1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS

Some 52 years have passed since the release of the legendary 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS. Today, we unveil a meticulously restored and tastefully upgraded example that stays true to the heritage, distinctiveness, and inherent appeal of this iconic marque. This triple-black beauty has been lovingly brought back to life, boasting remarkable craftsmanship and a mere 12,000 miles on the odometer.

A Powerful Heart

Under the hood lies the star of the show, the Chevrolet Performance 350 cubic-inch V8. This powerhouse has been finely tuned, bored out .030″ to 355 cid, and resides in an immaculate engine bay. Chrome valve covers and other visually stunning enhancements can be admired, their mirror-like surfaces reflecting under the hood. The powerplant’s impressive list of upgrades includes a 4-bolt main, forged pistons, 10-1 compression, Edelbrock aluminum heads, a Dart intake manifold, Holley 750 double-pumper carburetor, and a Moroso 7-quart oil pan. Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a Muncie 4-speed manual transmission with an aluminum flywheel, a Centerforce clutch and pressure plate, a 3.73 positraction rear differential, and Moser axles. With such exceptional engine work, this car has garnered multiple awards, and rightfully so.

Impeccable Exterior

The exterior of this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS showcases a flawless black paint job, applied evenly and boasting a uniform glossy finish. The body is devoid of any dents or dings, with panel fit and alignment that is nothing short of excellent. Enhancing its visual appeal are a black vinyl top, lower-front valance, rear-deck-lid spoilers, and a cowl-induction-style hood, all in impeccable condition. The chrome trim, “SS” emblems and badging, lighting lenses, and cabin glass are all pristine. Completing the look are Rocket 17-inch mag-style, 5-spoke, gray-finish wheels, fitted with high-performance Kumho tires that are free from curb rash or any other damage.

Luxurious Interior

Stepping inside this classic beauty, you’ll find every surface immaculate and free from any signs of damage or wear. The horizontally pleated black seat upholstery is exceptionally well-maintained, as is the door trim. Protecting the black carpeting are “Heartbeat of America” Chevrolet carpet mats. The dashboard remains stock and complete, with the addition of a steering-column-mounted AutoMeter tachometer and auxiliary water-temperature and oil-pressure gauges positioned below the dash. A replacement wood-rim steering wheel with a blue Chevrolet bowtie emblem center badge takes its place, along with a factory-location replacement Chevrolet-branded radio. The 4-speed shifter is mounted on the console, which features wood-veneer trim matching that of the center stack. Notably, the door sills show no signs of wear from inattentive passengers dragging their feet upon entry.
