Description of 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 RS

This is it, the legend, done just the way you'd want. This is a real-deal 1968 Camaro Z/28 with a great color combination, a blistering numbers-matching 302 motor, a quick-shifting Muncie 4-speed, and the ultra-desirable RS package. Beautifully and expensively restored, it's not quite a trailer queen (although it's close) and we're quite certain you'll have a hard time staying out of the driver's seat as you take it from show to show. This is one heck of a Z/28!
Born as a Code UU LeMans Blue, the restorers did the right thing and didn't opt for a color change. Switching away from this iconic shade of blue would be simple blasphemy, and we're happy the color lives on. Paint and bodywork are outstanding with virtually zero issues with prep or final finish, making this Z look absolutely spectacular. But it's not like all those Hugger Orange cars out there, and even with white stripes, this is a more subdued hammer for prowling the streets and chances are that nobody will notice what a ferocious piece this is until it's way too late. A few dress-up pieces like the bright chrome bumpers, chin spoiler, and proper RS hidden headlights are always a welcome option on a high-performance classic car like this. A ducktail spoiler out back makes it look suitably racy and all the proper Z/28 badges are in place. Nobody will mistake this for anything other than what it is, and we've found that cars like this are always in demand.
Basic black has always suited the Camaro best, and with the Z/28's all-business attitude, the surroundings are ideally suited to high-performance driving. The buckets wear quality reproduction seat covers that are more defined then most and the door panels are nicely rendered with great bright trim. Lots of desirable options include a center console, factory tachometer and clock, and the gauge package ahead of the chrome Hurst shifter. An original AM/FM radio is still in the dash, and amazingly it still working, or maybe you'd just prefer the song of the 302 much better than anything on the radio anyway. The woodgrain steering wheel and woodgrain applique on the dash and center console is gorgeous and adds some warmth to the all-black interior, and embroidered Chevrolet floor mats are there to keep the carpets in shape. This car also sports a recent trunk mat that fits very well, plus a full-sized spare and jack assembly that's also tucked away neatly under a matching mat.
Experts will be pleased to note that a numbers-matching MO-code 302 remains under the hood, cackling and snarling like it should. The bright Chevy Orange paint, chrome valve covers, and matching chrome air cleaner complete with stock decals all add to the performance air under the hood, and it's got all the correct little pieces, too. There's a Holey 4-barrel carburetor on top, a correct intake, and the factory exhaust manifolds weren't swapped out for any noisy headers, so the dual exhaust sounds just right. The numbers-matching 4-speed Muncie snaps through the gears with authority and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end keeps up with the 302 V8 without complaint. The underside is extremely clean and nicely refinished, but again, it's going to be hard to relegate this one to show-only status despite the quality. There's a newer gas tank out back, fresh lines and hoses everywhere, and power steering and power front disc brakes ensure a great ride each time out. Correct Rally wheels offer the right look and carry 215/65/15 BFGoodrich redline radials for a performance look.
The 1968 Z/28 is one of the most desirable of the early Camaros, particularly with the RS package. Beautifully restored with an eye towards originality, we can guarantee this Z won't last long, so call today!
