My New 1968 Camaro
This is my first classic car and I am as happy as a kid at Christmas! I recently traded a nice local fella my 2002 Z28 M6 for this car. I have owned a 1995 Firebird Formula and 1985 Monte Carlo SS (w/350 crate motor, 3.73 posi rear, etc.) before this. I have much to learn and hope to lean on ya'll for help.
The car has a 350 with a roughly 0.480 lift cam that sounds amazing! It is backed by a TH350 transmission and a 10-bolt rear (not sure gear ratio or if it is posi). It has single leaf rear springs that are shot, but the owner is giving me a new set of 5 leaf springs, bushings, and shocks. I am also getting the original numbers matching 327 and 2-speed powerglide that were removed (engine was smoking). I figure I will seal those up and keep them for when I sell the car down the road. The car also has LS1 front disc brakes.
It is painted silver (believed to be 69' Z28 Silver, but not sure how to verify) with grey/charcoal stripes and a nice set of chrome 16" Ralley looking wheels. The bumpers, wheel well trim, windshield trim, and door handles are painted which I intend to fix. Car has front seats and center console from a newer Camaro that I also intend to replace with original. Everything works from the gas gauge, to lights, windshield wipers, AC, etc. It even has a CD player with ipod hookup in the glove box wired to two 6x9's in the rear deck.
Well, that's all for now I guess.
