1968 Chevrolet Camaro

There's no more handsome color on an early Camaro than basic black, and this cool 1968 convertible looks exactly right sporting a contrasting red nose stripe. Recently refinished with gorgeous paint, a nicely detailed stroker motor under the hood, and a host of upgrades, it's an awesome machine that delivers the performance its looks seem to promise.Although the '69 Camaro remains the most popular Chevy of all time, there are a large number of folks who think the simple lines of the earlier cars were exactly right. Compact, but muscular, the first Camaro was a simple design that allowed small details to have a big impact. Super straight sheetmetal certainly helps, and the finish quality on this car is extremely good, which, as you know, is important whenever you're using black paint. There's a bit of metallic in the finish, so it really sparkles out in the sun, but doesn't lose its sinister demeanor. Add in a cowl induction hood and the ducktail spoiler and you have an aggressive-looking ragtop that doesn't lose its F-body identity in the conversion. Expertly applied stripes follow the factory pattern, the blacked-out SS grille up front finishes out the aggressive package without being overbearing, and the folding RS headlights always look trick. Excellent chrome bumpers and bright stainless on things like the windshield surround add a bit of jewelry.Inside, black buckets wear reproduction seat covers that follow the original pattern, with a matching seat cover on the rear bench. Many of the soft parts were replaced during the restoration, including those seat covers, the carpets, the door panels, and even the dash pad appears to be a newer piece. A 3-spoke steering wheel is a familiar sight that still looks great decades later, and the original gauges visible through the spokes. An aftermarket A/C system fits neatly into the original slot and provides powerful cooling thanks to modern hardware working behind the scenes. There's also a newer stereo head unit that's installed but not yet hooked up, so you can either get it working or replace it with the system of your choice without a lot of work. Overhead there's a black convertible top that seals up snugly, and the trunk has been finished using correct spatter paint with just a hint of green, just as it was from the factory.Power comes from a sweet-running 383 small block V8 paired with a 4-speed manual transmission, and the engine bay is dressed for show. Chrome valve covers with a matching air cleaner offer bright Bowtie logos show quite well, and the Weiand intake manifold is topped by an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. There's a full roller valvetrain inside that only helps with the 383's propensity to rev, and the low-end torque will leave you wondering why anyone wants a heavy big block up front. Underneath, it's in good condition but not shiny and perfect, with long-tube headers feeding a mellow dual exhaust system with turn-downs just ahead of the rear axle. Subframe connectors have been added to reinforce the convertible's structure and there's a vented and cross-drilled disc brake at all four corners. In back, the stock 10-bolt rear end distributes the torque, and it rolls on handsome 18-inch wheels wearing 235/40/18 front and 245/40/18 rear performance radials.There's a lot more than the asking price wrapped up in this slick F-body ragtop, and the classic color combination will never go out of style.
