When you have a 1968 Chevrolet Camaro in a racecar color like LeMans Blue, you know you need some serious power to back it up. So this muscle machine has the perfect combo of SS styling, a street-eating 454 big block power and the control of four-on-the-floor.
If you're going to put serious muscle on the streets, it should be LeMans Blue. The factory-correct color lives up to its race-bred name thanks to an investment in modern clearcoat. The professional respray gives this a super slick gloss and shine, plus the painted white SS stripes help add to this sporty distinction. The blacked-out SS grille, front chin spoiler, cowl hood, and D80 rear spoiler are all great looking muscle car upgrades. The original optional Rally wheels were upgraded to a slightly larger 15-inch set for a Z28-spec to better fill out the wheel well. All of this makes for a Camaro that carries all of the best elements from '68.
Inside, one of the first things you'll notice is that every bit of black vinyl is in near pristine condition. The low-back bucket seats stay below the doorline to give the car a great profile. Plus, 1968 was the first year for the Astro Ventilation system for vent/heat/defrost. This not only helped get more fresh air into the car, but it also eliminated the need for vent windows, so you get a true clean-n-mean pillarless profile. But these kinds of details are often missed because everyone's attention always gravitates to the center console with the cue ball Hurst shifter. For the driver, this is a cool piece to hold even if you're not trying to shift your way to the front of the pack. And this is truly a driver's car with the three-spoke SS wheel, deep dual pod gauges, and a quad pack of SunPro auxiliary readouts. So you know this Camaro gives you the tingle of power even before you turn the key and hear the big block roar.
Open the hood for a bit of a surprise. The front fenders and even air grabber might advertise a 396 cubic-inch motor, but this one really is hiding a lot more power. Beneath all the attention-getting chrome and bright Chevy orange is the substance of a 454ci V8. Topped with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, it makes muscular rumble out of the dual exhaust. A monster motor puts down monster power, and you get control over the force and its soundtrack thanks to the four-speed manual transmission.
The point of owning a V8 first generation Camaro is to have a terrific sound, and all the power you could ever want backing it up. That's what makes this bold blue coupe with SS looks and a big block so appealing. It's turnkey ready for fun tomorrow, so you need to call today!
