1965 Chevrolet El Camino
This 1965 Chevrolet El Camino is one of those cars that brings a smile to everyone's face. A practical utility vehicle based on one of the most potent muscle cars of the era, complete with a numbers-matching small block, cool subtle ghost flames, A/C interior, and an upgraded four-speed overdrive transmission. And now that you've seen the price on this restored El Camino, you might not have enough time to finishing reading this before it's gone.
There was a serious investment in the El Camino, and you can tell it from the moment you see how straight the sheetmetal is. But there's much more here than going over half a century being treated with respect. During the restoration it was given a professional application of its factory-correct Mist Blue, but with this modern application also came a cool upgrade to subtle ghost flames in the hood. Now you have the spirit of originality that's been upgraded to a terrific clearcoat. Even the truck bed shines with a look-at-me quality. This transformation would not be complete without the chrome and stainless trim looking immaculate on everything from the wide grille, to the mirror-like bumpers, to the half-moon wheel covers.
The moment you open the door, you'll swear it's 1967, and that's for a very good reason. The complete restoration included putting the factory interior back to period-correct spec. The factory-correct fawn split-bench has the kind of cushioning that feels like no one else ever sat here before. The door panels, carpeting, dash, and steering wheel are all in a coordinating hue. And speaking of the wheel, the dual-spoke factory unit has an intricate design, and it gives you a clear view to the full gauge panel where everything works even the clock! Keen eyes will notice a few upgrades, like the retro-style radio that disguises a modern digital AM/FM tuner and cassette player. And the air conditioner is a period-correct Sears unit (cool, right?) that's still pumping out ice-cold air.
The engine is the original, numbers-matching 327 cubic-inch V8 that has been well-dressed for duty in the El Camino's engine bay. Satin black inner fenders are a great background for the Chevy Orange block and valve covers. Add in the polished air topper and all the right decals, and it's an award-worthy presentation. The V8 inhales deeply through a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with authority through the stainless dual exhaust. More than just look tidy and powerful, this EL Camino was upgraded to be a true driver. You have a four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive, power steering, and an aluminum radiator to keep it all running cool even when you're in traffic with the A/C pumping.
Lovers of originality will like to know that all the major components that were replaced come with the sale, including the wheels, radiator, Powerglide transmission, and so much more.
