This auction is for my 1965 El Camino. I am the third owner of this car, the first two owners are in the same family. The car is from California and then Oklahoma. I have owned the car for 12 years. The car has had a complete body on restoration and has 18,xxx miles since the restoration. The car is always kept inside and covered with two California custom car car covers. It has been pampered for 12 years. here are the details:
BODY: No rust ever, all original body panels and fenders. All glass and upholstery were removed for the resto, interior insulated and all new interior installed. The paint is Glassurit German black with House of Kolor Tangelo pearl base coat/clear coat. The paint has been color sanded and buffed and is extremely smooth and glossy. Look at the pics of the body panels, lazer straight and smooth. The hood and cowl induction are steel, not fiberglass.

The wheels are Billet Specialities fast lanes in 17".
GENERAL: This El Camino is super nice. It rides and handles really well, cornering is remarkably stable and precise. The best feature of this car is how tight it is and how well it drives. Fly in and drive it home, it is stone reliable. All the chrome has been replated, every piece of stainless has been polished. The car has factory air and works great. The car has no issues, it has been driven 18,xxx miles since all the work was performed and does have some minor signs of use. You really have to look hard to see flaws, but it is not perfect. In some photos the orange pearl looks "yellowish" it is not, pearl paint is difficult to capture with a home digital camera. All paint on this car is super nice. I am 66 years old and have been having fun with cars for a long time...this is a good one. Check my feedback, bid with confidence, no dissappointments. I have many more pics....if you want more let me know. Good luck bidding.
