Asked by Feb 25, 2007 at 01:01 PM about the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro

Question type: General

Just purchased a 68 Camaro rolling shell with the shifter on the steering wheel column. Been looking at the first gen. camaros on ebay. Have seen plenty, but none with steering wheel column shifter.
And was wondering, Why?

I haven't found any production numbers, but '68 was the last year you could order a Camaro with a bench seat in front, and any of those cars would have needed a steering-column-mounted shifter. Looks like most folks preferred the shifter on the floor, though, and based on a bunch of project notes I've seen on forums, a bunch of folks have converted column-shift cars to floor shifters.
