General Information

El Camino
Ermine white
SS 396
This was my grandfathers car. He taught me how to drive with this car and I fell in love. It was a Arizona vacation house car that was only used a few times a year. My grandfather left me the car when he past. I've replaced almost every nut and bolt on this car, cleaned every ounce of rust and painted everything myself. I've been a automotive tech for 30 years and have built every ounce of this car myself. Still have a ways to go

Factory bucket, seats center console. Interior is sky blue. I changed it up slightly. I changed the carpet and center console to Black to brake up all the blue. It was just SO MUCH BLUE. I was able to paint all the jams and insides of the doors
Still a work in progress. Was painted once before and they did a horrible job. Car had no rust super clean thank to living in Arizona. I pulled the body off and completed a full frame restoration. I wanted to media blast the body but money started getting tight. Car started to sit waiting for the time that I would have The money to blast the body. I couldn't stand the car sitting so I started putting it back together. Body work and paint will just need to wait
