1968 Chevy Camaro RS Might Be The Most Documented Of Its Kind

  1968 Chevy Camaro RS Might Be The Most Documented Of Its Kind This Camaro’s life has been well documented. Finished in Grotto Blue, Paint code Dd, over a Bright Blue vinyl interior, is this 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS coupe comes with all of its paperwork. It has been masterfully restored to show-quality standards and while it is clear that the car has been well taken care of, it is also apparent that it has been driven and enjoyed by its family for decades. © Provided by Motorious Under the hood of this 1968 Chevy Camaro RS is a 327-cid V8 paired with two-speed automatic transmission.

To those in the know, this is far more than just a car.

After the 1980 season, the International Race of Champions or IROC series took a break from competition until 1984. Collaborating with Chevrolet, the series commemorated its return using the redesigned Camaro Z/28, which was called the IROC-Z. Hailed by many as a return to form for Chevrolet muscle cars, the IROC-Z is being celebrated today. That means values on clean examples like this one are on the rise, so if you’re looking for an affordable vehicle that could appreciate significantly over the coming years, you might want to take a close look at this third-gen Camaro.

9 tragically flawed GM vehicles whose heroic fixes came too late

  9 tragically flawed GM vehicles whose heroic fixes came too late Decades upon decades passed when General Motors could do no wrong, and the products rolling off its assembly line were proof positive of its business model’s supremacy.

One thing that’s evident from the photos is that this red IROC-Z has been well cared for, instead of being left to rot, which is what happened to far too many. The paint has a shine that lets it show well, while the iconic IROC-Z graphics on the side are intact. Zero curb rash is visible on those five-spoke wheels, plus the rest of the exterior trim pieces show no sign of sun fading or deterioration, which quite frankly is remarkable.

It’s pretty much the same story for the gray cloth interior. While not perfect, with slight signs of wear on the steering wheel, center console, and a few other areas, it’s still been remarkably maintained, especially with all the factory controls. This car still has the AM/FM cassette stereo, so you can pop in your old Twisted Sister tape and jam out, just like old times. The backseat appears to be barely used, not that they saw a lot of action back in the day.

While it might not be impressive by today’s performance standards, the 5.7-liter V8 gives this IROC-Z some decent get-up-and-go. For the 1980s it was a force to be reckoned with, making this American muscle car one many people remember fondly.

Chevy’s most expensive, most powerful crate engine gets a gearbox to match .
We were excited to hear that Chevrolet Performance will soon be offering a 1000+ horsepower big-block V-8 crate engine that runs on good ol’ pump gasoline. The 632-cubic-inch street engine won’t be available until early next year, but one dealer has already listed an MSRP of $37,758.72. That’s more than the MSRP of an entire […] The post Chevy’s most expensive, most powerful crate engine gets a gearbox to match appeared first on Hagerty Media. Looking to purchase a car?
