1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Tribute
This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Tribute will afford some lucky classic car enthusiast the rare opportunity to get behind the wheel of a sharp looking, strong running first generation specimen of one of the most pivotal models in modern automotive history at a great price. Even better, this Camaro's road readiness offers plenty of fun-filled miles in its already attention getting condition. It's easy to forget that the Camaro was a fairly late entrant into the muscle car wars that had taken center stage among performance-minded car buyers by the mid-'60s, but one quick glance at this '68's first generation form provides plenty of evidence that Chevy got things right the first time around. That winning "long hood, short deck lid" plays out to great effect here and the black paint, ornamented by broad white painted stripes down the cowl hood and deck lid, provides a killer look. There's no doubt that this vintage Chevy will turn plenty of heads in its present condition, but a little wet sanding would definitely take things up a notch. All its badging, including the Z/28 emblems positioned on the front bumpers as a nod to this car's upper crust Chevy inspiration, are securely in place and the cabin is surrounded by clear glass that features rubber seals in good condition. The interior was nicely restored a while back, and definitely has a lot to offer. The black vinyl covers on both the front buckets and rear bench seat show very little wear, with plenty of padding left to indicate they haven't seen a lot of use over the years. Resting between the buckets, the center console is in very clean condition, featuring fresh woodgrain inserts that surround its white balled Hurst manual shifter as well as the four AutoMeter gauges positioned just a little farther forward that join the new-looking counterparts residing in the instrument cluster behind a woodgrain steering wheel. A supple-looking, crack-free dash pad - always a welcome sight with UV sensitive black upholstery - runs the width of the cabin just above. The trunk area looks to be in good order, with clean vinyl lining its floor and a fresh rubber gasket sitting just below its deck lid to keep the elements from intruding. Anxious to get out on the road and enjoy yourself? You'll have no problems here. The 350 cubic inch V8 under the hood starts very easily and runs smooth, sounding out a strong, even exhaust note in the process. It sits in an orderly engine compartment, surrounded by fresh hoses and orderly wiring wearing a chrome Edelbrock air cleaner over its matching 4-barrel carb and intake manifold, as well as a pair of chrome valve covers on its sides. The powerplant teams with a 4-speed manual transmission that's shifting with precision to provide just the "hands on" vintage driving experience a classic like this deserves while a look below will show a solid undercarriage. Smooth power steering makes this Camaro an easy navigator, while power front disc brakes provide dependable, fade resistant stops as this coveted Chevy cruises on a set of 15" stock wheels wrapped with all season radials. Sound, strong running first generation Camaros aren't very easy to come by, so this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 Tribute is a welcome find. Call today!
