Looks like it’s a butternut yellow, saddle interior, built in Fremont. Next I’m going to be checking engine codes.

progress has little to do with speed, but lots to do with direction

Re: 1969 El Camino SS

Fremont car will most likely have the build sheet on top of the fuel tank.

Re: 1969 El Camino SS

Checked the engine stamp today. It is a 69 396, but from a 69 Camaro. At least it’s period correct! I was thinking, please don’t let it be a truck 454 haha!

Seats and carpet have been redone, otherwise, original looking!
