This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS tribute convertible has the bright and coordinated look of quite a fun car. And as you look at the total package, you can tell it was made to be enjoyed. After all, with an enhanced V8, overdrive transmission, and four-wheel disc brakes, it's the classic hidden headlight drop-top you're going to take on road trips near and far.
Hugger Orange is an aggressive color that is always perfect on these first-gen Camaros. The paint has a good gloss that shows off an attractive shine every time you take this convertible out for a sunny day cruise - exactly what you want in a sunshine-friendly drop-top. It's part of a package where chrome bumpers and trim have good shine, lines are straight, and doors shut solidly. With the white racing stripes painted on, it makes for an attractive coordination with the convertible top. So this one really does know how to command attention from blocks away. It's part of an overall theme that looks great without getting too fancy that you'll be afraid to drive it. After all, those 17-inch Foose wheels not only add to the shine, but they also let you upgrade to your favorite set of modern sport tires. And speaking of sporty, this has desirable features for the first-gen Camaro, like the D80 rear spoiler and tall cowl hood. And of course, the upgrade to the Rally Sport hidden headlight front end makes this absolutely iconic.
The white interior gives you the same appeal as the exterior accents, so this one has a nice color combo with the top up or down. The clean look of the door panels, dash, seats, and trim make this feel like a well-respected machine. And it also has the right details like a matching convertible boot and under-dash courtesy lights that greet you when the door opens. Bucket front seats with a center console in-between make for an inviting driver's atmosphere. There are the right classic pieces, like the horseshoe shifter and a grippy RS steering wheel. Plus, there are well-integrated upgrades, like the SunPro aux gauges and the retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with an iPod input and upgraded speakers. So it all makes for a classic that's ready to cruise.
Under the hood is a 327 cubic-inch V8. The clean and tidy setup, and there are good fundamentals like new hoses, belts, and wires that tell you this has been given the right investments. And there's also plenty of polish on the firewall, radiator shroud, valve covers, air grabber, and more. More than just style, this V8 has added substance with power upgrades, including an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock aluminum intake, HEI coil, and long tube headers feeding the dual exhaust and Flowmaster mufflers. The 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission is a great upgrade that has an ideal pairing with a stout construction and easy overdrive cruising. Power steering is good for easy cruising, and the combo of four-wheel power disc brakes and ZR-rated sports tires gives this added confidence out on the road.
This is the RS tribute drop-top with a thoughtful level of features to make sure you have a car that's easy to take anywhere and memorable everywhere you arrive. So don't let it slip away, call today!
