Description for Chevrolet El Camino 1966

This 1966 Chevrolet El Camino is one of those cars that brings a smile to everyone's face. A practical utility vehicle based on one of the most potent muscle cars of the era, complete with a numbers-matching big block and a four-speed. And now that you've seen the price on this restored El Camino, you might not have enough time to finishing reading this before it's gone.There was a serious investment in the El Camino, and you can tell it from the moment you see how straight the sheetmetal is. But it takes more than erasing any signs of a work life from this truck/coupe to having this kind of presence. During the restoration it was also given a professional application of Chevy's legendary Marina Blue, and thanks to modern clearcoats, it reveals an ocean's worth of depth when the sunshine hits it. Even the truck bed shines with a look-at-me quality. This transformation back to factory fresh would not be compete without the chrome and stainless trim being in immaculate condition on everything from the wide grille, to the hood gills, to the mirrored bumpers that make this pickup look like a Chevelle. And of course, no aggressive vintage Chevy would look complete without a set of bright Rally wheels.The moment you open the door, you'll swear it's 1966, and that's for a very good reason. The complete restoration included switching the color to a more aggressive hue while still retaining the factory specs. The black vinyl bench has the kind of cushioning that feels like no one else ever sat here before. The wood-rimmed sports steering wheel feels great, and the original-style AM radio is even still humming out tunes. You do get an auxiliary gauge trio and a large tach. So overall, it has the kind of atmosphere that you know you'll love resting your right hand on the shifter and watching the needle rapidly climb on the extra wide speedometer.The engine is the original, numbers-matching L35 396 cubic inch V8 that has been well-dressed for duty in the El Camino's engine bay. Satin black inner fenders are a great background for the Chevy Orange engine which is further dressed up with chrome valve covers and a chrome air cleaner with the correct decals. The big block inhales deeply through a Holley four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority with long-tube headers feeding the newer stainless dual exhaust. Best of all, you are in complete control of the sound and the fury of this big V8 thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. But when you're just cruising, this El Camino settles down into a pleasant tune... and the dual personality is exactly how you should view this coupe/pickup. After all power steering, Chevelle suspension, and front disc brakes make this a fine choice for easy cruising. Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at a fully restored numbers-matching big block El Camino. And all this desirability is at quite a nice price. Call today!!!
