Up for auction is a 1968 Camaro L30. Most people don't know what an L30 Camaro even is. I didn't know until I got this car. Here is a linkto a good site full of information about these rare Camaros. There were about 11,000 of these L30 Camaros made between 1967-1968.
This car was purchased new in late 1968. The original owners daughter purchased the car in 1974. The car was daily driven until 1993 where it was parked in the garage until got it about two years ago. This Camaro has 103k original miles and still retains 70% of it's original paint.
The body of the car is original except for the rear quarter panels and outer wheelhouses. The quarters were replaced with GM originals in the early 80's and they are still very solid. The rest of the body(except rear spoiler) is original. This Camaro will need new fenders and doors due to rust but that's about it. The trunk is solid but does have surface rust. The floors are pretty nice except for the passenger front floor has a hole in it where your feet go. The front and rear frames are in great shape.
The motor, rans and rear are all original and work very well. The motor is the original 327/275hp V8 and it runs well with no knocks or smoke. Thecarburetor is a little grumpy in the morning but once it starts up and warms up it runs very well. The transmission shifts nice and smooth and the clutch works well. Therear is the original 12 bolt rear. It feels like 3.08 gears and it is a non posi and it works as it should.
The interior is original and will need a general restoration including headliner, arpet, eat covers etc.
The car drives down the road well, drove it home about 50 miles. It will need tires, hocks, rake work etc. since it has been sitting for the last 23 years.
If you are looking for a Camaro project that is complete and has no hidden surprises this is a good start. I personally would do some maintenance on it, lean it up and drive it the way it is. I have owned this car for about two years and I realize that I will not get to it anytime soon so I will let someone else have the fun and return this rare Camaro to her former Glory. Please email or call 610-442-2503 with any questions you may have. Remember this is a NO RESERVE auction so bid to win. Thanks for looking and good luck.
