As soon as the Camaro was released in the fall of 1966, avid motor sportsmen started to look for ways to compete with this hot new entry. Like the Mustang, Camaro was a sub-compact that could be all things to all people. A single lady could get a sporty image with the Camaro, even in the base inline six. Camaro’s body was styled to represent speed, and it was an immediate sensation. There were several trim packages and a number of performance upgrades. But Chevrolet wanted to see their new compact sports car do something great and Camaro’s team was not going to sit still until they had a winner. One of the hottest segments of motorsports was the SCCA’s new Trans-Am Series, and Camaro’s engineering wizard Vincent Piggins developed just the engine to go racing. With a displacement limit of just over 305 cubic-inches, a special 302 V-8 was developed using many off-the shelf parts. Using the 283 cubic-inch small block as the start, the 3” bore worked in perfect unison with the 4” stroke provided in the 327. Add a long list of other performance enhancements, and a powerhouse was achieved. Officially and conservatively rated at 290 horses, and designated accessory group Z28, it was off to the races. Backed by Roger Penske, Mark Donohue campaigned the Z28 to multiple wins in 1967, taking home the SCCA championship in both 1968 and 1969. Much more than a looker, it was a cooker too!

This outstanding 1968 Camaro Z28 is unique in that it is one of fewer than 300 produced with the Rally Sport option. While the Z28 was a force to reckon with, RS made it even better. Standard RS equipment started with the Hide-Away headlights and sinister looking black-out grille, bumper guards up front, Rally wheels, dual outside rearview mirrors, D80 spoilers and a stripe decal kit. Interior appointments consisted of the full gauge package including an in-dash clock-tachometer set-up, base AM radio, and the deluxe simulated wooden steering wheel. Rounding out the RS package were performance enhancers such as stainless-steel exhaust, the F41 off-road suspension, and front disc brakes.

Featuring superior workmanship on the body with excellent panel fit, the original Tuxedo Black color shows off the smoothness of the panels and is nicely accented by white stripes. The Z28 is raring to go as you sit in those comfortable basic black vinyl bucket seats, check out the full assortment of gauges continue with that look that means business, right down to the side-to-side black carpeting. This car has been mechanically sorted out with a fine-tooth comb and, from what our consignor says, the factory specs for the numbers matching engine are maybe a bit conservative. Over $120,000 has been invested into the restoration of this fantastic machine. Since its completion, this Camaro has been used sparingly and always stored and maintained in a climate-controlled atmosphere. Within the last 50 miles of operation, our consignor had a thorough and complete mechanical check-up performed on the car at which time it was tuned for maximum performance with special attention paid to the four-speed transmission and rear differential, as well as a complete diagnosis for the brake system.

Born with a need for speed, proven as a champion in SCCA competition, and cherished by those who appreciated the ultimate on motoring, the first-generation Camaro Z28s have truly earned their legendary status. This example is ready to let you experience that legend in real life.
