Re: 1968 El Camino estimate

Nice looking daily driver. If you want one with a v-8, buy one with a v-8. Nice original cars need care takers. Dont be that guy who changes a survivor.

Re: 1968 El Camino estimate

I saw this El Camino advertised somewhere recently and I don't think he even wanted $10k for it.

Re: 1968 El Camino estimate

Picked it up! Itís just as I thought. Iím liking the color more and more. The 6 cylinder has plenty of pep and sounds like a sewing machine. I drove 200 miles home in it too! I donít think I can bear to rip it apart to put in a v8.

Re: 1968 El Camino estimate

I live in California and haven't seen many Elcos that were not rust buckets. Beleave me, I looked at over 10 cars in the past year looking for one. Pay close attention to the rear widow area, inside and out. The smuggler's box area and floors inside and out and the bottom side of the car. On most the cars I checked, most would classify as a bondo bucket/polished turd. 15-20 is not out of line if it means no body work or repaint in your future. Think of the time you will save. Just throw your new drive team package in the car and enjoy without loosing valuable time in paint jail.

That car looks pretty sharp. I doubt that original paint. I seen many bondo artisans that can make a rusted out hulk look solid, So take the time to do a good inspection. These cars were not pulling much cash, so many were done up on the cheap instead of investing in lasting work.

I would invest in one of these if I were going to look for one.

Re: 1968 El Camino estimate

I'm color blind in the greenish silver spectrum.......Try this color chart https://www.chevellestuff.net/1968/paint.htm

My guess is Grecian green.

My "jealousy" has become JOY! EXCELLENT JAMES!!!! Ya, dont be tempted to monkey around with a well running machine. IF IT AINT BROKE!

Green with envy ? NAW...>! That's GRECIAN GREEN for sure, and its looking more "modern" all the time, to my eyes anyway.

Paint code HH, Grecian Green. I've had two '68's in this color, and love it.

Thatís the correct color. Itís growing more on me every day. If I have to repaint the chevelle I would strongly consider this one.
