Rick A’s 1967 El Camino

Built From The Ground Up

Rick A’s 1967 El Camino

Rick’s best friend purchased the 1967 El Camino at the Daytona car show several years ago. He would work on it at his Florida house during the winter months, and Rick would go down during race season and see his progress.

Rick would help him a little in between beers and the races. Unfortunately, he passed away a few years ago. Rick offered to purchase the El Camino from his family and transport it up to CT in order to keep it in the family. They agreed, and Rick continued to work on the upgrades and maintenance. It was about 98% finished when he got it. He’s taken it to car shows and has won best in show multiple times. Rick is very proud that he was able to keep it in the family.

The 1967 El Camino has a fully built 427, aluminum heads, roller rockers, thumper cam, 700R4 trans, TCI ratchet shifter, 850 Holley, Hedman Hedders, and 3” pipes to Flowmaster mufflers.

The EL Camino is special because it’s an original big block truck with factory buckets and factory A/C. Any rust panels have been replaced and all the trim is original. The paint is Honda Agean Blue. It has American thruster wheels on 60 + 70 series radials.

Rick will keep the truck in the family forever. He plans to continue attending many car shows and cruises when the weather permits. He enjoys just going for rides whenever he can.

"My friend purchased parts from SS396.COM during the build so I continued to purchase items also."

-Rick A.
