This Ermine White 1968 Camaro coupe has impressed us all here at Streetside Classics. It's often easy to overlook a white car, and it's only once you get up close you start to see just how nice this one really is. The bodywork is awfully close to being ready for show, with excellent prep, a deep shine, and those painted on SS stripes that look great against the white paint. It was carefully assembled, too, with good gaps and alignment throughout. That hood is off of a 1968 SS396, which is easy to spot thanks to the chrome inserts that look like velocity stacks, and the rear spoiler is a great option that always looks appropriate. Chrome is a combination of good original pieces and restored or replacement parts, adding a little sparkle to the car's clean shape. A blacked-out SS grille and 350 badges strongly suggest that this is a real SS, but with the way Chevy was doing their cowl tags, there's just no way to know for sure. The black vinyl top uses the correct material, and has been professionally installed, and we can't find any evidence of rust underneath-this is a very clean car. The black vinyl interior is every bit as nice as the exterior, and the bucket seats are still firm and supportive. Many enthusiasts favor the more interesting seat pattern of the '68s, which shows more detailing than later designs. The center console features a quartet of auxiliary gauges with a new "sawtooth" design that angles them towards the driver. Unlike 1967, however, there was no room for a clock, so the clock was relocated to the tachometer face, creating the tic-toc-tach found in this car. This upscale car also includes factory A/C, which is easy to spot due to the round vents on either end which were included only on air conditioned cars. For entertainment, there's an aftermarket AM/FM/cassette stereo in the factory location, but no original Camaro dashboards were harmed in its installation. Things like the carpets, headliner, and door panels are in excellent condition as well, having been replaced in the past several years. The engine is a sweet-running 350 with several aftermarket upgrades to add a little extra horsepower. Intake duties are managed by a Holley carburetor with an electric choke sitting atop an Edelbrock intake, while the exhaust is dumped by a set of Hedman long-tube headers. Chrome valve covers match the air cleaner, which wears an original-style Turbo Fire decal. You'll note that the A/C system has been upgraded to R134a for easy, inexpensive maintenance and it blows ice cold inside. A TH350 3-speed automatic, combined with power brakes and steering make it a pleasure to drive. Super-clean floors and subframes eliminate worries about corrosion and structural damage, and it's pretty clear that this car has never been rusty. The dual exhaust system uses a proper transverse muffler just ahead of a new gas tank, and the tips dump inboard of the rear wheels just like the factory did it. And just to keep the illusion alive, 17-inch Torque Thrust wheels in satin chrome wearing staggered 225/45/17 front and 245/45/17 rear performance radials give it a period look. So if you're looking for an incredibly clean early Camaro that you can show with confidence this summer, look no further. While some may think white is too subtle for a performance car, the black and white combination on this one is sophisticated and highly desirable. A lot of money went into the restoration and it shows, both inside and out. Everything works as it should, and with the A/C, this is a car that you can take anywhere. Fully sorted, fun to drive, and loaded with options, this Camaro won't last long, so call today!
