1967 Chevrolet El Camino Description

This is my rust free Arizona, 1967 El Camino, that I've been using for a shop truck for the past three and a half years. It started out its life in Yuma Arizona, and then was in Tucson Arizona until about 3 years ago, and it has been in Phoenix ever since. It is very clean and rust free, the patina paint is a faux patina. It was the look I wanted for my shop truck. All body panels, floor panels, everything is super solid and rust free. It has a throttle body injected 350, with a 700 R4 Transmission. It drives, shifts, and brakes flawlessly. I have never noticed it smoke, or burn oil. It has front wheel disc, with cross drilled rotors. Has bucket seats with a 67 console and shifter. The console is just sitting there in the pictures, and will have to be attached to the floor.Tilt steering column, electric windows. It has manual steering and brakes. The body is pretty straight, but it does have some dents and dings that you would find on a shop truck. It adds to the motif. Again, I repeat. No rust! All the gauges seem to work correctly. If you fill the gas tank up to the top, you will get a smell of gas for a little while, until it runs down a little bit. The tires only have about 2,000 miles on them. And those are period correct torque thrust D mag wheels made in 1970. I was given almost all the trim from the previous owner, although I have never inventoried it. It is in a cardboard tube. From what I remember what he told me, the only trim that he said was missing, was the front of the bed curved trim pieces. They are available on eBay. I cannot guarantee, that other trim pieces might not be there. The dash pad is missing. Also available on eBay. The glass is all good, except the windshield has a small crack about the size of a dollar bill above on the passenger side. I do believe this is an original AC car, but there is no air condition hooked up. The heater is not hooked up. This has never been a concern of mine since I am in Arizona. There is a compressor on the TBI engine, and there is the air condition control panel in the cab. The speedometer was working fine when I first got it, but it stopped working since. I checked the cable to the transmission and it's hooked up. I think it might be disconnected behind the dash, but my hands are too fat to get back there, so I can't swear by it. TCM for the engine is just sitting on the passenger floor. The bracket is included to mount it wherever you want. I have never had a problem with this El Camino for the three and a half years I've owned it. It's been a pleasure to own. But now it's time to part ways. I just have too many cars, and this one is getting rotated out. Obviously with a car that's 50 years old, anything can happen at any time, and is being sold as is. Please look at the pictures carefully, and ask any questions before you bid. Thanks for your interest, and I'm sure if you're the winning bidder you'll be very happy with this El Camino. The car is also for sale locally, so if the right offer is made, and it's above the high bidder, I reserve the right to end auction early.

I will be adding interior pictures this weekend.

I will also be having a video on YouTube of this car running and driving.

The following is the information that was given to me by the previous owner, three and a half years ago:

The radiator is a Champion radiator bought off of eBay. It is designed to use the original mounting. and the outputs are designed for LSX and Vortec V8 engines.

The front disk brakes are off of a 1972 Monte Carlo. Since the swap I have replaced the rotors, calipers, and caliper brake hoses.

The front upper A-arms, lower A-arms, and front sway bar were powder coated several years ago, and the ball joints, bushings, and shocks were replaced at that time.

The front springs are the lightest springs available for a '67 El Camino, and I cut about an inch and a half off

The master cylinder and (adjustable) proportioning valve are from Classic Performance Products, and are less than a year old.

The driveshaft is relatively new, and was made to be the right length for the engine/transmission combo.

The rear end is a stock 3.36 10-bolt (non-posi) out of a '67 Chevelle. It works fine, with no noise. I changed the fluid in it when I installed it a year ago. The upper control arms are Hotchkis adjustable control arms. They are set to 12-3/4", the correct length for '67.

The rear springs are the lightest rear springs I could get for the El. The springs on the floor of the cab are the next higher spring rate.

The rear lower control arms and sway bar have been powder coated.

The gas tank is new, and has been modified to install a Tanks Inc. PA-series sending unit. The gas tank also has a new, stock, 3/8" fuel sending unit for the fuel gauge. The fuel line out of the stock sending unit is plugged off.

There are two fuel lines that run to the engine compartment for pressure and return. They are 3/8" aluminum tubing back to just in front of the rear wheel, then it is rubber hose the fuel filter and fuel pump.

The fuel filter is mounted on a metal frame that I built. The frame is mounted to two tangs on the frame that were welded to the frame for a class III hitch years

The gauges are factory original. The speedometer isn't steady at speed. It probably has a rough spot on the drum from sitting for long periods of time.

The shifter is a stock automatic floor shifter.

The seats are Procar Scat seats. They have replaceable mounts. The El originally came with a bench seat, and I installed the buckets a while back.

The loose heater is also from a '67 Chevelle. The heater cables are a mixture of standard heater and A/C cables.

There is a new head liner behind the seats.

There are A/C ducts in the container with all of the extra parts. They are Vintage Air reproductions.

The heater is from a '67 with a new Spectre (aluminum) heater core. The heater core didn't seem to fit correctly, but it works. You can see on the firewall that there are patch panels where the original A/C parts go. You can remove the panels to install original A/C .

I replaced the body bushings with Energy Suspension
