1968 Chevrolet Camaro SS convertible El Camaro 1968 es muy similar externamente a la version de 1967. Pequeños cambios de carroceria incluyendo la adicion de luces de posicion laterales (debido a una implementacion gubernamental de la epoca), una parrilla mas en punta, y luces traseras divididas. Debido al nuevo sistema de ventilacion Astro Ventilation, se eliminaron los ventiletes.

Las ofertas de motores para 1968 eran casi identicas a las de 1967, con excepcion del RPO L89 que agregaba culatas de cilindros de aluminio al V8 de bloque grande L78 396. Debido al alto costo de la opcion L89 ($868.95), solo 272 1968 Camaros fueron lanzados con este elemento de performance.

La suspension del Camaro de 1968 se mejoro notablemente gracias a los elasticos traseros de cinco hojas y los amortiguadores relocados. La nueva suspension, no solo mejor el andar del vehiculo y su confort, sino que tambien elimino virtualmente el wheelhop tambien conocido como "salto de las ruedas".

Por dentro, el Camaro 1968 era muy similar al 67, pero incorporo una nueva consola central, paneles de puerta con nuevo estilo, y salidas de ventilacion redondas en los bordes del tablero. La novedad para 1968 fueron los cobertores de asientos, acomodandose a la moda del momento, que era el cuadriculado y escoces.

Hacia finales de 1968, John Z. DeLorean asumio como manager general de la Chevrolet Motor Division, asumiendo luego de Elliott M. "Pete" Estes.

Fue un buen año para el rediseñado Camaro, dado que la produccion alcanzo los 235,147. The total represented 2.8% of total U.S. industry production and compared to 220,906 cars and 2.9% of industry in 1967. According to automotive trade journals of the day, the total included 50,937 6-cylinder (I-6) cars and 184,178 V8 engine-powered Camaro's, although this adds up to only 235,115 cars. Industry trade journals reported that 184,735 Camaro's were built at the Norwood, Ohio, plant and 49,064 Camaro's were made at a factory in Van Nuys (Los Angeles), California. In addition, the trade journals showed 1,248 Camaro's "produced" at an assembly plant in Bloomfield, New Jersey. According to Camaro Brand Manager Scott Settlemire's sources, these 1,248 cars were actually units produced at the Norwood factory and shipped to a site near Bloomfield (possibly Little Ferry), where they were "knocked down" for shipment overseas. This means that the total number of cars built in Norwood, Ohio, was actually 185,983.

The 1968 Camaro Z28 was road tested by 3 major magazines with varying results. "Road & Track" magazine (June 1968) recorded a 3.4-second 0 to 30-mph time, a 6.9-second 0 to 60-mph time, a 15-second 0 to 100-mph time and a 14.90-second quarter mile at 100 mph. "Car Life" magazine (July 1968) recorded a 3.5-second 0 to 30-mph time, a 7.4-second 0 to 60-mph time, a 14.2-second 0 to 100-mph time and a 14.85-second quarter mile at 101.40 mph. "Car and Driver" magazine (June 1968) recorded a 2.2-second 0 to 30-mph time, a 5.3-second 0 to 60-mph time, a 12.3-second 0 to 100-mph time and a 13.77-second quarter mile at 107.39 mph. The "Car and Driver" car was specially prepped by the factory, but beat out a Mustang with similar modifications. A single 1968 Camaro Z28 convertible was specially built for Chevrolet general manager Elliott "Pete" Estes.

Of the Camaro's built in the model-year, 56.4% had automatic transmission, 20.2% had a 4-speed manual transmission, 21.7% were equipped with an I-6 (Inline 6-cylinder) engine, and 78.3% were equipped with a V8 engine.

82% had an AM radio, 3.1% had an AM/FM radio, 1.8% had a factory tape deck, 15.3% had air conditioning, 2.3% had a tilt steering wheel, 49.0% had power steering, 10.2% had power drum brakes, 8.6% had disc brakes, 1.4% had power side windows, 97.9% had front bucket seats, 32.8% had a vinyl roof, 85.3% had white sidewall tires, 25.8% had a tinted windshield (only), 27.8% had all tinted glass, 21.7% had dual exhausts, 15.6% had a limited-slip differential, 62.9% had wheel covers and 0.1% had cruise control.

Camaro sales for calendar-year 1968 came to a new high of 213,980 units (2.50% of the industry) compared to 205,816 (2.7% of the industry) in 1967.

A total of 209,822 new Camaro's were registered in the 1968 calendar year compared to 204,862 in the 1967 calendar year and 41,100 in the 1966 calendar year.

Chevrolet boasted that the 1968 Camaro SS (Super Sport) was dedicated to the "fun crowd." The sales catalog said it was "a husky performer and looks it." Big engines, a beefed-up suspension and special equipment features made this model-option stand out.

The prices of the RPO Z27 SS package varied according to engine. With the L48 V8 the dealer paid $152 and got $210.65 at retail. With the L35 V8 engine the dealer cost was $190 and the retail price was $263.30. With the L34 V8 the dealer cost was $266 and the retail price was $368.65. The L78 version of the SS wholesaled for $361 and retailed for $500.30. The L78/L89 V8 version with aluminum cylinder heads retailed for $868.95 (dealer cost unknown).
