The 1968 Chevrolet Camaro is one of the first generation Camaro models. It saw production from the end of 1966 to 1969 and was an instant hit with muscle car collectors in the United States. The Camaro was stylish, powerful, and fun to drive, which is part of the reason why it’s still one of the most popular American sports cars. It had two doors and a 2+2 bucket seat design, and came as a hardtop or convertible. The standard Chevy Camaro was built with a 3.8-liter inline-six engine, but performance upgrades with the SS and Z/28 packages came much larger V8 engines.
All ’68 Camaros came with a standard three-speed manual transmission, but an optional two-speed Powerglide automatic transmission and four-speed manual transmission are also available. Overall, there weren’t many changes between the 1967 and 1968 Camaros. Chevrolet removed the side vent windows and added marker lights on the fender of the 1968 model, and also made the front grille slightly more angular. Other than that, they’re essentially the same car in terms of performance.
