You can get a classic 1967 Chevrolet El Camino with small-block power, four-on-the-floor, and a great red on black presentation – all for under $20K?! So you can keep reading for all the details, but you already know this one is going fast.
The great thing about an El Camino was that it was supposed to be adaptable for everything. This was the one vehicle that could go to church on Sunday, and run a bale of hay from the fields on Monday. Along the way, something else got added into the mix...attitude. With El Caminos getting caught up in the muscle car war that was consuming its Chevelle sibling, they became the baddest truck/car around. 1967 was a particularly mean-looking year for the El Camino as the fenders were given aggressive overhangs that enhances the sleekness of the sheetmetal. The red paint adds to this sporty presentation, and you can tell from the uniform shine that the panels are looking quite nice. This intimidating look is continued on the wheels with the iconic 17-inch Cragar SS units. Even the truck bed has been given a dose of attitude with a tough dark liner paint.
The interior is so deep, dark, and black, that the Hurst cue ball shifter is like a beacon in the middle calling out for you to get in and drive. The black vinyl on the bench seat is in fine condition, and the door panels, dash, and carpeting reinforce this midnight cruiser attitude. All of this black makes the chrome touches on the extra-long dash really stand out. From the moment you slip behind the Momo sports steering wheel and spot the Sun Super Tach on the steering column, you know this El Camino means business.
Just like the rest of the car, underneath the hood is a great mix of vintage with performance upgrades. The motor is a 283 cubic-inch block from around this car’s era. But now the V8 has been upgraded with plenty of bright components like the air topper, valve covers, and alternator. More importantly, it’s running strong with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock Performer intake, Champion aluminum radiator, and long tube headers that add even more power as they contribute to the rumble of the stainless dual exhaust. Best of all you have full control over this V8’s powerband and its growl thanks to the four-speed manual transmission. But as intimidating as this pickup is, it’s surprising easy to tame thanks to features like the Chevelle’s easy riding suspension, power steering, and the grip of modern ZR-rated tires.
This is the perfect El Camino to enjoy as both a classic and a functional pickup. And when you can do it all at an affordable price, this turnkey bad boy won’t be hanging around here long. Call today!!!
