The second generation El Camino was introduced in 1964 and was
based on the Chevelle platform. Our '67 El Camino, originally from
California, has received a full frame-off restoration with
significant mechanical upgrades. The exterior was reshot in
two-stage FoMoCo 'Wimbledon White' and is stunning. Chrome and
stainless are excellent and American Racing Torque Thrust II wheels
with 275/60x15" BFG Radial T/A tires provide great accents. The
six-foot bed is fitted with a custom rubber mat and there is a
hitch receiver hidden behind the license plate. Its handsome black
vinyl interior was restored and is in very good condition.
Legendary Auto Interior components were used for seat covers/door
panels and both the dash and the headliner are outstanding. Comfort
features include factory air conditioning (all new components
w/R134), 300w AM/FM/CD changer stereo system, 3-spoke Grant wheel,
tinted windows, Autogage gauges and an 8,000 rpm tachometer. The
original powerplant has been replaced with a totally built 427ci
big-block. It is said that this '66 motor was machined with a .060
overbore and fitted with 10:1 pistons. (The 'Rat' runs fine on 91
octane.) Heads are rare LS7s with rectangular ports and 2.25"
/1.88" valves. The performance cam utilizes flat tappet solid
lifters and fuel is supplied by a Holley Strip Dominator
single-plane aluminum intake fitted with a 750cfm double-pumper.
Spark is furnished by an MSD ignition, exhaust is routed through a
set of tube-headers to mellow 3" pipes and an aluminum radiator
manages cooling. A Muncie M-22 4-speed 'Rock Crusher' manual
transmission (2.20 low) w/Hurst Comp+ shifter transfers power to a
rebuilt stock differential (single wheel) with 3.08:1 gears. The
chassis mounts power steering and power disc/drum brakes (new)
w/electric vacuum dual-master. Other upgrades include new ball
joints, idler arms, rear air-shocks, a balanced driveshaft and new
u-joints. Look at the photos again, but understand that this sweet
El Camino must be seen to be fully appreciated. It is ready for a
new owner who will value this rare Bowtie. ALL VEHICLES SOLD "AS
