Powered by its original 327 c.i. engine, previously rebuilt, this car features an Edelbrock aluminum intake, a Holley 4bbl, carburetor, and free-flowing headers. Originally rated at 275 horsepower, it is now approximately 300 ponies. This smallblock V8 is mated to the M20 Muncie 4-Speed Manual Transmission. This Camaro is also equipped with air conditioning. This block is matched to this car, confirmed by its V.I.N. and "EA" engine suffix. This is a '68 327 c.i. block originally rated at 275HP.

The dash cluster features the factory tachometer and speedometer. This is a turn-key example ready to drive and enjoy. An aftermarket Kenwood Cassette stereo has been installed along with aftermarket rear speakers.
Chevrolet's '68 Camaro boasted many significant mechanical and cosmetic upgrades over the first year 1967 Camaro.
Gone were the vent windows due to the introduction of Chevrolet's flow-through Astro-Ventilation in 1968. This car is equipped with Soft-Ray tinted glass.
The front end showcases a "new" for '68 front grill assembly design.
The exterior displays a brilliant red finish over a solid body. The paint is in good condition, with a number of chip touch-up on close inspection.
The doors, hood, and trunk open and close correctly.
The door undersides are solid. This is a dry climate example and it shows.
A steel cowl induction hood keeps fresh air circulation to the 327 V8 engine. In 1968, just over 78% of Camaro's were fitted with a V8 engine, while only 20% were ordered with the 4-speed manual transmission.
Calendar sales for Camaro's 1968 model year reached a new high with 213,980 units sold.
Chevrolet bragged of their 1968 Camaro SS as "a husky performer with the looks of it." The Camaro had the brawn to back up the words too. The undercarriage featured a revised rear suspension with additional traction and control over the '67s setup. This car is equipped with the beefy 12-bolt rear end with multi-leaf rear springs.
Further inspection of the undercarriage will confirm exceptional flooring throughout. This car has been well cared for and it shows.
Further inspection of the engine and engine bay will show detail such as a chromed timing cover, Edelbrock vintage finned aluminum valve covers & breather along with clean and solid original sheetmetal throughout the firewall, inner fenders, and core support.
The original trim identification tag is in place. This car is a Norwood built Camaro that was originally finished in Sequoia Green with Gold bucket seating, certainly popular hues of the era.
The trunk is in order and in good condition, complete with spare.
The paint is in good condition. Ther are paint chip touch-ups done, however the car still shows well as you can see. The optional lower body moulding and wheel well moulding accent the brilliant red paint perfectly.
This Camaro rides on 15-Inch chromed Cragar S/S wheels wrapped in P215/60 series radial tires.
These gauges were a special option. They are located just in front on the console. This car is also fitted wth the factory tachometer/clock assembly. The gauges work.
