On the second line it should read ST 68 not 63. Lookin around on this site I have found this to be a Custom El Camino with door and window trim, original color was Grecian green with a white vynl top with saddle colored bench seat and built in Freemont, Ca.

Thanks for the replies. It's nice to know what it looked like new. It's Black on black with a red SS stripe now.
