I've had the truck for a while and have started taking it apart. That's the easy part. I have everthing to restore it including the seat, that has already been recovered, all I have to do is put it back together after,of course redoing them. Heck, I even have the original color paint for it.


I'm going to replace the 6 cylinder motor with a 60 over 327 with forged pistons, crank, and rods. I think that I'll use tricked out heads and mayby 2 4 barrels. When I bought it I drove it home and it drove very well. When I bought it it already had a muncie rockcrusher in it why I don't know but I'm glad it did. It should take a year or two to complete because I can't work as hard or as long on it because of my disabity but I will prevail. Eventually. Grizzly1

Factory Options

I just got a 1978 ElCamino that is drivable and I think I'll use it as a daily driver. It mostly needs body work that I plan on doing when I feel like it. It will, eventually, become something that no one would be ashamed to be seen in. That's a fact Grizzly1
