1964 El Camino build
Have been working on it off and on for many years. I replaced or rebuilt everything in the drive train, frame, brakes, suspension, rear, engine, tranny... Had hopes to paint it myself but year after year went by and I bit the bullet and had the body done right and had it painted.
Just got it back from the body shop. Had the quarters replaced by a rust free Texas donor truck - got real lucky to have found it since no one makes repop quarters for these early models. Had a new skin installed on the rear hatch, headliner replaced and new front glass.
I bought myself a chrome buffer, trim anvil and hammer and have been restoring the trim. It's paid for itself already.
Need to install the side glass, interior and bumpers and i'll be able to finally enjoy it.
