Greetings fellow Camaro enthusiasts!
My name is Tom and Iím from Iowa.
I just sold my 1968 Rally Sport Camaro that I had owned for thirty years. Drove it for ten years, disassembled it, needed lots of work, and then it just sat. Never got to finish it due to marriage, kids, house, and etc. Sold it to a guy who has wanted it for the past twenty years. So it went to a good home.
I had a renewed interest in it when my wife asked, ďDo you want to buy the Harley youíve been saving for or use the money to fix up your old Camaro?Ē Hmmmm?
Well, I decided to fix up my RS and began searching for parts via catalogs, Internet, and eBay.
I even checked out the Dynacorn bodies first hand and came up with many options to complete the restoration.
Now I know I said earlier that I sold it, which I did. Why?
Well, in the process of searching for parts, I found another 1968 Camaro for sale.
It just kept popping up over and over during my searches. I finally called the owner and discovered he used to work for General Motors and he was the only owner! He had bought it for his wife in 1968, she didnít drive it much(81,000 miles in 42 years), they never had kids, and she just passed away. After some soul searching, I quickly made an offer and bought it.
I am now the second owner of a nice original driver condition unmolested 1968 Camaro. It was repainted in the eighties to a nice Fathom Blue with a new black vinyl top. The top was replaced because the owner noticed some bubbles in the vinyl. When the old fabric was removed, there was no rust, just the glue had let go. The car was delivered and returned to be redone because the owner said they used the wrong grain of vinyl the first time!
The car has many nice original options. Power brakes, power steering, front disc brakes, air conditioning, console clock, tilt wheel, cruise control, and etc. My sixteen-year-old son loves the car and has helped on anything weíve worked on so far. New front spoiler, rear spoiler, oil & filter change, cooling system flush & fill, cleaning & waxing. Plan to do more upgrades in the future. But for now, the fun in driving a Ď68 Camaro again and working on it with my son, it donít get much better than this!
Oh, and the cruise control still works!
