With aggressive LS3 power, a six-speed manual transmission,
four-wheel disc brakes, and an A/C interior, this 1968 Chevrolet
Camaro is both an SS tribute and one of the best all-around
restomods you can get your hands on right now. And as you check out
all the details, you can really tell this was a thoughtful build
coming off of long-term ownership.
This car has been with the same owner for about the last 15 years,
but it was only in the last few years that this one was fully
upgraded into the restomod you see today. And so you get a car that
was given thoughtful additions. The Fathom Blue paint is a great
color because it was only offered in the first-gen on the '68 car.
Today it is a more modern two-stage application that retains a good
look. This mix of classic style with modern additions sets the true
theme of this coupe. The front chin spoiler, blackout grille,
full-width rear spoiler, and cowl hood pay tribute to what you love
in a first-gen Camaro Super Sport. And the clean lines and bright
bumpers make for a good classic. But those 15-inch polished Torq
Thrust wheels and awesome forward-leaning stance do a great job of
announcing an upgraded performance machine.
The black interior has a clean style that's quite inviting. The
seats are another great way this one shows off how it has been
thoughtfully upgraded. The front buckets are modern Procar units
with plenty of terrific bolstering. But those houndstooth cloth
inserts are pure vintage Camaro cool. There are well-integrated
features like a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner with Bluetooth, JBL
speakers, USB plugs in the dash, and the original heater controls
now have a full Vintage Air A/C setup. And of course, as a true
restomod, it's made to be a great driver. You have a walnut
wood-rimmed steering wheel, a Flaming River tilt column, a Hurst
floor shifter, and Dakota Digital VHX gauges.
The heart of this beast is a 6.2-liter fuel-injected LS3 V8. Oh
yes, this is a more modern motor borrowed from a 2013 Camaro SS and
installed in 2020. And since those cars were 400+ horsepower
juggernauts, it's a terrific upgrade in this classic that still
keeps with the Camaro lineage. There are even the right supporting
components, like a large Griffin aluminum radiator, dual electric
fans, and an Optima red top battery mounted in the trunk for better
weight distribution. You get full control over this big power
upgrade thanks to the Tremec 6060 six-speed manual transmission.
This feeds a stout Ford 9-inch limited-slip rear with 4.11 gears
for powerful take-offs. This was built to be both fun and strong,
and so you now have subframe connectors and rear mono leaf springs
with HD shackles. Add in power steering, wide BF Goodrich T/As, and
four-wheel power disc brakes, and this is the powerful and
confident first-gen Camaro you've always wanted.
The sale comes complete with a binder full of build receipts so you
can see the big investments it takes to get a restomod like this.
This is an upgraded classic that knows how to deliver big power and
added comfort while still respecting its history. So don't miss
out, call today!
