This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is all about taking one of the most aggressive '60s designs and adding ultra-slick paint, a custom A/C interior, four-wheel disc brakes, six-speed stick, a modern LS3 V8, and so much more. So yes, this is the ultimate restomod muscle machine with all the best upgrades.
This coupe knows how to respect its history, but there are also zero worries that anyone will look at this coupe and think it's bone stock. For example, the paint holds close to 1968's Grotto Blue, but the factory never gave you this kind of metallic or deep shine. The investment in plenty of modern clearcoat applied by a very professional hand has a mirror-like effect that highlights all the best curves. We're even told that this one was given all-new sheet metal. It all drivers home the feeling that expense took a back seat to style and power during this car's full restoration. Only the best chrome around can keep up with this kind of shine, and you'll love the bumpers and trim, too. Even the crystal clear headlights shine like jewelry. But this one also has a dark side. The blackout grille, chin spoiler, and rear panel go with the darker pieces, like the tinted windows and 18-inch US Mags wheels for plenty of intimidation. It adds to the sporty style established by iconic Camaro pieces, like the full-width spoiler and cowl hood.
Open the door to a full custom interior that has a terrifically dark performance attitude. And with only about 1,700 miles on this build, it all feels exceptionally fresh. The Recaro name on those leather bucket seats lets you instantly know they have all the right modern bolstering to keep you planted on twisty roads while also being all-day comfortable. Custom door panels, a soft dash pad, a full custom trunk, and a suede-like headliner deliver a modern feeling of comfort. It even feels like a modern car with a center console that has a tall armrest, cup holders, power window switches, and air conditioning controls. The radio is now even an AM/FM/CD/DVD/iPod Sony touchscreen, and it connects to a full subwoofer stereo system. You'll slip behind the grippy Momo sports steering wheel on a tilt column. Beyond that is a custom carbon fiber gauge panel with a full readout package, including a large AutoMeter Cobalt speedo and tach. All of this gives your senses the tingle of performance even before you twist the key and hear this one roar.
You'll love popping the hood at car shows and showing off the top-notch transplant of a modern Camaro motor. The fuel-injected 6.2-liter LS3 V8 is a very cool powerplant to have. After all, they were part of the Camaro's latest revival, and they are good for well over 400 horsepower right out of the box. This was installed in 2016, but they did it with the level of quality that will make you swear the factory did it. In fact, with the smooth inner walls, bright Billet Specialties valve covers, and overall tidy setup, we wouldn't be surprised if you won awards for the engine bay alone. But more than just look terrific, this was built with the right performance pieces, like a Spectre cold air intake, 821 aluminum heads, and headers feeding the Flowmaster dual exhaust. Best of all you have superior control over this big power V8 and its thunderous soundtrack thanks to the six-speed manual transmission. It feeds a strong Moser 9-inch rear. And more than just power, this restomod has all the right upgrades to be a great driver. It includes a Ridetech front suspension, a four-link rear w/coilovers, Ridetech Truturn power steering, and Wilwood four-wheel power disc brakes.
Complete with build receipts, this is the restomod that has stunning looks, a comfy interior, big power, and an overall solid feeling on the road. So if you're looking for an award-worthy Camaro that loves to be enjoyed, you can't miss this custom. Call today!!!
