Used 1968 Chevrolet Camaro for sale in Houston, Texas
Now for sale at Gateway Classic Cars is this beautiful unrestored 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS 396 L-89! The authenticity and miles are sworn and notarized by the original owner. The car was purchased brand new at Herb Hallman Chevrolet in Reno. Equipment on this car include the Muncie 4-speed manual transmission, 12 bolt rear end, air injection reactor (smog), Delco AM radio, center console, black vinyl interior, front and rear spoilers, Rallye wheels and redline tires. Finished in the original color “Corvette Bronze” (code 0-0), offered only in 1968. This is the punchy 375hp L89 engine! This rating was extremely conservative, since it was the same motor that made 425 HP in 1965 without any changes. While the L89 option did not bring any more horsepower, it did offer a weight savings of at least 50 pounds. The aluminum heads were exact copies of the high-performance rectangular port heads that the L78s and L72s came equipped with. With some simple carb tuning, tubular exhaust headers and a re-curve on the distributor, these cars could be running mid 13s easily. Because of the high-revving nature of the solid-lifter big-blocks, you couldnt order power steering or air conditioning with any of these engines. This is a very rare car and in original factory condition. The base price of the car back in the day was $2,694 but with these extensive options it totaled $4,172.50. With inflation that equates to about $30,000 in today’s money. Not a lot really when you consider our top of the line Camaro these days is more than double that.
