WELL-PRESERVED OLDER RESTO, TUNED 327 CI, 4-SPEED, FRONT DISC, OWNERS MANUAL!
It's hard to go wrong with a 1968 Camaro SS finished in a gorgeous color combination and with a sweet-running small block under the hood. The timeless shape will always look good, and these cars garner instant respect on the road and on the show field. The old adage that special cars will always be special most certainly applies to early F-bodies, and someone invested a lot of time in this one to make it worthy of a closer look.
The bodywork on this tidy little Camaro was restored some time ago, but it still presents as a great weekend driver that you'll happily show off at the local cruise night. The workmanship at the time seems to have been professional, with straight panels and good gaps throughout. Yeah, it shows a little shelf wear, but that's what happens when you own one of the most popular and fun-to-drive cars ever created: you want to drive it. The color was borrowed from the Corvette pallet, looking suspiciously like 1993 Anniversary Red and the silver SS stripes are a great alternative to regular old white. A cowl induction hood with hood pins and factory ducktail spoiler give it a classic look and with the dark tinted windows, it definitely has a sinister stance. There's no way of knowing whether this is a real SS, but does it really matter at this point? It certainly carries the requisite badging and gas cap and nails the look perfectly.
Recently freshened, the black bucket seat interior is well turned out, and those aggressively bolstered aftermarket buckets look right at home in the vintage Camaro's passenger compartment. Everything else is equally well presented, with new door panels and carpets plus a taut, neat headliner overhead. A 4-speed with Hurst cue ball shifter lives in a factory center console fitted with aftermarket auxiliary gauges. There's also a tach on the steering column, right in front of the original instruments, which are in good condition. A later AM/FM/cassette stereo head unit that fits in the original location, so no cutting was required and a modern upgrade would be a smart choice if you're going to drive the car (unless, of course, you still have your mix tapes from the '80s). The spatter-finish trunk looks clean and solid, and there's a full-sized spare back there so you can hit the road without worries.
'327 badges on the flanks boast about the mean little small block under the hood. Rebuilt just a few thousand miles ago, it runs beautifully, with a crisp snarl from the exhaust and quick reflexes on the road. Horsepower enhancers include an Edelbrock intake and carburetor along with some long-tube headers, and it is nicely dressed with lots of chrome. The Chevy Orange paint gives it a nice OEM vibe, while the chrome dress-up parts brighten it up enough that you'll be anxious to open the hood every chance you get. Underneath, the body tub is solid with good floors and a set of subframe connectors, and the suspension was recently rebuilt with traction bars added out back so it hooks up hard. Handsome aluminum wheels always look great on early Camaros, and this one wears staggered 215/65/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich radials.
This is a Camaro you can drive and enjoy every day without worries and the price is right. Call today!
