1968 Chevrolet El Camino
1968 Chevy El Camino. This is a west coast Chevy from Washington state. It is a very solid car with a nice straight body. The car starts right up with no smoke or noises and runs good. Vin decodes as follows...1= Chevy (the manufacturer)36= Custom El Camino V8 (Model - Series)80= Two Door Sedan Pick Up (Body Style)8= 1968 (Model Year)B= Baltimore MD. (Assy. Plant)The last six= The sequential Production Numbers.In 1968 Chevy made 41791 El Caminos +/-Only 26690 were Custom El Camino V8s like this one.5190 Were SS El Caminos and the rest were -Standard El Caminos- with a 6 cyl. or 8 Cyl. engine.This is a great driver. I drive the car a few times a month without issue. The door jambs and engine bay are gloss black already, I just like the way it looks now and wherever I go people always say No Way don't paint the car... So this is how I've driven it the last couple summers. I know everyone has different tastes so if you did want the gloss black paint job with white stripes, the jambs have already been painted. It also has a very nice original steel cowl hood installed if you wanted to make a SS tribute car. Washington state plates that came on the car when I bought it are included as well as other Washington state info. It has the old two into one exhaust that I had planned on replacing with headers and a dual exhaust system. It also has one seam that needs to be re-stitched on the original headliner and a new windshield wiper switch. Just some little stuff that still needs attention but I wanted to point these things out to everyone. This is a very solid and honest old Chevy. If your wondering why the picture shows the car with a Michigan plate on it it's because it was the only plate I had that said 1968 on it so I put it on there for the pictures! Thanks for taking the time to check out my car and if you have any questions I will be glad to help.
