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.

2014 Chevrolet Silverado tows in new configurator, microsite

Mon, 21 Jan 2013 16:05:00 EST

Judging by your continued enthusiastic response to configurator notices, dear reader, you enjoy speccing out new cars as much as we do. Better still, there tends to be even more ways to personalize, configure and bloat theoretical MSRPs on full-size trucks as there are with more ordinary passenger cars. In addition to trim level, engine and transmission choices, truck buyers usually have to specify items like cab configuration, bed length, number of driven axles, tow packages, gear ratios and all sorts of bits and bobs.
That's why we're pleased to see the DIY specification utility for the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado come alive so soon after this week's Detroit Auto Show debut. While the configurator lacks pricing (General Motors hasn't announced numbers yet) and full options, you can still spec out your half-ton rig, and even print it out or email it to your friends. Beyond the configurator, the new model-specific site is pretty cool, too, with various videos and closer looks at the truck's new features.
The new Chevrolet pickup range won't be on dealer lots until sometime this summer, so whether you're a building contractor, an avid sportsman or just a guy or gal that loves full-size trucks, you might want to check out the link below to keep your appetite whetted. If you're more of a Sierra fan, well, it looks like you're going to have to wait a while - GMC hasn't updated its site yet.

Pushing Back: GM expanding Chevrolet into Korea, Daewoo out

Thu, 29 Apr 2010 17:32:00 EST

Chevrolet Camaro goes to South Korea - Click above for high-res image
General Motors decided several years ago to begin heavily promoting Chevrolet as its global mainstream brand even in markets where its existing brands like Opel and Daewoo were a dominant force. Today, at the Busan Motor Show in South Korea, GM Daewoo president Mike Arcamone announced that the Camaro would lead the way in GM's efforts to market Chevrolet in South Korea.
For now at least Chevrolet and Daewoo-branded vehicles will coexist in the Korean market. However, while we were in China last week GM officials told us that the Daewoo brand, which has been somewhat tainted by past quality issues, would eventually be phased out in favor of Chevrolet. When the new Aveo launches next year it will likely be badged as a Chevrolet even though GM Daewoo is in charge of engineering the car.

800k car names trademarked globally, suddenly alphanumerics seem reasonable

Tue, 01 Oct 2013 11:01:00 EST

What's in a name? This cliched phrase probably gets tossed out at every marketing meeting that happens when a new car gets its nomenclature. We know the answer, though: everything. The name of a car has all the potential to make or break it with fickle customers that are more conscious than ever about what their purchases say about them.
That's giving headaches to marketing folks across the automotive industry. "It's tough. In 1985 there were about 75,000 names trademarked in the automotive space. Today there are 800,000," Chevrolet's head of marketing, Russ Clark, told Automotive News. Infiniti's president, Johan de Nysschen, echoed Clark's sentiment, saying, "The truth of the matter is, across the world, there is hardly a name or a letter that hasn't already been claimed by one car manufacturer or another. You can go through the alphabet - A, B, C and so forth - and you will quickly see that almost all available letters are taken."
What has that left automakers to do? Get creative. In the case of Infiniti, it made the controversial move to bring all of its cars' names into a new scheme, classifying them as Q#0 for cars and QX#0 for SUVs and crossovers. So the Infiniti G, which was available as the G25 and G37, is now the Q50. The FX37 and FX50 are now the QX70.
