Real SS 396, California rust free, air, ps, pdb!

Real SS 396, designated right in the vin. California rust free car with air, power steeering and power disc brakes.

EXTERIOR: Built in California, has a Z in the vin. It has one of the cleanest bodies I've ever seen on an El Camino. From what I can tell it's all original rust free, damage free metal. It is laser beam straight from every angle, the body panels fit square and flush. The doors open and close like a new car. It's smooth all along the bottom, there are no bubbles. The metal flake is laid out evenly, the clear coat is polished smooth and glossy. You can't even feel the stripes. The SS package has domed hood with chrome louvers, blacked out along the bottom and on the tailgate. The front bumper has been rechromed, the grill is good original. The emblems, marker lights, bowtie mirror and door handles look new. The the mouldings around the door windows, rain gutters and all around the top of the bed look new. In back the trim and bumper have been replaced. The 15" rally wheels are a couple inches wider in back. They have all new trim. The Good Year tires look close to new.

INTERIOR: Inside is very clean and unabused. It has the factory gauge cluster with a tachometer in the middle. The carpet looks new. Seat was reupholstered and door panels replaced. Dash area is very nice- dash pad, heater controls, knobs, vents are nice. It has a retro stereo with 6x9 speakers in back. The headliner, visors and mirror look good. Dome light works.

ENGINE COMPARTMENT: A&F rebuilt engine, their tag is riveted to the motor. It is a period correct 402 with factory Holley intake and new Holley carb. It also has a set of headers. It features factory air conditioning, some parts were replaced and still have stickers on them. It has power brakes and correct power steering with remote reservoir. Everything looks proper- squirters are hooked up, new horns, new hood insulation, has proper shroud, cowl vent screens etc. The metal is smooth and painted satin black.

TRUNK COMPARTMENT: Inside the bed has no rust, only a few minor little dents. Repainted glossy. The tailgate functions smoothly. The bottom of the tailgate is dry with no rust. There is a car cover included.

UNDERSIDE: It is exceptionally clean underneath this car. The front end looks like it has been completely rebuilt including tie rod ends, ball joints, bushings, shocks etc. It has the F-41 suspension which includes sway bars and boxed control arms. In back the shocks were replaced. Looking up at the motor it's spotless, you can see fresh freeze plugs, fuel pump and starter. The Turbo 400 automatic also looks clean. It has a chrome oil pan. A 12 bolt rear end sits in back. All new disc brake components in front, the e-brake cables are hooked up. The dual exhaust system has a crossover pipe and Flowmaster mufflers. In my opinion this has the driest, cleanest metal you'll see. Every factory spot weld and seam are clean. All the metal is smooth. The lower quarters and inner rockers are spotless, the drain holes are mint.
