New to this site, wondering how many of you have el Camino's?

As you can see in my avatar, I have a '75 el Camino SS, original drivetrain (400SBC, Turbo 350, 2.73 posi) swivel buckets, AC, Cruise, Tach/gauges, PW, original 54k miles. Just put 15x8 ralley's with BFG TA 255/60's on it.

I don't see a way to add pictures to a post here? How do you share info?

Pila, & jb2wheeler would be the two regular posters that come to mind.  The easiest way to post pictures is to link to photo bucket.

Wish I had one and if I did it would look like this.  I love this thing! It is one of my favorite renderings that I have done.

Welcome BAS-SR. You have a very nice car/truck there. I believe there is a waiting period for new members before they can post pics, something like maybe 10 days. I HAVE A 74 eLKIE WITH 48,000 MILES ON IT. iT CAME FROM THE FACTORY WITH THE GREAT 400 Sb ENGINE. uNFORTUNATELY i PUT A LARGER ENGINE IN IT RIGHT BEFORE GAS PRICES SKYROCKETED. jb2WHEELER Sorry about the caps, I am too lazy to retype it.

Hey JB,

Got any pic's of your el Camino? Sounds like we have (or you had) the same motor I have in mine. What color is it?

I got my 77 a couple months ago! I'm still trying to find a set of seatbelts, and a rear bumper/filers.

As Mcarlo77 said I have the original '73 Elkie that was used in the TV show 'my name is Earl'. Drive it around town in a rural area in France, and get tons of looks, they never saw anything like it! Does ok on gas despite the original 454 engine, I love driving it around and hauling things in it from time to time. I'm keeping it exactly as it was in the show.
For some reason there seem to be a lot of 4th gen (73-77) El Caminos in The Netherlands, where I'm originally from.
P.s. mine is probably the only El Camino on diplomatic plates ....

I think the G3 El Caminos are the best looking out of all of them. Provided that you tuck the front bumper.

I've been toying with the idea of trying to fit a '71 or '72 monte carlo front bumper on my '74.  The general shape and size is right & it would be super trick if  pulled  it off.  But honestly the last think i need is another project.  Rolling Eyes

Dude I just looked at those. The 71 would be awesome and it looks like you could even use your original turn signal lights from the bumper. They may not be the same size. I wonder what the dimensions are of them?

Either way it would be awesome. I was trying to find a diagram to get the dimensions for you, but could not find anything.

If I was to seriously do this, my neighbors have 3 first gen Monte's, so I would be able to take measurements and plan accordingly.

You could see what it might look like, if only there was someone on the forum who had mad photoshop skills... Smile
