    • The Rally Sport or RS package consisted of concealed headlights and several other appearance upgrades. It was optional on any version including the base model, the Super Sport or the Z/28. Of the 235,137 Camaros produced in 1968, 40,977 had the $105.35 option.
    • A single 1968 Z/28 convertible was built for then Chevrolet general manager Elliott “Pete” Estes.
    • General Motors finally decided to market the Z/28. At first they were not sure about offering the production race car to the masses. Sales took off with almost 7,200 being sold in 1968 compared to sales of a little over 600 in 1967.

    Muscle Car Specifications

    Little changed for the second year of Camaro production. Minor changes were made to the front and rear of the car. The square headlights from the 1967 Camaro were replaced with rectangular ones. Side markers were added and the vents were removed from the windows. All minor stuff which says that overall the designers got it right the first time. Pony Car fans were well satisfied with the car also. In 1967, Chevrolet sold about 221,000 Camaros. In 1968, sales were over 235,000. The car was well received.

    The base Camaro continued to be the car that emphasized looks over performance. The largest engine available in the base lineup was the 327ci small block. It was a good engine but it couldn’t compete with the big blocks or the high performance 302ci found in the Z/28s. The Super Sport or SS continued to be the ground pounder of the group. It was a ¼ mile machine. The Z/28 continued to display its road racing roots. While the SS may have been the power lifter the Z/28 was the tri-athlete of the group.

    Super Sport 396

    The Super Sport 396 package included a unique hood with twin banks of four square simulated air intakes, big SS 396 emblems and a host of other performance upgrades. Of course the heart of the car was the 396ci big block. Several versions were offered and they all offered very good performance. The straight line performance of the SS396 was very similar to the Z/28. Because the SS was much cheaper than the Z/28 GM sold about four Super Sports for every Z/28 sold.

    General Motors decided to let the public have their Z/28 in 1968. It was still a bare knuckles race car. Air conditioning was not an option. Neither was an automatic transmission. Disk brakes were a mandatory option. All the suspension Components were beefed up and many of the other critical drive train Components were built up. This was the real thing. Not some badged up pretend muscle car.

    Finally, for those not content with the SS396, one chevy dealership offered a more powerful Camaro and became a legend in the process. The ”Super Yenko Camaro” or SYC was billed as the ultimate Camaro. It’s easy to see why. The fine people at Yenko Sports in Canonsburg Pennsylvania ripped the 396ci big blocks out of about 100 Camaros and replaced it with a 427ci L72 Corvette engine producing at least 425hp. After the engine transfer, they beefed up a few other Components, added a unique hood and threw in a few badges for good measure. The result was a $3800 Camaro that could do 0-60 in less than 4 seconds and the ¼ mile in the low 12 second range.

    Pony Car Competition

    More manufacturers entered the pony car market in 1968. American Motors introduced the 1968 AMX and the 1968 Javelin in an attempt gain share in the rapidly growing market segment. The AMC AMX and AMC Javelin were similar cars with the main difference was the deletion of the back seat in the AMX. Other than the 1968 Corvette, the AMX was the only two seater widely available in the marketplace. The Camaro’s big sister, the 1968 Firebird, remained largely unchanged. Plymouth went all in with its 1968 Barracuda. They dropped a 426 Hemi in the engine bay. Seventy lucky owners got a pony car that was ridiculously powerful and, more than likely, ridiculously hard to keep on the road. Ford answered the sales challenge from the Camaro and the horse power challenge by adding the 427 Cobra and 428 Cobra Jet engines to the lineup for the 1968 Mustang.

    The 1969 Camaro was the last of the first generation Camaros. The body was updated to make it appear “longer and lower.” Many consider it the main inspiration for the reintroduced 2009 Camaro.

    Model Overview

    Images are general in nature and may not reflect the specific vehicle selected.

    History of the 1967-1969 Chevrolet Camaro

    The 1967 Camaro was Chevrolet’s impressive, if belated, response to the Ford Mustang. Produced in sport coupe and convertible styles, Camaro offered an extensive «menu» of optional performance, appearance and comfort/convenience — much to the delight of enthusiasts, then and now.

    During the first year, a Trans-Am racing-inspired RPO Z28 302 V-8 Special Performance package and big-block SS396 options were added. Camaro paced the Indy 500 in 1967, and would do so again in 1969.

