1968 Chevrolet Camaro Hardtop In 1966 Mustangs were flying out of Ford showrooms, and Chevrolet needed an answer. After many secret meetings, and covert internal press events, engineers unveiled the official name for what had been known up to this point as XP-836. Camaro was the chosen namesake, and immediately the question became but what does it mean?. This question has no official linguistic answer, but as Chevrolet marketing people would answer It\'s an animal that eats Mustangs! For consignment, a nice slightly modified Chevrolet Camaro from its second year of offering to the public. A former Texas car with a 350ci V8, 4-speed manual transmission, new flooring and body panels, some nice exterior paint, and a clean undercarriage and ladies and gentlemen we have a great example, slightly custom. Exterior Leading the way is the RS trim hidden headlight egg crate grille with a reverse scooped hood just above and a chin spoiler below. A mustache thin body shiny chrome bumper leads the way to a well applied Bolero Red background that provides the foundation for paint on this rust-free car. We do note some chips and touch ups, along with evidence of body filler, but this is mostly down low on the rockers, doors and lower front quarters. Wheel well edge trimmings provide a frame for the deep dish 15-inch rally wheels on all 4 corners and Rally Sport badging . Well preserved chrome is on all the trimmings which include window surrounds, door edges, mirrors, and wipers. On the back we see a small spoiler and rectangular tail lights for this first gen iteration. A side view gives you a great view of the awesome stance of this car with its larger rear tires and slightly jacked up suspension with polished 5 spoke 17-inch REV wheels providing extra bling. Truly a wild pony car ready to gobble up Mustangs at any moment. Interior Black bucket front seats covered in vinyl and a rear bench seat are in used but good condition with only slight wrinkling, mainly reserved for the driver\'s lower cushion. Slightly faded black carpeting covers all floor surfaces and above is a black headliner presenting with a few wrinkles toward the back. A thick rimmed 3 spoke steering wheel frames 2 deep round gauges clusters on the angled in dash front. There are no cracks to note in the black padded dash topper and in the dash center is a textured black panel which houses the climate control sliders and radio delete. This panel is framed by smooth chrome trimming and has the obligatory ashtray hanging from the bottom. The door panels, with their padded black vinyl covering show as nearly new with bright chrome inlays and a clean black vinyl armrest. Chrome handles litter the black and the central tuck and roll padding adds a nice touch. Sitting in the middle of the hump is a leather wrapped shifter with a chrome topper ball. Drivetrain Under the hood is a gleaming consigner stated 350ci This mill has a Weiand aluminum intake and a single 4-barrel carburetor feeding it. A 4-speed Saginaw manual transmission is on with a new clutch and flywheel. Waaay back is a 10-bolt rear axle. With its orange painted block, silver snake-like headers, and chrome bolt ons, this engine is another one of the many stars of the show on this Camaro. Undercarriage All very clean with no road dirt and a light sprinkling of surface rust on the usual suspects, everything appears as it has been well taken care of and finished in chassis black including the new flooring. Independent with new spindles, springs, and lower ball joints for the front and new leaf springs for the rear, and we see front power disc brakes with new pads as well as power rear drums and a new master cylinder. Flowmaster provides the exhaust and mufflers which feed from silver finished snake like headers. Our consignor notes that a new fuel tank, sender and lines have recently been installed along with a new chrome power steering pump, new steering coupler, and new mo
