This car apparently spent the entirety of its life in Arizona, having originally been sold in Phoenix and remaining there until it came to Ohio about three years ago.

Ultra-clean Arizona El Camino. Correct HC-coded 327, upgraded 700R4 4-speed automatic, factory A/C, and more. Great color combination with laser-straight bodywork. Beautiful interior. Nicely documented. A whole lot of El Camino for the money!

We’ve always liked Chevy’s all-purpose El Camino, which is as practical today as it was 55 years ago. All the comforts of a car with the work ethic of a pickup, all sweetened with a bit of muscle car performance. Most of these truck/cars were used up and thrown away, so finding one as super straight as this 1967 El Camino isn’t too easy anymore, and certainly not at this price. This car apparently spent the entirety of its life in Arizona, having originally been sold in Phoenix and remaining there until it came to Ohio about three years ago. Someone treated this car to a fairly expensive restoration a few years ago, including a color change from the original Granada Gold to Bolero Red, a choice we can’t argue with today. It looks flat-out fantastic and it was obviously a full disassembly job because there’s no trace of the original paint anywhere. The massive quarters are straight and reflect clearly, panel gaps are even, and the whole thing fits together better than most of its peers that we’ve experienced. Even the doors close with a nice solid sound rather than a loose rattle. It also looks like most of the chrome was replaced or restored, including the hard-to-restore inserts on the hood. There’s even a cool woodgrained insert on the tailgate for a bit of nostalgia. The bed itself was restored and now has a heavy-duty rubber mat as well as a tonneau cover to keep your equipment dry and safe.

The red bench seat interior was also restored to factory specs, including new seat covers, fresh correct carpets, and reproduction door panels. The wood-rimmed steering wheel helps warm things up and has a three-spoke design so it almost looks OEM, and the factory dash shows quite well for being in original condition. The factory gauges are all functional except the clock, and there is a trio of auxiliary gauges under the dash to monitor the engine’s vitals. This is a factory A/C car, and while the system should work (it energizes and has a charge), the control levers are stiff and we did not want to risk damage by moving them. The original radio has been replaced by a lookalike with modern tech, including satellite and Bluetooth, as well as a set of speakers in custom kick panels. The spare is still behind the passenger’s seat and that dial you see just below the rear window is for the rear air shocks so the attitude and load capacity can be dialed-in just right.

GM didn’t stamp partial VINs on all El Camino engines in 1967, but we believe the engine is original to the car and is a correct HC-coded 327 topped by a 4-barrel carburetor (HC indicates a 1967 327/275 with a 4-barrel carb and a PowerGlide). It’s been rebuilt to stock specs and offers an advertised 275 horsepower so it feels plenty punchy. There’s Chevy Orange paint on the block itself along with chrome valve covers and an open element air cleaner on top (an L79 style air cleaner is also included), so it looks the part, and you’ll note that it even uses GM-stamped hoses and tower hose clamps. Ignition has been upgraded to a later GM HEI distributor, but that’s about it for modifications. Power steering and power disc brakes are part of the package, and it has been fitted with a new PowerMaster alternator that keeps things charged. The stainless dual exhaust system has a stock sound so it never gets annoying, and it looks like a lot of the front end components are new, so it drives quite well. The transmission is a 700R4 4-speed automatic, which offers a tall overdrive gear for easy highway cruising, although you’ll have to adjust to the indicator on the dash not quite lining up with the original markings—a small price to pay for the upgraded gearbox. You’ll note that the undercarriage is extremely clean (being an Arizona car and all) and there are no floor patches or other issues. The 10-bolt rear has a limited slip tag and what we believe are 3.36 gears inside, so it feels eager but settles down on the highway thanks to that overdrive transmission. The stance is exactly right, low but not too low, and it sits on 15x7 and 15x8 Rally wheels and staggered 215/70/15 front and 245/60/15 rear BFGoodrich T/A radials.

Documentation is extensive, including a 2-inch-thick binder full of receipts on the restoration. It also includes the original owner’s manual, Protect-O-Plate and warranty booklet, and some advertising materials. The bed is stuffed full of spare parts including the aforementioned air cleaner, stock steering wheel, trim rings, door handles, trim pieces, service manuals, and much more.

This is a whole lot of car for the money. There’s obviously a big investment in the car that isn’t reflected in the sticker price, and the combination of great looks, comfortable road manners, smart upgrades, and great documentation make this car a winner regardless of price.
