Garage
Vehicle Name none yet
Year 1968
Make Chevrolet
Model Camaro
Color Blue
Packages RS
History Well used driver quality numbers matching Camaro RS
Exterior
I don't care for the blue very much, it looks to have had at least 1 repaint. Original color code was K. Replaced the dull cracked and leaking tail lights with new '67 units (like the look better) and added Digi-tails....replacing all the exterior lenses and bezels as time allows, and going with LED lamps. Digi-tails front markers are next....when I get a break in the Honey-do's.

Interior
Originally code 726 interior, someone has colored it all black.........probably never find a build sheet, but not gonna stop me from looking. Got a new Kilduff shifter to go with the TH200-4R that will go into her, looks like it will live in the factory console nicely.

Drivetrain
Still has the original "born with" 2 spd powerglide. I don't think she was born with this tail.....but I'm glad she has this over the 7.5".

Under the Hood
Partial VIN on 327 block matches the VIN on the car, Double hump heads with no accessory holes. I think it is the L30 275 horse 327......but I need the build sheet.
Apparently Air conditioning was not an important option to the original buyer.......that's gotta change.

Suspension
Bought some Calvert racing split mono leafs that I need to get installed.

Wheel and Tire
Plugged in some Wheel Vintique 10" ralley wheels with 5" BS. trimmed a "stray" exhaust hanger someone cobbled on and added some air to the shocks. Replaced the death trap wheel and tires that it had with some Cooper Cobra's.
