1968 Chevrolet Camaro Z/28 – The Real Deal

Are you looking for a collector vehicle that will garner attention and admiration from all who see it? Are you a Camaro enthusiast searching for your Holy Grail car? Stop searching – we found it for you, and it’s right here in our showroom at Blue Marlin Motors USA!

This is an original, documented, one owner 1968 Camaro Z/28. How do we know it’s one owner, you ask? The original Protect-o-Plate warranty card and book are still with this car.

The VIN of this rare Camaro is 124378N409412.

The block casting number is 3914678, which authenticates the engine block as one belonging to a 302 cubic inch 290 horsepower V8 intended for a 1968 Camaro Z/28. The engine deck, as you can see in the photos, is stamped with a partial VIN stamp that reads 18N409412, verifying that this DZ 302 engine belongs in this particular 1968 Camaro Z/28.

The Muncie M21 4-speed manual transmission mated to the engine is also original to the car. Its assembly date is P8C21, it sports a “660” case, and again the partial VIN of 18N409142 is stamped into the case as well. The 12-bolt posi-traction rear end has original 4.10 gears and an assembly date code of BV0321G, a casting date of B298, and a housing number of 860NF. It, too, is original to the car.

What really sets this car apart from the pack, aside from the fact that it’s only got 22,220 original miles, is its paint. The paint code was a special order, as evidenced by the “1001HA” code on the window sticker, as well as the “- -“designation for paint on the car’s original trim tag. This special order car was ordered and painted in a special hue called “Tangerine orange.” In addition to that, it is a real factory stripe delete car, and the paint on this car is original.

This car has been certified by Jerry MacNeish of Camaro Hi-Performance, INC – known worldwide as the authority on the 1967-1969 Camaro Z/28. It is a true survivor Camaro. The only changes from the day this car left the factory during the first week of April 1968 are minor. There is a Hurst shifter in between the bucket seats, and the smog pump, long known as a failure item and a concern on these cars, was removed sometime early in its life. Everything else is date-code correct for the car, making this quite possibly the most original Z/28 Camaro you will ever see.

A complete list of the codes will be below this description for your review.

If you want to add this piece of history to your collection, come see it in person here in our showroom. Blue Marlin Motors is close to Palm Beach International airport, and we’ll be happy to help you make arrangements to see the car from anywhere in the world.

Blue Marlin Motors can also assist you in finding financing for this or any other of our classic and collector cars in inventory. With rates as low as 2.5% from some of our favorite credit unions, and classic cars appreciating on average about 6% per year, financing a classic car is just money in the bank! Give us a call for more details!

If a SS got this option, what would the spare tire be?

It has to match the other 4 road wheels.

Thanks, sorry I wasn't more clear. I'm sure the spare would be a 15" if that's what you mean by "match", but would it be a regular or rally rim. In otherwords, did P28 include 5 rally rims & 5 RWL tires or would it have been a 15" regular rim whitewall spare?

I thought the orange from the factory was from the GM truck fleet line .?.  It's that what Dana used?
Thanks for the lead- it lead to finding this link:

From what i find, that color was not available for other Chevy models that year? I wonder where it came from and why. Also, the eBay car is a Norwood, and mine is LOS built 8 months apart.

Hmm, maybe it was one of these. Same trim tag.

7  Camaro Research Group Discussion / Restoration / Foams vs Stitching on: February 06, 2013, 09:10:39 PM
I've got PUI 68 Deluxe Houndstooth seatcovers and ACI Deluxe Foams. At the base of the seatback foam the distance across is 12 inches for the channel that the hogrings go in to hold the seatcover tails. The base of the back of the seatcover tails that the rings attach to are 11 inches across. Which is correct the 12 inches for the foam or the 11 inches for the seat tails?

After a week delay, I'm finally here.

What's the possibility that Camaro was a Z28?  With the special order paint, Muncie, disk brakes, etc..   it was more than likely a *special model* of some kind.    With that paint code, you could paint the car ANY COLOR you want, and it would be *correct* for judging purposes..  Smiley

Are you going to restore it?  a few body panels..  it would be good as new.  Smiley

I thought I'd try to buff it out first. Smiley   Yes, at one point I think it was a very cool car.  I am going to try to identify what the "special" paint was.

Excited to be home and looking forward to driving out next week to pick this and 2 other subframes up.

That Cutlass Convertible would be a nice car to restore for an Olds enthusiast.    That car would have come with a 215 ci ALUMINIUM V8 engine with 185 hp (4 bbl).  Unless I'm mistaken, you could also get either a supercharged or turbo charged version of that engine as an option?

Agreed on the COOL car factor. Not hooked in to the Olds scene though. If it's still there, I'll reprt back.

I'm in the big sandbox right now, I return Stateside in Dec. I pick it up in Jan, any details of interest anyone want confirmed?

I know it seems crazy but I bought it. I envision it as a Hugger Orange 68 RS Z/28. I think most of it will just buff out.
