I have a ebay search of stuff that is close, and this Elky is about 20 miles or so away.Special paint on a '68 SS 396 ElCamino with a black bench seat, built in Fremont, 3rd week of May. Any pics of what the tag came off of? Any chance of finding the original paint color on the car anywhere?
Yup ,COPO could be anything not on the standard order sheet for a specific car.
Dale ,how far into the model year is this car?
I noticed the engine stamping date and transmission date were at least date-correct for the car too. All-in-all, it sure looks good in the photos. :thumbsup:Fremont's May production ended at 158132, so the number is within range.
I have a friend who used to own a 1968 Camaro SS 396 375hp that was a paint delete.PPG doesn't show any Orange on Chevrolets in 1968. Hugger Orange didn't appear until 1969.
