    1968 Camaro Pro Touring - Full restoration, 418 stroker LS3, Whipple, 6-speed manual

    Putting the feelers out and thinking about selling my 1968 Camaro pro-touring complete build. This thing is a monster and needs nothing! No expense has been spared on this project. It runs and drives like a brand new car. Not too sure why I'm selling it. I guess I'm just at the feeling of completing one of my life bucket list items by building this car. ...Everyone says I'll regret selling it.

    Body/paint, interior, mechanical, workmanship, style.... I'd rate it all at a 10 out of 10. I'm so OCD about this thing that it never gets driven. ...I even blow the dust off the cover that sits on this thing in the garage I think the odometer shows approximately 440 miles since its complete overhaul.

    Below is a link to the "project updates" that I have posted along the way. A lot of people on the forum have helped me out over the years as this thing has progressed.

    Would be hard to let that one go. That is one the nicest 68 Camaros that I have seen. Very classy and the sound system (exhaust note) is incredible! Well done!

    Can you please tell me what front and back glass you used. I looked at your build but didn't see it.

    Just now saw your question. Sorry about the delay.

    Glass is from Fessler - it's their flush mount stuff.

    Apparently my messenger notification hasn't been working on here. Just replied to the couple of messages I had. Sorry :D

    Just added my phone # to the original post - I didn't realize my phone # wasn't on there!
