Vehicle Name Sam
Year 1968
Make Chevrolet
Model Camaro
Color Blue
Packages RS
History Well used driver quality numbers matching Camaro RS
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 installed. Rebuilt the RS headlight buckets.

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 mated to the TH200-4R that is transplanted into her from the Camino.

Came with the original "born with" 2 spd powerglide installed. I don't think she was born with this tail.....but I'm glad she has this over the 8.2".

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.
Installed Vintage Air direct fit kit....new lex-a-lite aluminum radiator and electric fan.

Installed some Calvert racing split mono leafs, Cal-tracs and Calvert racing 9 way adjustable rear shocks.

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