Default 1968 Camaro - Project Track Rat

Item Location (City/State): Orange County, CA

Price: $94,000 or offer SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD SOLD

Description: Long

I'm not online much so best to email me at [email protected]

I've been building this car for 11 years.. so it's sort of sad to sell now that it's getting done. There have been numerous stories on this car and the build. I'm selling due to a complete lack of time and I need to choose between my wagon project and this.. the wagon can carry lumber from Home Depot so it won! ha!

You could not duplicate this car for $150k, so for a brand new car with all brand new higher-end parts I think my price is damn good. The block alone retails for over $5k and that's just one part. Car is located in SoCal and is just getting finished up with minor items like some wiring, tuning, and adjustments. It will go back to TMI for an interior tune up.

Price is $94,000 but I'm open to offers, cash is king


So, let's get to it:

1968 Camaro
Paint by Best Of Show Coachworks in Escondido CA

It's a custom blue from the Axalta catalog. Nicer in person than in photos since it always looks lighter in shots. Hood, front valance, and rear valance (and rear spoiler) are all carbon fiber from Anvil. The rear quarters were widened about 1.5 inches per a side for a widebody look. The craftsmen over at JCG in Ventura did the stretch. It took forever to get right, but it looks factory.

The car is just getting finished, we just need to align, tune, and then TMI will be updating the seats a few other parts. I really don't have time to track sort the car, so that can be fun for the new owner.

It's just left JBA where they TIG welded on a new 306-stainless exhaust system with billet hangers.

Again, it's a really cool car.. I just don't have the time to mess with it and finish my other projects. All new and top-shelf parts. Let me know if you want more or specific photos.


There were a ton of stories online, but our site recently had a problem so many of them now have no, or less, images, which is a shame, but I hope they will fix soon. Below are a few of the dozens of stories on the car.
