Description for Chevrolet El Camino 1967

This car is a very solid. reliable driver. I've owned it for more than 15 years and have performed all necessary repairs and maintenance including: replaced the carburetor (Holley 625CFM). power steering pump. steering box. brake master cylinder and power booster. brake lines. pads. shoes. nbsp; all suspension bushings. front and rear shocks. resleeved the original 4 piston front calipers. Unlike many "restored" cars offered at top dollar on this site and others -- some of which were put together with reproduction parts. newly painted and undercoated to conceal original rusted bodywork and undercarriages -- this is an honest. original. nbsp;California black plate survivor car. The good: body and chassis are straight and rust free. paint is about 5 years old and still looks fresh. I've added a factory correct optional tilt steering column in place of the standard non-tilt unit. factory original equipment still on the car includes: heavy duty Harrison radiator. 12 bolt Dana posi rear. Turbo 400 trans. large front sway bar. 4 piston caliper front disc brakes. 396/325HP big block engine. the engine runs perfectly. starts quickly hot or cold. idles smoothly. doesn't burn oil. and will light up the tires without even trying. The bad: needs an interior and underhood detailing. wipers aren't working. headliner is missing (metal ribs are still there). and all interior components show wear consistent with unrestored 48 year old equipment. originally a factory A/C car. but compressor. brackets. and hoses are all missing. originally fitted "knee knocker" tach is missing. mileage is most likely greater than odometer reading. The trim plate code indicates this car was assembled in Fremont. CA. originally painted Mountain Green Metallic with black interior. Engine stamping code indicates the block is an original 396/325HP produced at Tonawanda plant on April 14. 1967. It's time for a new owner to take over and pick up where I've left off - this car is definitely a worthwhile investment that can be driven anywhere as is. fully restored. or both.
