1968 Chevrolet El Camino SS
Other Car for sale in Pottsboro, Texas 75076
Pottsboro, TX 75076
From around 1956 until the mid 1980s, Dodge, Plymouth and even Chrysler squads were the most ubiquitous police cars in North America. In fact, the biggest department, the NYPD, used Plymouth and Dodge squads almost exclusively until the rear-drive M body car was finally axed in 1989.
The no-frills Savoy two-door sedan was home to another engine of considerable repute, the infamous 413 Max Wedge, a Super Stock monster block Chrysler introduced in the spring of 1962.
Classic Car Overview
This car has many great options – real 68 SS by VIN, Big Block, 4-speed, A/C, PS, PB, Electric Windows, speed warn, tilt wheel, roll tach, bucket seats, 12-bolt with 307 gears, remote mirror, console. The 427 is professionally built to 375HP spec, this is a real late 60’s 427, not made-from-parts 454 block with 396 crank. The 427 is completely rebuilt with block stripped and vatted, new freeze plugs, new pistons / rods, cam / lifters / rockers, timing chain, oil pump; oval port heads refreshed, edlebrock intake and Holley 750. Shortie headers, side pipes, MSD. I have 10K in the engine alone. This car is built to run and drive, and will not only get all you want out of the hole and then some, but this car will run down the highway in 100 degree heat as fast, smooth, straight and long as you dare. Zero rust, this car was taken to bare metal all around and painted about 5 years ago, no rust in bed, no rust on frame or floors, no rust anywhere. Look closely at cars you are considering! True rust-free 60’s cars are very hard to find, and El Camino's with the open bed are especially susceptible.
Paint has some blemishes now, nothing serious, this car is show & drive, and I drive it regularly. Carpet is good, was new when I got the car, but not cut well around the console, that was done before me. New headliner when the car was painted. All A/C components new and replaced and in place, including correct R6 rebuilt compressor, system needs to be professionally charged, is an original R-12 system, I put some R-12 in it just to pressure the system and check for leaks. Compressor will kick on and blow cold air, but not recommended for use until professional charging. All brakes rebuilt, including the front calipers, where I sent them off to be professionally rebuilt. Rear end was rebuilt when I got the car some 8-10 years ago. Suspension completely replaced with OEM and then aligned – new ball joints, bushings, shocks, coil springs in front, etc. Car is always garaged and comes with a car cover. I can’t speak to the 4-speed, don’t know what it is, M-22 or M-21 or whatever, of course it is a Muncie. I custom made the shifter handle to suit my placement, I think the shifter itself is nothing special, whatever was stock. I think the car shows like 83K on the speedo. I never hooked up the roll tach, I don't know if it works or not. No radio in the car, as shown in pictures, and I don't have it. I have trim that goes with the car that is not on it, rear window mostly. Some of the extra trim is just trim that I have replaced with new trim that came with the car when I bought it, all of the trim was in GM wrapping. Extra new rear bumper also came with the car, I just cleaned up the old one and didn't change it, looks fine to me and probably a better product.
Various things still need to be completed. Interior windshield post trim, small trim at edges of front fenders, dash pad, small things here and there. The electric window motors I’m sure are original and they are very slow.
I have taken this car to shows and brought home trophies as it sits today. Clear blue Texas title.
I have a 396 out of an early 70’s PU that can be purchased along with the car if desired for an additional $3.5K. Only for sale with the car. I ran it in the El Camino for 3 years, it is an excellent 396, no leaks, runs cool at all speeds, very
strong motor, no smoke. Roller lifters. Was rebuilt prior to my purchase so I can’t speak to internals or if it has been bored or not; intake to pan complete and ready to drop in. I also have a 20 foot all-steel dove tail trailer I purchased new I think in 2016, built in
ramps, I mounted a winch in a steel box, painted the deck of the trailer silver so it is not hot in the sun; this trailer hasn’t been 200 miles since new and the winch has been used once to pull up a 1963 C30 Chevy PU, the winch and trailer will get the job done. The
El Camino has never been on the trailer, might have to take off the side pipes to get it on there. Trailer also only for sale with the car, for additional $3.5K, have title for trailer but never registered.
All various used parts I have laying around for this car go with it.
Bring your stout truck, tie-downs, a battery for the trailer winch, and you will be good to go with a purchase of the El Camino and the trailer – or bring your own trailer, or bring someone to drive it home. We have enjoyed this car a great deal, but I have had to downsize on my shop and something has to go.
Wire fund transfer only please. No trades, no checks of any kind. I don't need any help selling the car. I am in no particular hurry, this ad is run-till-sell. Very reasonable offers considered, but please no low ball offers. This car is not junk. Thank you.
