New Interior and More! 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Convertible

Disclosure: This site may receive compensation from some link clicks and purchases.

When it comes time to downsize, the hardest part may often be parting with vintage automobiles. That’s the situation facing the seller of this 1968 Chevy Camaro Convertible. It looks in great shape and has quite a few new parts. At first glance, you might think it’s an SS, but no mention is made of that. So, it may need nothing more than a new home and the chance to become part of another family.

The Camaro was in its second year when this one was built. Chevrolet rolled out the Camaro in 1967 to battle the Ford Mustang in the new “pony car” market. Sales increased to 235,000 copies (from 221,000) in 1968, and 20,400 were convertibles. The 327 cubic inch V8 was a popular choice by going into nearly 27,000 Camaros that year. We don’t know if this one is original, and the seller also indicates that the Chevy has a 396 engine, but that may be a listing error.

No VIN or cowl tag information is provided, so verifying authenticity isn’t possible. The bright yellow paint looks quite nice, and you likely wouldn’t lose this drop-top in the parking lot. We wonder if there’s been a color change, but the black stripes and convertible top contrast it quite well. If you’ll note, the engine block has been painted to match the car. The top has been replaced, as have the upholstery and door panels.

We’re told there’s a 4-speed manual to go with the 327, but we don’t know if it’s an M20, M21, or M22, the three choices offered when new (the “wide-range” M20 was most commonly ordered at 35,000 copies). The odometer reads 35,000 miles, which means it has either been driven little over the years or the tracker has turned over. Located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin, this beauty is available here on eBay, where $21,000 is the latest bid. Will you be the next to make an offer?

      Let’s not forget about the fuel cap…and do you suppose the Camaro in front of it is a fraudulent SS as well?

      I agree with you. Just about every early Camaro has Z stripes.

        My friend’s 1st gen RS not only has no stripes, it don’t even have a v8 or tinted glass, tho it has heavy front & rear bumper guards(dumb). & the gas tank is original & has never been cleaned out!, & the original gas sender & gage works too! Over 300k miles.

    “…at first glance you might think it’s an SS”…why?…because of the gas cap??

    It’s easier to except what a car is if you know what it was. More information would be helpful given the seller provided no cowl tag or vin info Still this is a good looking Camaro but if I was interested I’d need just a little more information to make a fair bid.l don’t understand why sellers want to advertise their cars with so little information about the car. Makes you suspect they may be hiding something.

    Neither the cowl or VIN will identify the car as a Z28, SS or what size engine it has, only whether it’s a 6 or V8.

        Yes Al, it’s the same for 69’s. I have a 69SS and the only way to prove it is if you have the build sheet or window sticker.

    Minor thing, but it is missing both front fender to core support braces… they are cheap, makes you wonder what else might be wrong. I’d like to know the original color… the yellow on the car just doesn’t work in my opinion. Might be a decent car, but not the best writeup or photo’s. You would think that since there is another Camaro in the driveway, there would be more information provided.
