1968 Chevrolet Camaro
Super Sport SS-396
2-Door Hardtop

Model Year History Overview:

The first Camaro was in 1967 and was an immediate hit.  Production topped 220,000 cars the first year, followed by 235,115 for ’68, and 243,100 for ’69.  Camaro was introduced to replace the fading Corvair, and mainly to compete with the incredibly successful Mustang in the burgeoning “ponycar” market.

The Camaro was more than a new Chevrolet: it was a new concept.  Mustang had pointed the way.  Some 81 factory options and 41 dealer installed accessories were offered so the buyer could tailor the car to taste and budget.  The Camaro wasn’t significantly changed in ‘68 or ‘69

This car was restored in 2003 with new fenders, quarter panels, grille, upholstery, etc.  The original engine was overhauled which makes it a true 1968 SS Camaro.  It also has the original California “Black Plate” license plates which means it was sold there and stayed there its entire life. The last California “Black Plate” was issued in 1969.
