Suisse Imported 1968 Convertible
« on: September 14, 2019, 01:15:04 PM »
A nice original Camaro Convertible from 1968.
An import vehicle, but not by GM Suisse, but parallel import.
These often had a sticker instead of the "General Motors Suisse S.A. Bienne" in the engine compartment.
The sticker could be part orange / white, partly black / white.

VIN: 124678N426627
Engine: 327-Cui. 3-Speed THM-350, 18N426627 V0423EN
Body By Fisher:
04D
ST 68-12467 NOR 126817 BODY
TR 714 F2 PAINT

Rare. L-30 275 Hp with 3 speed auto. Part of TH350 transmission test fleet. Surprised they shipped a test unit out of the country.

Is it metallic red or Island Teal?

If by "they" you mean Chevrolet, they probably didn't. Most likely it was owned by someone in the states that moved overseas and took their car with them.
