REBUILT 350CI, BORED .30 OVER, RV CAM, CRAGAR SS RIMS, VERY SOLID 68 CAMARO

One of the most common questions we get about the cars in our showroom is, "Why is the owner selling it?" In the case of this clean 1968 Camaro, it's for a good cause because the owner is pursuing his dream of opening his own business. So if you're in search of a nice F-body, you can own this one and help the economy at the same time.

Purchased as a bare shell with a rebuilt rear end, most of the components that went into it are brand new. It's not pedigreed or matching-numbers or ultra-rare, but rather a great driver and Saturday night special that does a lot of things right. All the new steel in the body mean that the Orange paint has a fantastic shine and you can trust the new sheetmetal to not be full of tinworm. Black SS stripes, a ducktail spoiler, and a blacked-out grille give it that aggressive Camaro look that everyone loves, and a cowl-induction hood can only help. Nice chrome bumpers, lots of polished stainless trim, and correct Camaro emblems add a little sparkle that suits the car just fine.

The black houndstooth interior is also almost entirely new, offering a set of upscale-looking buckets that really dress up the Camaro's passenger compartment. New door panels, fresh black carpets, and a center console make it easy to love and despite the myriad of options available, a factory-style steering wheel was installed. They did color a little outside the lines with a set of Auto Meter Ultra Light auxiliary gauges in the center console, much like the factory equipment but a lot more accurate, and there are modern mechanicals behind the factory A/C setup. A hidden AM/FM/CD stereo system sounds good and you know how much we love the horseshoe shifters. The trunk is outfitted with the best-fitting mat we've ever seen and we're impressed by how the black stripes even wrap into the trunk opening, suggesting a careful painter at work.

The car was built to drive, and thanks to a 350 cubic inch V8 with an .030 overbore, it excels at that particular task. There's an upgraded camshaft, an Edelbrock intake and 4-barrel carburetor, and an MSD ignition system, all designed to make this car reliable and powerful at the same time. It was never meant to be a points competitor on the show field, but the chrome valve covers and air cleaner combine with the Chevy Orange engine block to make an attractive-looking package. Both the steering box and the entire front suspension were restored and the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission was rebuilt before being reinstalled. The 10-bolt rear end was rebuilt when the car was first discovered, so other than a check-up, it was used as-is and doesn't complain. A Flowmaster exhaust system gives it a great sound track and like I said earlier, all the new sheetmetal makes for a pretty tidy undercarriage. Period Cragar mags are an awesome '60s look and carry 215/65/15 front and 255/60/15 rear white-letter radials.

So help a guy out and buy his really awesome and extremely affordable Camaro. You won't regret it and you can feel good about doing a good deed. Call today!
