The metallic dark green 1968 Camaro has undergone extensive visual and performance modifications, far from its stock days. Despite a recent auction where the owner, a Massachusetts-based dealer, turned down the highest bid of $97,500, the seller did reach out to the top bidder afterward, indicating they were close to the reserve price.

That $97,500 bid wasn’t enough to take this Camaro home, so keep that in mind. Visually, this ‘68 Camaro sports a metallic green color with white stripes, new sheet metal parts (hood, fenders, doors, bumpers, door handles, stainless trim, lower moldings, taillight bezels, and lenses), a white vinyl roof, an RS-style front end, sequential taillights, and 18” US Mag Rambler wheels with Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires.

This Camaro also features QA1 adjustable coilovers, leaf springs, nine-way adjustable shocks, power steering, and four-wheel disc brakes with 11.1” slotted rotors. Inside, it boasts black vinyl seats with houndstooth inserts, an American Powertrain shifter, new floor mats, a Custom Aerosound stereo with Bluetooth, a three-spoke Billet Specialties steering wheel, and Dakota Digital instrumentation. The Holley Sniper EFI controller is placed below the center stack.

Under the hood, there’s a GM Performance ZZ502 V8 crate engine with CVF billet pulleys, ICT brackets, a custom water pump, a custom aluminum radiator with dual electric fans, Flowmaster tubular exhaust headers, and the Holley Sniper fuel injection system. This Camaro delivers 508 horsepower to its rear wheels through an American Powertrain T56 six-speed manual gearbox, making it a straight-line beast on paper.
