1968 Chevrolet Camaro
With its huge V8, huge rear wheel, and huge intimidation factor, you'd expect this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro to be a wild and raucous custom build. But you might feel differently when sitting comfortably in the houndstooth interior with the cold A/C blowing. Yes, this is the best of everything!
This is the mean machine that instantly grabs all your attention... and it's just the setup for the total package. You can tell there was a ton invested to get this black as smooth as glass. It has all the right modern gloss and shine to highlight all those great first-gen F-body curves. It has all the right aggressive touches for the classic SS appearance, including the front air dam, cowl induction hood, and full-width ducktail spoiler. But there's also a lot more that's catching your eye. There was a recent investment in the brightwork so it looks fantastic on everything from the mirror-like chrome bumpers, to the delicate trim that seems to be in all the right places. Plus, there's a great set of 15-inch shining Cragar SS wheels... and have you checked out how massive the rear ones are yet?
Step inside, and this Camaro provides one of the coolest blends of premium and performance around. Houndstooth bucket seats are an icon of this first-gen Camaros, and so is the center console with wood paneling. The AM/FM/cassette stereo and ice-cold R134a air conditioning make this a fine place to spend some time. But from the moment you slip behind the Grant GT sports steering wheel, you instantly know this classic's real focus is on speed. After all, the huge AutoMeter tach with shift light, upgraded quad auxiliary gauge package, and Hurst shifter are there for more than just Sunday driving. And there's enough roll cage bracing behind the front seats to be ready for the dragstrip.
The big 468 cubic-inch V8 is something you'll love to show off, because it's is a well-coordinated package that showcases some serious performance. Dark black fender walls help draw attention to all the polished elements like the Moroso valve covers, bracer bars, and master cylinder. And all those red elements make this big block look like it's out for blood. But more than look great, this motor was built for muscle. It's running a 10.75:1 compression ratio and has a full hydraulic cam, lifter, and rockers package. There are also go-fast goodies like a massive Holley 850 CFM four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock hi-rise aluminum intake, MSD ignition, and Hooker long tube headers that add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the dual exhaust. This is putting down some serious power, and you have full control over it thanks to the four-speed manual transmission that's backed by a stout Hayes clutch. And that feeds the strong Dana 60 rear end. Plus, the coilover rear end, trunk-mounted fuel cell, and massive 20x18 rear tires are there to make sure this one is always first off the line. But as mean as this one is, it also has great driving features like power steering and front disc brakes. There's even a Griffin four-core aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans to keep it all cool no matter if you're waiting at the racetrack or in traffic with the A/C pumping.
Intimidating, thoughtful, and absolutely powerful this is the ultimate street and strip Camaro. So if you're ready to be memorable, this one is ready for you. Call today!!!
