This good looking El Camino has been restored and tastefully upgraded to make it into a fun, reliable driver. Restoration costs were thousands more than the current asking price and a thick binder of receipts & records are included with the sale.
According to the Protect-O-Plate, this car was delivered to it’s original owner in Arlington Texas in June 1969.
Factory equipped with Power Steering, Power Brakes, (upgraded to discs in the front) and AC. The AC system has been completely rebuilt with new lines, compressor, dryer, etc. It has the factory SS gauge cluster with tachometer, and an SS hood was added to round out that classic look.
The original numbers matching 350 has been completely rebuilt, and balanced. New pistons, rings, bearings, camshaft, etc. A stroker crank was added to bump the cubic inches up to 383. A new 350 turbo transmission, and torque converter from Summit were installed at the same time. New fuel pump, correct fuel line from pump to carb, and the Quadra-Jet was rebuilt. All original body mounts were replaced with new polyurethane mounts and front suspension bushings. The rear is a 10 bolt with a new Powertrax posi unit.
If you’re familiar with El Caminos, you know they were notoriously leaky in the rear window area. In its previous life the carpet was wet for extended periods of time, causing some rust in the floor. As shown in pictures; a new full floor pan has been properly welded in place, as well as new carpet installed. The frame, rockers, quarters, and fenders are all as solid as can be, and have not been patched or undercoated. This way you can see exactly how solid the body is with nothing hidden. The original vinyl top, which was showing it’s age, was also removed and replaced.
The paint shines beautifully and is free of any major defects. The bed floor has been coated with a spray-on bedliner and is covered by a hinged tonneau cover with gas struts.
If you’re looking for a very nice driver, that hasn’t been overdone, take a good look at this one.
