Description for Chevrolet El Camino 1966

This 1967 El Camino is one of those cars that brings a smile to everyone's face. Perhaps the El Camino's time has passed, ut it represents one of the last truly new ideas in the automotive kingdom. A practical utility vehicle based on one of the most potent muscle cars of the era, omplete with a matching-numbers big block and a 4-speed? Where do I sign up?This particular Elky sports a coat of Madeira Maroon paint, iving it an elegant look that perfectly contrasts with its sporty attitude. It's very straight overall, uggesting that this trucklet never had to work for a living, nd there are virtually zero waves in those giant panels that comprise the bed sides. There are a few signs of use, nd you really shouldn't be afraid to put this Elky to work now and then, t won't mind. With that in mind, he bed was given a spray-on bedliner that's both durable and practical, nd fortunately the guys doing the work did an exemplary job of masking off the shiny bits, o it look crisp and fresh. You'll also note that the chrome and trim is bright and clean, roper badges have been reinstalled, nd the overall look is very stock, ithout so much as a fake SS badge to be seen anywhere.From behind the wheel, ou could easily imagine that you're at the helm of a big block Chevelle SS, ecause it offers bucket seats, console, nd a 4-speed stick right in the middle. The upholstery is older but correct, sing factory style patterns and materials, nd while it relegates the El Camino to a 2-seater, don't think anyone will complain. The carpets, oor panels, nd dash trim are indeed replacements and look awesome. The wide instrument panel and 3-spoke steering wheel are pure GM performance in the '60s, nd a set of auxiliary gauges have been added under the dash and complement the factory clock in the console. It's not too heavy on options, ith the original owner instead focusing on performance, ut there's a factory AM radio in the dash, lthough its inoperative status means this truck is ripe for an upgrade. There's also a modest storage area behind the seats and heavy-duty floor mats to protect the carpets.The engine is the original, umbers-matching L35 396 cubic inch V8 that has been well-dressed for duty in the El Camino's engine bay. Rebuilt about 350 miles ago, t's fresh and ready to rock, lthough with the lightweight bed out back, utting the power down is going to always be a challenge. 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 reproduction decals. Power upgrades include an upgraded camshaft whose idle sounds awesome, nd a set of long-tube headers dumping into a Flowmaster dual exhaust system. You'll also note a big radiator, eavy-duty cooling fan, nd all-new hoses, elts, lugs, nd wires. A 4-speed manual gearbox spins a set of 4.11 gears in the 12-bolt rear, uggesting that this Elky was built for combat, ot service. It's quite clean underneath and sits just right on proper Rally wheels and staggered 225/60/15 front and 245/60/15 rear blackwall radials.In terms of clean, un cruisers that are also immensely practical, his El Camino is an excellent choice. And with a big block, -speed, nd matching-numbers, t could also be considered a smart investment. Call today!
