In 1968, Chevrolet touted the Camaro SS as the muscle car for the fun crowd. The sales literature stated that it was a husky performer and looks it. Equipped with a big engine, special equipment features, and a ramped-up suspension made the SS model stand out from the crowd.
The 396 SS package included a hood with two banks of four square shaped simulated air intakes, hood insulation, the SS emblem in the center of the grille, a colored band that accented the front, SS emblems below the Camaro scripted lettering on the front fenders, special components on the chassis, a 396 CID engine, and SS on the fuel filler cap. Dual exhaust was offered at no additional cost. The RS package included the special grille with hideaway headlights, front valance mounted parking lights, lower body side moldings, wheel opening moldings, and rear valance back-up lights.
This is a great looking Camaro RS/SS that was bought new in South Carolina. It is rare and highly optioned as it came with the smog pump, factory AM/FM Multiplex radio, and AC.
