Hello.  Just wanted to introduce myself and say hi!

I am the proud owner of a '68 RS Camaro.  My grandparents bought the car brand new in late '67 from a dealership in Reading Pa.  My dad then bought the car from them in the early 80's and I've owned the car since the early 90's.  So, I like to call it a single owner car. Smiley

It's a '68 RS, 327/210 hp, Powerglide, Power Steering, Power Brakes, Factory AC, Deluxe interior.  My firewall tag is blank as my grandfather worked for the Chevy dealership and custom ordered the car.  It's Seafrost green with black interior.

Sadly, the car had quite a bit of rust from growing up in eastern PA.  So I've done quite a bit of body work.  The car was also in an accident and rear ended another car on the freeway.  So much of the sheetmetal has been replaced (both rear fenders from rust) one front fender, the hood, and nose pieces are all new.

The car is about 98% through a it's current restoration.  I got burned out of working on it for a couple years.  2 co-workers recently got '67's and are trying to re-energize me. 

I'm looking forward to learning even more about Camaros, and trying to help others as much as possible.  The car and I currently reside in Nor-Cal.

Cheers!

My firewall tag is blank as my grandfather worked for the Chevy dealership and custom ordered the car.  It's Seafrost green with black interior.

The cowl tag is not blank, everything is there.  "- -" denotes special paint, but I don't know why it's stamped like that because Seafrost Green was an available Camaro color.  It should have been stamped P P.  Did your grandparents wait to the last minute to pick a color?

That wouldn't cause it to be special paint.
Maybe white stripes on it instead of black?

Nope, It has a black rallye stripe.  It is black below the rocker moldings. 

I was always under the impression that Seafrost was a '67 color, and it was blank because it wasn't a stock '68 color.  I've since come to the conclusion that that's not true.

Were '68s all one color?  Is my lower rocker trim the potential cause?

Nope, Seafrost Green was not one of 1968 body sill color exceptions per CRG...  http://www.camaros.org/exterior.shtml#BlackoutPaint

I'm not sure there is an exception color list to be found for 1968 as my original ZZ (British Green) has black rockers.

Interesting.  Steve, is your car LOS or NOR?

Which stripe is that? Original pics confirm the stripe color?
