Ken C’s 1968 El Camino

Built From The Ground Up

Ken C’s 1968 El Camino

Ken found this 1968 El Camino resting in a field with its last registration being 8 years prior, rusting away to the elements. He spent about a year on the restoration process to get it to where it is today.

Much of the El Camino had to be replaced, and extensive body work had been performed due to the hidden damage and substandard prior repair work. Ken chose to also do considerable suspension upgrades to bring this ElCo into the 21st century in terms of it’s handling performance.

The interior is entirely custom, designed and completed by Fish House Upholstery in Boise, Idaho. They specialize in using unusual materials to bring out the character of the specific vehicle.

This El Camino is equipped with the venerable 350/350 engine and transmission combination, but it also has a few tricks. It utilizes Holley fuel injection, and has a Flowmaster exhaust system, along with Dakota Digital gauges to name a few.

Ken uses this 1968 El Camino every week as both a shop truck and daily driver, depending on which of his many restomods and rustomods he feels like taking out at the time.
