1968 Chevrolet El Camino

We know you already love the look of a deep, dark 1968 Chevrolet El Camino, but look a little closer at this one. This highly restored example has all the right upgrades, like an amazing performance-built big block with about 200 miles on the rebuild, four-wheel disc brakes, and a setup for modern A/C. So you soon realize something that looks this good can also deliver everything you want in a classic.The only thing this El Camino looks like it was meant to do is haul on asphalt. The slick black paint has the kind of luster that so nicely complements the shine on the grille, window trim, and around the truck bed. You can really tell there was a nice investment in making sure everything was straight so the shine could remain even. The '68 cars had a meaner attitude, where the front end had an overhang like a furrowed brow. And when you combine them with the mirror-like wide chrome bumper up front, it gives this classic the look like it always has a menacing smile (and once you drive it, you'll know exactly why!) This shiny but sinister attitude is seen everywhere, right down to the details like the dual cowl hood, bed cover, and large 17-inch American Racing Torq Thrust wheels.Just like the outside, the interior has a dark side. As a restored El Camino, you can tell that if the seats, carpeting, door panels, or headliner was not up to standard, it was replaced with the correct material to makes sure it reinforces this quality midnight cruiser attitude. But this is not a complete sea of darkness. All the black makes special elements, like the auxiliary gauge package, and the wood and chrome Chevy sports steering wheel standout. You have all the right upgrades for a great driver such as a tach and full system for modern R134a air conditioning. There's even an AM/FM cassette stereo, but we really know your favorite soundtrack will be the one that starts under the hood.You're going to love showing off the engine bay. Just like the exterior, it continues that black and chrome theme as it fills the entire space with big block power. With only 200 miles on this monster since being built, and the 427 cubic-inch motor has been bored out for even more power. The full performance rebuild includes components like a Eagle forged crank, Eagle I-beam rods, new pistons & rings, BBC performance cam bearings, stainless valves, Lunati big block cam, Lunati lifter spring kit, aluminum rocker arms, aluminum heads, MSD Streetfire ignition, Weiand stealth intake, and a Holley double-pumper 850 carburetor. This connects to the long tube headers that feed the rumbling H-pipe dual exhaust. And making sure you have the right power to back up this sound is a stout TH350 three-speed automatic transmission, with a stall kit, to keep you in the optimal powerband. Oh yeah, this is an El Camino built to be just as forceful as it looks. But because power is nothing without control, you have power steering, Sumitomo HTR-Z performance tires, and a four-wheel disc brake package with slotted and vented rotors.This is the perfect El Camino that looks mean on the outside, and has more than enough power to back up this image. Complete with build receipts, a quality restored classic like this is always going to attract attention, so you know you have to hurry if you want to take it home. Call now!!
