1968 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
The Camaro, manufactured by Chevrolet, was hardly a new idea; more
like a hurried attempt to keep up with the recently
launched/remarkably successful Ford Mustang. It started as a pony
car, but later introduced muscle car versions in the market.
Launched on September 29, 1966, the Camaro comes in five distinct
generations, with the last one being introduced on March 16,
For consignment a resto-mod version of the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro.
This now high performance 383ci stroker capable of a consigner
stated 465 horses, and now completely redone with some MHT U-110
Rambler Big Wheels and low-profile rubber we now have a pro street
savvy convertible draped with a leather interior. Read on and you
too will be impressed!!
Burgundy paint about 2 miles deep covers all the straight rust-free
exterior slabs which mind their gaps like a precision marching
band. We will throw on a tan stripe which wraps around the hidden
headlight grille, and the tan cloth convertible top and folks we
definitely have a looker, and a cooker. This top has a nice clear
plastic window. The SS grille is straight horizontal lines in
chromed glory and includes 2 hidden headlight covers off the same
pattern and an SS badge in the center. A large rear facing (cowl
induction) hood scoop is now on top of the new hood, and the
burgundy is just miles deep everywhere you look. A thin trim line
of chrome is seen running around the wheel wells, along the rocker
and the bottom, and just a bit of bling along with the MHT U-110
Rambler big wheels nicely polished in 17 inch upfront and 18 inch
on the rear. Speaking of the rear, a beautiful small spoiler now
adorns the trunk lid, and frames the horizontal brake light setup,
again with nice bezels and a pristine rear bumper looking like it
was just dipped in chrome.
The passenger compartment utilizes plenty of pure tan leather. On
the door panels we note triangular tufted stitched pattern
surrounded by clean smooth leather, all tan, and all buttoned up
looking just great. Billet style aluminum cranks and handles now
are on these door panels. In the passenger compartment, are tufted
triangular pattern inserted into inner panels surrounded by leather
smooth bolsters. These seats are now power and are looking good and
like new. The rear bench matches and is also pristine in the same
pattern. The console, also wrapped in tan with wood applique houses
a futuristic airliner throttle styled shifter, and all is very
clean. Carpets are clean and also tan, and above is the original
style dash now with tan covering and instrument deep gauges. Gauges
are newer style, and have some digital readouts, as well as analog
pointers. The center of the dash also in wood applique, is housing
the radio, and temperature and fan sliders.
A new 383ci crate engine now adorns the restored engine bay and is
just beautiful inside under the hood. An orange block, orange valve
covers, and an orange air cleaner cover are seen along with shiny
headers, Blue Print Aluminum heads, and Comp roller rockers. This
engine sports a Lunati Flat Hydraulic Tappet cam with .557i and
.554e lifts. Below the orange air cleaner is a polished Edelbrock
intake manifold, and its fed by a single 4-barrel Holley carb also
polished. A TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is out on the back
and at 12-bolt rear axle makes the tires smoke. Just a great
presentation with the orange and polished chrome working with
supple shiny hoses and wires.
Showroom would be the word for the undercarriage with not a speck
of dirt seen, all shiny black paint and structural framing, floor
pans and wheel wells and rockers. An H pipe exhaust is now seen
snaking its way underneath to the rear off the car, and it
possesses stellar condition independent front suspension, with
tubular control arms, and leaf spring rear suspension. Wilwood disc
brakes are now on all 4 corners and new shocks are noted underneath
as well as many new parts in this restoration.
A quick starter with a great roar, and some awesome power. It
handles great with the suspension and tubular control arms, and it
a nice riding cruiser, but is really meant as a street bruiser. It
has the kick to prove it, and its bite is definitely worse than its
If you are in the market for an awesome 1968 version of the SS
Camaro, then look no further, as it is awesome, all buttoned up,
and ready to kick some street ass. Just beautifully done, and a
convertible to boot. A must see to really appreciate. A great
resto-mod, and all-around modern version of this 1968 GM car.
Completely documented and plenty of receipts this is the real deal
when it comes to a redux.
