This El Camino was parked since 2010 as an ongoing project that the owner never finished
I pulled the motor out, pulled the heads to see the condition & was surprised the engine was new & had never been fired. Looks to be a crate engine but may be a rebuild. Heads are also redone & have not been fired up either. Below is what I’m including with the El Camino.
Body: Body is very straight. Minor rust. Passenger floor will need a patch. It had vinyl roof & will need repair, I was going to buy a roof skin (under $300.00 new). Frame rails are in great shape. I have the trim for the rear hatch.
Interior: I have not had a chance to clean it up but seat, door panels & dash pad in good condition. Will need to fix floor board & install new carpet. Will also need new headliner when roof repaired. Doors open & shut solid. Door bushings in good condition.
Suspension: Rear has new blue springs, I just purchased a set of KYB shocks (not installed yet). I will include a new Powertrax No-Slip Traction System I purchased for it. It does have a 10 bolt 28 spline rear end. Front suspension will have to be totally redone. Will also need to go over the brakes, they are low but it does stop.
Motor: 350 4 bolt main, std bore. New camshaft & lifter kit Dur @ 50 224 x .465 Lift Hyd FT. New oil pan w/ Felpro 1 pc blue gasket. New double timing chain & sprockets, New timing chrome timing cover. Painted Edelbrock aluminum 2101 Intake Manifold. Rebuilt Holley 650 cfm carb. Mallory ignition & coil.

New pushrods. New stainless steel engine bolt kit. New Powermaster mini starter. New HEDMAN headers. Used power steering pump & bracket.
New 3 row aluminum radiator with 2 electric fans w/ relay & wiring kit. New GM performance valve covers.
Transmission is a Turbo Hyd 400 w/ stock converter, was told it was good. I was going to eventually have it rebuilt.
