RECENT FULL-BLOWN RESTO, ALL BACK TO STOCK SPECS, #'S MATCHING 350 V8, 4-SPEED!!
You can look at a lot of Camaros and not find another one as nice as this 1968 SS. Far from being your garden-variety F-body, it's got a great factory look, a sweet-running numbers matching small block, and one of the prettiest interiors we've seen in a long while. Stop dreaming and do something about your Camaro addiction!
Personally, I prefer it when they stick to the factory specs in a restoration, and for this Camaro, that means subtle Butternut Yellow paint, a black vinyl top, and matching stripes down the flanks. It also means clean bodywork with a stock hood, a ducktail spoiler out back, and just a hint of a chin spoiler up front, which is how a great many Camaros were outfitted in 1968. The work was quite nicely done a few years ago and is holding up well, with a nice, soft shine to the finish and decent gaps all around. Many Camaro fans like the purity of the early cars, and the '68 might be the prettiest of all with the removal of the vent windows and the addition of side-marker lights to break up the paint a little bit. The vinyl top also gives a nice contrast to the yellow paint and works well with the stripe kit, and it's all professionally installed and in very good condition. The chrome bumpers are in very good shape and the stainless trim is probably original, so it might show a few signs of age. It's not a show car, but if you like your Camaros to look factory-correct, this is an excellent choice.
Fresh houndstooth seat covers on the low-back buckets give this '67 a classically '60s look that's pure Camaro. Much of the interior was freshened at the same time, so there are nice carpets on the floor and a recent headliner overhead. A center console is always a welcome option, especially when there's a 4-speed poking through it, and it carries the requisite woodgrained applique to add a little ambience to the Camaro's no-nonsense cabin. The factory gauges cover the basics, and have been joined by a column-mounted tach and three auxiliary gauges under the dash. For entertainment, there's an AM/FM/cassette stereo in the center stack and fits nicely enough that nothing had to be cut or modified to get it in there. The trunk is outfitted with a reproduction mat that fits well, and there's a full-sized spare back there, always a welcome sight.
The stout 350/295 HP small block is the original, numbers matching motor, and has been dressed to play with Edelbrock-signature air cleaner and valve covers, as well as a 4-barrel intake and carb. Of course, that's in addition to the Chevy Orange paint that belongs on every Chevy engine of the period. It runs quite well with that characteristic small block sound, and despite what the big block guys say, there's enough torque under the hood to make quite a bit of tire smoke if that's your bent. The 4-speed slams through the gears without hesitation and powers the stock rear end, which is just ahead of a brand new gas tank. Long-tube headers and Flowmaster mufflers make for a most awesome soundtrack following this neat little coupe, and traditional Rally wheels and 215/70/14 Uniroyal radials look and handle great.
Clean, fast, and fun, without all the nonsense that often comes with a vintage muscle car, this tidy Camaro does its job as well today as it did 45 years ago. Call now!
