The paint, the five-speed, the thunderous exhaust, the fully custom A/C interior, and the performance-built fuel-injected LS3 V8 – these are the reasons why you already fell in love/lust with this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Pro Touring machine. Now check out all the details on this total custom performance build that is award-worthy from every angle.
The restoration and transformation on this Camaro happened less than 7,000 miles ago, so everything is truly as fresh as it looks in the pictures. This work of art was built professionally by Tom Argue Designs in Clearwater, FL. There's an eye for sleekness on this whole build. It starts with paying particular attention during the frame-off restoration to get the panels looking terrific. Only then was the first drop of paint laid down. This is PPG's shade of Victory Red, and the name is appropriate, because with the level of attention it was given (and the miles-deep clearcoat) might just win you awards all on its own. Plus, you'll love the detail work. Not only were the stripes applied before the clearcoat so that the sunlight rolls evenly across the whole body, but also unlike other Camaros, they have unique edges to draw extra attention to aggressive pieces like the cowl hood and full-width rear spoiler. And did you check out the silver streak within the stripes... see what we mean about the details! The wraparound chrome bumpers are mirror-like; the glass is crystal-clear; and the polished torque thrust style wheels take a classic look and give them a modern 18-inch aggressive stance. This is the kind of coupe you can instantly tell was a thoughtful build where the finer aspects were scrutinized.
Inside the black accenting takes over as the main color, and the red is now the used to draw your attention to extra flair (like the custom floor mats that have the car's Pursuit nickname stitched inside.) While this has an overall look of a classic, you can also instantly see they made investments in the best of modern upgrades. Those leather bucket seats come with the kind of body-hugging bolstering you could never get in the '60s, and yours even power adjusts. The sports steering wheel is on an Ididit tilt column, and beyond that, the upgraded Dakota Digital gauge package glows red to fit with this car's theme. And that Hurst Blackjack shifter is just calling out for your right hand. But more than just a performance build, take some time to notice the extra comfort in this custom, too. You have an armrest center console that has everything from cup holders to your power window controls. Plus, there's features you don't expect in classic cars, like cruise control and ice-cold R134a air conditioning. And we know you're going to love the modern Pioneer Mixtrax touchscreen head unit. It's your gateway to a full modern AM/FM/XM stereo, Bluetooth, and backup camera.
From the moment the hood is opened, you know you're looking at a far more modern powerplant than this Camaro ever had before. They took the time to install it cleanly with a tidy look and color-matched features. We're especially fond of how the valve covers fully coordinate with the exterior, including the custom stripe colors. This is a 6.2-liter LS3 fuel-injected V8, and it's rated at 525 horsepower right out of the box. This has everything you want, including a large aluminum radiator, serpentine belts, and headers feeding the 3-inch X-pipe dual exhaust. This high-performance V8 and its thunderous soundtrack is firmly in your command thanks to the Tremec TKO 600 five-speed manual transmission. In fact, control is a central theme to this build. That's why as you look at the clean undercarriage photos, you'll also see all the right frame and suspension upgrades. This includes Global West tubular A-arms up front, subframe connectors, CalTracs traction bars in the rear, Hotchkis springs/shocks, and CPP sway bars front & rear. There's even power steering, modern ZR-rated tires, and Wilwood drilled & slotted four-wheel disc brakes.
The sale comes with the owner's manual and a mountain of receipts documenting the huge investment of over $115,000 in this awesome build. But really, the shine of the paint and the growl of the V8 already tell you this is the best of everything. So if you want to be award-worthy from the moment you leave the showroom, call today!
