The 1966 Chevrolet El Camino is a practical utility vehicle based on one of the most potent muscle cars of the era. So it's great to see some Super Sport-style upgrades on this example while also keeping plenty of stylish originality, like the year-correct V8.
This El Camino was upgraded to red later in life, and that means a more recent investment that gives off quite a nice shine. And as the light rolls across this car/truck the uniform gloss also highlights how straight the panels .....
are. There's traditional big chrome bumpers, delicate trim, and the unmistakable crisp lines shared with the '66 Chevelle. Plus, the SS hood and the 15-inch Rally wheels on the stylish redline tires give this one an extra dose of attitude.
The sea of red continues inside. There has been a solid investment here, and you can feel it in the freshness of the major pieces, right down to the dash pad. Plus, you get more of that desirable Super Sport style with the bucket seats with a center console in-between. And all this red is broken up nicely by plenty of bright trim everywhere from the dash to the floor shifter. The whole inside has a time capsule-like appearance, and that even extends to the details like the dual-spoke steering wheel and the AM radio that's still on display. However, if you feel the need for upgrades, there's already provisions for R134a air conditioning.
When you open the hood, the bold orange of Chevy's famous small bock is radiating within the darkness of the engine bay. This is a year-correct 327 cubic-inch unit that's believed to be original to this El Camino. You can see they made nice investments in maintenance to keep it looking tidy and stock - even the washer refill bottle is in place! In fact, the only real non-factory standout is the aluminum radiator. And those who like driving their classics are quite happy to see that. And the way this one fires up and runs really reaffirms the quality driver feeling. You even have an automatic transmission and power steering to make trips easy.
