L30/M20: 1968 Chevrolet Camaro

1968 Chevrolet Camaro L30

When most people think of high-performance Camaros, they think about the SS and Z28 variants. But, there was another… The L30 327 may not of had the power of the 350, but when paired with the M20 4-speed, a respectable performer was created. That transmission option meant that it came with some other nice upgrades which you can read more about here on CRG. Anway, this Camaro is a L30/M20 and has been in storage for over 20 years. It’s now been pulled out and could use some attention. The car is located in Pen Argyl, Pennsylvania and is listed here on eBay without a reserve!

    Cool car in reasonably good condition and still has some originality. Whoever takes on the restoration will appreciate all the parts still being there. Trunk and fender rust seem to be the most severe areas, but until paint is stripped you never know how solid things are. All parts being available through reproduction companies makes this a straight forward restoration. No buying parts cars for the pieces you need, or digging in scrap piles at swap meets. A blue on blue 1968 Camaro will never fall out of favor and will hold or increase in value over time.

    It needs a fair amount of work. It could be a nice car again. One has to respect the seller for posting pics of the problem areas.

    see sellers regret – not a numbers matching engine. at least they have offered to retract bids, it is the right thing to do.

    would still be a fun car.

    makes me wonder if the 326 firebird with a manual had similar hp and torque #ers?

    If it doesn’t go much above $10,500 it’s a decent deal, why becuase IMO there most likely is more rust hidden then what you see.

    Way over priced. It’s an 8k car tops. The rust repair and repaint alone is going to set you back 10-12k. Add in everything else and you’re looking at 15-20k to restore this one.

    After all that you’ll have a really nice 25k car.

    I enjoy restoring these older cars.. Just the paint alone for my current Mach 1 project has gone over $400 for urethane not to mention sandpaper, seam sealer and welding wire for the mig. When I get tired or overloaded with work, I put the tools down, pop open a frosty and go in the house.

    So, what I’m saying is that most car guys don’t have the skills or equipment to restore their prize possessions and have to farm out the project.. That adds a lot of expense and lowers the profit when it comes time to sell. I’m also wondering if any of us Boomers will be around in later years with a market willing to buy our cars.. The newer generations don’t seem interested in them much.. They seem to prefer the factory made newer cars that they can’t work on.. IMHO
