Description for Chevrolet Camaro 19680000

REAL 1968 RS/SS 396 Camaro with all original born with body panels and originalborn with Ash Gold paint.Looks like it has never been repainted!Not really a barn find but found in a warehouselot in Bakersfield, alifornia as shown in Gallery Picture. This original California Black Plate Camaro was last registered in 1985 with odometer showing 16,410 miles. I am not sure if miles have turned over or not but there is very little wear on foot pedalsand driver's seat bottom. Car has some front and rear damage as shown in pics. Most of damage is to front fenders andfront header panel.I believe all the damages are repairable without having to replace any of the original body panelsexcept the front header panelbut this should be determined by a professional body repair man which I am not. The engine is long gone but car still retains it's born with 12 bolt posi rear end and more importantly it's born with Numbers Matching "C Code"Turbo 400 Automatic Transmission which only came with the 396 big block cars. The 12 bolt rear is a PG code which is a 3:07 posi. The original power steering pump with deep groove pulley is also still in place. There is also a large single fuel line which appears to be untouched and I believe would indicate this to be an L78 375hp car.Original driveshaft is also with car.All of the original RS equipment is also still with car including vacuum canisters, iper motor etc. Wheels are 15" Rallys with BF Goodrich radialshaving about 80% tread.I am including a used but excellent conditionfactoryOEM RS grill with headlight covers and trim shown in picture. There is also an aftermarket front header panel in excellent condition included in sale.

Being a California car there is very little rust. There is a small rust hole at the very bottom rear ofboth front fenders about the size of a quarterand a very small area alongthe bottom rear of the right quarter panel. Also the hood hasa fewpinholes at the driver's side front corner.There is some (surface rust only)mostly across the top of the car due to the original paint and black vinyl top beingexposed to the California Sun for years. The originalcarpet was removed to revealthat the original floorpans are beautiful and rust free. The undercarriage is also solid and rust free. Unfortunately some water found its way into the trunk over the years and the original trunk pan is rusted and will need to be replaced. Gas tank is also dented and should be replaced.All around the recessed trunk pan is rust free including shock tower area, ear pan, tc.

The Factory Deluxe Interior is in amazing condition. The dash, ash pad, oor panels, isors,and console are all in very good to excellent condition.The seats however did suffer from the sun exposure and will need to be repadded and recovered. Carpeting and headliner is needed. All of the factory glass is in excellent condition and all windows roll up and down very nicely. Doors open and close solid and tight.The exterior chrome moldings around the glass is in excellent condition.One piece at lower right rear windshield is missing as well as a couple moldings on bottom right side of car. Both front and rear bumpers are missing.

Overall, his is a very originaland solid RS/SS Big Block Camaro thatis screaming to be back on the road and in my opinion would be a fairly easy restoration. Once done, ou would have a very valuable and desirable car that is a solid investment.
