LMC is very proud to offer for sale this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z28.
The 1967-1969 Camaros were built in either the Norwood, Ohio or Van Nuys, California. The styling of the 1968 Camaro was very like the 1967 design. With the introduction of Astro Ventilation, a fresh-air-inlet system, the side vent windows were deleted. Side marker lights were added on the front and rear fenders as per government regulations. It also had a more pointed front grille and divided rear taillights.
In 1968 Chevrolet advertising was trying to convince buyers as to how close the Camaro was to the iconic Corvette with pictures of the two cars. As well, headlines like “Tough act to follow. Encore.” and “You wouldn’t expect anything to match Corvette’s sports car ride and handling. But when you drive ‘The Hugger…will you be surprised!” made the 1968 Camaro a popular choice for the younger generation.
This 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z28 was produced at the Norwood, Ohio Assembly Plant on the third week of April in 1968 and was sold new from McDonald Chevrolet in Sallisaw, Oklahoma on June 1st, 1968. It was born with the desirable Z28 package that included the 302/290HP “MO” engine, and M21 Muncie 4-speed transmission. Finished from the factory in the very rare and unique color of Corvette Bronze. The original owner would drive this beautiful Z28 for 3 years until he would put it into storage, where it would stay until 2000 when it would be treated to a meticulous 5-year rotisserie nut and bolt restoration with some of the country's most knowledgeable Camaro experts involved. Thus, this Camaro has been restored to a concourse level using many original or N.O.S. GM parts. This Camaro retains its numbers matching 302/290HP engine, numbers matching M21 Muncie 4-speed transmission, and numbers matching rear end.
