When it debuted in 1967, the Chevrolet Camaro was GM''s answer to the Ford Mustang -- and the two automotive icons have remained locked in a head-to-head competition for pony car dominance even today, nearly 50 years later.
The first generation Camaro has always been my favorite; this very nicely restored 1968 Camaro SS tribute has a great look with great options. It''s painted to a high standard in correct code Z "British Green" -- panels are straight with good gaps and the striping around the nose was executed perfectly. Most chrome, lenses and trim pieces have been replaced; glass is excellent. It''s a sunning color combination, and the SS badging and 17-inch Americans complete the look. It stands out among the sea of red and black Camaros, and unlike so many on the market today there have been no modifications of questionable taste.
This example was built in Norwood, Ohio, and was ordered with TR code 714 custom bucket seats. The interior shows beautifully, with new (and quite tasteful) houndstooth upholstery, door panels, carpet, gauges and console.
Under the hood is a Chevrolet 350 mated to a Powerglide automatic transmission; it''s very nicely detailed both underneath and in the engine compartment. The engine appears to have been rebuilt recently; the front end has been rebuilt, the rear suspension components are new, and all brake lines, belts, hoses and exhaust are new. The car has power steering, power brakes and rare factory a/c that works. 10-bolt rear-end.
It''s an exceptional driver restored to a very nice standard and well sorted -- there are no surprises and no excuses with this one. Definitely a head turner. Give us a call at 404-692-5250 for more information about this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro.
