First off... you should have PM'd me directly.holy **** this things more rare then I thought, thinking about the rarity of this car when my friend first bought it makes my stomach turn now it was untouched besides the interior being a little shotty with very low miles, a little while after he bought it the rear end locked up on him while moving along pretty well and it messed the original transmission up in it my brother and him took it to a lot of transmission shops and most of them scratched their heads and said “well thanks for showing it to me” so he opted to buy a 350 rocket and a th350 for it, a couple weeks after it was installed (if that) he tried drifting it into my mother’s driveway and hit a tree resulting in the front end damage which is why I still lack a front fender for it, after that it sat for years and I’ve been a gbody el Camino fan for a while and had a project 84 el Camino and he was hurting for cash so I bought it from him for parts I used the dash, the steering column, the radiator which wasn’t original he had an after market dual exhaust cross member which I also used and I think that was pretty much it, after doing this I started looking into the car more and realized it was only produced for 2 years and then I found all of the original paper work. I kick myself in the *ss every day for not parting with the el Camino and building this but I’ve got too much into the Camino and not enough funds and time to give the salon the Justice it deserves I still feel I should hang onto it and give it the treatment it deserves in the future but money is tight and I want her to go to a good home
Second... I'll cut straight to the chase. If you have followed my threads about the Aerobacks I own, you know how I do it. Your car is worth $700 at best, and here's why.
- Wrecked. Missing fender, probably needs a grill, headlight bezel, inner fender, and possibly a core support.
- Not running
- No dash, steering column, radiator, and crossmember
- Needs a rewire?? That probably means you cut the dash harness when you swapped it to the Elco
- Sitting for years. How many??
- Northern car
- No A/C
- No P/W, P/L
- 350 SBO / T-350 cores
- Original paperwork
- Bucket seats
- Ralley gauges
Just sayin. Now with that said... Houston to Letchworth, It's a 24 hour, 1500 mile trip, using $150 in fuel. Loaded, coming home it's a 28 hour, 1500 mile trip, using $240 in fuel.
Now, post up some current pics, and let's see what you have.
