Description:

1965 Chevrolet El Camino

This 1965 El Camino I have had for awhile collecting parts and done some work on it like installing complete one piece floor pan, quarter panels, outer rear wheel houses, primed and blocked straight whole cab and reprimed (pretty much ready for scuff and shoot “paint”) a pair of front fenders I purchased already in prime, there are two hoods ( one about a 2.5 hr. dent in front center and the other has a small rust hole around an inch big “ easy fix”)There are 3 pairs of doors( 1 pair in real good shape, the other 2 pair I don’t remember but must not be too bad, I was going to fix the worse for the car and sell the rest after I got all I needed from the others) trying to remember that there may be 3 tailgates, but seems like there is one repairable one and there is one I have already put a new skin on. There are 2 10 bolt rear ends pretty sure the one in the car is near trashed “the axle will slide out pushing the car around if not careful”. I have a back glass and windshield in the house along with lower pair of rocker mounding, hood mounding, brand new glove box liner, and a couple of other items “that I don’t remember”. I purchased used front grill, headlight bezels and some other front mauling pieces that are in pretty nice shape, if a remember right I think there was one small piece for on edge of front of one of the fenders I was thinking of straightening out and using it anyway. There is pretty much all the moldings in the addic “ the mounding that go around the top of the bed have I was thinking I would dolly them and use bedliner on them and the bumpers could be straightened and rechromed or bedliner on them too “I have done that before on a car and looks pretty awesome” The 283 SBC ad the 2 speed transmission will need rebuilt. I know I am about to miss something but the extra rear end and extra front suspension pices come from the other 1965 El Camino sitting next to the prime red one that is the blue one, anyway both cars you can have or you can take what ever you want from the blue one and leave it “it is pretty much stripped I think “oh! I think maybe still a steering colum and dash pieces in it but there is a steering colum and I don’t know what in the attic the almost new SS Cragger wheels and tires are for the car too... “I didn’t have them on another car for long “200 to 1,000 miles” there two or three + of most all moldings so at least good enough for a nice driver car, with some rebuild kits, some paint and some later would make a real nice car. The frame has been out and the body is just sitting on the frame “it is the original frame and in very good condition” the motor and tranny are from the donor car but same thing as the original car came out with “ I don’t know about matching numbers though.mileage is not actualAgain it could make a pretty nice car, I just have too many projects and not enough time and kinda burnt out after doing auto body for nearly 40 years,
I am sorry I lied “ there are 8 doors or 4 pairs, and starting to remetail light lenses may be questionable and there is no seat but from what you could get out of all the extra parts could pay for materials, etc. to make a nice car...No reserve ! Thank You...

I did mention the prime red body is sitting on a very nice frame not bolted to the frame but frame does have suspension so it will roll, there is a set of junky wheels and tire you can use to roll it or use the cragger wheels and tires.

I do good work and have a very good reputation and did a very nice job putting the new complete floor, quarter panels, and outer rear wheel houses, so it could be said “Rust Free” I used POR15 on any questionable surface rust and that stuff really stops rust dead.
