Wow, this one here is a real showstopper. On the lot now is the indicated 1966 Chevrolet El Camino, presented in stock-looking style with dog-dish hubcaps and a high-output 327 "Turbofire" V8 engine. This one is really special, as the attention to detail is truly incredible. Even the center-console factory clock is working! But that detail doesn't stop there, everything from the tachometer to the badging on the 327 V8 is correct and is as-intended from the factory. The 1966 El Camino was highlighted by new sheetmetal, which was identical to the Chevelle. In addition, a new instrument panel with a horizontal sweep speedometer was introduced for '66. As stated, this El Camino is equipped with a 327 C.I. "Turbofire" V8 paired to a 4-barrel carburetor, which put together makes for a smoking-hot 350 horsepower. All those horses get to the pavement through a Muncie M20 4-speed manual transmission, meaning that not only is this El Camino powerful but it is also a lot of fun. Additionally, this El Camino looks incredibly stock. The white paint looks great in the sun laid out over bodylines that are nice and straight. Inside, the attention to detail is shown off through black vinyl bucket seats with additional chrome trim on the dashboard and a stock center console (with working clock!). Options that this Chevrolet come with include power steering, power brakes, an AM pushbutton radio, a heater + defroster, a period-correct tachometer, vent windows, seatbelts, and a mean-sounding dual-exhaust system. The truck rides on some badass stock white-painted wheels with Chevrolet chrome dog-dish hubcaps, which are mounted on top of some retro-style "Street M/T" blackwall tires. All said, this El Camino is looking for a new home and a new driver. After taking it for a spin, we're sure that this Chevrolet doesn't just haul equipment in its bed. This El Camino is also built to haul ass.
