DESCRIPTION

If you want a classic car to drive but don't want one that's been cobbled together or overbuilt enough to lose its vintage spirit, this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Convertible would be the smart choice. From the matching-numbers 327 to the gorgeous Butternut Yellow paint, this sizzling droptop is the kind of classic that more than delivers on the fun promised by its look.



It's rare to find a no-stories Camaro these days, what with all the botched restorations, thrown-together basket cases, and over-the-top resto-mods running around, but this one is just what it appears to be. With a few minor signs of use and careful ownership throughout its life, it's just a clean, honest Camaro convertible. Most of the indicators of an SS are present, although there's no way to be certain given the vagaries of the GM cowl tags in 1968 and no reliable database like Ford has with Marti for post-1967 vehicles. Although it was originally Ash Gold, this one sports a deep coat of urethane in elegant Butternut Yellow, a hue that's one of the best complementary colors you'll ever see on F-body bodywork. Workmanship is good all around, with no signs of any major repairs in this car's history, and even though the paint job is older it still presents as a high driver-grade vehicle. Yes, it's just as nice as it looks in photos. Maybe even nicer. It's not perfect, of course, but for a deliciously fun driver, this Camaro has a lot to offer. In a perfect world, that top should always be down!



There's no car where yellow-on-black doesn't work, and in this Camaro's case it's an absolute slam-dunk. With handsome vinyl upholstery, it has an OEM look and feel, with only minor signs of use to be found after years of tender loving care. The upholstery is an excellent contrast to the paint, and even the plush black carpets and matching center console with that elegant woodgrain applique and horseshoe shifter have a very uniform look. The aftermarket digital/gauges are crisp and clear, and other than that very clever upgrade (they fit perfectly into the original gauge pods) it's nice to see a Camaro without a lot of add-ons inside. With that being said, the original AM radio is no longer working and set for an upgrade, (we always recommend keeping the original in place and stashing an aftermarket unit in the glove compartment for restored-to-original cars like this) and all that faux wood inside actually looks great against the black interior. The black power top fits well and looks like it's spent most of its time in the downward position, and out back the spacious trunk was finished with gray spatter paint and houses a full-size spare and jack set.



The engine is this car's original, numbers-matching 327 cubic inch V8, which, with a 210 horsepower rating from the factory, was plenty entertaining in purely stock form. Neatly detailed in Chevy Orange with chrome valve covers and a matching chrome air cleaner, it's the kind of engine bay that gets appreciative glances because this is how most of them were when these were actually being driven in the '60s and '70s. A Powerglide automatic transmission and a set of relatively tall gears in the 10-bolt out back make this a relaxed cruiser on the highway, where you can enjoy the burble of the V8 and still get reasonably good gas mileage. The dual exhaust system is new and sounds great, while power steering and power brakes ensure a smooth ride anytime out. Rally wheels would've been original equipment on the Camaro and always look great, and they wear 215/70/14 BFGoodrich white-letter radials.



So if a clean, honest, droptop Camaro with a whole lot of charm and good performance has been on your wish list, we can recommend this one with confidence. Call today!
