396 V8, 4 SPEED, FRONT DISCS, MAGNUM 500 WHEELS, PWR STEERING, STRAIGHT & NICE!!
This 1969 Chevy El Camino Super Sport is the fun kind of trouble. An El Camino SS with a big motor, and screaming color, is built to intimidate others just simply by showing up in the parking lot.
The great thing about an El Camino was that it was supposed to be adaptable for everything. This was the one vehicle that could go to church on Sunday, and run a bale of hay into the fields on Monday. Along the way something else got added into the mix...attitude. With El Caminos getting caught up in the muscle car war that was consuming its Chevelle sibling, they became the baddest trucks around. 1969 was a particularly mean-looking year for the El Camino SS. The styling was updated to give the front overhang that look of angry eyebrows. The SS grille is de-chromed for a more sinister appearance. This dark attitude is continued with black rally stripes, rear panel, and vinyl top. All of this is the perfect complement to the SS-only Hugger Orange paint. This package is finished off with the factory-correct Magnum 500 14-inch sport wheels with SS center caps.
Just like the outside, the interior has a dark side. The black seats were re-covered in a factory-correct vinyl pattern, and continue to be in excellent condition. The door cards, dash, and carpeting all reinforce this midnight cruiser attitude. All of this black makes the chrome touches on the three-spoke wheel, door handles, stick shift, glovebox, and other trim pieces really stand out. Because this SS wants to get down to business, it opted-out of power-zapping items like the radio and air conditioning. Still, this brute has the right conveniences to make it a fine driver such as the heater/defrost and power steering.
This El Camino SS has a correct 396 cubic-inch V8 heart. It's not the truck's original motor, which can be an advantage. This one is ready to take to the local car shows, because you don't have worry about the first owner's teenage son spending the 1970s using the engine for Friday night hot rodding. Instead, this is a newer motor that carries all the monster big block power, and it has plenty of evidence of recent major servicing. That means more confidence when staring down everyone in the parking lot. Another great confidence-builder is the four-speed manual transmission that allows you to dial in as much power as you want. This El Camino SS might be designed for speed, but it has some built-in comfort advantages. The El Camino utilizes Chevelle suspension components for a more luxurious ride, including front disc brakes. In fact, El Caminos have a slightly longer wheelbase then a Chevelle coupe for even more comfort.
This El Camino SS will draw people in with its color that probably should have been called Look-At-Me Orange. When the crowds get closer, its got the kind of straight bodywork that gains instant respect. Of course, the exhaust note from the big motor will make them all jump in fear.
