1968 Chevrolet El Camino SS396

Gateway Classic Cars of Dallas is excited to present for sale a 1968 Chevrolet El Camino SS-396 This El Camino is very well known among the Worlds El Camino Community. For the past 13+ years, the owner has been a leader of the National El Camino Owners Association (NECOA*), the last 10+ serving as the National Director of the 24 worldwide Regions. The car was shown frequently at the US Nationals in his earlt ownership, winning a total of 3 Best of Show awards from both peer voting and professional judges. It was also shown frequently at various Florida shows, where it won a total of 2 Best of Class at Super Chevy and Bradenton. Awards won by this car in Texas are too numerous to catalog (photo of major awards only attached), but, when it was in competition, it generally won a Best in Class - and many times was Best in Show or Crowd Favorite. The car hasn't been shown for the past few years due to health considerations.

The El Camino has been voted by fellow El Camino owners to be one of the 13 Best in our Association for the past 12 years. This honor allowed her to be presented in the Association's Showpiece calendar each year. This El Camino is one of just over 500 factory air-conditioned SS-396 El Caminos built for the 1968 model year. To preserve the car for future generations, the engine in 2010 underwent a major preservation service - it was completely balanced internally! That, along with the practically non-wearing roller rocker arms, should allow this engine to keep purring along for decades. Approximately 2,000 miles have been driven since the balancing. The car also underwent a "down to metal" restoration of its paint in 2010 - including under the hood - even though it underwent a rotisserie restoration in 2007/2008. The paint had numerous defects, and it needed to be just right. And, while everything was completely stripped from the car, POR-15 was liberally applied to all interior floors - any surfaces that COULD possibly rust were coated with the rust prohibiting application. The bed's "Smuggler's Compartment" was included in the application. Following the POR-15, a coating of Dynamat was applied to all interior floors and walls - again including the "Smuggler's Compartment".

This 1968 model is a great year for the El Camino and this body style didn't last for long making them pretty rare too! You're not going to regret jumping on this fun and stylish Ford.
