Between new parts, labor, and other miscellaneous upgrades, project cars can very quickly rack up some pretty steep bills. Such is the case with this 1968 Chevrolet El Camino SS, which is offered with a long list of goodies, all for a significantly reduced price.
This particular ’68 Chevrolet El Camino SS is a California car which received a full ground-up restoration. The hard, crisp exterior lines are covered in Corvette Yellow paint, which is complemented by black stripes that run the circumference around the vehicle. The bodywork and trim are show-quality level stuff, and it looks good riding on a set of Cragar wheels polished to a brilliant finish.
This Chevrolet El Camino is also equipped with a 454 V8 engine, which is topped by a set of Demon tri-power carburetors and aluminum heads. There’s also an aluminum radiator to keep it cool, plus a variety of polished engine parts to add to the underhood glitz. The 454 breathes through a custom exhaust system and mates to the 700 R4 automatic transmission with overdrive.
This ’68 Chevrolet El Camino is also equipped with a custom air ride suspension setup, while a set of custom drilled and slotted disc brakes slow it at all four corners.
The cabin space is equally well upgraded, and sports a black upholstery treatment for the custom bucket seats, carpeting, door panels, and dash. The black color motif is complemented by silver for the dash inlay and center console, with the former fitted with a full suite of custom gauges. Luxury features include cruise control and a custom stereo.
All told, there’s more than $100,000 invested into the 1968 Chevrolet El Camino, as evidenced by a thick stack of itemized receipts. Now, the whole shebang is up for sale by Volo Auto Sales in Illinois, listed at $52,998.
