The Model -Answering the call to Ford’s Mustang, the first generation F Body Camaros were brought to market in late 1966 and badged as 1967 models.   Several engine options were available in the first generation Camaros, including the standard 230 cu in straight-6, 302, 307, 327, 350, 396, and 427 cu in V-8’s.  With just three years in production, each succeeding year saw only modest designs variances to the sport coupe and convertible body styles.  Fortunately Chevy had upwards of 60 options available including the special RS, SS and Z/28 packages from day one.  The 1968 Camaro offered here saw just a few factory changes over the previous model year with the most easily identifiable being the removal of the vent windows and addition of side marker lights to the front and rear fenders.  Other modest changes included restyled headlights, and taillights, while the interior was fitted with a new padded dash. While Chevrolet may have been late to the pony car club, they surely raised the bar with the sporty Camaro.  

 

The Car -The owner has stated that this Camaro has just been completed, started only a few times, and has never been raced. That doesn’t mean its not ready to tear up some asphalt.  Fitted with a 496 cubic inch big block, this pony car is turning out some serious horsepower.  Nothing less than professionally done, describes this car that was completed with all new parts.  The engine was built with Brodix aluminum heads, stainless valves, complete Scat stroker kit with forged crank, forged JE pistons, and forged H-beam rods.  A complete Reher-Morrison valve train with new roller lifters, pushrods, Harland Sharp rocker arms, roller cam, and Reher Morrison rocker arm girdle to boot.  A complete MSD ignition system and wires bring this monster to life.  The 1175 CFM Holley Dominator by Gary Williams of Jackson, MS and complete Aeroquip fuel system is extremely responsive.  Other upgrades include new aerospace billet vacuum pump, Moroso Billet electric water pump, Reher Morrison CNC’d Edelbrock intake with CNC’d top spacers and new Hedman ceramic pro headers.  Putting the power to the street is the new Powerglide transmission by PTC, racing clutches, and PTC torque converter topped off with a Hurst shifter.  Billet axles, and a fabricated Ford rear, with Strange Center 7/16” tubes direct the horsepower to the meaty rear racing Good Years.  Stopping power comes from a new Wildwood 4-wheel disc brake system including a Wildwood master cylinder, and is balanced by a complete new rear coil suspension by Chassis Research with 90-10 front shocks.  Inside, the interior has been fitted with a roll cage, new black carpet, Autometer gauges, a Lokar throttle assembly, aluminum interior and RJS aluminum seat with black cover.  But the list goes on with new polished Billet Specialties wheels, and a stunning two stage paint with variegated gold leaf stripping and custom hood and trunk gold leaf accents. The paint alone cost was $8,600. All fabrication, assembly, wiring and engine by Tim Palmisano Systems, and weight distribution on the car was set up with four wheel scales.  Offered at auction with Motostalgia on a Bill of Sale only.  If your looking for a well fitted race car, prep your bidding paddle as this one is ready, set, go.
