This 1960 Chevrolet El Camino, meticulously crafted in Los Angeles, has remained an esteemed resident of the West Coast. From 2011 to 2013, it underwent a comprehensive refurbishment and modification. The body was repainted in a fetching Butternut Yellow and white, while the interior was adorned with black and white upholstery. Under the hood, a potent 327ci V8 engine coupled with a four-speed Super T-10 manual transmission was installed. The truck also boasts a Positraction rear end, a Proform 600-cfm carburetor, a Milodon oil pan, MagnaFlow mufflers, double-staggered American Salt Flat wheels, lowered suspension, front disc brakes, power steering, and air conditioning. The current proprietor acquired this vehicle in 2014, adding roughly 1,700 miles since. This customized El Camino is now available on their behalf, accompanied by handwritten ownership notes and a Washington title.

The seller recounts that between 2011 and 2013, the truck was meticulously disassembled and stripped to bare metal. Corrosion on one of the lower-rear fenders was remedied with new metal before the vehicle was painted in Butternut Yellow with white highlights. Weather seals, trim items, and lenses were either refurbished or replaced during this meticulous process.

The inner headlights were removed and replaced with intake ducting to enhance engine performance.

The bed and tailgate feature custom-fitted metal liners finished in a sleek gloss silver.

Up front, 2″ drop spindles and tubular control arms were installed along with a CPP 500 Series power steering box, a sway bar, and disc brakes. The Positraction 4.11 rear axle is equipped with adjustable overrider suspension bars and an adjustable Panhard rod. The truck rides on American Salt Flat wheels, measuring 18×9.5″ in the front and 20×12″ at the rear, fitted with Nitto tires.

Inside, the bench seat was retrimmed in black and white upholstery, and a Vintage Air climate control system was installed, complemented by low-pile black carpeting. The current owner also replaced the seat belts.

A two-spoke steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column, and AutoMeter gauges were installed along with a Painless wiring harness. The odometer reads 3,800 miles, representing the distance driven since the 2011-2013 build, with the current owner contributing approximately 1,700 miles to that total.

During the build, a 1968-model-year 327ci V8 engine was installed, featuring oversized Speed Pro forged flat-top 10:1-compression pistons, Hastings rings, 3/8″ H-beam connecting rods, ACL race bearings, Harland Sharp roller rockers, an Elgin camshaft and lifters, Z28-specification 302 heads, an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake manifold, tubular headers, a Melling oil pump, and a HEI distributor. Following the current owner’s acquisition, a Milodon oil pump, a Proform 600 CFM carburetor, and MagnaFlow mufflers were added. The oil was last changed in June 2023.

An aluminum flywheel and a McLeod Super Street and Strip clutch kit are housed under the SFI-approved steel bell housing. The BorgWarner four-speed Super T-10 manual transmission connects to the solid-case rear end with Positraction and 4.11 gears. A Fuel Safe fuel tank was also installed, along with a dual-circuit master cylinder.
