1968 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
1968 Chevrolet Camaro Coupe
During the design and initial construction of the Camaro, the car had the name "Panther." The 1965 concept bore the Panther emblem, and it retained the name until just a few weeks before the car debuted. However, Chevy always intended to give its Mustang competitor a "C" name to conform to its Corvette, Chevelle, and Corvair models.
A proclaimed California car now has come from the left coast to the east where it was magically turned into a resto-mod. With a big 6.0 liter LS2 engine, some snappy Dakota Digital gauges and polished 17 inch American Racing wheels, just turn the key and get in to enjoy it! It's all completed.
A very nicely done respray on this car is seen in LeMans Blue. A duo of wide white stripes make their way from the hidden headlight grille to the front glass, then continue on the trunk deck and small spoiler. Correct and clean badging is seen on the front fenders and quarters and SS on the rear gas on back, a small but effective rear spoiler is attached in matching blue. A black chin spoiler is in front just below the grille and shiny front bumper. Body matching drip moldings, shiny window surrounds, handles, mirrors, and brite work is all in very good condition with nary a sign of any pitting or fading. Gaps are well minded, and paint is overall excellent. 17-inch polished American Racing Torque Thrust wheels are on all 4 corners and in front wrapped in 245/40ZR17's and on back slightly bigger 275/40ZR17's. Im diggin' that blue.
The interior door panels present original and are very clean and straight black vinyl. Front low back buckets and a rear bench showing off with tuck and roll inserts and smooth bolsters sit above black carpet, and all is clean in here. The original dash shows nicely and retains its rake as it moves downward from the dash top. Dakota digital red glowing instruments are now settled into the deep round insert gauges. Chromed eyeball vents are now in to direct that cool Vintage air towards you. A rally steering wheel turns easily as it is power assisted. In dash center wood appliqué framed by chromed trimming has a horizontal A/C vent, temp sliders and a vintage AM/FM radio. This intersects with the center console that races through the buckets, sports more wood appliqué the shifter and 4 digital red backlit gauges that present themselves to the driver nicely. A short stalk black ball topped shifter is just behind these gauges and well within reach of the pilot. The top is nice and tight. Mmmmm mmmm good!
Crammed in under the hood is an engineering marvel in the form of a 6.0 liter LS2 engine. It is fed by Fi Tech EFI. Headers are on for the exhale and on back a T56 6-speed manual transmission. On back for the axle, which is courtesy a 73-74 Nova and is in 10-bolt 2.73 posi trac form. All very nicely worked to near perfection. Yowza!
Like new exhaust from MagnaFlow with 3-inch tubing takes the exhale handoff from the headers and works them out the back of the car. All panels and steel is structurally sound with little to no surface rust throughout. Stock suspension, a new fuel cell, and power disc brakes for the front, and power drums for the rear can be seen. Noice…
This resto-mod fired right up and off to the test track where it exhibited neck snapping acceleration, bias free panic stopping, and very nice handling. All inside glowed a beautiful red, and all outside gleamed a beautiful blue.
A really nice example of the 68 Camaro coupe, runs great, starts quickly, and can smoke the tires or sit there and win trophies. It doesn't get any better than this “Go-tie” resto-mod Chevrolet pony car with a high horse engine.
