Stock #219HOU
Up for sale in the Houston showroom is one bad Camaro, the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro Rally Sport Tribute. Before any official announcement, reports began running during April 1965 within the automotive press that Chevrolet was preparing a competitor to the Ford Mustang, code-named Panther. The Camaro was first shown at a press preview in Detroit, Michigan, on September 12, 1966, and then later in Los Angeles, California, on September 19, 1966. Public introduction of the new model was on September 26, 1966. The Camaro officially went on sale in dealerships on September 29, 1966, for 1967. Concerned with the runaway success of the Ford Mustang, Chevrolet executives realized that their compact sporty car, the Corvair, would not be able to generate the sales volume of the Mustang due to its rear-engine design, as well as declining sales, partly due to the negative publicity from Ralph Nader's book, Unsafe at Any Speed. Therefore, the Camaro was touted as having the same conventional rear-drive, front-engine configuration as the Mustang and Chevy II Nova. In addition, the Camaro was designed to fit a variety of power plants in the engine bay. Normally these car would have came with a 327ci V8 or a 396ci V8 or the array of other engines Chevy provided, the restoration went a different route with the powerplant of this Camaro for sale. A professionally built, balanced and blue printed 496 cubic inch fire breathing big block was put in place. And with almost 1000HP, this Camaro for sale is sure to haul the mail. Backing the beast is a fully built Turbo Hydramatic 400 3 speed automatic transmission. The rear end went under the same build and the 12 bolt casing was packed with Moser internals so the power gets the ground and no worries about breaking an axel when you dead hook! Big Wilwood 4 wheel disk brakes helps whoa the monster Camaro down from high speeds and leather interior keeps you comfy during those spirited driving trips.
