1968 convertible Camaro restoration

 

Camaro restorationThis  50-year old Camaro rolled into the shop with only 31,000 original miles!! Now the miles isn’t the only thing that wowed us, the automatic transmission and factory blue interior is also what struck us. This car was also a “garage queen” with a 327 in it, and after some fine tuning from PBC, this car drove like a champ. This Camaro restoration was definitely one for the books too…

This car was not a complete restoration in itself though. For this Camaro restoration, what we did restore and fix included ALL NEW:

 

  • 15-inch American Racing Rims  with some copper radials
  • Stainless steel 2 1/2 inch exhaust thick wall piping with stainless steel Magnaflow muffler
  • Taillight bezels
  • Emblems
  • Wheel well moldings
  • Side marker lights
  • Door locks
  • Door rubbers
  • and gasket door weather stripping

We also did a complete straightening Bodywork with Long blocking body panels and went through with high-grade urethane primer and de-cromed it. Then we went through with base coat and clear coat. The color for the Camaro is the original GM color, Ermine White.

 

Here Is a quick video when we arrived with the car to Phill’s House

You will see the long blocking procedure and the guide coat, this is how we stick – block the car to get panels straight 

Look how thick the 2.5-inch Stainless steel exhaust is we custom bent a full dual exhaust from the manifolds back and installed stainless steel Magna- Flow Mufflers
