With aggressive LS3 power, a six-speed manual transmission, four-wheel disc brakes, and an A/C interior, this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is both an SS tribute and one of the best all-around restomods you can get your hands on right now. And as you check out all the details, you can really tell this was a thoughtful build coming off of long-term ownership.
This car has been with the same owner for about the last 15 years, but it was only in the last few years that this one was fully upgraded into the restomod you see today. And so you get a car that was given thoughtful additions. The Fathom Blue paint is a great color because it was only offered in the first-gen on the '68 car. Today it is a more modern two-stage application that retains a good look. This mix of classic style with modern additions sets the true theme of this coupe. The front chin spoiler, blackout grille, full-width rear spoiler, and cowl hood pay tribute to what you love in a first-gen Camaro Super Sport. And the clean lines and bright bumpers make for a good classic. But those 15-inch polished Torq Thrust wheels and awesome forward-leaning stance do a great job of announcing an upgraded performance machine.
The black interior has a clean style that's quite inviting. The seats are another great way this one shows off how it has been thoughtfully upgraded. The front buckets are modern Procar units with plenty of terrific bolstering. But those houndstooth cloth inserts are pure vintage Camaro cool. There are well-integrated features like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth, JBL speakers, USB plugs in the dash, and the original heater controls now have a full Vintage Air A/C setup. And of course, as a true restomod, it's made to be a great driver. You have a walnut wood-rimmed steering wheel, a Flaming River tilt column, a Hurst floor shifter, and Dakota Digital VHX gauges.
The heart of this beast is a 6.2-liter fuel-injected LS3 V8. Oh yes, this is a more modern motor borrowed from a 2013 Camaro SS and installed in 2020. And since those cars were 400+ horsepower juggernauts, it's a terrific upgrade in this classic that still keeps with the Camaro lineage. There are even the right supporting components, like a large Griffin aluminum radiator, dual electric fans, and an Optima red top battery mounted in the trunk for better weight distribution. You get full control over this big power upgrade thanks to the Tremec 6060 six-speed manual transmission. This feeds a stout Ford 9-inch limited-slip rear with 4.11 gears for powerful take-offs. This was built to be both fun and strong, and so you now have subframe connectors and rear mono leaf springs with HD shackles. Add in power steering, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and four-wheel power disc brakes, and this is the powerful and confident first-gen Camaro you've always wanted.
The sale comes complete with a binder full of build receipts so you can see the big investments it takes to get a restomod like this. This is an upgraded classic that knows how to deliver big power and added comfort while still respecting its history. So don't miss out, call today!
