About “Crossram Rat”

Owned car since mid 80's, I am the third owner. Car came out of the Philly area. It has had two frame off resto's the latest coming just a couple of years ago 2003 to be exact.
It features an LS-6 454 with Merlin heads, Crane roller cam, Edelbrock crossram intake with two 500 cfm carbs, Mallory ignition, Dynomax headers. It's backed by a B&M th400 tranny and a GM 12 bolt with Richmond gears and Moser axles. Rolling on Weld wheels and Mickey Thompson rubber.
The car still retains most of the original GM sheetmetal. It has a Harwood 4" fiberglass cowl hood over the 600 hp BB Chevy. It is all covered in a PPG BC/CC Cherry Red metallic paint.
The black interior remains mostly stock with just a B&M Starshifter and a couple of Autometer guages installed.
The chassis also has stayed basically stock but just cleaned up and painted with much stainless, powdercoating and chrome

About “The Road”

I have only owned this El Camino since last August. Traded my 355 small block S10 for it. 69 SS El Caminos only came with a BB 396. Right now it has a GM 350/325hp in it . It still has the original TH400 and 12 bolt rear. A new BB 396 is alresdy in the works. It also has AC.The interior was tan, ugly. I already have most of the interior changed to black. The bed is full of new parts that I have been getting over the winter. Too busy to work on it right now. Hope to get alot of it done by spring. My plan is to restore it to original condition but alot more horse power. It is a very comfortable muscle car/truck.
