Description

Lot #80 - Original SS El Camino. It is not a numbers matching car. It was a 4-speed car. When I got the car, it was body only. This car comes from Hereford, TX, in the panhandle and had very little surface rust. All the sheet metal was good - the floor pans and the bed and all the body metal. The car was all there except the motor and transmission. I got the car in 1998 and stored it for 5 years. The car went through a 3-year restoration. This car was taken completely apart. The body was put on a rotisserie for doing all of the underside work. All parts on the frame were taken apart. The rear end, front/rear springs, suspension parts, body and the body parts were stripped to bare metal, primed and painted. Most of the chrome is new and all of the interior is new. It has new bumpers, wheels and tires. The transmission is a '69 Turbo 400 automatic and the motor is a big block 427 with a 10.25:1 compression ratio with racing pistons, a steel crank, a 540 solid lift cam, oval port heads machined for 219 intake, 188 exhaust ported with a single plane intake and a 750CFM carburetor. The car was originally brown, but was painted blue and the black vinyl top came with it, as did the bucket seats, and power steering. It has a 5800 redline RPM which leads me to believe it was an L78 car. The driver side door was replaced at one time which leads me to believe it was hit on that side at one time. The car was finished in 2/07 and has been driven less than 500 miles since restoration. It was at the Houston '07 Autorama Show and placed Third.
