Newbie

Hi, I just recently purchased a 68 Camaro off Craigslist.... its been a whirl wind over the last 2 months, but shes finally running a driving. We still need to give the engine a good look but so far she runs well

68 Camaro 350 4 speed muncie. She has some engine upgrades and some upgrades in the tranny according to the guy I got it from. He bought it from some one who bought it from some one so the details as to whats upgraded and whats not isn't totally clear. She has all new sheet metal up front which is nice and the floors has some work done as well.. We upgraded the drive shaft (out of need because the one it came with was for a AUTO), custom exhaust, and a AAW classic update wire harness kit( still working on getting the kinks worked out). We upgraded to 4 wheel power disc braked W/ 11 inch cross drilled and slotted rotors. New shocks. All new Stainless gas and brake lines.

Welcome, Ralph, to the Club.
Correct year and enjoy the journey.
Auto and manual driveshafts are the same unless a THM400 is installed, then a shorter one is needed and a different trans crossmember is needed.

Interesting.. The one that came with the parts was way to short and the yoke was to big.. who knows... we upgraded to one that could handle more HP and lighter
