Vehicle Description

First generation Camaros remain perennial favorites and this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Tribute has a ton going for it that will undoubtedly make it an absolute hit at the next cruise night. It has a sweet-running 327 up front with an easy-to-drive automatic behind it, an awesome muscle-car stance, and a fantastic color combination that is sure to attract a ton of attention.

There's almost no way to make a 1968 Camaro look bad, but dressed in a very shiny coat of Midnight Blue Metallic with painted-on white SS stripes, this one takes on an entirely different attitude. In a sea of Hugger Orange and Torch Red cars, this one will definitely stand out, and the workmanship is definitely good enough to stand up to fairly intense scrutiny. It's appears to be a relatively recent paint job, so there's a durable shine that'll look great for years to come simply by washing and waxing it on weekends and they obviously invested the time needed to make this blue car look its best. Sure, it's no trailer queen that's going to be win you a 'Best in Show' trophy every time out, but it's got plenty of curb appeal with a driver-quality street presence that vastly outweighs the minor imperfections it does have. A blacked-out SS grille and cowl hood up front always look cool without disrupting the smooth, low-key look of this F-body, and there's a ducktail spoiler out back as well, so the rear design is just as slick as the front. Bright chrome bumpers glitter against the dark blue finish and correct emblems have been installed as needed to give it an authentic SS look.

The black bucket seat interior looks to be a combination of preserved and restored components, and uses factory-correct seat covers, fresh door panels, and plush black carpets with the proper weave and thick pile to give it a very OEM look. The driver's seat shows some signs of use (no rips or tears, just signs of use), but there's nothing here that will stop you from getting in and enjoying the car right away. The TH350 3-speed automatic transmission is managed by the ultra-cool horseshoe shifter that's housed in the middle console, a leather-rimmed billet steering wheel looks very sporty inside, and the stock gauges ahead of it appear to be in very good original condition inside the stock dash. There's also thinly veiled woodgrain applique trim on the dash and center console, and that contrast really does a great job warming things up in the cabin. An updated Phase Linear AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the center of the dash but doesn't look too out of place in the stock slot, and while that's about it for amenities, the cabin is still a very pleasant place in which to spend time. And quite frankly, if you're buying a vintage muscle car in hopes of modern car amenities, you might be missing the whole point of the hobby. The rear seat look almost completely unused, while out back the trunk is spacious enough to account for most travel plans and shows off just how solid this Camaro's sheetmetal really is.

The 327 cubic inch V8 under the hood is not original, although the "ME" suffix code designates it as a 1968 327 V8 for use in a Camaro with an automatic transmission. Nicely detailed in vivid Chevy Orange paint with chrome tinwork, the period-correct motor doesn't break any new ground but definitely looks like someone always cared for this muscle car. It's plenty potent, and with an upgraded Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake manifold, and a dual exhaust system, it's a strong runner even without the extra cubes so many restored 1st generation Camaros carry these days. A newer power brake booster goes with the front disc brakes that give this Camaro the stopping power to match its go power, and power steering helps the drive quality tremendously. The smooth-shifting TH350 automatic transmission feeds a 10-bolt rear end, making for a sturdy powertrain combination and sturdy monoleaf springs and stock shocks help with ride quality and handling at the same time. Chrome Cragar S/S wheels look right on any early Camaro and carry staggered 215/65/15 front and 275/60/15 rear BFGoodrich white-letter rubber that tucks under the fenders just right.

Cars like this Camaro make up the backbone of the hobby, totally usable for show or go and never out of place when car guys are around. Call today!
