Default 1968 L78 SS Camaro garage find

The original owner of the L78 ordered it new from Prout Chevrolet. He owned a motor home and towed it when he went camping. The car is all original down to the exhaust and Muncie shifter. The only things that are missing is the original rally rims and smog. That being said, the car has sat since the early 80ís and needs a complete restoration.

The interior is tired, but all there.

The car still retains its original distributor, alternator, carb, exhaust manifolds/exhaust, coil, clutch fan, radiator with the tag and Muncie shifter.

With fresh gas, new plugs and wires, the car started right up!

It may be available… It’s a great car, but it needs a lot of love...
