Photo of 1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe With Supercharger
1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS Coupe Hot Rod
This Camaro originally came With a V8
Not sure on the size, and
A manual transmission
Not sure what type,
The original Color was British Racing Green with white Stripes,
It is currently Blue
It was built in late 1968 in the Norwood, Ohio Plant.
The car is number 15 out of 137, 958 built in that year.
I found the car online in 2006 after my mother passed away and
decided to buy it.
In my younger days I always had hot rods but
with getting married and having kids
I had to put the cars on the back burner for a while.
I bought the car out of North Carolina.
It had a 1975 454 Truck Motor in it
With a Single 4 barrel carburator.
I had it dyno tested and
found that it only had 180HP and 175lbs of torque
at the rear wheels
I was not very happy with the performance.
So being a car guy
I decided to add a few new parts
Edelbrock Performance Heads,
New Camshaft, Roller Rockers,
And an 800 Holly carburator.
After doing the parts swap which took a few days
I had it dynoed again and it was now making
425hp and 450lbs of torque at the rear wheels
but something went wrong on the dyno.
It spun a rod bearing.
I now had to rebuild the lower end
I had it bored out .60 over
Which makes it a 468cid
It has 9.5 to 1 compression.
I installed a Supercharger that makes 5 psi of boost
that raises the compression to 12 .5 to 1
Adding 40% more Horse Power and still runs on pump gas.
It has 630HP at 5300 rpm and
660lb ft of Torque at 4100 rpm
Now I am happy.
It has a 12 bolt posi rear end
With 3.73 Gears,
Muncie M22 Rock Crusher Manual Transmission,
830 Holly dual feed, double pumper carburator
Powder Coated Blue and Chrome,
Frame Connectors,
Electric exhaust cutouts,
Drag Radials.
I also changed the instrument cluster with updated gauges.
I have replaced the stock wheels and tires
With polished aluminum Torque Thrust 15x8 Rims,
I have also added a New Chrome power brake booster,
Master Cylinder,
valve covers, headers,
And had some Engine Parts Chromed.
I Installed and Painted the New Hood
With an opening to accommodate the supercharger
As I did not want to hack up the stock SS hood.
I did keep the stock SS hood.
The rear floor boards have been replaced and
The interior has had sound proofing added,
Along with new carpet.
The trunk has also been finished out.
This Camaro is still a work in progress
As we all know, you are never done working on a hot rod.
I repainted the car and
Iit had some cancer popping on it
So I fixed the rust.
This car has never been to the strip and
Probably will never go
It will need to have a cage installed and
I am not putting one in.
I enjoy restoring old cars.
Cash is King.
