History
Number 6 of my El Camino History

Purchased from 80YO retired Accountant with 82K original miles who inherited from his father when passed away (father original owner) All Original except radio (original radio received). He kept up with regular Maintenence with local mechanic. A/C previously upgraded, all in working order including cruise control, Odd the first El Camino ever purchased that cruise actually worked - surprised.

Exterior/Interior all original. Paint slightly faded as expected for that year. Seat and carpet moderately worn no holes or tears. All glass in great shape. Two minor rust spots in fender behind each rear tire.
