Chevrolet threw the Camaro out there in September 1966, as it wanted a slice of the new Pony Car market that Ford created with the Mustang. The Bowtie couldn't let the Blue Oval have all the fun. The rivalry between the two cars continues to this day, with the Camaro and Mustang still selling strong. What we've got here is a classic 68 Camaro that's undergone some resto-modding. Say hello to this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Restomod up for sale, and it could be yours if you choose. Do you?
Dressed in a menacing black coat of reportedly new paint with gray detailing at the front, this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Restomod also bears 427 badging, telling us it may have been a 427 car at the start. That's not true anymore, but we will reveal its underhood secrets in the next section. Other details of note include the modern headlamp clusters and revamped rear lighting clusters too. The eagle-eyed will note a kill switch on the rear valance alongside the fuel filler cap, highlighting that this Camaro can be tracked if desired. The lovely period-style wheels reportedly wear new tires of a suitably chunky disposition – after all, Sixties muscle cars look best with fat rubber on them, waiting to be burnt off in billowing clouds of smoke by a grunty V8. Inside, you'll find a roll cage, Sparco racing seats with four-point harnesses, and a sporty flat-bottomed steering wheel. Yes, this Camaro is a race machine. The pistol-grip shifter for the automatic transmission further reinforces the notion of slamming it into D and mashing the gas pedal into the firewall. The dash is said to be new, as is the carpeting. While we've told you that this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Restomod is a race machine on the inside, prepare for some surprise creature comforts.

There's even a custom center console box with two cupholders. This appears to be a race car that you can, whisper it, daily drive!
Now for the truly juicy news, and that's the 502ci big-block V8 lurking under the hood of this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Restomod.
