1968 Chevrolet Camaro
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
This Rally Green Camaro Coupe is in terrific original unrestored condition. Well cared for its entire life the Camaro sports its numbers matching 327 V8 that produces a healthy 210 horsepower. Put in motion by the 4-speed manual transmission and power steering the Camaro runs and drives great with nary a squeak or rattle. The clutch assembly is brand new as well as the new Hurst shifter. The original 1968 shifter is included with the car as well. In the cabin is a pair of black vinyl bucket seats and the sporty center console. The spartan dashboard features basic controls and an AM radio. Under the hood the original 327 cubic inch V8 resides as it has since 1968. This un-modified power plant even features the functioning original, mandated, smog pump. The exterior of the car is in very good condition with no signs of damage and a shiny paint surface. At some point a previous owner installed a “SS” style gas cap on this entry level V8 coupe. The older vinyl top looks good with a few imperfections. The trunk floor is in excellent condition and certainly does not show its age. The stock steel wheels feature original hubcaps and roll on radial white-lettered tires. Also included is the original Owner’s Manual as well as the sought after original Protect-o-Plate. In ideal “driver” condition, this Camaro coupe is certainly a fun classic that can be enjoyed every day!
