68 Camaro build from the unknown.
Iíve been working on my 1968 Camaro since lastJuly and imp finally getting around to starting an actual build page for her.
I found her on Craigslist and from the picturesshe looked to be in good shape. She had new sheet metal from the firewallforward and she was running. When I actually went to see her in person ofcourse I found a lot more wrong from a body stand point. She had rust and rotin the rear quarters, tail pan, rockers (she came with new ones though) anddoors. The man I was buying her from got it from a guy withintentions of restoring, but like most sold her before finishing for his ownreasons. The engine and tranny must have been pulled at some point because fromwhat I can tell the car was originally an automatic. She had all new motormounts. She has a 350 coupled with a 4 speed Muncie (not rock crusher). Thedrive shaft was not connected, the exhaust wasnít connected, the clutch wasnítconnected and the gas pedal wasnít connected either. He was asking 7k for her, but seemed to haveall the parts. I was able to talk him down a little so by the end of the day Ihad my self a 68 Camaro project car.
A lot hadhappened since sense then and I will follow this post with chronological poststo show the Journey sheís been on over this last year. Please stay tuned!
