1968 Chevrolet Camaro
This model may not have been the first muscle car introduced, but cars like this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro certainly changed the dynamic of competition among manufacturers when they joined the action. Looking sharp, running strong and sounding awesome, this vintage Chevy will be a great score for the enthusiast looking to get behind the wheel of true classic that's ready to provide miles and miles of exhilarating driving. It didn't take Chevy much time to get their prized project into top form. The first generation of Camaros debuted just a year before this '68 rolled out, and you can see just how this take on the long hood/ short deck lid/ broad track muscle car formula captured the immediate interest of the car buying public. Clad in a magnetic bright red shade with broad black painted stripes running the length of its hood, it's sure to draw attention. The hideaway Rally Sport headlights were a key design element that bore no resemblance at all to what the competition was offering and the deep black background into which they're recessed looks great against the rest of the exterior, as does the cowl hood. The badging on all four sides of this '68 is in good form, the bumpers fore and aft sit level and the cabin is surrounded by clear glass, all of which add to the car's already considerable curb appeal. Climb inside and you'll be surrounded by an interior that's been brought into great shape while retaining its original look. Both the low backed front buckets and the rear bench seat don't look like they've seen much action, though some dye work on all four seatbelts will take things to an even higher level. The door panels also look very sharp and cling firmly to their steel frames, and the center console - which features woodgrain accents and a signature group of inclined rectangular gauges up front - presents very well. The dash area has received a thorough refurbishing, or possibly a replacement altogether, and features a shiny, straight and uncracked pad across the top, with very clear gauges in its cluster and every control knob sitting securely in place. Take a look above and you'll see a headliner that's in the very same condition. The trunk area is lined with a fresh gasket to keep the elements out. Just underneath the hood, a 350 cubic inch V8 sits in one seriously tidy engine bay, surrounded by nicely routed wiring, fresh hoses and components that look like they've been scrubbed clean. The powerplant carries a 4-barrel carb and an Edelbrock High Rise manifold for some added power, as well as a Chevy-badged chrome air cleaner and chrome valve covers to enhance its looks. The engine is in very good form, pulling with conviction and sending out a great exhaust note while doing so, and pairs with a 4-speed manual transmission to give you full control over this muscle car classic. While its manually-equipped counterparts often offer a compromised driving experience with their notchy, inconsistent clutches, there's no such issue here - the clutch action on this Camaro is smooth and precise. An aluminum radiator sits up front to keep temperatures in check, bracketed by a pair of export braces in the front corners of the engine compartment to add a little more rigidity to the front end. Smooth power steering makes navigation easy, while power brakes at all four corners - with disc brakes up front - provide dependable stops as this Chevy classic turns heads on its 17" American Racing wheels outfitted with Sumitomo tires.
