Vehicle Description

The Best Muscle Cars is Proud to offer this rare L30 68 Camaro California Car !Powered by the original 327 /275 hp with an M20 4 speed transmission and factory 12 bolt rear. Custom ordered in Verduro green the Pontiac color famous on GTO's this Camaro runs and drives as it should. The 1967 RPO (regular production option) combination of the L30 327ci-275HP V8 engine with the M20 4-speed manual transmission created a true high-performance automobile, in part due to additional components automatically installed by the factory when the 4-speed was paired with the L30 engine. The details of this package were poorly documented and essentially unadvertised; probably only the most discerning people of the era realized the implications. The writers and editors of period car enthusiast magazines rarely delved deeper into available options than the basic promotional literature supplied by Chevrolet, and the Chevrolet marketers preferred to emphasize the SS models, or later, the Z28. Serious racers considered the SS and Z28 to be only starting points, with further modifications required to meet their needs. So it was not well-known (and still isn't3) that the L30/M20 Camaro was the only regular production 1967-68 Camaro outside of the SS/Z28 models to receive the heavy-duty "12-bolt" rear-end, right-side radius rod (in 1967), and multi-leaf rear springs (in 1968), as well as additional performance equipment otherwise exclusive to the SS or Z28 lines. The potential for model confusion is understandable since, without this knowledge, a L30/M20 could easily be mistaken for a SS-350 stripped of ornamentation (if the 327 was mistaken for a 350), or, if the 327ci engine was recognized as such, the L30/M20 could be considered evidence of a factory SS-327.
