The SS badge donated a performance package on the Camaro, while the RS was a luxury package. Together, they made a formidable machine, and in 396ci (6.4-liter) form, as in this example, it was about as good as the Camaro could get. The 1968 model had changed little in the looks from the first version, but had styling differences such as the loss of the window vents in favor of GM's new Astro ventilation system, plus hidden headlights in the front grille. Mechanically it had staggered shocks and multi-leaf rear springs to control wheel hop. Ordering the SS option gave your car heavy-duty suspension, a 285bhp (213kW) 350ci (5.7-liter) V8, a nose striped and hood emblems. The 396ci (6.4-liter) big-block V8 was a separate option. Also a good idea were the 7x14 inch (178x356mm) rims which aided traction. The 325bhp (242kW) output was just one of three options with the 396.
