All interior lights and gauges work as they should including the cigarette lighter and clock.  The horn, stereo, wipers, power windows, and blower motor all work.  This El Camino has factory air conditioning and and all the factory AC components look to remain in tact.          


This El Camino is in excellent mechanical condition with only 86,778 actual miles and drives very well.  We have driven this El Camino several times and it drives nicely, it does not run hot, rides very tight, and is a true joy to drive.  There is no smoke when starting or driving the car and it has no rattles or annoying noises.  The brakes do not pull and stop as they should.  Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos.  The exhaust was upgraded with a performance muffler and has a nice rumble at idle and cruising speeds.  sThis El Camino has been loved and meticulously cared for by its previous owners and the overall condition of the truck and the way it runs and drives validates that.  This Choo Choo was loved by its long time owners and proudly shown off at numerous car shows over the years.  .
