Hi kittykat, The '68 had more chrome accent pieces on the body than did the '69. In general, the '68 looks more "toned down" than the '69. The '69 has more of a muscle car look to it. That's my opinion. You can go online and search on Google Images for both vehicles and notice the differences. Hope this helps!

Easiest way to tell a '69 from a '68 or '67 if you are not a car buff persee........ look at the wheel wells. 68 and 69 are round.... 69 are squared off at the top.

if it's a true 68, it will have the hidden headlights. The 69's came out with the headlights showing in the grill. The 68 had the headlights that looked like part of the grill, but flipped out when they were turned on

One thing I always look at is the tail lights..a 68 has more square, plain tail lights, where the 69 is more rectangle, and even has a slant in them. 69's also have the "shark gills" just in front of the back tires. If you look at the pics of mine, you may not be able to see them, because I don't have the chrome on mine. Most of the time, there will be chrome accents on these. Those are the main things I look at when I see a Camaro go down the road...the more my husband gets done on his 68, the more I will take pictures and can actually document the differences! Would be a neat photo essay...*shrugs sholders* maybe???
