Description for Chevrolet El Camino 1968

The more you look at this 1968 Chevrolet El Camino, the more you realize it's a very custom vehicle. More than just the sleek body, you're going to discover a powerful fuel-injected V8, overdrive, and a custom A/C interior. So it's amazing you can get this full package for such an obtainable price. The great thing about an El Camino was that it was supposed to be adaptable for everything. This was the one vehicle that could go to church on Sunday, and run a bale of hay from the fields on Monday. Along the way, something else got added into the mix...attitude. With El Caminos getting caught up in the muscle car war that was consuming its Chevelle sibling, they became the baddest truck/car around. 1968 was a particularly mean-looking year for the El Camino, including styling that was updated to give the front overhang that look of angry eyebrows. The black paint has the slick look of darkness, and this intimidation is enhanced with the painted bumpers. More than just look sinister, the black is a great backdrop for all the brightwork in the grille and complete side trim. Plus, the Centerline wheels unite the ideas of shine and aggression perfectly. While the outside has added aggression, the inside has added comfort. The custom gray seats have a soft cloth, and the unique pattern is continued on the doors for a nice total package feeling. This has all the right features for a great cruiser, including cold factory air conditioning and an upgraded Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth and iPod input. But what you'll really enjoy is the experience behind the wheel. You get the classic Malibu three-spoke steering wheel with power steering. That gives you an excellent view of all the gauges, including the barrel tach in the center â€" a 1968-only feature! Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch crate V8. You'll love showing off the engine bay, because everyone will be pointing at this unique motor. After all, it's easy to spot the modern GM Performance Ram Jet fuel injection system in place of the classic carburetor. And not only does it look great with all the polished components, but it's backed up by all the right supporting pieces like dual electric fans, a Spectre air intake, and serpentine belt system. It's a forceful setup that's only enhanced further by the Hooker headers that feed the rumbling dual exhaust. A powerful package like this needs the right drivetrain components to back it up. That's why you have a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission built by Hughes Performance. This feeds a strong Auburn 12-bolt rear featuring Positraction and 3.73 gears. There are even strong Morrison rear arms. Plus, they added a Gear Venders Under/Over drive to give you complete control over the powerband while also delivering overdrive comfort. You can tell there was a ton invested in this unique classic. So now is your opportunity to get something so well equipped at such a nice price. Call today!!!
