This is an original restoration of a SS396, 350hp L48 El Camino. Correct 12 bolt posi rearend. 331 gears.. Date code for rearend is K298 ( Nov 29,1968) and code is CW 12078. Truck was built January of 69. If original is what you're looking for, this is the one. All numbers matching. Correct numbers even on the spark plug wires and hoses. The air conditioner pump is also correct. The engine compartment is pristine. All the sheet metal is original. The bed is the cleanest you'll see anywhere. We tore the engine down when the car was restored and it didn't need boring. Just honed the cylinders and rebuilt. Based on that, there's a good chance the mileage is correct, but I can't verify it and won't claim it. The car was sold new in Burlingame, CA, and has been in a heated garage in Colorado since I restored it. It has one of the nicest paint jobs you'll ever see and is identical to the car on the Chevrolet model brochure from 1969 with the surfboards in the back. Contact me if you have any other questions.
