1968 Chevy Camaro RS/SS For Sale
When you can find a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS/SS that's so original, that even the big block is numbers-matching, then you know you've found muscle car royalty. So you can look through all the details of one of the best coupes around, but realize that if you admire it too long, it might be gone.
This Camaro was the king of the streets when it left the factory, and not much has changed in nearly half a century. A hallmark of the RS package is the blacked-out grille that hides the headlights behind vacuum activated doors. Plus, more of this playfully sinister darkness is seen in the blacked-out rear panel. These dark elements are balanced out nicely by the factory-correct shade of Le Mans Blue that has an amazing gloss and shine. And more of this bright performance is seen on the attractive SS 'hockey stick' Ivory triple stripe, which also coordinates so nicely with the roof color. These bright hues and multi-panel stripes are not only cool, but they also help prove just how straight the body is on this RS/SS. And since this is a highly-original high-performance Chevy, you also get all the best hallmark items like the correct hood vents, deep chin spoiler, and D80 full-width rear spoiler. Of course, no bow-tie icon would be complete without a shining set of Rally wheels.
Inside, one of the first things you'll notice is that every bit of factory-correct blue vinyl is in near pristine condition. The premium bucket seats have terrific stitching and the correct trim still attached. But these kinds of details are often missed because everyone's attention always gravitates to the center console with the original horseshoe shifter. For the driver, this is a cool piece to hold even if you're not trying to bang your own way through the three-speed automatic. Plus, the upgraded steering wheel is just begging for you to grip it (the original unit comes with the sale, too.) 1968 was the first year for the Astro Ventilation system. It not only eliminated the need for vent windows, but also it makes it easier for them to integrate the ice-cold modern R134a air conditioning. This means you can roll everything down for that cool pillarless look that will make you never want to put the windows up again. And if you thought that made this a great cruiser, then you'll love the cup neatly integrated cup holders. So while this classic coupe still has its optional AM/FM radio, we know you'll be too occupied with the wind in your hair and listening to a very special soundtrack coming from the dual exhaust.
Open the hood and you'll see wedged in the engine bay the largest engine Chevy would fit into these Camaros. And you'll love telling everyone that this is the original 396 cubic-inch V8 that GM installed nearly a half-century ago! And since the whole car has averaged less than 1,400 miles annually so far, you know this big block has been treated with respect all its life. And more than just its history, this one looks great with the correct orange paint, shiny valve covers, and matching air topper that announces its power superiority. Plus, underneath it is the proper Rochester four-barrel carburetor. All of this power is managed by a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission before being sent to the SS-correct 12-bolt rear end. While this mighty beast knows how to roar, it also has been built to cruise. That's why you have power steering, front disc brakes, and BF Goodrich Silvertown tires with the iconic redline appearance.
Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, this A/C car is literally a cool classic with tons of power and all the right original pieces. Rarely do you get an opportunity at such a desirable low-mileage muscle icon. So don't miss out, call today!
