1968 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible
Imagine opening the door to your garage and revealing one of the true classics of the late 1960's, but in full resto-mod dress. Imagine that classic to be a Chevrolet Camaro, and imagine it was its best year throughout the history of the car, widely thought to be 1968. Last, imagine all the work has been done, and all you have to do is get in and turn the key!
Let your imagination run wild with one of the nicest consignments Classic Auto Mall has seen in its short, but storied history. This 1968 Camaro RS/LS was built for a very finicky customer by a company called D&S Fabricators from Kenton, Delaware. Nothing but the best for this build, and as consigner states was built to drive and enjoy. Why don't you just imagine yourself behind the wheel?
Wrapped in nothing but awesomeness with the perfect paint job making use of 2 tone 2012 Corvette Cyber Gray Metallic. A very subtle stripe, just like the original model bands the front of the car. And while we're there, gaze at the custom billet grille, with matching hidden headlights. The quality of this build can be seen right here, as there is literally perfect alignment with the headlight covers, and the grille. Try that with an original 68! Bringing up the rear are Fesler sequential taillights, and Billet Specialty rims. A new convertible tops this car off. Oh, and did I mention all stainless nuts and bolts were used in this build.
If I said the word Custom, it would perfectly describe the interior, and it's all leather. Black leather to be exact with two buckets draped with suede in the center framed by leather bolsters, that flank a custom center console, also in black. A stainless shifter, and 2 stainless lined cup holders, along with all the power window controls are within easy reach of the pilot seat. Door panels match this carry over motif, and show electric activated locks, and custom shaped handles. Shiny Autometer gauges are fronted by a rally style adjustable height steering wheel.
As they say the sweetest meat is closest to the bone, and a pop of the hood reveals an LS3 Stroked 427ci V8 sitting in a reworked engine compartment painted satin to contrast the showroom shiny mill. A Tremec 6-speed manual transmission is bolted to the back, and underside reveals a Moser 9” differential. Speaking of the underside, a picture of this should be in the dictionary with the word pristine. A few highlights include 4-link suspension, a Heidt's front clip, tubular A arms, coil over shocks, A McLeod hydraulic clutch, 4-wheel disc brakes from Wilwood, and strapped on for kicks, Vintage Air.
Now is your chance to drop in and take this awesome resto-mod for a spin. Truly a meticulous build, no stone unturned, frame off restoration/modification. Virtually a showroom 1968 that will be taking prisoners, and turning heads, and inspiring imaginations, as well as smoking much newer models, which everyone else has.
