For Sale: 1968 Chevrolet Camaro in Volo, Illinois

Vehicle Description

This Camaro checks all the boxes! If you had a time machine, could you order a new one any better than this? The colors and options are amazing. Anytime you find a 4 speed with air is rare, especially a big block convertible!

EXTERIOR: The body is absolutely straight and fits really well. No blisters, or dents. According to the fender tag is was repainted it's original Matador red color. It's smooth and glossy. There are a few minor imperfections if you look for them. The SS stripe was painted on correctly. The Rally Sport includes hideaway lights, trim on top of doors and relocated reverse lights. Up front it has a spoiler and optional bumper guards. The chrome looks new- bumpers, ice cube trays, emblems, mirrors, door handles. In back it has the blacked out SS tail panel, new tail lights, bumper, bumper guards and gas cap. New 14 inch rally wheels and trim. New BF Goodrich tires. The white convertible top is in excellent shape. The jambs are clean, weather strips were replaced. The windshield looks new.

INTERIOR: Beautiful pearl white deluxe interior, it is correct according to the trim tag. It looks like it's all been replaced- the seat upholstery, molded door panels, the rear side panels. Nice carpet on the floor, completeset of original gauges. Factory center console is excellent, it has the factory gauge package with a Hurst shifter sticking out of it. In front of me is a factory tachometer, factory Am-Fm radio and a deluxe wheel on a tilt column. It's in great shape- new dash pad, knobs, lenses, vents, heater control panel are in excellent shape.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: Correct dated and coded 396 with optional 350 horsepower. It has 3 very desirable factory options- air conditioning, power steering and power brakes. The motor is clean and stock. It has reproduction chrome valve covers and air cleaner. Things look clean, proper and orderly.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: The trunk compartment is complete. It has a Wide Oval redline tire on a rally wheel for a spare. The jack is chrome plated. The trunk mat, decals, weatherstrip and well liner were replaced. The metal is clean and was spatter painted. It has the "shaker cans" that the convertibles come with.

UNDERSIDE: Very respectable underneath. All solid metal, a couple of floor pan sections were welded in. The front end was rebuilt- springs, shocks, bushings, ball joints were replaced. The fuel tank, straps and sending unit were replaced. It has a dual exhaust with the proper transverse muffler. Brakes were redone, it has disc in front. E-brake cables are hooked up. Looking up at the motor it's clean Chevy orange, starter looks fresh. It has a Muncie 4-speed trans and a correct 12-bolt rear end in back with 3.07 gears.

The ultimate 68 Camaro? In a lot of ways I think it is. Options and colors are very desirable! I drove it home and it ran and drove great. I called the guy I bought it from and thanked him as I was driving.

I, Jay Grams, take pride in personally writing the descriptions for virtually every car for about the last 30 years now. A significant amount of effort goes into fact checking. What I am offering is my professional impression of the vehicle.
