Displaying its original exterior color in refreshed, top notch form, to go along with the most coveted interior configuration of its time, this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS has undergone a restoration that's brought out its best and now features a lot of new parts from front to back, making for both a super clean appearance and reassuringly solid driving experience. This outstanding vintage muscle car rolls with both its original broadcast sheet and window sticker on board to attest to its authenticity.
Equipped with all the styling cues its elevated dual status brings with it, this Z/28 Rally Sport gives off the vibe of a muscle car driven straight from the assembly line to a waiting crew of craftsmen for customization, but Chevy really did build these upper echelon Camaros with all this awesomeness on board right from the factory floor. Its ash gold exterior wears a pair of broad stripes running the length of a hood bearing a signature cowl scoop and looks clean - it was refreshed a while back and still has an excellent shine, though a comprehensive detailing at the hands of a pro will take it to an even higher level. Below the surface, a number of sheet metal panels were replaced entirely to ensure corrosion won't be an issue and all are well fitted - the body alignment is very precise. Up front, the hideaway headlights sit flush in their closed position inside the properly badged grille looming above the clean front bumper and open without incident. Both the body trim and collection of badging on display here are also on point. This is just a flat-out, razor sharp, special edition classic.
The interior has been thoroughly refreshed and features black and white houndstooth checked upholstery that's synonymous with its edition of the model and became a signature styling cue in its heyday. Everything's got a fresh look inside the doors - the surfaces on the front buckets and rear bench seat have yet to develop any marked wear, the carpet and headliner are in great shape, as are both the center console with its quartet of deluxe gauges and the door panels on both sides. Just in front of the factory steering wheel, the dash area also presents very well, with clear, functional gauges in its instrument cluster that include a Tic-Toc-Tach and a dash pad on top that shows no cracking or discoloration. You'll even find the original AM radio still on board at the center of the dash, fully operable.
Raise the scooped hood and you'll notice right away that the engine compartment has been meticulously maintained. Every surface inside has a steamed clean appearance and there's not a wire out of place. At its center is a period-correct 302 cubic inch V8, wearing a chrome air cleaner and matching valve covers. Armed with stock heads that feature high compression pistons to make the most out of its displacement, as well as a 4-barrel carb, the engine is in top form, sending a deep, resounding note out of its aftermarket exhaust as it teams with a smooth-shifting 4-speed manual transmission that provides an excellent “hands on” driving experience. Power disc brakes in both front and back bring low-effort, fade-resistant stops as this vintage muscle car turns heads on its set of 15” stock wheels. Take a glance below and you'll see an undercarriage that's solid and well-prepped for many more exhilarating miles ahead.
