This is a rare opportunity to purchase a true piece of automotive history.
For sale, our beautiful fully restored, numbers matching, 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS / SS with original L48 350ci 295hp engine, connected to original Muncie (M21) 4 speed transmission and 12 bolt rear end, This is a true SS car.
The car was imported into the UK in 2016, by a company in Essex, where the car sat until April 2017 when we purchased it. The only work carried out on the car in the UK up until this point was a rebuild of the 350ci engine in March 2017.
The car benefits from power steering, front disc brakes, tich toch tach & clock, centre console & gauge pack, wood grain instrument panel, rare SS steering wheel & very rare fibre optic system.
Over the last year the car has been stripped down to a shell and extensive repairs to the floors, foot wells and rockers completed. The car has also received a complete respray of its original British Green paintwork (a one year only paint colour offered on the Camaro & Corvette).
The car has been returned to as close to factory spec as possible including Rochester 4 barrel carburettor and correct SS 350 air cleaner. The car has also been treated to new Firestone Wide Oval Radial Redline FR70 X 14 tyres over body coloured steel wheels with dog dish hub caps.
