sorry no pics, may be going to look at it later this week.
body on the frame, I imagine doors are include in the shell,
no clip but comes with 2 fenders, and hood. I imagine no front glass, or cracked at least
say its rolling with front and rear suspension, lets say wavy but your typical been sitting out in the desert type shell without rust. interior, I imagine seat frames front and back.
No idea if theres any chrome. Ive got my elcamino advertised here in the classifieds, guy asked if im interested in trading for this project. Ive got the elky advertised for 5500 obo, it runs, drives with a 454 turbo 350, 12 bolt 331 posi, buckets console etc etc. I cant NOT at least go look at it. My favorite tri 5 is actually a 55 chevy, but it could be used for trading material. Id eventually like to end up with a 68 camaro project. Jim

I talked to the guy tonight. If I was a tri five type a guy it might be worth the trade. But, there is no trim,bezels,grille, etc for the front clip, most of the trim for the body is gone. Floor is rusted, and there is no title. He would toss in a 454 core.
On the other hand, my el camino has a 454, posi, buckets, console etc. And the best part is I can get in it right now, start it up and drive it. Heck I may even drive it over to the test and tune next saturday. Plus I have a 4 speed changeover for it if I get bored. So I told him thanks but I decided Im not interested in a trade. Jim
I forgot where he bought the body from, but it did come from out of state, He told me he won it on ebay. jim
