For Sale: 1968 Chevrolet Camaro in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 Tribute is bright and mean, just like you want a big block classic to be. But there are also plenty of extra details - like an overdrive transmission - that make this a solid all-around cruiser.

Matador red is an iconic color for a first-gen Camaro. This was upgraded later in life with a modern clearcoat application. Today, that means a good gloss with the right look for a car that wants to be driven. And the added white stinger stripe gives this the all-American kind of appeal like a Coca-Cola bottle. It's a well-presented total package with clean lines, bright chrome, clean glass, pliable weather-stripping, and doors that close solid. More than just getting the fundamentals right, you'll also appreciate the Super Sport details. It includes the upgraded blackout grille, front spoiler, velocity stack hood trim, and rear spoiler. Plus, those Cragar SS wheels add to both the shine and the aggression of this icon.

The black interior looks good with the upholstery, dash pad, door panels, and carpeting all with a deep dark look of proper investment over the years. There are even nice details, like the working dome light and key buzzer. It's a great vintage first impression, but when you get into the driver's seat, you can see this was upgraded just for you. That means a performance-oriented setup with nice additions like a wood-rimmed sports steering wheel, AutoMeter secondary gauges on the center console, a horseshoe shifter, and a tach prominently mounted on the steering column.

The engine bay is filled with big block power. So we love how the dark inner walls really funnel your attention to this tidy and bright V8 heart and the flame-etched valve covers on top. It has the right upgrades for power, like a four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Performer aluminum intake, and Dougs headers that enhance the power as they feed the rumbling dual exhaust. This also has good supporting components like an aluminum radiator and an Optima red top battery. So a solid package like this was built for enjoying trips near or far, and so you have a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission with highway-ready overdrive. Power steering, power brakes, and wide BF Goodrich T/As make for a solid all-around driving setup.

This coupe has bold looks, big power, and the kind of style that loves to hit the road. It makes for the kind of icon that you can enjoy to the fullest. Call today!!!
