1968 Camaro LT1

Joe LohrCompleted Projects

Our tagline at the top of our website is "Where Classic Style Meets Modern Technology."
How much more modern can you get with a 2015 Corvette LT1 engine? This '68 will have plenty of modern technologies throughout, but still retaining the classic style that GM created in the 60's.
The car had an inline-6 cylinder with a 3 speed manual, which is fun for cruising, but not so fun to merge onto the interstate with. We sourced a new GM LT1 that we'll be swapped into this, backed by a 4L70e. Check out the specs & pictures following for more info!
