1965 Chevrolet El Camino

There's just something unmistakably cool about this 1965 Chevrolet El Camino all dressed up in black. But beyond the show-stopping appearance, his one has some essential features that make it an anytime cruiser.Not only is black beautiful, ut when it's as glossy as this, t also is the best shade to show off this pickup's amazing body. We're not sure if this El Camino ever worked for a living, r if someone just spent a pile of cash to get this black beauty looking this straight. It has excellent gaps, mpeccable fit, nd some of the best chrome and stainless we've seen in a long time. What's even more amazing is the condition of the bed. This is often a heavily trafficked area, nd on this truck it remains smooth, traight, nd seamless. For advertising sake, here are the crossed-flag emblems on the front fenders that tell the other enthusiasts that this is no ordinary El Camino.Red just looks perfect on the inside when a car is a slick jet black on the outside. Even better, s it's the original color combination for this El Camino. In fact, he vinyl bench seat has been upgraded while still keeping the period-correct appearance. To go with this, he door panels, eadliner, nd carpets are all exceptionally fresh. The dash has lots of shiny surfaces surrounding the original instruments, hich still show clean faces and bright orange needles. An aftermarket A/C system has been neatly installed under the dash, nd thanks to a modern compressor and R134a refrigerant, t's efficient and easy to service in the future. For entertainment, here's an AM/FM/cassette that perfectly fits in with the vintage feel, hile still offering a modern digital tuner. But of course, he best music will be the sound coming from the exhaust.Just like the rest of the car, nderneath the hood is a great mix of vintage with modern touches. The motor is a 327 cubic-inch V8 from 1966, ut it was completely rebuilt less than 1,000 miles ago. During that time it was not only given the modern performance appearance pieces that they love at car shows (matte black air cleaner, lacked-out valve covers, hrome pulleys, tc.), ut it also has the performance to back it up. This restored motor was bored 0.30 over and then given a Holley carburetor, delbrock intake, ompetition roller camshaft, nd Edelbrock aluminum heads. Just to make sure all this force can hook up on any blacktop, he truck has a stout 12-bolt Positraction rear end running 4.11 gears. That kind of high rear end ratio is exceptionally great off the line, ut it often has drivers concerned about running high rpms down the highway...but you don't have to worry about that. This El Camino has been upgraded to a five-speed manual, hich means you've got an extra gear or two more than everyone else to keep everything calm when cruising. In fact, s intimidating powerful as this pickup is, t's surprising easy to tame thanks to features like power steering and front disc brakes.This is a great looking El Camino that keeps its vintage appearance right down to the original owner's manual. Still, t has the perfect upgrades in all the right places, nd the slick black paint is amaazing. You'd expect to pay plenty more for an El Camino this well done. Call now!!
