1970 EL CAMINO - Purchased new from Eddie Hopper Chevrolet in Garden Grove, A on November 16, 970 - the original owner was a decorated WWII veteran and drove it for 35 years - when he passed, is son-in-law began restoring the car - this was a true labor of love and respect - there is no stone unturned - he pulled the motor and trans when the car was painted and he had all the seals and hoses done - headers and flow masters - new wiring harness - full interior, one in leather - any parts replaced were done with OPG replacements and I have the originals to go with the car (including the original cast exhaust manifolds) new spindles and disc brakes in the front - original owners manual - original bill of sale and every registration from the last 45 years - NEVER crashed or bent.
I bought this car to drive a few days a week - but when this car arrived and I took it to the local hotrod shop - they agreed with me, his car is a beautiful time capsule and while you can drive it (it drives smooth and straight - he redid the front suspension / control arms etc.) It would be a crime to drive this car too much AND you sure wouldn't want to destroy the value by swapping motors / trans etc. - This car is a beautiful piece of history - NOT a spot of rust - NOT one ding - FIT and alignment is PERFECT - the paint is FLAWLESS - the body is laser STRAIGHT - all the chrome / stainless / bumpers are done - tilt wheel - always covered and garaged - as you can see on the bill of sale - this is an undisputed REAL SS 396 - NOT a clone !
I am going to buy another el camino that I can freely drive - this one is TOO NICE.
What is left to do: the rear sway bar bushings arebeginningto crack - the dash light bulb is out on the left turn signal indicator and clock (clock works and keeps time !!) -
feel free to ask questions and ask for additional photos - if the car doesn't sell - I am going to consign this beauty to Mechum Auctions
