Was there a "California Special" edition of the 1968 Chevy Camaro?

Asked by Jun 13, 2015 at 01:06 AM about the 1968 Chevrolet Camaro RS

Question type: General

I own a '68 Rally Sport Chevy Camaro. My mom purchased it used in 1969. She was told
that it was a "California Special" Edition. I've never seen another like it. It has two
fiberglass scoops on the hood which give it its unique look. Originally, it was painted a
rust color with the bumblebee stripe in black extending  to the door.  It had a black vinyl
top with a light green deluxe interior and hideaway lights.  It has a 327 engine and had a
two-speed power glide transmission.  I would like to know if there are any others like it
out there.

If it exists it was likely a dealer package that some dealership came up with. "California Specials" were Mustangs.