    Camaro sported subtle trim changes in 1968, and Astro Ventilation eliminated the need for vent windows. The rear suspension was also reworked. Popular SS, RS and Z28 equipment groups continued to attract eager customers.

    The 1969 redesign gave Camaro a longer, lower look, with squared wheelhouses and new detailing inside and out. A limited run of special-order 1969 Camaros was factory- equipped with a 427-cid V-8.

    Each first-generation Camaro has its adherents, but it was the ever-popular ’69 that inspired the 2010 revival of the marque. Parts for 1967-69 Camaros are limited only by the restorer’s checkbook; even new bodies are obtainable.

    This Camaro drives like a dream, and is ready to take home trophies at every level.

    Our COPO has the original numbers matching L30 327 cubic inch V8 engine that was factory rated at 275 horsepower and still rests under the hood. It has the original 4 speed transmission and 12 bolt rear as well as many of the small components like distributor alternator and such.

    All the interior looks great with the twin bucket seats, gauges in the dash, Am/Fm Radio, carpet, and original 4-speed shifter on the floor.

    This Camaro COPO was purchased new at Jack Head that has been a California car since new with original black plates. The original owner wanted a new Verdoro Green Firebird but none were available so he ordered the Camaro from the local dealer.

    For years it remained on the same street in California with only two owners. The outside is virtually rust free and we can only find a few imperfections near the lower rear passenger quarter. The hood and from the doors back look to be original metal and the front fenders and header are believed to have been replaced at one time.

    1968 Camaro Parts and Restoration Information

    1968 Camaro Specifications

    By its second year, the Camaro was already stealing away some of the pony car market. The same basic body style was used for the 1968 Camaro and it is sometimes hard to spot the differences between a 1967 Camaro and a 1968 Camaro.

    Upon closer inspection, you will see that the vent windows were deleted and side markers were added (per new federal safety regulations). Rectangular parking lamps replaced the round ones on the grille. Also new for 1968 was a 350 horsepower version of the 396 cubic inch big block V8.

    The 1968 Camaro was available in many different configurations. From a plain Jane sport coupe to asphalt eating Super Sport, there was something for everyone! All 1968 Camaros shared the same body unlike the Chevelle and were available in either coupe or convertible. Buyers could choose from the base model Sport Coupe, drag strip ready Super Sport, or road racing Z-28. The Rally Sport option with hidden headlights could be added as a separate packing to any of those models.

    Interiors could be optioned with either bucket seats or bench seats and were available in a variety of colors and styles. Standard interiors were available in Black, Blue, Red, White, or Ivy Gold. Buyers who ordered a deluxe interior received unique door panels with molded in arm rests and Comfortweave seats with color choices of Aqua, Black, Blue, Pearl, Red, or Ivy Gold. Even rarer was the deluxe Houndstooth interior with unique pleats in Black, White, or Pearl. A fold down rear seat was available but very rare. An optional console was available with our without gauges on bucket seat cars. The buyer could have ordered a number of different exterior colors including Tuxedo Black, Ermine White, Grotto Blue, Fathom Blue, Island Teal, Ash Gold, Grecian Gold, Rallye Green, Tripoli Turquoise, Teal Blue, Cordovan Maroon, Corvette Bronze, Seafrost Green, Matador Red, Palomino Ivory, LeMans Blue, Sequoia Green, Butternut Yellow, or British Green.

    To complement the wide variety of available colors were the available drive train combinations that could be opted for on the 1968 Camaro. Base power was had by one of two available six cylinder engines. Buyers who wanted more power could opt for aV-8. Manual transmissions were either 3 speeds or 4 speeds. The 2 speed Powerglide was the standard transmission and a 3 speed Turbo Hydramatic was optional.

    About 235,000 1968 Camaros were produced. 214,707 coupe, 20,440 convertible, 235,147 total.

    Chevy Camaro 1968 Technical Specifications

    The 1968 Camaro looked very similar to the 1967 externally. Small body changes included the addition of side marker lights (due to a new gov ernment mandate), a pointier front grille, and divided rear taillights. Due to the 1968’s new Astro Ventilation fresh-air-inlet system, gone were the side window windwings.

    Engine offerings for 1968 were nearly identical to those of 1967, with the exception of the RPO L89 option that fitted aluminium cylinder heads to the RPO L78 396 big-block V8. Due to the high cost of the L89 option ($868.95), only 272 1968 Camaro’s were fitted with this performance upgrade.

