$41,995

Vehicle Description

The year is 1968, The Redwood National Park is created in California to protect the Giant Redwoods, Evel Knevel fails to jump over the fountains at Caesar's Palace, and this awesome 1968 Hugger Orange and White Camaro rolls off the assembly line. Since then she has been rebuilt with: 383 Stroker V8 less than 4000 miles on it, Turbo 350 trans, new interior, posi 10 bolt rear end, 3.73 gears, and a serpentine belt system. The first-generation Camaro debuted in September 1966, for the 1967 model year, up to 1969 on a new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as a two-door coup´┐Ż or convertible with 2+2 seating, and a choice of 230 CID, 250 CID inline-6 or 302 CID, 307 CID, 327 CID, 350 CID, and 396 CID V8 powerplants. Concerned with the runaway success of the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet executives realized that their compact sporty car, the Corvair, would not be able to generate the sales volume of the Mustang due to its rear-engine design, as well as declining sales, partly due to the negative publicity from Ralph Nader's book, Unsafe at Any Speed. Therefore, the Camaro was touted as having the same conventional rear-drive, front-engine configuration as the Mustang and Chevy II Nova. In addition, the Camaro was designed to fit a variety of power plants in the engine bay. The first-generation Camaro lasted until the 1969 model year and eventually inspired the design of the new retro fifth-generation Camaro.
