This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro convertible is said to have undergone a three-year refurbishment that was completed under previous ownership in 2015, with work including repainting the car in black with red stripes, reupholstering the interior in red, and installing a replacement black soft top. The car was acquired in 2015 by the seller, who had the 327ci V8 overhauled in 2016. The engine is paired with a four-speed manual transmission, and additional equipment includes an electric choke, aftermarket gauges, Ridler staggered-diameter wheels, hideaway headlights, front disc brakes, and a rear spoiler. This first-generation Camaro convertible is offered with partial service records and a clean Washington State title in the seller’s name.
The body was refinished in black with red stripes under previous ownership, and a black soft top with a glass rear window was installed. Additional features include a cowl-induction hood, chrome-finished bumpers, polished wheel arch trim, RS badging, and a rear spoiler. Close-up photos showing the condition of the body panels and paintwork are presented in the gallery below.
Chrome-finished Ridler wheels measure 17″ in diameter up front and 18″ out back and are mounted with 215/55 front and 255/45 rear Hercules Raptis WR1 tires showing 2014 date codes. The car is equipped with KYB shocks up front, traction bars out back, and power-assisted front disc brakes.
The interior features front bucket seats and a rear bench reupholstered in red vinyl along with color-coordinated trim and carpets. Equipment includes crank windows, front and rear lap belts, a 12v outlet, and a Hurst shifter. The bottom of the passenger door panel is torn.
The three-spoke steering wheel sits ahead of a 120-mph speedometer, a fuel gauge, and a column-mounted Sunpro tachometer. A trio of Sunpro gauges for coolant temperature, volt meter, and oil pressure are mounted below the aftermarket stereo, which is reportedly inoperable. The speedometer does not read accurately, and the coolant temperature gauge is not connected. The five-digit odometer shows just under 68k miles, approximately 3k of which have been added by the seller. Total mileage is unknown.
The 327ci V8 was overhauled in 2016 and is equipped with a Holly Performance four-barrel carburetor, an electric choke, a chrome-finished air cleaner, Chevrolet-branded valve covers, a set of ceramic-coated headers, and a dual exhaust system with Flowmaster mufflers. The seller states that a roller camshaft was also installed, the radiator has been replaced, and that the car has been driven approximately 2k miles since the build. The engine stampings were removed during the machining of the block, and photos of the engine number before and after machine work are viewable in the gallery below.
Power is sent to the rear wheels through a four-speed manual transmission linked to a 10-bolt rear end. Additional photos showing the suspension, chassis, and driveline are presented in the gallery below.
Decoding the removed Fisher body tag reveals the car was built the third week of December 1968 at the Norwood, Ohio plant and was finished in Ermine White (C2) with red upholstery (724).
