This is a 1968 Chevrolet El Camino SS396 350 HP and 4 Speed A/C Factory Black on Black Southern California truck that still retains its original black CA license plates. The truck has 93k original miles on the numbers matching 396 shortblock. The original heads were rebuilt at one point some years ago. Original intake and exhaust manifolds. The original Muncie M20 and 12 bolt rear axle are in it; The trans has never been touched, the rear axle was disassembled a couple years back and the housing was chem stripped in preparation for powdercoat and rebuild. The installation is currently temporary in order for the truck to roll. Factory options include special code 223 black bucket seat and console interior, air conditioning, tach and gauges, power windows, and a tilt steering column.


The body is all original, straight and about 99 percent rust free. The only exception is the front fenders which I replaced due to the originals had the marker light holes welded up many years back before the truck was painted white. The fenders on it now are good original GM parts. Floors and bed are good condition and the bed is straight. Minor rust in lower back window sill, left rear floor behind driver and the lower front fender corners as usual. No evidence of ever being driven on salted roads. I am the 4th owner and the original owner is still available with many stories to tell about this truck- he and then his son owned it until around 2003.

Factory documentation includes original build sheet and the Protecto-Plate on the owner's manual.

This is not a running vehicle and will require mechanical work to bring it back to road ready. It has a Lakewood scattershield, Hurst Comp Plus shifter, a Holley carb and Mallory distributor as non-stock items. I wouldn't do anything less than a frame up on this truck, however it could be running/driving in a few weekends of work if desired.

Includes 4 of the original wheels and I found an excellent set of correct little hubcaps that are presently on it. The spare wheel is a '67 and is on the right front. Truck was built with power drum brakes.

Factory black 223 interior has a special pattern and is not reproduced as El Camino. I did find some information online that the pattern was from the Buick line although I have not pursued looking into it.

Title has been in my name for many years- I had plans for a full frame up restoration however my wife has other projects set as my priorities.

This '68 El Camino SS396 is likely a one of one that was ever built like it, and has all the essentials required to make it in the top of the list of most collectible El Caminos. 

The El Camino is basically sold as you see it in the pics. It does have new floor underlayment and padding. I do not have a windshield, gas tank or dashpad for it. I do have a front bumper and brackets and that will be installed. Bed rail trim and a few other trim pieces are included, as well as lot of parts in the bed. Non-posi carrier is holding the axles in place. More pics have been added.

A personal inspection of the El Camino is welcomed.

GM won't pay owners of recalled cars for lost value

Thu, 12 Jun 2014 16:30:00 EST

Kenneth Feinberg, the man in charge of the General Motors compensation fund dealing with the its widespread ignition switch woes, has issued an informal, two-letter response to the plaintiffs in more than 70 lawsuits seeking redress for lost resale value of their Cobalts: "No." The cases were recently combined into one, but Feinberg told The Detroit News that the fund will deal "only with death and physical injury claims," and that "perceived diminished value" will get no consideration.
ALG, the firm specializing in establishing residual values, determined that Cobalt owners had lost $300 compared to the segment competition and doesn't envision any long-term effects from the recall situation. Feinberg's statement comes in advance of public details on how the compensation fund will work and adheres to GM's long-held position on the matter. The company has already asked a judge to throw out such suits using the pre-bankruptcy defense, even as it stopped using that defense in cases of injury and death.
With plenty of potential gain from the GM suit, however, don't expect the plaintiffs to give up yet. When Toyota was sued for the same reason during the unintended acceleration debacle, it eventually settled the case for between $1 billion and $1.4 billion just to get it over with. Since the 85 law firms involved in the Toyota litigation took home more than $250 million of that total, we shouldn't expect the attorneys to give up on a GM payout, either.

Indian tuner turns Chevy Optra into Mustang 'Eleanor' replica

Fri, 03 Aug 2012 08:28:00 EST

If you are a big fan of automotive oddities, this may come as a little treat. If you are a Shelby or Mustang diehard, prepare to have your sensibilities violated.
The master fabricators at BigDaddyCustoms are the minds behind what you see above. At first, it appears to be a slightly misshapen custom Mustang, modeled after "Eleanor" from Gone In 60 Seconds, but upon further examination, something appears to be amiss. In fact, the custom shop, based in India, has created an Eleanor replica grafted upon a lowly Chevrolet Optra. While it may take a second for the Optra to ring a bell, you should recognize its badge-engineered sibling, the Daewoo Lacetti, used on Top Gear.
We don't know what star would opt for the Reasonably Priced Car in Shelby's clothing, but it's clearly someone more concerned with the aesthetic than the performance credentials of this automotive mash-up.

Pics Aplenty: Meet the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra [w/poll]

Thu, 13 Dec 2012 20:01:00 EST

Today was a pretty big day for General Motors, debuting the all-new Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra light-duty pickup trucks ahead of their official showcase at the 2013 Detroit Auto Show. And now that the dust has settled at GM's big reveal event, we've had a chance to snap dozens of photos of the new pickup pair from every angle.
We already told you the important bits earlier today (click here in case you missed it), but let's recap. Under the hood are three new engines - a 4.3-liter V6, 5.3-liter V8 and 6.2-liter V8 (you know, a version of the small-block that'll also be found under the hood of the C7 Corvette), all mated to six-speed automatic transmissions. The 2014 model year marks the return of the Z71 off-road package with Rancho shocks, front tow hooks and beefier underbody protection. Inside, there's a host of new technology and a greater focus on better quality and refinement.
Some of the nitty-gritty specifics (like engine output numbers and fuel economy) have yet to be revealed, and since we haven't driven the finished products yet, it's hard to say how these trucks will fare against rivals like the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150. For now, we can only judge these two books by their covers, and while we do like the designs of the new trucks, we Autoblog staffers are torn on exactly which one looks best.
