RS SS Camaro Tribute
Aggressive and Clean 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Tribute
The first-generation Chevrolet Camaro appeared in Chevrolet dealerships in September 1966. The following year the 1967 model appeared on a brand-new rear-wheel drive GM F-body platform and was available as a 2-door, 2+2 seat, hardtop, no "B" or center pillar, or convertible with a choice of six-cylinder and V8 power plants. The first-generation Camaro was built through the 1969 model year.
The Camaro's standard drive train was either a 230 cu in straight-6 engine rated at 140 hp or a 327 cu in 307 cu in later in 1969 V8 engine, with a standard three-speed manual transmission. There were 8 (in 1967), 10 (in 1968), and 12 (in 1969) different engines available in 1967-1969 Camaro.
Options & Features
There were a lot of options available all three years, including two main packages.
We have a 1968 Camaro here at Skyway that incorporates both of those packages. The Camaro may not have been born with them, but they do add a lot of style to the package.
The RS was an appearance package that included hidden headlights, revised taillights with back-up lights under the rear bumper, RS badging, and exterior bright trim. It was available on any model.
The SS performance package consisted of a 350 or 396 cu in V8 engine and chassis upgrades for better handling and to deal with the additional power. The SS featured non-functional air inlets on the hood, special striping, and SS badging.
This one has a modified 350 with ceramic headers, Holley carb, modified ignition and distributor air conditioning, chrome accessories, dual exhaust, and much more.
The rear suspension has been modified also with traction bars and the shock absorber mounting was staggered to resolve wheel hop issues, and higher performance leaf rear springs instead of single-leaf units.
The interior has been upgraded with hi-back custom Red/Black Pro-Car bucket seats, performance gauges, Pioneer Audio unit, custom shifter, new carpet, and more.
This Camaro rides on polished American Racing 5-spoke mag wheels, and wide HTRZ performance tires. It has the right stance and look!
And you can have the right look, too, if you come buy this 1968 Camaro SS RS Tribute we have at Skyway Classics. It has all the basics from the past with performance and appearance mods added to it to become a true street performer today.
