The Camaro was such a success
in 1967 that Chevrolet changed very little for the '68 model year. Two more
SS396 engines were offered, among them the powerful L-89, which differed from
the L-78 with aluminum heads and larger valves. This same 396 with curved
distributor and tuned carburetor, in a '68 Nova SS recently raced to victory in
the 1999 Pure Stock Muscle car Drags with 12.376 @ 111.92 mph...
Some minor styling ques are really the only way to tell the difference between
'67 and '68. The most obvious difference is the addition of front fender
side-marker lights. In addition, the '67 used a side vent wing for the side
window, whereas the '68 utilizes a single window. The '68 Camaro also had square
parking lamps instead of round. An added interior option was hounds tooth seat
The only external change for the Z/28 package was the addition of Z/28 badges
(the '67 Camaro had only one external clue to tell it was a Z/28, being the twin
stripes up the hood and rear deck lid.)
214,707 coupes, 20,440 convertibles, for 235,147 total along with 30,695 SS
models were sold for the 1968 model year.
