Classic Car Overview
1968 Chevrolet Camaro $34,995
There are enough stock Camaros out there that its often refreshing to see one thats tastefully customized to make it stand out. No, theres nothing drastic, but the beautiful Garnet Red paint is a vast improvement over the original Ash Gold, and it was professionally done to a very high standard. That means clean bodywork with a cowl-induction hood, a ducktail spoiler out back, and those awesome stripes that highlight all the cars most dramatic curves. The work was quite nicely done a few years ago and is holding up well, with a nice, soft shine to the finish and even 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. That cool stripe work was actually done freehand by Gator Stripes, a pro pinstriper who specializes in show cars that get noticed. The chrome bumpers are in very good shape and the stainless trim is probably original, so it might show a few signs of age, but its not a big deal. Its not quite a show car, but if you like your Camaros a little customized, this is an excellent choice.
Beautiful tan ultraleather (vinyl) on the low-back buckets give this 68 an elegant, upscale look thats still Camaro but so much more. The rest of the interior was freshened at the same time, so there are matching tan carpets on the floor, custom door panels, and a beautifully fitted headliner overhead. Even the dash pad and steering column were wrapped in the same soft tan upholstery! A center console is always a welcome option, and it has been painted to match the bodywork, as have the dash panels and steering wheel, adding a little contrast that seems just right. The factory gauges are gone, replaced by a set of Dakota Digital instruments that fit in the original round pods for a very trick look. For entertainment, theres an AM/FM/cassette stereo in the center stack and the aftermarket A/C is fully operational and blows cold today. The trunk is outfitted with those same plush tan carpets and a cool cover for the battery thats tucked into the corner.
The stout 350 cubic inch small block is dressed to play with a color-matched air cleaner, accessory drive, and block, adding to the custom feel. Theres a bit of chrome and polished aluminum for contrast and the performance hardware is legit. Theres a big Edelbrock carburetor up top, a polished aluminum intake manifold, and a reasonably healthy cam inside that makes it feel punchy. It runs quite well with that characteristic small block sound, and despite what the big block guys say, theres enough torque under the hood to make quite a bit of tire smoke if thats your bent. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission snaps through the gears without hesitation and powers the stock 10-bolt rear end. Long-tube headers and Flowmaster mufflers make for a most awesome soundtrack following this neat little coupe, and traditional Weld Pro-Star wheels and 215/60/15 blackwall radials look good and handle nicely.
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 almost 50 years ago. Call now!
