Total production of 1968 Camaro's was 235,115. Only 20,440 Rally Sport Convertible's were built (less than 9% of the Camaro's produced in '68) Out of that 9%, many were 6 cylinder cars. This is an original V8 equipped example. It is currently powered by a latter 4-bolt 350 c.i.d engine that has been rebuilt, balanced, and blue-printed with less than 2,500 miles logged on it.

The exterior displays beautiful sheetmetal throughout. The light blue metallic finish shows well throughout, with minor imperfections on close inspection. This is a dry climate example and it shows.

The bright work is in good condition throughout this Camaro. Notice the optional upper and lower body moulding along with the decorative wheel well trim.

The concealed headlights were a Rally Sport feature and quite an attractive one at that! This car features fully functional concealed headlights along with a clean and detailed grille assembly. The steel cowl induction hood fits this Camaro's look very well.

A mild custom, this stance is courtesy of GM Rally Wheels. They are sized at 14 inches in front and 15 inches out back. The tires are tried and true B.F. Goodrich Radial T/A's sized at 245/70R14s in front and 235/60R15s in back respectively.

The interior shows well. The Strato Bucket Seating is complimented by the correct center console with optional Super Sport gauges.

The dash displays the correct instruments along with an added 8,000 rpm Pro Tachometer mounted in front of the factory Tachometer/Clock.

The door panels have been slightly customized with the addition of these high output speakers. A remote controlled Sony CD stereo system has been installed in the factory location.

The engine compartment proudly displays this 350 c.i. performance built 4bbl. V8 engine. Although originally equipped with a 327 c.i.d. powerplant, this TWZ engine suffix coded 350 provides extra power and reliability. This engine has accumulated approximately 2,500 miles since being rebuilt, balanced, and blueprinted. You could get a 350 c.i. engine in the '68 Camaro, but it was regulated to the Super Sport only.

The '68 Camaro's rode on a 108-inch wheelbase with 59.0 inch tread front and 58.9-inch rear-wide stance for flat level cornering. The '68 was coined as "The Working Man's Vette" in '68 GM brochures.

The 1968 Camaro featured revised suspension to eliminate the wheel hop problems associated with the first year Camaros. The rear shocks were staggered. Also this car is equipped with a 10-bolt rear end and stout multi-leaf suspension. The flooring and general undercarriage condition is very good and undetailed throughout this car.

Less than half of all first generation Camaros were equipped with the C06 (power top) option. This car displays a clean and detailed black soft top and vinyl soft top boot.

Convertible first generation Camaro's features an exclusive windshield and visors unique to the Convertible models.

Further inspection of the engine compartment will reveal an Edelbrock aluminum intake and an Edelbrock 4bbl. carburetor. The firewall, inner fenderwells, and core support are solid and clean. The original trim tag is in place as well, confirming the rear special order paint code (unknown).

Timeless! The first generation Camaro's still enjoy broad appeal. The Camaro is a car the buyer could tailor to fit his needs and his pocket. This is your opportunity to own an exceptional example of a '68 Rally Sport Convertible and an unusual one at that. We hope you enjoyed our presentation.
