1968 Chevrolet Camaro
Car for sale by Smoky Mountain Traders in Maryville, Tennessee 37801
With all the hoopla surrounding the new Camaro 1LE, let's look back at the original.
The story of the ZL1 Camaro, fitted with that rarest of the rare, all-aluminum 427 big-block V-8, is one that has often been told: How only 69 were made, how they exploited the GM option-ordering system, and how they've become the Camaro guy's ultimate Camaro.
Classic Car Overview
On the inside, its kept like it would have been when it terrorized the roads in 68. One of the first thing youll notice is the rare option of the Deluxe Interior with a Bench Seat. Both seat covers are in great condition along with the padding. Looking at the door panels they are in like new condition from the trim to the Power Windows Control. Yes, this car came with Power Windows and theyre all working. Next, youll notice the carpet and seal plates were replaced along with the headliner that has an excellent fit! As you sit down youll notice it has had the Stuart Warner gauges and Tach added which were supplied by Bill Thomas. Looking at the dash youll also the BTRC decal that was supplied by Mr. Thomas himself during restoration. All the dash trim and gauges are in excellent condition and working as they should.
Under the hood of this car is what we are all looking forward to. It features the Matching Numbers 396 block which is rarity for a Bill Thomas car, because most of his builds had the 427 transplant. However, the original owner wanted to stay with the 396 and Mr. Thomas transformed Chevrolets 396 into a sleeper big block that could terrorize any 427 on the street in 68. When restored Troy made sure to verify with Mr. Thomas to keep this car as close to what he original produced as possible. He used the original rectangle-port heads installed by Mr. Thomas in 68. Its set up with the Offenhauser Intake and Two Carter AFB Four Barrel Carbs, and a Comp Cams solid-lifter set up like what was used in 68 was installed. The engine is mated to the Turbo 400 Trans and the 12 Bolt Posi Rear with Bill Thomas traction bars. For Exhaust, it has Coated Hooker Headers with dual pipes and the stock style dual muffler. This car comes with Power Steering and Power Brakes with disc on the front. All the brakes lines were replaced, along with the fuel lines and gas tank. Also, under the front the upper and lower control arm bushings, ball joints, and end link bushings were replaced. The floors look phenomenal in this Camaro and the Frame is equally impressive. Frame connectors had also been added and all the bushings are in excellent condition as well.
