I''m going to point out that this car is highly accurate and that the restorer recreated all the little details that separate the SS models from their garden-variety siblings. The dash is a correct round-gauge SS dash, there''s a 12-bolt rear out back, and a Muncie 4 speed (disassembled and Rebuilt) behind the big block up front. The wheels are 17-inch Vintique Billet Aluminum SS wheels, too. And have I mentioned that it is in spectacular restored condition? I mean, there''s no way you could duplicate this car for the asking price, not by a long shot. The body is extremely straight, with solid panels all around. In fact, the body and frame were bead blasted to bare metal to insure perfection when reassembled. The floors are new, and I''m guessing the quarters are too, and all the work has been done by experts to a very high standard. The car was assembled with a lot more care than the factory could ever have managed, and as a result the doors open and close effortlessly, the gaps are very good, and panel alignment is first rate. The great thing about fresh steel panels is that they require very little filler, and this car looks great in that 2-stage Black paint with grey SS stripes. Yes, the stripes are painted and embedded under the clear, which takes quite a bit more work than simply laying down some vinyl decals. Once it was dry, it''s obvious that it was thoroughly color sanded and buffed to eliminate any traces of orange peel, leaving a flat, glossy surface that will be a pleasure to wax and detail, and will look killer at your local show or cruise. As one of the most popular cars in history, aftermarket support for El Camino''s is very strong. Because of this, this El Camino features new bumpers front and rear, new door handles, and new mirrors, all of which are accurate reproductions. The stainless around the windshield has been buffed and shined, and is in excellent condition. Lenses are all like new, and as I mentioned, correct "Chevelle" and "SS" badges have been installed in their proper locations. The windshield is new, but the side windows appear to be original and show minimal scratching or other evidence of 40 years of use. The engine compartment is highly accurate too. I''ve seen a lot of restored vehicles, and a vast majority of them are not convincing in any way, shape, or form. The very best cars like this El Camino, however, get the little stuff right in addition to the easy parts. That means correct hoses and tower hose clamps, a correct air cleaner and correct finishes on all the parts. The big block under the hood here has a correct coat of Chevy Orange paint topped by Chevrolet valve covers that aren''t too shiny for that just from the factory look. The block itself is a 396 bored .020 and the crank .010 making 325HP. It''s Numbers matching and runs well, having been rebuilt about 250 miles ago. You''ll also notice a brand new wiring harness, a new power brake booster with a correct cadmium plated appearance, new brakes, lines, pumps, alternator, wiring, exhaust (with stainless steel headers) and a new fuel tank for the finishing touch. You''ll have no qualms about lifting the hood and showing off this engine bay. A rebuilt Muncie 4-speed handles gear selection, it was rebuilt at the same time as the engine, and works as it should. It feeds power to a correct 12-bolt rear packing stock for relaxed cruising - with a big block, tall gears just aren''t needed for potent acceleration. As I mentioned, the floors are new and now carry a light layer of undercoating. The structural components are all in excellent condition. The interior is very nicely done. The seat covers are, of course, new, as is the carpet and accurate SS door panels. The dash is a real SS dash with a tachometer. The AM radio works, the A/C blows cold as it should, and all the gauges read accurately. New floor mats have been recently added.
