1968 Chevrolet El Camino Super Sport
ORIGINAL: has build sheet, protecto plate & book; glove box book, etcetera. Still has the final inspection hand written number on firewall.
Runs & drives great with no smoke or overheat. All original, including carpet.Dash cluster is in excellent shape. Dash has one crack. Seat is torn on driver's side; door panels are excellent. 1968 is the only year of definitive ID that it is an original Super Sport & 396 factory options. Has all SS factory insignia. Nothing has ever been taken out of the car. It is a factory split back bench with column shift. All the glass is great; roll-ups work perfect. All trim is in place & nice. Was originally goldbut repainted many years ago to white (the bed is still the original color). Had a vinyl top, but now primed. So, will need restoration, or "driver" tidy up. Doors are solid no rust, even on the bottom.No holes in bed (you are seeing surface rust).
This was owned most of it's life by a California horse rancher. He has two horse shoes (combo horse head screwed on the tailgate & had bull horns on the center of the original hood (leaving 3 bolt holes, which now has Chevrolet emblem/racing flags pedestals). Both hood & tailgateare rock solid & can be weld filled correctly. The only rust is at bottom of vinyl roof trim on one side & bottom of both fenders (one more than other; a replacement panel for one side is in cab). Great chrome on bumpers.
**Twelve bolt posi-rear axle (worth $1500+ by itself). Power steering & brakes.
New tires. Everything seems to work accept gas gauge seems pegged to full mark.
I can text/emailpictures of the data plate & VIN plate; or other points of interest.
You won't find another SS, 396ci low miles original, low rustdocumented El Camino for this price. Almost any old classic is priced around $15000 these days, including base model trucks, wagons, & base model El Caminos. Now, finding one that has original low miles, never been butchered, & is a model way above standard cookie cutter renditions, is where money should not be a factor. You found this one. It may be awhile before u see another "without" doubt & fully documented *SS 396 ORIGINAL. When you do, it WILL NOT be under $20k; if it is, it may need extensive rebuild & rust repair. This El Camino could be dusted off, small rust removed, & driven from Florida to California with 99% sure it would makeit.
Clear Florida title.

DON'T LET THIS BE "THE ONE THAT GOT AWAY.
Show me a 1968 in the exact condition of this one, & REAL, for lower pricing (recent 2014 to now). I won't be getting any legitimate showings, I bet.
