Chevrolet’s Camaro was GM’s riposte to the salvo fired by Ford that kickstarted the pony car class. Still in continuous production since 1967, the Camaro is now on its sixth generation. That makes examples from the 1967-1969 first generation highly desirable, more so if they are special versions, such as this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Coupe which has just 122 miles since a comprehensive restoration. It’s reported to be a rare and highly optioned Z/28 example and thus a rare find for the 1968 model year. Enthusiast owned; it’s said to have some broach marks on the VIN plate. Furthermore, this car is said to be numbers-matching in terms of engine, transmission, carburetor, distributor, alternator, and 12-bolt posi rear end. Now that’s special!
1968 saw a mere 7,199 Z/28s produced, out of a total model year production run spanning over 235,000 Camaros, so this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Coupe is a pretty rare bird. It’s Bronze Poly exterior glistens in the sunshine, complemented by period wheels wrapped in requisite white-lettered BFGoodrich Radial T/A tires that look their best when they are whipping up a cloud of tire smoke. The rear window sports the factory defrost option too, and the iconic Z/28 spoiler lives on the rear deck lid. All badging is present and correct too. The black interior is reported to come replete with factory seats and headrests, and also has power windows. Like the exterior, the interior looks to be in great condition, with all gauges present, and the white tipped gear shifter prominently located between the seats. The rear seat back can be folded down to create additional luggage space if desired. There’s a period correct Camaro-badged radio in the dash as well.
This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 Coupe comes with the 302ci (5.0L) V8 that reportedly put out 290hp at 5,500rpm and 290lb-ft at 4,200rpm, however unofficial figures are closer to 350hp at higher RPM ranges. The power and torque are sent to the rear wheels via a four-speed manual transmission and 12-bolt Positraction rear end. This car also has power steering to ease handling and maneuvering.
