Default 1967 El Camino done right!

Item Location (City/State):Ferndale, WA

Price: $45,000 obo

This 1967 Chevrolet El Camino spent time in Colorado before I acquired the car in 2009 and refurbished it. Work included repairing body damage, repainting the exterior in green, fitting Recaro bucket seats upholstered in black cloth, modifying the suspension and brakes, and installing an overbored 454ci Chevrolet V8 mated to a three-speed automatic transmission, a Gear Vendors overdrive, and a limited-slip differential. A Upol Raptor spray-in liner was applied to the underside as well as the bed along with a CPP disc brake conversion and pro-touring suspension kit, 17″ Vintage Wheel Works alloy wheels, Holley fuel-injection and ignition systems, Hedman headers, and a fabricated exhaust. This El Camino is offered with a Fall 2010 issue of Chevelle magazine featuring the car along with a cover, refurbishment photos, receipts, and a Washington title in the seller’s name.

The car was stripped and dents were repaired before a replacement front fender and floor pans were installed and the body was repainted in Dodge F8 Green. The cab trim was reportedly polished, and replacement headlights and chrome bumpers were fitted along with a Detroit Speed Selecta-Speed windshield wiper kit, refinished signal housings, a black spray-in bedliner, replacement front and rear glass, and a reproduction grille, taillight lenses, and stainless bed trim.

Vintage Wheel Works 17″ wheels are mounted with 245/45 front and 275/35 rear Nitto NT555G2 tires. Stopping power is provided by a CPP disc brake conversion with red-finished calipers squeezing 13″ front and 11″ rear rotors as well as a Wilwood master cylinder with a proportioning valve. The suspension was modified using a CPP pro-touring kit including a quick-ratio steering box, front and rear control arms, sway bars, coilovers, rear lowering springs, and drop spindles in addition to Ridetech billet tie-rod adjusters and replacement body mounts.
Adjustable Recaro bucket seats are trimmed in black upholstery and accompany a replacement dash, headliner, carpets, and door panels. The inside of the cab was lined with Dynamat sound-deadening insulation and fitted with an American Autowire Highway 22 wiring harness, a Lokar throttle pedal, and an overdrive control unit mounted to the left of the steering column. The radio opening was filled with a weld-in panel and no radio is installed.

A three-spoke steering wheel frames a horizontal-sweep 120-mph speedometer flanked by auxiliary gauges displaying fuel level, amperage, coolant temperature, and oil pressure. A Holley Sniper digital controller is mounted below the dash. The five-digit odometer shows 66k miles, approximately 350 of which were added after the refurbishment. True mileage is unknown.

The engine bay features a smoothed firewall, and the replacement 454ci V8 was reportedly .040″ overbored and fitted with the following components:
• 9.5.1 compression pistons
• Replacement bearings, push-rods, oil pump, timing chain, valves, springs, and roller-rockers
• Isky Racing hydraulic flat-tappet camshaft
• Hydraulic flat-tappet lifters
• Holley Sniper EFI System with in-tank pump and pickup
• Holley Sniper Hyper Spark ignition system
• Weiand intake and Edelbrock air cleaner
• Mighty Mouse PCV catch-can
• Lokar throttle cable
• Hedman ceramic-coated long-tube headers
• Proform GM one-wire 100-amp alternator
• Dedenbear WP2 electric water pump
• PRC aluminum radiator
• SPAL electric cooling fan
• JEGS Prostarter, billet fuel pump block-off plate, and distributor bracket
Power is delivered to the rear wheels through a TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, a Gear Vendors overdrive unit, and 12-bolt rear axle that was reportedly rebuilt and fitted with a Detroit Tru-Track differential and a 3.73:1 gear ratio. The transmission is said to have received a 2,500-rpm stall torque converter and a Lokar electric kick-down in addition to a replacement flex plate and transmission cooler. The chassis was stripped and coated with POR-15 chassis coat, and a fabricated 2.5” to 3” exhaust with Magnaflow 18” mufflers was fitted.
