Offered here is a built, not bought 1968 Chevrolet Camaro that's ready for some fun on the road, and maybe a few car events. Our client acquired the car from a retired gentleman a few years ago, and spent a lot of time and money making it one mean street machine. The car was restored and finished in Hugger Orange over a restored Black interior.
The immediately recognizable stance and silhouette of the first generation Camaro was changed slightly during the restoration. We should first mention that the body is all original - no panels have been replacedThe cowl-induction hood with a larger cowl than the factory unit is the most obvious change. In addition, the car has a slight forward rake thanks to Hotchkis Suspension components, and a set of 17” Boyd Coddington multi-piece billet wheels finish off the look. A rear spoiler, color matched front spoiler, and “SS” badges on the front fender are other highlights of the exterior. The car was originally Teal Blue (code L) but the Hugger Orange fits this car's personality a little better than a somewhat subdued hue of Teal.
A number of changes are immediately visible once you've taken a good look at the interior. The car left the factory with black trimmed bucket seats, which remain in the car now. An AutoMeter Tach and shift light combination, AutoMeter auxiliary gauges, a Sidewinder Shifter, and Kenwood stereo stand out in the otherwise standard looking interior. The interior is in very good condition with nice upholstery on the seats and door cards, and new carpeting underfoot.
Under the hood is a L88 427ci V8 mated to a TH400 transmission. The engine has a number of aftermarket components that have been added. Holley 4bbl carburetor, Weiand intake manifold, MSD Ignition, aluminum radiator, and Mickey Thompson valve covers are a few highlights of the drivetrain. White coated headers end in a pair of Flowmaster mufflers at the rear of the car.
It is a remarkable build with just over 1,500 miles recorded since completion. It runs extremely well and is ready for some fun runs down the drag strip, or cruising to car shows.
