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.

Chevy Camaro is a good sport, wishes Ford Mustang Happy 50th

Tue, 15 Apr 2014 15:45:00 EST

It was 1966 when Chevrolet launched its challenger to the wildly successful Ford Mustang, the Camaro. While the competition between the two brands was already healthy, the arrival of the Camaro set off one of the most intense, model-to-model rivalries in the industry.
That competitive spirit hasn't stopped Chevy and the Camaro from wishing Ford's iconic muscle car a Happy 50th Birthday as the Ford's April 17 anniversary rolls around. These two cars have been linked over the years, and while the rivalry took a break for a few years in the 2000s, today's competition between the Camaro and Mustang is as fierce as it's ever been.
You might recall that this friendliness when it comes to major milestones isn't too rare. Ford put on quite a display for General Motors' hundredth anniversary back in 2008. As the Camaro's fiftieth birthday approaches in 2016, we wouldn't be surprised to see the Mustang sending its best wishes to its Bowtie rival.

There once was a time when Daewoo was one of the biggest companies in South Korea. It was larger than both LG and Samsung, and second only to Hyundai. But these days the name is all but gone.
