Re: What do y'all think of this 67?
I like the car but the manhole covers have to go. A nice set of first gen rallys without the centers or rings would be my choice. Or a nice set of black steel wheels with vintage 60s chrome lug nuts.. I would get a set of 255/60r15 Cooper tires from Diamond Back and have them remove all the sidewall markings so they look sixties vintage. I would get a set of black steelys made in 15 x 8 with a 5" back space. Wheel Vintiques Series 62 wheels would work well. I like the fact you can install center caps to them..
Here is my 69 elco with a set..
A vintage set of Baby Moons would look fantastic too...
My buddy has one of these but its a SS396 car, dark blue with black interior, 375/4 speed/3.55 posi all manual.. He wanted $38,000. It was truly in mint condition with 47,000... It was too clean to be a driver which was what I was looking for. Once I drove my 69 el Camino and fell in love with it all other cars were off the table..
You suggest an el Camino to your buddy. There cheaper and much stronger with that massive frame there for they handle much better than the regular GM A body..
