1969 EL Camino SS built to drive. 396 was bored 40 over and clearanced for skat stroker crank Making it 462ci, had a 6000rpm balance, , lunati cam, double roller timing chain, custom Ross racing pistons, SFI flex-plate, SFI balancer, hi-flow water pump, Holley 750 race carb, block was decked and 2 degrees on heads, stock oval port heads W/ manley stainless steel valves- 3 angle grind some porting was done. New eagle connecting rods, roller rockers,6 qt oil pan,Bowtie Overdrives 700R4 tranny with shift converter on horse shoe shifter, Huges performance ,TQ converter 3000 stall, MSD 6AL, blaster coil, both hidden in car with a coil wire pass thru connector.

eaton 3:73 gears, 12 bolt posi, Front power disc and rear drums with a vacuum reserve tank. 

Car was painted 8 years ago but only a few chips and some slight bubbling (on lower front fender and corner of door) show IF you look for them! I'd rate paint a solid 8, its PPG deep amethyst pearl, which looks like Fathom blue on deary days but on sunny days the pearl flashes a brilliant violet purple... PPL always comment on color! Bed has a textured roll-on liner that was painted same color as car.  No rust or rot, frame is rock solid, panels are straight, all bright work shines as almost new. Owner before me had new quarters and paint done. He choose to shave marker lights and "SS" badging to give it a sleeper look. He had the car for 23 years, I've had it for 5, no fire sale here I just bought a 3rd classic and can't drive them all. 
Car has ralley wheels with Mickey thompson street drag radials out back. Polished billet piston assist hood hinges, chrome, billet and stainless everywhere. ALL glass was replaced and had a light tint added prior to when I bought car.

I wish I had chosen a lower TQ converter as it being a stroker the power is there from idle. New headers didn't take heat paint well, large oil filter blocked by headers. Two choices, 1) relocation of filter, which I have kit and comes with car, or 2) short filter.
Elky is 98% done in my eyes, the personal touches you may want can still be added. Oh it runs on pump gas, engine has maybe 400 miles never tracked just local shows and cruising on weekends.  always used Zaino wax system, great stuff!

Pics and what I've mentioned are to my best knowledge, I tried to be straight up and honest, I hope someone will enjoy this car for many years. P.S. cluster was changed at some point, actual mileage unknown, DMV miss labeled miles as 608,xxx because the "tenths" of a mile was listed.

Feel free to inquire if you have questions!

I reserve the right to end auction early

Vert-A-Pac train cars kept your Chevy Vega's price in check

Fri, 01 Mar 2013 08:46:00 EST

Our apologies to those who've seen this before, but for the rest of the class, how awesome are these pictures of the Vert-A-Pac shipping system General Motors came up with to ship the Chevrolet Vega back in the 1970s? Developed along with Southern Pacific Railroad, GM was able to double the amount of Vega models it could ship by packing them into the unique storage cars vertically.
At the time, rail cars could fit 15 vehicles each, but Chevrolet was able to lower shipping costs by making it possible to ship 30 Vegas per rail car, in turn allowing the price of the Vega to remain as low as possible. Each rail car had 30 doors that would fold down so that a Vega could be strapped on, and then a forklift would come along and lift the door into place. All the cars were positioned nose down, and since they were shipped with all of their required fluids, certain aspects had to be designed specifically for this type of shipping, including an oil baffle in the engine, a special battery and even a repositioned windshield washer reservoir. See for yourself in our image gallery above.

Silverado HD, Touareg V10 TDI face off in diesel tug-of-war

Sun, 30 Dec 2012 19:01:00 EST

A couple weeks ago, we watched a Chevrolet Silverado get dominated by a Dodge Ram Heavy Duty in a fullsize pickup tug-of-war, but in that truck's defense, Chevy's Vortec gas engine was no match for the torquey Cummins turbo diesel. For our next round of vehicular tug-of-war, a Duramax-powered Silverado HD takes on Volkswagen Touareg V10 TDI.
Now, on paper, putting the Duramax V8's 365 horsepower and 660 pound-feet of torque up against the V10's 310 hp and 553 lb-ft looks like an easy win for the Bowtie, but unfortunately, this battle has a similar result as the Dodge versus Chevy video, with the Silverado smoking its tires trying to move forward as it gets pulled backwards. Put another way: YouTube 2, Chevy Silverado 0.
It just goes to show, though, that big tires, bolt-on fender flares and goofy smoke stacks don't improve your towing abilities. Besides, what did the Silverado driver expect when the Touareg V10 TDI has towed a Boeing 747 in the past?

Chevrolet donates 300 vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders

Thu, 28 Feb 2013 17:45:00 EST

Super Storm Sandy took out a lot of automobiles in its path of destruction through the Northeast last October. The number surpassed 250,000 at last count, and a few of those were owned by Chevrolet - cars either sitting on dealership lots or waiting at port to be shipped off. Rendered unsellable by the water damage inflicted by Sandy, these vehicles were facing the crusher. But Chevy didn't send them there.
Instead, Chevy had a better idea: It will be donating 300 of these vehicles damaged by Sandy to help train first responders at Guardian Centers in Perry, GA. Chevy is the official automotive partner of Guardian Centers, which is an 830-acre facility that trains first responders in disaster preparedness. Junked cars are practically a consumable commodity there, where a full-size cityscape simulator gives trainees an entire urban center in which to train for all sorts of rescue operations and disaster scenarios.
Chevy says its particular vehicles will be used "in conjunction with role players for wide area searches, traffic congestion in emergency situations, counter terrorism, public order and mass casualty exercises." While grim scenarios all, we're certainly glad there are people out there preparing for the unexpected. While a zombie apocalypse isn't officially on the list of potential disasters to prepare for, when the virus hits, we'll be hot-footing it to Perry, GA to hang with these guys and gals.
