Vehicle Description

This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS 396 is an all-red coupe with its numbers-matching motor and four-speed. And if that wasn't tantalizing enough, you're going to see investments to make it shine brighter, feel more comfortable, and be more powerful. So it's the ideal mix of history with all the right well-integrated upgrades.

This was born a Matador Red coupe, which is always a desirable color for a hot big block Camaro. It only gets better as you see this one has been given the proper attention it deserves. So the red has a nice gloss and shine from a more modern clearcoat respray later in life. It helps with the aggressive attitude that's furthered by sporty SS details, like the correct D90 stinger stripe painted on top, the faux velocity stakes in the hood, and the full-width rear spoiler. But of course, the piece that you'll love the most is the Rally Sport grille with hideaway headlights. And this blacked-out front end even coordinates with pieces like the front chin spoiler and deeply tinted windows. This coupe really is a thoughtful total package. Even the chrome on the bumpers and nice brightwork are amplified by the set of 18-inch polished American Racing alloys.

Because the exterior red was stunning, you'll love when the theme continues inside. Not only is this the ideal color, but also this was born with the premium interior. So you get nice extra touches like the better door panels with full armrest and insignia trim seats. And since there was a solid investment in here, you really get to show off this full premium interior with pride. They aimed to keep a very stock style, and so even the upgrades were well integrated. That's why the AM/FM digital tuner is a retro-style unit. The air conditioning even has the classic slider look, and it likely only needs a recharge of modern R134a to blow ideally cold. Camaros are very much built for the driver, and that's why you get best features like front bucket seats, a center console in-between, and a grippy SS steering wheel. The classic dual pod gauge panel now has a full set of readouts from Classic Instruments, and the added tach goes quite well with the Hurst shifter.

Under the hood is the numbers-matching 396 cubic-inch V8. While originality is always great to have, big block machines are also great at providing big power. So they built on that history with a performance package that's also sharp and shiny enough to be ready for the car show. This has upgraded power with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer RPM intake, and Edelbrock Performer RPM aluminum heads. It's supported by all the right pieces, including a March serpentine belt system, MSD Pro Billet distributor, cast finned valve covers, and an aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The mighty V8 exhales with added power and authority as Patriot ceramic coated headers feed the dual exhaust. And the numbers-matching four-speed manual transmission means you're in complete control of the power and thunder this motor produces. And speaking of control, power steering, modern sport tires, and upgraded four-wheel power disc brakes really let you enjoy this powerful Camaro to the fullest.

This is the classic big block Chevy that maximizes its best features with solid investments for both power and poise. So if you want a classic that truly offers all the best, call today!
