With its slick black paint, menacing RS-style front end, and a
numbers-matching V8 enhanced with added power, this 1968 Chevrolet
Camaro feels like an intimidating classic. But when you also see
the comfy interior has cold-blowing A/C, you start to see this
coupe is an all-around great cruiser.
Black paint always brings out the sinister side of a
first-generation Camaro. It has a nice shine that comes from a more
modern clearcoat finish later in life. There's plenty of extra
aggression with the deep chin spoiler, power budge cowl hood, and
full-width rear spoiler. Plus, we all love the added intimidation
of the hidden headlight Rally Sport front end. And this has the
correct RS details, like the right trim and rear backup lights.
Bright chrome bumpers, polished Progressive wheels, and large dual
exhaust tips all stand out nicely with their shine while still
contributing to the overall look of a proper sporty classic.
The black interior continues the car's mean appearance. But as you
dig a little deeper, you can also appreciate the quality. The door
panels, dash, headliner, and carpeting all present nicely. And this
even has the deluxe seat trim package. There are features that make
this a comfortable classic, like the retro-style AM/FM/cassette
stereo and cold blowing air conditioning. But the pieces you're
going to love the most are the once made for the performance
experience. There's a center console with the iconic horseshoe
shifter and quad auxiliary gauge package. You get an upgraded wood
trim sports steering wheel, and beyond that is a large speedo and
Under the hood is the numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8. It's a
tidy look with plenty of stock style, but if you look closer, this
original powerhouse also was built for added performance. It
inhales deeper with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and
Edelbrock intake. That gives it extra force on the streets and a
sweet rumble from the dual exhaust. But more than just powerful,
you have the benefit of a great all-around driver. The V8 runs like
a well-respected machine. Plus, there are nice anytime features,
like the three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power
brakes, and wide Cooper Cobra GT tires.
This is the prestige of a first-generation Camaro presented with a
great sports car attitude. And you get to enjoy it all in A/C
comfort. So you're looking at a desirable full package that's ready
to roll right now.
