1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS
He is a link to the restoration page for the last 5 years I have been working on the car. This allows you to see exactly what has been done and what you are getting. The car also has the rare rear fold down seat! I know I am putting a lot on here to read but trust me it's worth the time to read all of it as I answer a lot of potential questions.
pages 2-8 are the Camaro http://www.hotrodders.com/forum/journal.php?action=view&journalid=18535&page=8&perpage=5&reverse=0
How do I know thatI have a true SS?
I have the original waybill for delivery with the VIN on the document from 1967
Ihave the original protect-o-plate on the warranty booklet with RPO L48 combo that came only on SB SS
All information regarding build dates, codes and timeframes match perfectly on the car.
So with that said here is what I have so far:
Engine: 350/295 SS RPO L48
Protect-o-plate Location E Value=V1016MS-Flint Motor Oct 16 350/295 L48 SS Small Block MT
Block Casting Number 3914678 Cast date Stamp J47= Sept 4th 1967- This would be correct for the engine casting date to actual build date of Oct.
The Vin has been decked on the block pad (yeah, I know bummer) but all date codes, casting numbers are correct on the block and heads relating to the information on the protect-o-plate. Given how accurate the casting numbers, stamped manufacturer build dates and codes are dead on to the vehicle build/manufacturing date and match the stamped build and VIN information on the Transmission I think it would be safe to say this is the original engine that came with the car but I know there will be arguments there.
Protect-o-plate Location H Value=P8R13
Muncie 4 speed P=Muncie Plant-8 is 1968-R13 is Oct-13
Transmission is stamped with P8r13 and the actual VIN of the car. The 350/M21 Combo was SS only.
Protect-o-plate Location F Value=BS0930G= 12 Bolt 331 Posi. Casting matches but I have to remove the powder coat on axel tube for other info.
Everything else is also DEAD ON from leaf springs to the rear brake line regulator valve.
I also have all the original buyer information and documentation that dates all the way back to 1967. From what I can tell the car sat since 1982 and I have most of the paperwork thru the 70's including the recall letter for the motor mount issue by GM and sent out in 1972. The guy who owned this car kept EVERYTHING including the envelope from GM with the 6 cent Eisenhower stamp on it. So this is a partial numbers matching date code correct TRUE SS convertible... So in my humble opinion I think she is worth all the effort I put into her.

What it needs: All the paint has been stripped off the car to bare metal. The black you see is just rattle can primer. The color code of the car is Matador Red and I would keep it that color. I have not had a chance to do the drivers side rear quarter panel wheel well like I did on the passengers side. That is the only rust on the car as you can see from the project journal I have done everything else. As you can see I have put a lot of time and money into this car. I have a 1966 Corvette now and I really can't afford both cars anymore so I am keeping the Corvette and it KILLS ME to sell my Camaro as I love her very much but you know how it is. The car is garaged in the Los Angeles area (San Fernando Valley) and can be viewed by appointment only. She runs and sounds excellent! You could drive this car from Los Angeles to New York if you wanted to.I have spent a crazy amount of money on this car but I have no expectation of making it back as I do my builds for pleasure and to help merelax from my job. I have been building cars for about 35 years and still enjoy it to this day.
I would love for her to go to a good home..On Nov-05-16 at 19:19:06 PDT, seller added the following information:
The car does have power steering and power disk brakes.
