SHOW QUALITY CUSTOM BUILD, SLICK PAINT & INTERIOR, CRATE 350 V8, 700R4 FRNT DISC
If you're looking for an early Camaro, you might be interested in this multiple-award-winning 1968 SS 350. Spectacular paint, a slick semi-custom interior, and a strong-running small block all add up to a car that will be welcome anywhere, just as long as the other guy is OK going home with the second place trophy.
You've seen regular old SS stripes on a Camaro, but this incredible two-tone F-body takes it to a while new level. The black is miles deep and complemented by House of Kolor Candy Oriental Blue over an Orion Silver base, which makes it glow from within when the light hits it just right. The split line between the colors follows the curve of the fender, and now that you've seen it rendered in such sharp contrast, I bet you take on a whole new appreciation for the curvy F-body sheetmetal. There's also a cowl induction hood with the requisite black stripes and 'COWL INDUCTION' badging, plus a ducktail spoiler out back, and it all works together to create a car that's striking and faintly familiar all at the same time. Nice chrome bumpers, proper SS badging, and dual outside mirrors give it some sparkle, and it's all in excellent shape.
The interior is a cool semi-custom, too, with factory bucket seats, original-style carpets and door panels, and an OEM dash complemented by a custom center console. Most of the parts are reproduction pieces that look correct for 1968 and are in good condition overall. But your eye is definitely drawn to that beautiful hand fabricated center console that sweeps through the interior like a wave and incorporates twin cup holders and a set of auxiliary gauges not unlike the factory did it. The shifter is a cool little item that controls the 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission, and those of you with sharp eyes will note that the spokes of the steering wheel have been painted to match. Look past the big Sunpro tachometer on the steering column and you'll see factory instruments that are in good original condition and there's a brand new Pioneer AM/FM/CD/iPod stereo system, too. There's nothing ground-breaking in the trunk, but the sheetmetal isn't going to keep you up at night worrying and there's a new reproduction mat that fits rather well.
The engine is a GM Performance Parts 350 cubic inch crate motor that slots neatly into the Camaro's engine bay like it was born there. Topped with chrome valve covers and a matching Edelbrock air cleaner, it has some sparkle to go with its hustle. A Holley double-pumper, Edelbrock Performer intake manifold, and MSD ignition system ensure that it's a smooth runner, while a set of Hedman long-tube headers use a custom dual exhaust system to make horsepower and some awesome sounds. The suspension is by Global West with 1-inch lowering springs up front to give it a perfect stance. The front brakes were upgraded to power discs and subframe connectors add some much-appreciated rigidity to the unibody shell. The 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and 3.23 gears ensure effortless highway cruising and custom-painted Torque Thrust wheels have a trick look. Staggered 18-inch Falken radials fill the fenders and look right on the vintage Camaro.
Complete with a ton of documentation and receipts on the build, this is a very nicely done early Camaro that has just enough tricks to make everyone at the next cruise night do a double-take. Call today!
