Do you miss your car from high school? Matt Koops doesn’t because he still owns it. He bought this Chevrolet in 1986 and continues to enjoy it in the same condition that it was back in the day. It even sports most of the Day 2 mods he installed as a wee lad. Few are so lucky!

This Ash Gold 1968 Chevelle SS 396 sports the base 325-horsepower L35 big-block and the optional TH400 automatic with console, but the original owner liberally specified other options including air conditioning, Positraction rear with 3.31 gears, stripes, AM/FM Stereo with 8-track, power steering and front disc brakes, and bumper guards. Under the hood you’ll find a 780 Holley, Holley Street Dominator intake, Crane Fireball camshaft, and Blackjack headers – painted white, no less!

Interestingly, Matt is a renowned restorer of Dodge Chargers and related Mopars. In fact, if you’ve ever seen the 1969 Dodge Charger Daytona that was beltline-deep in Florida hurricane water several years ago, his shop (Muscle Or Performance Auto Restoration) is handling the rebuild.

Join Muscle Car Campy as he tells us the tale of this 1980s-era Day 2 1968 Chevelle SS 396 and takes us for a drive. And, if you enjoy this, you can find more Muscle Car Campy videos from Tampa & vicinity here.
