383 STROKER, TREMEC 5 SPD, CUSTOM GAUGES, X PIPE, TORQ THRUSTS, DONE RIGHT!!

So many guys dream of building their own dream Camaro, but our professional advice is to always buy the car of your dreams already finished. Let someone else build the car, then you can own it for a fraction of the investment. Admit it, this 1968 Camaro SS, with this color combination, 383 stroker motor, 5-speed, and awesome stance is the car you would have built anyway, right?

You can't do black without getting the bodywork right, so this one looks pretty good with clean flanks and good gaps all around, and the paint, while a few years old, still shines up well. A white bumble bee stripe around the nose highlights the custom '383' badges, and a cowl induction hood looks especially good on the '68s. Out back, there's the usual ducktail spoiler, along with two-element taillights and an SS gas cap, just in case anyone needed a reminder of what just passed them. The '68s lost their vent windows and gained side marker lights, so they're easy to spot and a bit more functional than the '67s, and the purity of the design remains immensely appealing. Nice chrome bumpers with rear bumper guards, bright stainless trim around the windows, and those skinny rocker panel moldings all look especially good on the black car, giving it a dressy look that doesn't blunt the aggression one bit.

Black with a code 724 red interior is an awesome combination that's both elegant and dramatic, with a timeless flair that will always look good. Restored buckets, recent carpets, and correct door panels all help give the interior a very finished look. The original gauges have been replaced by a full set of Auto Meter white-faced gauges that nestle neatly into the original instrument pods, with the auxiliary gauges down on the console the way the factory did it. Looking a little more closely at the console and you'll note that there are five forward gears on the Hurst cue ball now, a little detail that pays big dividends in terms of drivability. The factory AM radio is still in the dash, although it's probably due for an upgrade any time now, and that lovely wood-rimmed steering wheel is a great finishing touch. The trunk is neatly outfitted with a correct reproduction mat that fits superbly, as well as a full-sized spare and jack assembly.

Camaros with small blocks are typically no big deal, but when the small block is a snarling, torque-heavy 383 cubic inch stroker motor, things change. Beautifully detailed like a race piece, the potent V8 looks muscle bound sitting in the all black engine bay. Satin finished valve covers work well with all the aluminum bits surrounding the engine, and there's a lot of it: aluminum Dart heads, aluminum Edelbrock intake, aluminum valve covers. A few chrome pieces help add some contrast and the MSD ignition system and long-tube headers make it cackle. It's not particularly high-strung, so it's easy to drive in traffic, but when you open it up you'd better make sure it's pointed in the right direction because things start to happy pretty quickly. 4.10s out back aren't a big deal with the overdrive transmission and the X-pipe exhaust system sounds truly Wagnerian at full throttle. It crouches down on trick custom A-arms and rolls on polished Torque Thrust wheels with fat Michelin radials wrapped around them.
