro, you really can't go wrong with black vinyl upholstery, and in this convertible, the black seat covers are a welcome match to the exterior paint and black convertible top. Virtually everything inside this car is restored or replaced, including the seat covers, carpets and door panels. The 3-spoke steering wheel highlights the interior and the dash was finished to match the condition of the rest of the interior, and it's further accented with chrome trim to match the door panels. The original gauges are still in place, but they've been further augmented with a SunPro tachometer strapped to the column and a set of auxiliary units installed underneath the dash. Other than an updated AM/FM/AUX stereo and seatbelts, options are sparse, but this droptop was built to be purely driven and the tall B&M launch-control shifter for the Muncie 4-speed manual is the biggest sign of that point. The black convertible top is all new and fits so well that it feels wrong to put it down and wrinkle it, but don't worry, the car also comes with a boot cover to keep things tidy when it is down. The back seat barely looks used, and the correct large-loop black carpet is in great shape as well, tying the whole cabin in nicely. The trunk is neatly finished with a correct plaid mat, and it houses a full-size spare and jack set just in case you ever need it.
For power, there's a built-up 327 cubic inch V8 that was put together by the pros at Kroyer Racing Engines, and it features forged SRP pistons, Eagle rods, and an upgraded .490 Comp cam that gives it an awesome idle, nice lope, and plenty of mid-range punch. The block is topped with a Holley carb and Edelbrock intake, and it breathes easy through a set of long-tube headers that feed the dual exhaust below. But perhaps more significant than the engine's spec list is the slick look of the engine bay itself, which was carefully disassembled and each component was painted or polished, right down to the blue plug wires. Plenty of polished pieces and chrome add some sparkle and the overall look is modern and clean, thanks in large part to the bright valve covers and bright air cleaner. An aluminum radiator keeps the whole show nice and cool, while long-tube headers feed a custom dual exhaust system that gives it a great sound and the undercarriage is very solid and presentable as well. A Muncie M-22 4-speed manual transmission makes driving that much more pleasurable, as there is nothing quite as exciting as cycling through gears in a vintage droptop. Factory-style GM Rally wheels have a traditional look and wear modern 205/70/14 blackwall radials.
Nicely restored and ready to rock, this turn-key droptop represents a lot of value for the hobby. Call us soon, because this good looker won't last long. Call today!