    Inside, the 1968 Camaro was similar but incorporated a new centre console, newly styled door panels, and circular Astro Ventilation vents on the outer edges of the dash. Although the 1968 had new seat covers, the big news was the availability of trendy-looking houndstooth seat fabric.

    In late 1968, John Z. DeLorean became general manager of Chevrolet Motor Division, taking over from Elliott M. «Pete» Estes. It was a good year for the redesigned Camaro as production of 235,147 Camaro’s was realized in the model year. The total represented 2.8% of total U.S. industry production and compared to 220,906 cars and 2.9% of industry in 1967. According to automotive trade journals of the day, the total included 50,937 6-cylinder (I-6) cars and 184,178 V8 engine-powered Camaro’s, although this adds up to only 235,115 cars.

    Industry trade journals reported that 184,735 Camaro’s were built at the Norwood, Ohio, plant and 49,064 Camaro’s were made at a factory in Van Nuys (Los Angeles), California. In addition, the trade journals showed 1,248 Camaro’s «produced» at an assembly plant in Bloomfield, New Jersey. According to Camaro Brand Manager Scott Settlemire’s sources, these 1,248 cars were actually units produced at the Norwood factory and shipped to a site near Bloomfield (possibly Little Ferry), where they were «knocked down» for shipment overseas. This means that the total number of cars built in Norwood, Ohio, was actually 185,983.

    The 1968 Camaro Z28 was road tested by 3 major magazines with varying results. «Road & Track» magazine (June 1968) recorded a 3.4-second 0 to 30-mph time, a 6.9-second 0 to 60-mph time, a 15-second 0 to 100-mph time and a 14.90-second quarter mile at 100 mph. «Car Life» magazine (July 1968) recorded a 3.5-second 0 to 30-mph time, a 7.4-second 0 to 60-mph time, a 14.2-second 0 to 100-mph time and a 14.85-second quarter mile at 101.40 mph. «Car and Driver» magazine (June 1968) recorded a 2.2-second 0 to 30-mph time, a 5.3-second 0 to 60-mph time, a 12.3-second 0 to 100-mph time and a 13.77-second quarter mile at 107.39 mph. The «Car and Driver» car was specially prepped by the factory, but beat out a Mustang with similar modifications. A single 1968 Camaro Z28 convertible was specially built for Chevrolet general manager Elliott «Pete» Estes.

    Of the Camaro’s built in the model-year, 56.4% had automatic transmission, 20.2% had a 4-speed manual transmission, 21.7% were equipped with an I-6 (Inline 6-cylinder) engine, and 78.3% were equipped with a V8 engine. 82% had an AM radio, 3.1% had an AM/FM radio, 1.8% had a factory tape deck, 15.3% had air-conditioning, 2.3% had a tilt steering wheel, 49.0% had power steering, 10.2% had power drum brakes, 8.6% had disc brakes, 1.4% had power side windows, 97.9% had front bucket seats, 32.8% had a vinyl roof, 85.3% had white sidewall tyres, 25.8% had a tinted windshield (only), 27.8% had all tinted glass, 21.7% had dual exhausts, 15.6% had a limited-slip differential, 62.9% had wheel covers and 0.1% had cruise control.

    Camaro sales for calendar-year 1968 came to a new high of 213,980 units (2.50% of the industry) compared to 205,816 (2.7% of the industry) in 1967. A total of 209,822 new Camaro’s were registered in the 1968 calendar year compared to 204,862 in the 1967 calendar year and 41,100 in the 1966 calendar year. Chevrolet boasted that the 1968 Camaro SS (Super Sport) was dedicated to the «fun crowd.» The sales catalog said it was «a husky performer and looks it.» Big engines, a beefed-up suspension and special equipment features made this model-option stand out.

    The prices of the RPO Z27 SS package varied according to engine. With the L48 V8 the dealer paid $152 and got $210.65 at retail. With the L35 V8 engine the dealer cost was $190 and the retail price was $263.30. With the L34 V8 the dealer cost was $266 and the retail price was $368.65. The L78 version of the SS wholesaled for $361 and retailed for $500.30. The L78/L89 V8 version with aluminium cylinder heads retailed for $868.95 (dealer cost unknown).
