Guys - I am a novice looking to purchase a 68 camaro hardtop. I know a little about cars but not enough to know enough about the worth of a vehicle and what details are important to look for in a collectible car.

Here is some information on the vehicle I am looking at, if you guys could help me with the worth and any things that are really good or bad about the items listed on the car I would forever be in your debt.

Well, I have no idea how much something like that is worth in today's market.  It looks like it has been customized a little, so I would stay away from terms like restored.  Most of the stuff done on this site is for original type cars, not all, but most.  Team Camaro has a "What's it worth?" topic if you don't get much response here.

That's much more of a restomod style, not restored. Looks to be pretty detailed, but I can't hazard a value. What's the asking price?

I thought I'd seen this car.  This car was on ebay item # 160396520376, only had one bid for $27,500.  That's a pretty high first bid. Didn't meet the reserve.  Nice car, but  I agree, it's just another nice custom camaro.  Hadn't been on ebay for a gm couple of days...how about the 68 RS Z/28 w/ GM headers for $159,000... J.M. certified ?  Just like mine except for vinyl top, gauges and of course headers.

No doubt the seller want's big money for this car. It's nice, even if modified.

My 68 RS/SS 350 4spd, is similar in that the engine is pushing 400hp, and I have 17" AR SS wheels on it, but all the rest is stock.

At first glance you should take notice that it has the standard interior but the seats are not correct. The gauges have been changed (maybe for the better, my stock gauges are flakey at best), There are no emblems on the exterior; Camaro, SS, or 396. The car has the window mouldings but no roof drip rail moulding or lower body moulding and fender well moulidings. I thought those all came in a one package? One big item is the missing SS hood. Although the hood on it is nice, it's wrong.

Be careful and check closely. This car may not be a RS/SS. It may be a low end Camaro built to look great which it does.

So ya see it's a matter of taste. The car is nice, just not correct for the pure stock guys.

I would guess $20K maybe up to $25K if the underside is real good.
