im trying to get this 68 that is setting at a house next door to a friends house.it has been setting there since 1980.so you can imagine how sorry it looks.needs most of the pannels replaced.the glass is good.interior isn't too bad.might need new carpet and major cleaning.it looks to be the origional gold color.327 4 speed.i think its the origional engine.i have not checked vin numbers.noone lives at the house where the car is so i just kinda looked at it,but didn't touch it. the hood is bent so it doesn't close the whole way so i could see some of the engine.its definately fixable with a good bit of welding.i don't know what it needs to get it to run.until i talk to the guy.any idea what it could be worth?what would be a good price.

if that is one of the L79 (i think) 327/275 4 speeds then thats one hell of a car! the first gens are going up allot in value but say if the guy wasnt in the know of it all (and he definatly isnt if its sitting there!) you could get it cheap. If you can track him down offer him 2 or 3 but tray talking the car down like "oh it will need this and taht and look at this rust here" etc etc.. if you could snap some pics that would be great!

is there different 327 cars? i mean are some worth more than others?

yes, there was a 327/275 and a 327/210 the 327/275 is a nasty motor, the 327/275 option was cancelled in 69'. Theres an article on it somewere ill find it.

Look at the rear end in the car. There were some 327 4 speed cars that received 12 bolt rear ends. These are referred to as L30/M20 cars. L30 being the RPO for the 327/275 hp engine and the RPO M20 is for the 4 speed transmission. Not all 327 4 speed cars recieved a 12 bolt, most had the 10 bolt. Sounds like it could be a good car. Look at the vin through the windshield, that will tell you if it was originally V8 or I6. If it begins with 124378 it is a V8 and if it begins with 123378 it is a I6 (assuming it is a coupe). That is a start without having to touch the car.

thanks.ill have to check the car out again.theres a chance the guy might let my friend take his cars (there are 3 ) to get junked.and instead of junking the camaro i will take it.the guy doesn't seem to care at all about the car.so i might be able to get it for like less than 100 bucks.or whatever they pay for junk cars now.bargain of a lifetime.

Don't low ball the guy! Offer him fair market value. What happens in situations like this is, people come along and express interest in a vehicle, the owner relents and says make me an offer. The buyer starts the typical low balling, and the owner says he'll think about. Next thing you know, he tells a family member of friend about the offer and you know one of them is going to say, "That's all he offered you! I will give you X dollars more for it." Then your car is gone, so just offer him fair market value.

OK that were on this topic i called a guy on a 69 convert almost identicle to mine. Minus the white body color and power top, its got the 250 (mines a 230) 2 speed power glide. An oh yea the only ruse on it is a tiny spot near the front of the left door. he wants 6k but next car cruise night im gonna shoot the breez with him and see if i can get it for 4k my dad said he'd buy it if its 4k! What do ya think? 2 convertable camaros of the same year? It would be a great car to just put in (;);););)) untill mines done!
