Please contact me at : joannjllawing@rangersfans.com . 1968 CAMARO RS/SS CONVERTIBLE - BELIEVE TO BE A GM PROMOTIONAL VEHICLE - LOADED WITH NEARLY EVERY OPTION CHEVROLET OFFERED Original Bolero Red Paint with Ultra Rare D-88 Stripe You're looking at a one-of-a-kind LOADED RS/SS 396/350HP Convertible.....equipped with nearly every factory option Chevrolet offered in 1968. In addition to the raritiy of options, this car is also a SURVIVOR - still wearing its ORIGINAL 48 year old 'Matador Red' paint, and sporting the beautifully contrasting Deluxe Ivory houndstooth interior. The first things people notice on this car is the unique nose stripe, which unbeknown to most was actually a factory option introduced in mid to late '68 production. It is the RPO D-88 Multi Colored Nose Stripe which was pictured in the second issued 1968 Camaro dealer brochure. The car in the brochure was a red RS with this identical stripe - colors and all. In all my research, this stripe never made it to production due to the complexity of painting the 5 color band. But it was believed to have been factory installed a few Camaro's to be used as GM promotional cars. These promotional cars were all supposedly loaded up Big Block convertibles, like this one. As stated before, the paint on this car is mostly original (has had a few areas touched up here and there over the years), but the nose of the car and the stripe appears to 1968 original! All that said, this may be the only original example of this option existing in the world! Now, about the options. Yes, it has virtually every option em all! Here is a summary.... L-34 396ci 350hp Engine - #'s Match (2, 579 Built) Turbo Hydromatic (T-400) Transmission Posi-traction Rear Axle Super Sport Package Rally Sport Package Light Monitor System (Fiber-optics) (1, 755 Built) Factory Air Conditioning Power Convertible Top Power Steering Power Disc Brakes Power Windows (3, 304 Built) Fold Down Rear Seat Deluxe Interior (Ivory Houndstooth) Headrests Speed & Cruise Control (Only 327 Built!)

RPO D-88 Multi Colored Nose Stripe (Maybe 1 of 1??) How many Camaros were built with this combination of options and color? Certainly less than can be counted on your fingers. This is truly a RARE Camaro, no doubt. And I'm guessing that if you are still reading this ad at this point, you likely want to know more about the car. So, here is my history with it....... I originally purchased this car in 1996 from a man near St Paul Minnesota, after seeing it in Hemmings Motor News. The car was described in a non-photo ad as a 'RS/SS convertible, red, V/8, many options'....and I paid a whopping $16, 000 sight unseen. I kept the car for almost a year before deciding my wife and newborn son needed a minivan instead of a Big Block RS/SS Camaro convertible. So along came the Chrysler Town and Country (ohh, a beauty for sure in fairway green with tan leather - LOL), and away went my dream Camaro. I offered it for sale and it didn't take but a week or two to sell it. But it wasn't long after sneaking in a few Camaro books (while I was supposed to be reading Dr Suess) that I read an article about the odd (if not ugly) front 'stripe'...... it was actually an original Chevrolet option (almost). I guess, as the story goes, it was a bit to difficult to paint in production, so it was can
