John R’s 1968 Camaro

Built From The Ground Up

John R’s 1968 Camaro

John’s father purchased this 1968 Camaro from New Mexico back in 2011. However, he didn’t have the time to dedicate to the restoration so thus it went to John a few years prior.

“My dad was never able to finish putting her together as his job did not allow him the precious time needed.”


John’s proud of the progress he’s made to the car, mostly on his own. It was very important for him to complete the restoration in a timely manner so that his father could see it done. It currently has a 406 small block and an M21 Muncie 4 speed transmission.

This rotisserie restoration was completed at John’s house in his garage. He claims to have built every inch himself, including the paint. He also says that his father and uncle helped him build the drivetrain.
