The 1968 Camaro was almost visually identical to the ’67, with the exception of new front and rear side marker lights and vent-less door glass. What really made the ’68 Camaro stand out was big engines, upgraded suspension, and special equipment features.
The popularity of the Z/28 package started to climb based on its first-year racing reputation of winning 10 out of the 13 races in the Trans-Am series. Chevrolet wasn’t sure if they wanted to market the option strictly for racing or to the public, but output climbed to 7,199 cars.
The RS package included numerous cosmetic changes including a blacked-out grille with hidden headlights, revised parking and taillights, upgraded interior trim, and RS badging.
The SS package contained a modified 350 V8 with an available 396 producing 325hp, and a 375hp version, along with simulated air intakes on the hood, special bumble bee striping, and a blacked-out grille. It was possible to order a RS/SS.
The Z/28 was once again available to the public as a full-pledged racer with no A/C or an automatic transmission available. Engine, suspension, and tranny were all built up. This was the real deal.
In 1968 the Z/28 Camaro dominated all Motorsport arenas winning the SCCA Trans Am series and NHRA Super Stock World Championship title thanks to the Penske racing team (SCCA) and Jenkins Strickler racing team (NHRA).
