Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is pleased to offer for sale this gorgeous deep sapphire blue 1968 Chevrolet Camaro. This car gleams like a jewel in the sun, with the sapphire blue sparkling, and the contrasting white Z28 style stripes jumping out at you. The 1968 Camaro retains the body styling and clean look of the 1967, sans the vent wing windows, as a result of Chevrolet's introduction of "Astro Ventilation" for 1968. Under the cowl hood of this Camaro lurks a potent 350 CID V8, topped by a 4BBL carb and aluminum intake. Headers improve exhaust scavenging, and the dual exhaust sounds great. HEI ignition has been added to improve spark delivery and enhance combustion. The chrome air filter element housing and valve cover gaskets add some dress-up, and the addition of air conditioning makes this a true year 'round driver candidate. Out behind the throaty 350 is a 3-speed TH350 automatic transmission, which sends the power to the 10-bolt rear end. The addition of front disc brakes, with their cross-drilled and slotted front rotors, helps improve the stopping capability considerably vs. the "all drum" Camaros. Wheel hop during hard launches is nearly eliminated by the addition of slapper bars out back, and a beefy stabilizer bar has been added to reduce axle swing during cornering. This car rides on a set of BF Goodrich Radial T/A tires (P225/60R15 up front, P255/60R15 out back), which are mounted on traditional "rallye wheels", with their chrome beauty rings; which combine to add to the vintage look of this 1968 Camaro. Inside, you'll note that the optional gauge package provides another level of vintage authenticity, with the staggered "sawtooth" gauges in the console, plus the "tick-tock-tach" configuration of tach and clock in the same nacelle to the right of the speedometer. The "staple" shifter (sometimes also referred to as "his and hers") lever finishes off the traditional look. The black carpet is in good condition, and the black synthetic leather seating and trim are all in good condition, with nary a serious blemish. The vintage large diameter/thin rim steering wheel looks just right. One addition that you may not have expected, but will certainly appreciate, is the addition of a 3-point seat belt system for the front seat occupants. A Kenwood AM/FM/Cassette head unit provides the tunes. Additional features and options on this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro for sale include Air Conditioning, AM/FM/Cassette Radio, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Raised White Letter Radial Tires, Rally Wheels, Seat Belts, and Vinyl Interior.
