1968 Chevrolet Camaro

1968 Chevrolet Camaro

Rebuilt over several years by Grassroots Motorsports Associate Publisher Steve Chryssos, this Camaro is a well rounded example of American performance. There is not a lot of 1968 Camaro left. In its current form, the car features an aftermarket tubular front subframe with 1987 Corvette lower control arms and uprights along with Afco upper control arms. Rack and pinion steering from a Ford Fairmont is combined with a late model GM power steering pump. The rear leaf springs have been replaced with a complete torque arm kit from Jakes Rod Shop that locates a ford 9" rear end from Moser Engineering. The original uni-body structure is reinforced with a 10 point roll cage and subframe connectors. The car has evolved through more than 25 years of ownership into a multi-purpose machine capable of autocross, drag racing, track days and regular street use.
