1967 Chevrolet El Camino
1967 Chevrolet El Camino
The El Camino was a direct challenge to Ford's Ranchero, a utility coupe dominating a previously untapped market. GM flirted with coupe-type trucks such as the Chevrolet Cameo Carrier and the GMC Suburban Carrier in 1955, but they went all-in with the El Camino for the 1959 model year. The El Camino was built on a modified Brookwood station wagon platform. The first generation didn't last long. It could have been the new flamboyant wings of full-sized Chevys or perhaps the Ranchero's hefty stake in the market, but after just 2 years and 36,409 El Caminos produced, Chevy dropped the axe on the model. After dropping the axe on the original model GM decided to bring it back in 1964 as version 2 which lasted until 1967.
We offer up for consignment, a fully restored 1967 El Camino from the bow tie company. A fresh rebuild on the 283 V8 and Powerglide transmission, new alternator, new exhaust from Flowmaster, and new brakes and drums as well as brake lines, along with plenty of other TLC that has got into this car since the consigner took it over.
Wonderfully preserved straight steel panels with well minded gaps make up this car like pickup. The Ermine White respray is very nice and deep, and has just a few very minor scratches here and there, but nothing major. Plenty of chrome trimmings lining the top of the bed and defining the cabin glass has been newly polished, also on the interior of the wheel wells, and all is in very nice mirror-like condition. Front and rear bumpers as well as the front grille present nearly new. The bed of this vehicle is lined with black trunk painted ribbed steel and has no rust or major dents. 14 inch deep dish rally wheels are on all 4 corners and are wrapped with BFG raised white lettering Radial T/A's. Keep it simple stupid, (KISS), is the rule of the design for this car which shows very nicely on its exterior.
Opening the doors you will have the pleasure of feasting your eyes on the recovered and redone interior. A shiny black vinyl for the bolsters surround wide tuck and roll black inserts, and this all presents extremely clean. Door panels are black as well, and again very clean just like the seats. The original dash sits proudly in front of the bench and is also amazingly clean. It is made up of a fine mixture of padded black vinyl, black paint, silvery anodized aluminum and a peppering of wood appliqué. All original radio, and controls and all working condition. The black vinyl headliner is nice, clean and tight with a few folds showing. Ladies and gentlemen please rise for a standing ovation for the interior!
Within a fully restored engine bay in flat black, sits a gleaming red/orange GM block and valve cover painted 283ci V8 which has very recently been rebuilt, and it looks the part. There is a silver cast Edelbrock intake manifold on top and on top of that is an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor. On back is a 2-speed Powerglide automatic transmission, which throws power to a 10-bolt rear axle. Supple black like new hoses and wires snake their way around this mill, and an open flat black Edelbrock air cleaner cover crowns this jewel.
You say showroom, I say beautiful, and either of them would be dead on for the condition of this undercarriage. It is painted a beautiful black with no rust in sight. A new exhaust courtesy Flowmaster is gleaming against the black floor pans and all mechanicals underneath including the front independent coil spring suspension, and rear 4 link with new coil springs. Drum brakes are on all 4 corners and all newly installed.
A pleasure to drive, very smooth running and a very nice ride. This car had good acceleration and came to a stop nicely with no pull. A good job on all the rebuilds and cosmetics.
Taking the time to do things correctly was the mantra of this restorer/consigner. All you now have to do is buy it, and get in and turn the key, and you will have at your fingertips a car/truck that is definitely a classic and spot on for a good looking year production model.
