The appeal of a first-generation Camaro is undeniable - they're like a universal language to classic enthusiasts - but many of them represent some serious challenges as far as road-readiness is concerned. You'll have no such worries with this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. It's a very strong driver, so those good times behind the wheel can get started right away.
Clad in its bright red paint, this '68 will make a strong impression. The Camaro may have been a relatively late arrival to the muscle car wars of the '60s, but Chevy more than made up for it by equipping its prized model with some serious style, all of which is well represented here. While a thorough multi-stage detailing and some minor adjustments will take this Camaro's curb appeal to an even higher level, make no mistake: it's a head turner just as it stands right now. A number of the finishing details so often missing on its counterparts have been taken care of - up front, the jet black Camaro grille looks very clean over the fresh-looking front bumper and lower air dam, and the appearance of the door handles, mirrors and trim suggests all of them were fairly recently replaced. That prominent cowl hood and rear spoiler, combined with a relatively badgeless appearance, gives this classic Chevy an awesome custom appeal without straying too far from the magic formula that made the model such a winner in the first place.
Climb inside and you'll be surrounded by a classic interior that checks all the most important boxes. From the thoroughly refurbished front buckets and rear bench seat to the flush fitting door panels on each side, to the snug-fitting headliner on down to the fresh black carpeting lining the floor, this is a great vintage driving environment. A very sharp, updated steering wheel sits on the column, while just in front of it, a supple-looking dash pad spans the width of the cabin and shows no signs of any cracks - always a welcome sight with UV sensitive black upholstery. The factory speedometer and tach in the instrument cluster still work just as intended. Raise the deck lid and you'll find a fresh-looking rubber seal underneath to keep the elements out and from this vantage point you can see that the components of the trunk area look nice and solid.
This Camaro is ready to hit the asphalt just as soon as you get it home. Armed with a Holley 4-barrel carb, the 396 cubic inch V8 lurking under the cowl hood is in very good form, starting right up and pulling with plenty of conviction as it sends a nice, deep exhaust note into the long tube headers leading out to its dual exhaust. With a featured 4-speed manual transmission sitting just behind the powerplant, this classic Chevy offers a great ""hands on"" driving experience. A number of components, including the alternator, master cylinder, power booster, belts and hoses, have been recently replaced for added dependability while an HEI ignition has been added to maximize available spark. You'll also find power disc brakes at all four corners, so stops come fast and easy as this vintage Camaro cruises on its set of 15"" reproduction Rally wheels with centers painted to match the exterior and wrapped with Nankang tires.
