1968 Camaro. SS, Z28, or? Any Help Would Be Greatly Appreciated :)
Thank you for taking the time to read over my post! We actually just picked this car up yesterday. It was pad locked to the side of the barn in the back woods of Missouri. It is a fairly interesting car based on what I can tell and what I've pulled from the Cowl Tag but what has me puzzled are a few things. One, the previous owner knew very little about the car. It seems that he was not emotionally tied to the car and it just sat out next to his barn for quite some time. What I have gathered is that it is a four speed car, originally a red car with Deluxe interior. Now what I found to be intriguing is the fact that the Camaro has what appears to be its original 12 bolt rear end underneath it and it is a posi. Unfortunately though, I could not find any numbers on it. The Camaro also has Z28 emblems as well as a flat hood which I know were common for Z28s. What I'd like to find out is, what exactly do I have? I know that with out paperwork, it's anyone's guess but based on what you can see, what would be your best estimate? Does she have some rarity to her or is she just another plain Jane Camaro? Lastly, the bench seat within the car is not original but it does appear to be period correct and it does appear to be built to cater to a four/three speed shifter. I remember years ago seeing one and being told that they were pretty rare but how rare are they? Any and all help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for your time.
the Z/28 has a few distinct clues. 6000 rpm tac, sppedo hole in firewall right side of column, 3/8 fuel line, disc brake, 4spd only, glove box door tire sticker marked E70-15. cowl hood was not an option in 68
