We like Camaros. A lot. And the very best ones are those that aren''t trying too hard. Take this 1968 Camaro SS hardtop, for example. The clean white paint has a classic look that lets the details do the talking and uses a stout small block for power. Nothing ostentatious or complicated, just a sleek F-body with a ton of charisma. For a lot of Camaro fans, the 1968 cars remain the pinnacle of the breed. Sleek and simple, it refined the original look without changing anything major. Covered in Ermine White paint, it looks unassuming, but when you look closer and see the cowl induction hood and black stripe wrapped around the nose, you realize that this isn''t your average grocery-getter. The body is nicely finished, and white''s reputation for hiding flaws just doesn''t apply, because it''s super straight and super shiny. Bad gaps can''t hide on a white car, so they took their time putting this one back together, and with a ducktail out back for balance, it has a subtle high-performance look that works extremely well. I particularly like the rear view, which isn''t spoiled by stripes or a blacked-out tail panel, so the simple 2-element taillights and bold SS gas cap stand out. Chrome bumpers always look great against white paint, and the car has been fitted with correct ''SS'' and ''350'' badges. Houndstooth upholstery is always a slam-dunk in early Camaros, and the low-back buckets have a smooth, sleek look that blurs the line between stock and custom. The upholstery is new and looks fantastic, and works with fresh carpets and original-style door panels to make a very inviting passenger compartment. A two-tone black and white leather steering wheel looks exactly right with the houndstooth and telegraphs the front wheels'' activities directly to your palms (this is a manual steering car, so it definitely helps). Factory gauges are augmented with a quartet of accessory gauges on the center console which are obviously an homage to the originals, and nothing shifts automatic transmissions better than GM''s horseshoe shifter. A block-off plate for the radio reveals this car''s true intentions (hint: it''s not a grocery-getter), and the trunk is finished only with a reproduction mat. There''s a stout small block under the hood, built to be powerful yet reliable. It''s not a numbers-matching piece, so they were free to dress it up with an Edelbrock intake and slick satin black air cleaner and valve covers without hurting its value. The Chevy Orange block underneath glows brightly, but the rest of the engine bay is pretty much the way it would have been back in ''68. Long-tube ceramic-coated headers feed a custom Flowmaster exhaust system, so it has that small block cackle that you''ve loved for years, and the TH350 3-speed automatic transmission shifts so quickly that you''ll forget all about using a clutch. The chassis is tidy and protected by a light dusting of undercoating that isn''t hiding anything, and with a 10-bolt rear end, you know you''re not in danger of breaking anything on the street. Boyd Coddington''s take on the classic Torque Thrust wheel fills the wheel arches and they carry 205/60/15 front and 235/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials. It''s easy to like this car for a lot of reasons: clean, fast, and comfortable. For a car that keeps a low profile, it''s awfully hard to resist. Call today!
