A well-executed, high impact color scheme draped over a classic muscle car is always going to be a recipe for curb appeal, but this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro has even more going for it than that. With some serious power under the hood and several well-chosen aftermarket upgrades, it provides a driving experience very much on a par with its undeniable magnetism.
When this Chevy rolled off the assembly line, it was carrying a fairly sedate Ermine white paint job, so it took a blend of inspiration and craftsmanship to transform it into the ultra-bold street machine it is today. Its black backdrop is nice and even, and with a solid clearcoat sitting on top, has a strong shine. Get up close and you won't find anything to diminish your enthusiasm, but you will notice some great details. Those painted flames extending back from the front end have very sharp edges and you can even see some pearl in them that provides an almost 3D effect. The aggressive hood scoop adds aftermarket cachet and really blends well with the car's other features. There's plenty of fit and finish on display to accompany this Camaro's high impact look - it's well aligned from front to back and you'll find a new windshield sitting up front, along with clean glass surrounding the rest of the cabin. The badging has been deleted off the front fenders to allow those flames to really stand out, but the remaining chrome is securely in place - both bumpers are unblemished and level, and some well-focused attention to the rest of the trim can bring the rest of the exterior to top form.
The black vinyl interior has been refurbished while largely retaining its factory configuration and it exudes some serious vintage muscle car mojo. Both the front buckets and rear bench seat show only very light usage and when you scan the rest of the cabin, everything looks very clean. The door panels and quarter trim in back appear to have been fairly recently installed, and a nice expanse of black carpeting runs the length of the floor. Climb inside and take hold of the custom SS-branded steering wheel and you'll find the original gauges still easily readable in the instrument cluster, joined by a tach mounted on the steering column and a trio of aftermarket gauges sitting at the front of the center console. In-dash vents are on both sides of the dash, and while this classic doesn't currently feature air conditioning, it did at one time and with the plumbing in place you'll be a step ahead should you decide to add it back. Everything looks good in the trunk area - clean fabric lines the floor and everything within view looks solid.
The theme under the hood centers on exhilarating yet dependable power. The 383 cubic inch stroked V8 sitting at the center of the very clean engine compartment starts easily, packs serious punch and teams with a rock-solid 3-speed automatic TH350 transmission. There's a nice collection of Edelbrock components on hand - a sharp looking air cleaner and valve covers enhance the powerplant's appearance, and a 4-barrel carb and Performer intake take its power game up a few notches. 4-wheel power disc brakes now sit at all four corners for plenty of stopping power and with power steering on board, this vintage Camaro is an easy navigator as it prowls the asphalt on a set of 18" Eagle wheels - whose black color is a perfect complement to the rest of the car - outfitted with Riken tires.
This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is sure to attract attention and is equipped for high-performance action. Call today!
