Description

1968 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe #4562

The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro is an American pony car which appeared in Chevrolet dealerships on September 29, 1966 for the 1967 model year on a brand-new rear wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as a 2-door, 2 plus 2 seater. The RS was an appearance package that included hidden headlights, revised tail lights with back-up lights under the rear bumper, RS badging, and exterior bright trim. It was available on any model.

For consignment, an actual unmodified Camaro! Seems all the models we get in here are all modified in some way. This consignment retains its factory look, original order form, repair receipts throughout the years, and did I mention that this car was purchased by our consignor when she was just 18 years old? A respray in the original color covers the restored body, the interior is mostly original, and the original 327ci V8 and 3-speed are still in place. Let's take a step back in time and have a deep glance at what was occupying the showrooms and highways of Anytown, USA circa 1968.

Exterior
Chevrolet was on their heels with the popularity of the Mustang and needed a quick and powerful home run to compete. Welcome to this consignment which is the second year version, and it shows the great lines, pony car long hood and short rear deck and has nicely preserved chrome trimmings. In the narrowed grille are a single rounded headlight on either edge, and just beside these a smaller round signal light and bezel. Front fenders seamlessly melt into doors which melt into the rear quarter panel. All gaps are well aligned, and no rust for this unmodified skate, which is bathed in factory matching Matador Red paint. The roofline has a wonderful sloping B pillar and this mixes into the trunk deck which is short but effective. Horizontal tail lights are showing near perfect with shiny bezels. There is a thin chromed bumper below framing the bottom of the car. Wheel well trimmings and a nice rocker trim stretches between these wheel wells. 14 inch wheels with stock Chevrolet hubcaps are wrapped by raised white letter BF Goodrich 215/70R14's on all 4 corners. A true unaltered breath of fresh air for this 1967 Camaro.

Interior
A swing of the doors reveals survivor original factory equipment and its all pristine. Black door panels, clean handles and cranks and near perfect armrests are all here and showing nicely. Slipping inside we can plant ourselves on the low back nicely styled bomber style buckets in front. These are wrapped in black vinyl and show with tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters on the edges. A black plastic console with an applique draped top holds a small storage compartment and the chrome arm and ball shifter as it races between the buckets. A very clean and front bucket matching rear bench stretches across the back. Let's take a moment to feast our eyes on an angled black painted dash that sports all original equipment with wood applique dressing up the center of the dash and 2 deeply inset black gauges are in this angled dash, and you cannot miss them. Neither can you miss the near perfectly preserved steering wheel. Very good padding is on top and wrapped in black vinyl. Like new black carpeting is on the floors, and above is a tight headliner also bathed in gold. Almost all original, all showroom unadulterated styling inside this cockpit.

Drivetrain
A flip of the hood and a mechanically sound although unrestored cosmetically 327ci V8 awaits our ooooohhhhhs and ahhhhhhhs. This codes to a November 30th 1967 327ci V8 2bbl carb with 210hp with a 3-speed manual transmission, V1130MA just as the should say. Power to the rear tires goes through a 10 bolt 3.08 rear axle, also correct for this car. Beautifully preserved and looking original with some paint chips off and smudging, but definitely original.

Undercarriage
As with any well kept car, this undercarriage does not disappoint. A mix of original undercoating and newer black paint cover the bottom side and we note a few areas of repairs in the flooring and trunk drop offs but all being structurally sound. Independent coil spring suspension is up front along with drum brakes, and on back is a leaf spring suspension with more drum brakes. All is looking good and tidied up underneath of this original.

Drive-Ability
A quick starter and off to the test track where it ran like a champ. A great experience and a slice of what things were like in 1968 with everything working as it should.

Preservation of the original, no ladder bar add-on, no large tire scooped out wheel wells, no frills... just pure Camaro fresh out of 1968 looks and all in excellent condition.
