1968 Chevrolet Camaro

Gateway Classic Cars Houston showroom is excited to offer this nasty supercharged Pro Touring 1968 Chevrolet Camaro for sale. Painted a classic black with dark silver metallic stripes that appear to change colors depending on the lighting angle (ranging from gray, to dark silver, to a golden hue), this '68 Camaro is unlike most that you'll find. This Camaro was purpose-built to run the 2013 Hot Rod Power Tour. Its owner started with building it to run the Power Tour, and specifically wanted a massive blower sticking out of the hood. Don Hampton custom built the polished GMC 8-71 Roots-style blower for the owner's stated engine specs. Beginning with a Dart "M" block with a standard 454 CID bore, it was topped with ported and polished Dart "Big Chief" heads with .440 intake and .424 exhaust valves. A custom set of Keith Black 8.2:1 forged pistons and a Lunati custom-ground blower cam with 110-degree lobe separation move the highly compressed air through this big mill. Twin Holley 950 CFM carbs top the huge blower, and custom headers scavenge the exhaust gases into the Borla dual exhaust with its menacing quad tip tail pipes. This thing just sounds completely wicked, and it runs like a scalded cat. Spark is enhanced by an MSD 6BTM (with cockpit-mounted boost retard controller) and delivered through a set of gigantic Moroso spark plug wires. The massive 454 is kept running cool by a huge BeCool aluminum radiator with its twin electric Spal fans. A March serpentine belt system handles driving the accessories. The purpose-built 4-speed 700R4 automatic transmission, capable of handling up to 1500 horsepower, is equipped with a lockup torque convertor (with a cockpit mounted lockup controller) which provides enhanced drivability for the various segments of the Power Tour's driving challenges. The 700R4 sends power to a Dana 40 rear end, which is equipped with a TruTrac limited slip differential and 4.10:1 gears. With the 700R4, the 4.10:1 ratio is near perfect for getting the hard launches needed in the drag strip segments of the Power Tour, yet still maintaining excellent highway drivability.

Speaking of challenges, the Mickey Thompson M/T Sportsman SR radials at all 4 corners (26x8.00R15LT up front, 31x18.00R15LT in back) are mounted on custom ordered Cragar mags. To meet the builder's custom specs for the rears, he had Cragar build a custom sized set of wheels for the rear. It took Cragar three tries before everything matched up perfectly for the owner's needs. When one peers through the Cragars, they'll see the smooth stopping slotted Strange Engineering rotors and calipers at all 4 corners, which help this car haul down from race speeds safely and quickly.

Since this Pro Touring '68 Camaro was designed for the Power Tour, it needed to be both capable in every driving segment, and it needed to provide excellent comfort for the driver and passenger. Inside, you'll find a custom black interior. With a complete set of AutoMeter ProComp gauges (speedo, tach, oil pressure, water temp, volts, fuel) in the dash behind the tilt steering wheel, knowing what's going on up in the engine bay is never an issue. The custom console is equipped with a boost gauge right up front, cupholders for the passengers, and a storage compartment (that serves to make up for the loss of the glove compartment). A set of high-back Corbeau racing seats and RJS harnesses keep the driver and passenger both comfortable on long drives, as well as solidly anchored in their places. The roll cage adds to the safety of the occupants. The AM/FM/CD/USB Pioneer head unit sends the tunes to a giant Kicker amp that's mounted on the custom speaker enclosure behind the seats. The cold air conditioning further adds to occupant comfort when it's hot outside. This supercharged Pro Touring 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is ready to run its next Power Tour for sure!

Additional features and options on this custom 1968 Chevrolet Camaro for sale include cold Air Conditioning, Aluminum Wheels, AM/FM/CD/USB Radio, Cloth Interior, Kill Switch, Power Brakes, Power Steering, Radial Tires, Seat Belts, and Tilt Steering Wheel.
