Muscle car from days past... - June 15, 2012, 05:48 PM

Local fellow has a 3rd generation 1970 El Camino SS-396 for sale.

Original Engine down to the air cleaner. Original wheels, Munice 4-speed trans. Been painted once in 2001 when the current owner bought it and paint still looks great. Love those cowl induction hoods. Interior is all original and immaculate. Body and under carriage are 90% or better.

First owner had it from new to 1978, 2nd owner from then to 2001, and the current owner from 2001 to now. Garaged most of it's life.

Sure brought back lots memories of the fun I had in my '70 Chevelle SS.

Help me!!!! I'm weak... I do not need this vehicle. Pray for me that it will be gone before my will to resist fades further.

I just don't know that I could stand to be one of those old dudes you see riding around in this era muscle car. They truly are a young mans vehicle, and I ain't that young.

The first time my youngest boy saw an El Camino he decided that was what he wanted as his first car. I asked why and he said it was a CAR, but he could put his dirtbike in it. LOL

I always think of this movie now when I see an El Camino.

Where is it and how much!
If you don't I will!
Does this look like the face of a man who would kid about an El Camino?

Well it ain't a "Barn Find". Fellow knows what he has. He's asking $17,500 which is in the right ball park for asking price for the age and model in very good but un-restored condition. All body panels are straight but I didn't go over it with a fine tooth comb. Some of the body joints were off a bit. Though in a half-serious look around I did not find any evidence of prior major damage.

I'd still bet dollars to donuts it has some bondo work given the age of the vehicle and only painted versus a full restore, just don't know how much. I'm guessing not a lot...

If get serious I'll spend much more time going over it before parting with any cash. If I decide to pass and you're interested I'll shoot you some pics and a contact#.

Yes you do need it. EVERYONE needs a classic muscle car. The minute I have enough disposable income, I am getting one. The old saying "They dont make 'em like they used to" definitely rings true in this case.

Yeah... Hindsight is 20/20. When I was young they were a dime a dozen.

'70 Chevelle SS sold it for $1500
'68 Mustang - totaled in multi car crash.
'71 Camaro - Got paid $100 to have it hauled off.
'70 Nova - Wrapped it around a phone pole.

I know right!? It kills me to think of how common those kinds of cars were back then. I would kill for even a STOCK Chevelle, Nova, Impala, etc. I have a little coffee table book on the end table right here next to the couch called Muscle Cars: The Legend Lives On

This is the same color and condition as the one I'm looking at. Only difference is the one I'm looking at has the optional Vinyl roof and has the orginal chevy rally wheels. Ran the vin and cowl numbers to night and everything matches.



I half hope I don't see it sitting out in the guys front yard on the way to work tomorrow...

My dad had an El Camino (can't recall what year) the 454 SS. He had put Corevette side pipes on it and it was bright red and kept super clean. Loved that car. Was sad when he traded it for a truck and some guns.
