Mark found this 1966 El Camino on the new car dealer lot in December 1966. She is a family member who has tackled children and grandchildren. It cost $1300.00 brand new then, her value today is no amount of money could buy her, it would be like selling a child.
The 1966 El Camino has a 392ci, the original 327ci 375hp is sitting in his workshop. The original Muncie 4 speed and differential are installed. The carrier in the diff was changed to a positraction.
The special thing about her is the interior. Though it has some original stuff there are also mods. The instrument cluster was removed, and he built a cooler using Autometer gauges. He also built a center console. He could not afford a store-bought one as he does not have a Fort Knox to buy one.
She is due for another restoration. He will keep what she has now, add air condition and build something to put behind the seats.
