We proudly offer this Well Built 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Tribute in Dusk Blue over a Black bucket-seat interior. The previous owner had approximately $55,000 invested in this car and its build.
Clements Racing Engines Inc. in Spartanburg, SC built the entire engine from the block up and broke it in on their engine dyno. This small block Chevy engine was bored to 400 ci and features ported and polished aluminum heads, dual plane Edelbrock intake manifold, Holley HP 7150 carb, Eagle forged crank, JE forged pistons and rods, custom grind cam, custom valve covers, aluminum timing chain cover, and balanced and blueprinted. Ignition is managed through an MSD ignition box, MSD distributor, and MSD wires. Fuel is fed from a replaced fuel tank, fuel cap, and fuel lines. Exhaust is routed through Hedman Hedders ceramic coated headers, 3 inch exhaust with H-pipe, and dual Flowmaster mufflers. The engine was dyno’ed at 525 hp and 576 lb-ft of torque at the crank.
Power is routed through a Richmond 5-speed manual transmission to a heavy duty, custom built ,10-bolt, 8.5 inch, 3.55 Posi rear end. Brand new BF Goodrich Radial T/As help hook the power to the pavement. Competition Engineering Slide-A-Link traction bars control wheel hop and Global West subframe connectors help control chassis flex.
The 6-year restoration of this car was completed last year. This included stripping everything out of the car and sand blasting the entire frame and body to bare metal. The car was then painted in the Camaro Dusk Blue color. The steel wheels were also painted in matching Dusk Blue. All front end bushings and body bushings were replaced along with new grill parts, smoked glass, brake lines and booster, bumpers, chrome window trim, and side mirrors.
The interior was treated to new seat covers, carpet, headliner, heater core, interior trim pieces, floor mats, wiring, and steering wheel.
This car starts, runs, drives, and stops very strong. The previous owner took his time to build his personal dream car into this beautiful machine (with a slight sleeper look). It was important to him to keep with originality and stay true to the era while also upgrading the engine and drivetrain to enhance the overall experience. Mission accomplished!
