A work in progress...
History I bought it on EBay and it had it shipped from its California Birthplace and home to SC. It had a few more issues than advertised. There was no coolant in the engine when it rolled off the hauler and had a serious engine water loss problem. Then I found water inside when it rained. New door and window weather strips, resealed the windshield and now the back glass.
Exterior
Doing minor body work, prepping for paint. I've added a hitch because this is a casual driver/hauler.

Interior
1983 Camaro Bucket seats, 1970's Camaro console, Custom built gauge panel featuring an Autometer Speedo, Bosch Mini Tach.

Drivetrain
Original Turbo 350 trans connected to original 2.73 gears.
I have a Muncie M20 ready to rebuild, pedals and linkage to convert it and looking for a 3.23 posi to make it more fun to drive.

Under the Hood
Currently the original 305 with fresh top end rebuild, Q-Jet on top of a 1982 Z-28 intake, 3 row aluminum radiator, Factory AC, full dual exhaust with Flow Masters.
I have built and ready to install a 1965 small journal 327, bored and balanced, Dart Iron Eagle Heads, Bowtie intake, 650 Spreadbore DP Holley and an L-79 350 HP cam, thus the name L79Camino.

Suspension
Stock with Air shocks on rear. New Moog Ball joints and Center link ready to install.

Wheel and Tire
Enkei Aluminum wheels with 235-60-14 white letter radials
