1968 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
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
History: This stunning '68 has just completed a total restoration. Beginning on a rotisserie, every imperfect metal part or piece was replaced. Then it was epoxy primed with Dupont urethane and painted 360 degrees. Next we wet sanded and buffed to a deep gloss mirror finish. Almost every part used in the restoration is new. Now complete, the '68 is a virtually new classic muscle car. Driving the car is the ultimate pure muscle experience. The deep powerful exhaust and thumping cam are music to the knowing and adrenalin goes off the charts as over 500 screaming horses are turned loose.
Exterior: Fresh Burgundy Dupont Urethane metal flake paint with wide silver stripes. Almost every part is new including; all of the chrome, the labels and emblems, the tires and rims, 225/40 front and 265/45 rear and 17" American Racing Magnum Thrust rims, front and rear spoilers, gas tank, side marker lights, Flow Master exhaust, four way disc brakes, brake lines, shocks, door gaskets and window felt, front and rear sway bars, traction bars 2" Hodgkins drop kit in front, 3" drop kit in rear, and frame connectors.
Interior: The seats have been re foamed and re covered in black with custom burgundy inserts. Also new are; door panels, upgraded floor mats, dash mat, headliner, sail panels, sill plates, package tray with speakers, and Painless wiring harness. The custom console has the engine gauges and tach, it has a wooden steering wheel, and the dash has been meticulously restored.
Engine and Drive Train: Big block 454 V8, Muncie M21 4 speed with Hurst Competition Plus shifter. The gear is a "streetable" 308. The fresh build includes a performance cam, forged pop up pistons, Eaton SS valves and Eaton crankshaft. The motor has; a Holly 780 carb with electric choke, a high rise Edlebrock aluminum intake, XL ignition, stainless big tube headers and a performance vibration damper.
