For consignment, a truly spectacular version of the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro
This now high performance car with its 468ci big block V8 capable of producing massive horsepower and now completely redone after 4 painstaking years of attention to detail is almost flawless. No stone was left unturned from the body and paint to the rich luxurious interior, this SIRAACA multiple time winner has all the right boxes checked to make even the most critical of gear heads drool. Read on and you too will be impressed!
PPG Black paint, about 2 miles deep, covers all the straight rust-free exterior slabs which mind their gaps like a precision marching band. We will throw on some lipstick red stripes, which race back the massively scooped cowl hood, skip the roof, and then start back up again covering the decklid and finishing on the rear of the small tail spoiler, and folks we definitely have a looker, and a cooker. The SS grille has straight horizontal lines in chromed glory and includes 2 hidden headlight covers off the same pattern and an SS badge in the center. A large rear facing, (cowl induction), hood scoop is now on top of the new hood, and the black is just miles deep everywhere you look. A thin trim line of chrome is seen running around the wheel wells, along the rocker and the bottom, and add just a bit of bling along with the Riddler nicely polished in 18-inch wheels that adorn the corners. Speaking of the rear, a beautiful small spoiler now adorns the trunk lid, and frames the horizontal brake light setup and SS fuel filler cap, again with nice bezels and a pristine rear bumper looking like it was just dipped in chrome.
The passenger compartment utilizes plenty of pure black vinyl in deluxe form courtesy of TMI. On the door panels we note molded and formed armrests with a trim spear that matches with an upward swoop. Pristine chrome for the window crank, door release and Camaro badging, all buttoned up looking just great. In the passenger compartment, is tuck and roll pattern vinyl in black inserted into inner panels surrounded by smooth overstuffed black bolsters. These seats are also courtesy of TMI and are looking good and like new. The rear bench matches and is also pristine in the same pattern. The console, in full black plastic houses houses a futuristic airliner throttle styled shifter with a carbon fiber surround, and all is very clean. Carpets are clean and also black, and above is the original style dash now with black padded covering on top and instrument deep gauges. Gauges are vintage 3 in 1 style, and have a digital odometer, as well as analog pointers. The center of the dash, with its shiny chrome surround, is housing the radio and Vintage Air temperature and fan sliders. A polished 3 spoke leather wrapped steering wheel is mounted to the factory column and finishes out the interior nicely.
A 468ci V8 engine now adorns the restored engine bay and is just beautiful inside under the hood. A reddish orange block, dressed to the nines with chrome valve covers, air cleaner cover, and chromed or polished accessories are seen along with shiny headers. Stock style heads are held on with ARP fasteners and roller rockers have been added. Below the chrome air cleaner is a Holley intake manifold, and it is fed by a single 4-barrel 750cfm carburetor. A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission is out on the back and at 12-bolt rear axle with 3.55 gears and Positraction makes the tires smoke. Just a great presentation with the reddish orange and polished chrome working with supple shiny hoses and wires.
Showroom would be the word for the undercarriage with not a speck of dirt seen, all shiny black paint and structural framing, floor pans and wheel wells and rockers. A H pipe exhaust attached to the snakelike headers and Flowmaster mufflers is now seen snaking its way underneath to the rear of the car. The front end possesses stellar condition independent QA1 coilover suspension, with tubular control arms, and leaf spring rear suspension. Wilwood power disc brakes are now on all 4 corners and subframe connectors are noted underneath as well as stainless steel brake and fuel lines. All is looking good with miles deep paint and nary a spot of undercoating or rust.
A quick starter with a great roar, and some awesome power. It handled great with the suspension and tubular control arms, and it is a nice riding cruiser, but is really meant as a street bruiser. It has the kick to prove it, and its bite is definitely worse than its bark. All functions were working swimmingly at the time of our drive, but we did notice that the speedometer will need to be calibrated.
