Default '68 Camaro RS, 327/4-sp

Nice car with what looks to be some odd emblem placement after a repaint...possibly new front fenders which would have meant redrilling emblem holes...who knows. I like the look of a mostly original appearing interior, with the deep embossments on the door panels, etc.

What do you guys think this one is worth? I'm going to be selling my #s '68 RS 327/4-sp car in the next 1-2 month and would like some comparables to think over.

There is a really nice 68 RS in my area with the same colors and the D90 stripe, and it has the 327 emblem in the same place. That would absolutely drive me bananas, and I would spend whatever it took to correct it. Ultimately, the paint guy should have been docked for such a faux pas. The pin stripe down the side is also annoying.

IMO. if the seller doesn't take that $29K bid for the car he is crazy. It appears to be a 210 HP car, and not the more desirable L30/M20 combo. I really think the emblem placement takes away from an otherwise well optioned and well restored car. What a shame.

That is actually an attempt to reproduce the original 1968 side pinstripe, but done incorrectly. The dimensions of the side bands of the nose stripe are way off and that 327 emblem would have to be moved!

I think the pinstripe looks good on a car if done correctly.

That is interesting! I can't say I have ever seen that stripe on a car. Was that on every 68 (early cars) that had the D91 stripe, or was it optional?
