Classic Car Overview

With the handsome good looks of a Chevelle and the utility of a pickup, the El Camino offers the best of both worlds: performance and practicality. This 1968 Chevrolet El Camino has been built to further blur the lines that separate vehicles: performance, great looks, and comfort. The bodywork is nicely finished and the workmanship is shown to great effect thanks to the beautiful bright red paint with black SS stripes, which look just about right on this racy truck/car. These vehicles typically led harder lives than your average Chevelle, and finding a clean one, let alone investing enough to bring it to this condition, is tough. Gaps are good and a lot of time was invested in getting the body panels this straight when it was repainted a few years ago, and theres very little wear and tear beyond some polishing scratches that are just barely visible. The bed is protected by a hard-shell tonneau cover and the bed was refinished with gorgeous oak planks that look warm and inviting, but also mean the bed is best used as the worlds biggest trunk. Trim is bright and well maintained, with good chrome on the bumpers, a stock grille, and the trim around the bed is very nice, with no obvious dings or damage from use. A black vinyl top is a rarely-seen option but it looks remarkably good on this upscale El Camino. The black interior is almost entirely new and features a pair of neatly upholstered black buckets with red stripes that seem appropriate. Carpets, headliner, and door panels are reproduction pieces that look good and fit right, and the bucket seats make it feel spacious in the cab. A custom center console has a carbon fiber look and a Hurst shifter, which features a carbon fiber shift ball for a high-tech look. Factory gauges are joined by a column-mounted tach and auxiliary dials under the dash and the wheel is from Budnik, and it works well the carbon accents. Cold A/C is a nice touch in a car thats built to cruise, and you also get an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit that really fills the small cabin with sound. This El Camino has all the right stuff to make a first-rate hobby car. The engine is the original 327 cubic inch V8, which was recently rebuilt and runs extremely well. Its got the usual upgrades including an aluminum intake manifold, Holley 4-barrel carburetor, full roller valvetrain, MSD ignition, ported heads, and long-tube headers to help build torque. The engine bay is extremely sanitary and clean, with a lot of dress-up items such as those chrome valve covers and air cleaner as well as a custom serpentine belt drive with polished accessories. The transmission is a 4-speed manual, likely the cars original transmission, and it snaps through the gears with authority. Theres a recent Flowmaster dual exhaust system that gives it a great performance sound and the 12-bolt rear end feels like it has street-friendly gears inside. Handsome polished Torque Thrust wheels stuff the wheel wells, wearing big 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. With a great deal of money spent recently, this is a good, clean El Camino thats ready to enjoy. Turn on the A/C, crank up your favorite tunes, and enjoy the ride. Call it a truck, call it a car, either way youre going to love this El Camino. Call us today!
