$3,500 Hauler: 1967 Chevrolet El Camino

071616 Barn Finds - 1967 Chevrolet El Camino- 1

This red and ready hauler is a 1967 Chevrolet El Camino and it’s on Craigslist in Lakota, Iowa. The seller is asking $3,500, that seems like a heck of a bargain to me!

This is the last year of the second-generation El Camino, and the 1967 models got a new front end treatment to match the Chevelle. These cars, or trucks, or car-trucks, had standard air shocks in the off chance that any owners would actually haul anything in the back. I’m guessing that some folks did use the bed on an El Camino to haul things, like some rare SUV owners actually take their vehicles off road.

Here’s the new grille treatment. I prefer the 1964. 1965, and 1966 grilles, but that’s just my personal preference. The person selling this car says that it “has rust but would make a great donor car or can be easily repaired.” It must be covered up with body putty and paint, the body looks great from what I can see. Maybe that’s why it’s at such a bargain-basement price. The bed has some surface rust and you can see a bit on the tailgate. And, some bubbling is shown on the photo of the RR quarter, so there must have been some quick rust repair on this one.

You’ll want to do a little work inside, but it looks pretty nice overall. The seller doesn’t give too much info about the interior at all, but they do say, “radio in glove box. it is in there temporarily and can be removed easily. I have the glove box door for it too.” 1967 saw the addition of a standard, collapsible steering column and this car has the optional power front disc brakes, first available on the El Camino in 1967.

The seller doesn’t mention too much about this engine, other than: “350 engine and th350 trans. car is a in driving condition.” Here’s what it may have looked like when it was new. The only V8s available in the El Camino in this era would have been a 283, 327, and a 396 so this is a replacement engine, unfortunately. That may be another reason why the price is lower than what I would have guessed it would be. But, with all of that, this still seems like a good looking car for $3,500. What do you think? Is this one worth restoring back to like new condition again, or would you just keep going with the modifications?

      It was gone within seconds of it being shown here…

      Maybemaybemaybe someone honestly fell in love, got a very nice example at a very good price and bought it to drive. But being the jaded cynic I am…Probably coming to an eBay auction very soon at double the price

    Figured that it would go quick. Will probably be on a car lot tomorrow at double the price.

    Had the same car, same color, great little 327 in it. Sold it for $1500. Loved that Elco, it’s the one car I wish I had kept.

    I really don’t understand why anyone cares what small block it had. Maybe if it was a 396. I’d rather have any GM car with an LSX. Numbers matching doesn’t mean much to me I guess. Always liked El Camino’s and mid sized GM’s.

    No wonder it got taken down as soon as it appeared here:

    the rising influence of Barn Finds in the old car world.

    My cousin has Uncle Ed’s white ’65 Elco 250hp 327/Muncie 4 speed. It is a very fast truck!
