TOP NOTCH, LT1 EFI 350 V8, 4L60E TRANS, A/C, 4 WHL DISCS, BUILT FOR GM VP, PPG

There's definitely an elusive combination that makes some cars great, and leaves other cars wanting. This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro nails it, ranging from a great color combination, to a powerful fuel injected small block with an overdrive gearbox attached to it. This one has the iconic Camaro appearance with exotic touches throughout...but what else would you expect from an award-winning custom restomod first built for a General Motors VP?

There are some great reasons why the paint is so striking on this one. This paint is so precise from PPG that its never even been buffed. The Pearl Metallic Yellow has so much depth that changes its tones depending on how the light hits it. So the mature darker luster this has in our showroom completely turns around, and shines so bright that it looks like it belongs on a Ferrari out on the show field. But no matter this yellow's tone, it looks amazing thanks to a body that's precision straight. Add in the uniform gaps, and you have a nearly 50 year-old vehicle whose doors that shut with modern confidence. This one has all the right Super Sport touches like the blacked-out grille and cowl induction hood, but you know it is far from stock. This has attention-grabbing custom touches like the painted taillight panel, racing gas cap, and of course, the Boyd Coddington Smoothie 17" wheels that shine as bright as the paint.

Inside there is no denying that this Camaro is something special. The power bucket seats were taken from a '94 Camaro and reupholstered in leather, with yellow inserts that match the exterior. The door panels have been treated to this same yellow and black custom treatment. In between the two modern buckets is a custom-built center console that houses the contemporary gear lever, and large tachometer prominently mounted in the center. The driver gets a three-spoke steering wheel, and beyond that, a full set of Classic Instruments gauges has been mounted in the Camaro's original stylish dual barrel setup. It's no surprise that this restomod has been specially set up for modern convenience, so you and your passengers can enjoy features such as the AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice cold air conditioning running modern R-134a.

But more than anything else, your going to love the engine bay. The heart of this beast is a fuel-injected 350 cubic-inch LT1 crate motor, built an installed around 3,000 miles ago. You'll love popping the hood at all the car shows and watching the crowds marvel at the custum, full silver painted components that look great in the yellow engine bay. This is truly built for presentation with smoothed firewall, all the wires hidden, and the hoses tight and neat (even the battery was moved to the trunk for better weight distribution and a cleaner look.) But just because the engine bay can win awards on its own, doesn't mean speed was left out of this custom build. It can run hard with a Be Cool aluminum radiator and electronic ignition. The custom-built Hooker Competition headers add power, and a wicked growl, to the H-pipe performance dual exhaust. This crate V8 screamer needs stout parts to get all the power to the ground, and that's why it had a GM 4L60E four-speed automatic transmission installed when the engine was built in 2003. But all this power is nothing without control. That's why the suspension was upgraded with goodies like a Detroit Speed front subframe, one-inch front sway bar, and Koni shocks all around. Keeping you in contact with the road is a grippy set of expensive Cooper Zeon tires, backed up by four-wheel disc brakes. But as much as this can tear up the streets, this one is an all-around performer. After all, this is also a power steering car with an overdrive transmission that feeds a versatile 3.42 rear end.

There are no compromises in the construction of this Camaro restomod. We have plenty more upgrades to tell you, but for now, just know that this classic was appraised a few years ago at $125K. Now's your opportunity to get this custom build for less than half of that! Call today!!
