72 Elko will become famous soon enough
Default New member from NE Oregon

Hello everyone.

I joined a while back, but forgot to introduce myself.

I bought a 72 El Camino Custom that came with the factory running 350 in it, as well as, a complete new .60 over 383 stroker motor (393 ci) that I got to put together. I just got a set of (4) Western Turbine 15 x 7 wheels for it yesterday.

I'm just waiting for my autobody buddy to get his shop ready for me to bring it over so we can do all the bodywork and paint on it. It had a factory vinyl top from the factory, but previous owners over the years let water get under it, so I ordered a brand new roof skin and lower rear window patch panel for it.

I'm thinking a nice metallic red with black SS stripes will look nice on it.

It was that Golden Brown color from the factory, and I'm not too fond of that color though.

I hope to learn lots of good info here and hopefully meet other Elco owners in the Washington/Oregon/Idaho areas.
