---- Brief History of the 1968 Chevy Caprice ----
The 1968 Caprice received a minor facelift that included a new grille with tailights set into the bumper and optional hidden headlamps. Caprice coupes now came standard with the new Astro Ventilation system, which included extra vents in the dash, nd the removal of vent (wing) windows. Side marker lamps became standard on all U.S. cars and the Caprice carried over the optional white corner marker lamps at the forward edge of the fenders in addition to the amber parking lights which were illuminated with the headlights. All 1968 Chevrolets got front side marker lights on the fender; cars with an optional engine were identified with its cubic inch displacement listed on half the bezel; the light itself occupied the other half. The fiber optics monitoring system was offered again as an option. Chevrolet made the Caprice Coupe's formal roofline available in the Impala series. The Impala Custom Coupe became the best-selling model in the line. The L72 427cuin (7.0L) 425hp (320kW) Turbo Jet was made optional. A new 307cuin (5.0L) Turbo Fire V8 rated at 200hp (150kW) replaced the 195hp (145kW) 283cuin (4.6L) small block as the standard engine. Inside, he instrument panel was revised with a return to the horizontal sweep speedometer and a revised three-spoke steering wheel. An optional instrument cluster had a narrow speedometer within its opening and flanking it with engine-turned instruments in the place of warning lights. The fuel gauge, laced next to the speedometer within its own pod in the base models, as moved to its new place next to the speedometer. A tachometer took the place of the fuel gauge in the large opening left by the fuel gauge
