General Information

El Camino
Shadow Gray
Super Sport 454
Bought from (retired) Dallas dealer Glenn Hickman in '98. He had bought it that year in a Tulsa auction and brought to his (former) showroom/shop on Harry Hines Blvd where I found and bought... Had its California title, blue/gold letter plates, aftermarket steel wheels. (did not think to make copy of Cal. title but think it is from Sacramento area). No known build sheet.
1970 El Camino (Shadow Gray)


Correct Holley 780 (vacuum), with 'California specs' per Holley air horn code/numbers. GM #3967479. Original low-rise LS-6 manifold has a cracked mounting 'ear'(not yet welded) as had put an Edelbrock AirGap intake on years ago. Edelbrock manual fuel pump. Stock ex.manifolds, aftermarket 2.5 inch pipes. Solid lifters of course. Both heads and block codes are in "chronological order" as desired.
Bench seat. 4-spd Hurst shifter, w/o console. 80/20 loop stock black carpet. Guage cluster does not light up. Delco AM radio, w/ "Stereo 8-track" which still works.
Cowl induction (works). Aftermarket molding around bed. Low black stripes run the distance between wheels. Former owner painted grill gray, not black. Several paint scratches as it must've (only) been partially restored before coming to Tx. Doors shut w/ short, strong 'click'. (Came w/ 2(not 4) T-3 headlights)
LS-6 (original) motor. M-22 trans. CRV numbers both on front of block, and on axle housing (3.31). When I removed trans. to have shop replace the (formerly) cracked Muncie case, shop verified for me that it was the straighter cut "rock crusher" gears inside! While out, decided to install a Lakewood steel protective bell-housing.
Stock, including aftermarket (late 90s) rear air shocks.
Wheel and Tire
Vintique brand of stock-look steel wheels and caps.
