1968 Chevrolet Camaro Restomod
KILLER BUILD, 383V8 , 700R4, 4-WHL DISCS, COILOVERS, 4-LINK, NEW EVERYTHING!
No one can argue with the timeless look of the first gen Camaro, and the story of how it was introduced as the direct competitor to the wildly successful Ford Mustang has been told numerous times over. Their popularity today might be the strongest its ever been. These cars have become a great platform to customize and make incredible one-of-a-kind rides. However, this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is unique from all the other custom rides out there, because the overall historic muscle car look is untouched, however, glance underneath and you'll be shocked how much has been spent on this ride to take it to the 2019 standard.
Let's start with the exterior, as mentioned, it stays true to form and retains its original look. It's also not pretending to be something it isn't. It doesn't have any fake SS or fake Z/28 badges anywhere! Yep, this Camaro has the simple Chevy “bowties”. The body is clean, straight, and the red paint is vibrant but easy on the eyes. Appropriately named "pull me over red", the deep red paint is accented by a set of slick black stripes and Chevy rally wheels, making this car a rolling icon of Americana. In a sea of SS clones, this '68 is sure to stick out for the simple fact of being what it is and nothing more. Of course, underneath the outer skin this Camaro hides a few choice upgrades with the only the 383 fender badges hinting at what is under the new cowl-induction hood.
Pop the hood, and you'll be greeted with a tastefully dressed up small block Chevrolet 383 stroker V8 mated to a 700R4 overdrive automatic transmission. Just the right amount of chrome accents have been added without making it look completely out of place in the bay. You'll notice mostly everything looks new, and that this is pretty clearly a fairly fresh build that has been properly cared for. Notable upgrades include billet pulleys, and aluminum radiator, anodized fuel rail, MSD electronic ignition, and a Vintage Air A/C system, electric fans, electric fuel pump, among others. The engine, fresh off a rebuild has solid lifters and creates close to 500hp, but thankfully the overdrive transmission is present that allows it to cruise at highway speeds easily.
Underneath the car, you'll find an equal amount of performance upgrades including drilled and slotted 4-wheel disc brakes, ceramic brake pads, QA1 front tubular control arm suspension kit, QA 1 front sway bar and a Flaming River power rack & pinion steering upgrade. At the back of the car, you'll see a new 12-bolt rear housed by a Ridetech 4-link w/ adjustable Heim-joints and coil-over shocks. A new full tank and new exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers and Hedman headers finish off the underside.
The all-new interior retains a largely original appearance, much like the outside, however some upgrades that are key for comfortable drivability. While some key features are original GM options, such as the Tic-Toc-Tach, other subtle features are modern upgrades. The Vintage Air system previously mentioned is seamlessly integrated with the original interior design, and to the untrained eye, nothing looks changed. On a similar note, the radio is a modern unit that looks original but functions as a newer unit. Aside from speakers installed in the kick panels, the interior retains its original look. Everything from the weather stripping, glass, door panels, gauges, carpet, seat covers, dash etc... Is all new and best of all, everything functions as it should.
The longer you look at it, the longer it becomes apparent that this Camaro is more than just a nicely restored car—it is a subtle resto-mod with lots of modern features! This car runs, drives, and sounds great and is a turn-key car ready to hit the streets. If you're looking for fun, this Camaro has you written all over it!
