reading for all the details, but you already know this one is going
The great thing about an El Camino was that it was supposed to be adaptable for everything. This was the one vehicle that could go to church on Sunday, and run a bale of hay from the fields on Monday. Along the way, something else got added into the mix...attitude. With El Caminos getting caught up in the muscle car war that was consuming its Chevelle sibling, they became the baddest truck/car around. 1968 was a particularly mean-looking year for the El Camino, and it's only enhanced further by the custom work on this one. The styling was updated to give the front overhang that look of angry eyebrows. The SS grille is blacked out for a more sinister appearance. This dark attitude is continued over the blacked-out bumpers and trim. Even the truck bed has been give a dose of mean attitude with a tough dark liner paint. In fact, the only real hints of color on this is the gunmetal gray of the American racing Torq Thrust wheels and the red taillights - that's very sinister indeed!
The interior is so deep, dark, and black, that even the windows have a limo grade tint. The black vinyl on the bench seat is in fine condition, and the door panels, dash, and carpeting reinforce this midnight cruiser attitude. All of this black makes the chrome touches on the three-spoke wheel, door handles, glovebox, and other trim pieces really stand out. This might be a brute, but it still has nice features like heat/defrost and an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo. The driver gets a commanding view, and the custom Equus gauge package, which lets you know there's something nice under the hood.
The engine bay is one of the few touches of color in this all-black El Camino. The blue block of the 350 cubic-inch V8, aluminum valve covers, and chrome alternator make for nice standouts under the hood. But more than look good, this small block has been enhanced with an Edelbrock intake, Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, and we suspect a Comp Cam. It produces plenty of power, and the rumble from the glasspack dual exhaust lets the world know it, too. This El Camino might be designed to be an intimidator, but it also has some built-in comfort advantages. The El Camino utilizes Chevelle suspension components for a more luxurious ride. Add in power steering, power brakes, and a TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, and you won't be afraid to take this aggressor anywhere.
This is the perfect El Camino to enjoy as both a classic and a functional pickup. And when you can do it all at an affordable price, this turnkey bad boy won't be hanging around here long. Call today!!
