El Camino 1965

Title Status --
Exterior Color Cortez Silver
Interior Color Black


This 1965 Chevrolet El Camino is one of those cars that brings a smile to everyone's face. It's a practical utility vehicle based on one of the most potent muscle cars of the era. And this one is complete with a potent small block, four-on-the-floor, and a quite a nice shine. So now that you've seen the price on this restored El Camino, you might not have enough time to finishing reading this before it's gone.

There was a quality investment in the El Camino, and you can tell it from the moment you see how straight the sheetmetal is. The Cortez Silver paint is a great GM color, and since this was an upgrade later in life, you get the kind of terrific shine that lets the light show off the great looking body. The bumpers are bright; the doors close with authority; and the weatherstripping feels fresh. So it has the look of a quality vintage package. And the 18-inch polished Ridler alloys go nicely with this El Camino's shine while also hinting at some upgraded power.

Your first impression of the interior is that it's 1965 all over again. The work on this Chevy included switching the color to black so that it goes better with the exterior silver while still retaining the factory specs. It's also setup to feel quite sporty with the bucket seats, a dual-spoke sports steering wheel, and a Hurst floor shifter. As you start to look around, you'll also spot well-integrated upgrades. The handy AutoMeter tach is integrated into the factory gauge cluster. And while the factory AM radio is on display, your real driving music comes from the upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with Bluetooth hidden in the glovebox.

This is the era when Chevrolet's 327 cubic-inch small block was a dominant force, and so it's great to see it so well presented under the hood. Black Chevrolet valve covers, a matching air topper, and upgraded pulleys give it a thoughtful presentation. Plus, it has all the right upgrades you want, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, MSD ignition, and an aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans. The headers add power while contributing to the rumble of the dual exhaust, and you get full control over the power and soundtrack thanks to the M21 close-ratio four-speed manual transmission. The 12-bolt rear end, boxed trailing arms, and rear sway bar give you a SS-style strong rear setup. And you also have power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and the grip of modern performance tires. So this El Camino is a looker that also loves to drive.

Sleek and powerful is an awesome way to enjoy vintage motoring. And all this desirability is at quite a nice price. Call today!!!
