1968 Camaro for Sale
1968 Used Camaros
In only it’s second year of production Chevrolet sensed they had a winner in the new Camaro and didn’t change much during the first generation. 1968 saw mostly minor refinements and improvements to an already very popular package. Both the front grille and rear tail lights were redesigned for 1968. Trim packages continued and for the first time a cloth interior option was available. This “hounds tooth” pattern would soon become a trademark of the classic Camaro. The RS and SS packages continued from the previous year. Camaro SS had a different hood depending on the engine size; the 350 SS got thinner chrome inserts whereas the 396 SS hood featured larger inserts that simulated carburetor stacks.
1968 Classic Camaro History
Choosing from the vast list of options was one of the big draws to buying a new Camaro. Chevrolet encouraged mixing and matching to create your own unique muscle car. On the same car you could combine the SS and RS packages, convertible, 396 engine and top it all off with a Special Interior (RPO Z23) or Custom Interior (RPO Z87). And then you could pick from the laundry list of individual options like tilt steering, center console, speed control and more.
For 1968 five more paint colors were available, bringing the total up to an impressive 19 choices. The convertible body style again proved to be a fairly popular choice making up almost 10% of 1968 production.
