Description:

This 1965 Chevy El Camino is a beautifully preserved survivor, carrying its original, numbers-matching 327/4-speed combination, lots of options, and showing just 41,934 original miles. Perhaps the El Camino''s time has passed, but it represents one of the last truly new ideas in the automotive kingdom. A practical utility vehicle based on one of the most potent muscle cars of the era? Where do I sign up? This particular Elky sports a fresh coat of Madiera Maroon paint, its original color, and it perfectly complements its dignified presence. Obviously this has never been a rusty car, hailing from down south where sheetmetal lasts practically forever, and the work was done not too long ago. It''s very straight overall, suggesting that this trucklet never had to work for a living, and there are virtually zero waves in those giant panels that comprise the bed sides. With that in mind and figuring that the truck''s working days were over, the bed painted to match, and fortunately the guys doing the work did an exemplary job of masking off the shiny bits. It carries a rare fiberglass tonneau cover with bed rails that has been on the truck since it was new (a vintage Polaroid photo shows it looking pretty much like it does here). You''ll also note that the chrome and trim is bright, proper badges have been reinstalled, and the overall look is crisp. The highly optioned medium red interior is more proof that this truck was never intended to go to the job site each day. Twin two-tone bucket seats, a center console, and a 4-speed transmission would look more at home in the Elky''s cousin, the Chevelle, than in a mere pickup truck. The upholstery is simply too nice to be original, but it sure looks right and uses factory-style patterns and materials. The carpets, door panels, and dash trim are also new and look awesome, bringing the interior up to the same level as the bodywork. The wide instrument panel and cool horn ring are pure ''60s cool and the high-mounted clock is an unusual option. The original AM radio still plays loud and clear and there''s still a spare tire with a matching cover stashed behind the passenger''s seat. The engine is the original, numbers-matching 327 cubic inch V8 that remains as-built in the El Camino''s engine bay. Satin black inner fenders are a great background for the Chevy Orange engine which appears to be completely original and untouched. There are no aftermarket upgrades, so you get stock painted valve covers with factory ''327'' decals, a standard black air cleaner, and cast iron exhaust manifolds feeding an ancient dual exhaust system. You''ll also note a new master cylinder and maybe freshened coolant hoses, but the rest is simply the result of nearly five decades of care by two loving owners. A factory 4-speed is a rather rare option in an El Camino, and it drives highway-friendly gears in the 10-bolt out back. It''s also fitted with new brakes all around and fresh 205/75/14 whitewall radials on the original wheels with SS wheelcovers, so it''s ready to go. With just two owners (the second bought it from the original owner in 1999), this is an extraordinarily clean, fun El Camino that is also immensely practical. Call today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom. For more information, please call (817) 764-8000 or toll free (855) 877-2707.
