Many of our photos of this classic '66 El Camino were taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, located only minutes from our showroom. Be sure to visit our friends at the Flight Museum if you find yourself in Dallas, Texas. This is a bare bones El Camino, restored to original specifications. It is powered by what is believed to be its original 283 cubic inch 2bbl. V8 paired with the 3-speed standard column-shifted transmission. The paint was restored in the factory Regal red finish, chrome done along with it. This is a great looking El Camino, in very good to excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition.
Open the doors to 1966. The interior features restored bench seating. The transmission is a three-on-the-tree while the dash retains the original gauge cluster. The steering wheel is a woodgrain 3-spoke. The stereo system has been upgraded with a '66 El Camino specific custom audio AM/FM digital stereo. The headliner has been re-done along with the door panels. The rubber door seals were replaced as well. The dash is in very good condition.
Closer inspection of the Regal Red paint will confirm a good solid finish throughout on a straight dry climate body. This is an attractive car, restored in its correct color combination. The chrome bumpers were re-chromed front & rear. The wheels of choice are 15-Inch Chevrolet Rallys fitted with newer 215/70R15 Grand Tour Radials all around. The bed is in excellent condition, inside and out, as is the tailgate.
The engine compartment features the standard 283 2bbl. V8 rated at 195 horsepower. This is the correct engine, with casting # 3849852. The block may have been decked at some point, because we could not see any numbers on the front pad. The casting number does show it to be date correct, so it could very well be original. The firewall, inner fenders, and core support are done in satin black, solid original sheet metal throughout. Induction is courtesy of an economical 2bbl. carburetor. This car doesn't have power steering or power brakes, it was ordered with economy in mind. The little V8 still propels this car/truck down the road with ease. Be sure to play our video of this El Camino in action.
The original trim identification plate is also in place. This is a true Regal Red car/truck. The undercarriage displays the original frame and flooring throughout. The suspension and 10-bolt differential are in good shape. Monroe Sensa-Trac shocks have been installed along with a custom dual exhaust system. This is your opportunity to own a unique & stock 1966 Chevrolet El Camino pickup truck.
