One advantage of North America been so huge is that barn find cars will probably keep appearing forever more, the problem is tracking the things down.

Here we have one barn find which is arguably one of the best muscle car/pickup combos around, the Chevrolet El Camino.
This example obviously will need some work, but it comes with an engine and a bit of previous restoration work, which should be a good starting point for anybody.

Although very scruffy in appearance and if you look closely at the hood there are some rust holes, but we have seen far worse over the years and this could be a good starting project for somebody out there.

Keep your eye on this listing as you could take this project in any direction you want and end up with a fine classic.

‘This vehicle here has been in Texas all it’s life and has spent the last 20+ years in a barn here in West-Texas. The previous owner had the seat upholstered 10-15 years ago, and little else has been done to the car since then. The body is complete, straight, and shows zero evidence of any accidents or repairs. That being said, it has some issues regarding rust. There is typical rust damage in multiple areas of the vehicle, as is expected in Chevrolet products of the era. It has effected areas such as: the hood, floor (in some spots), tail-gate, and rockers. All these areas are relatively easy to repair/repair by a competent body shop. These areas are all shown in the photos below. The floors have had metal repair done on top of the original floor, so the floor is solid from the inside, but the original metal is still damaged underneath.

However, the vehicle is incredibly complete and intact, the interior is all in great shape, the seat is not perfect, but is very clean and comfortable with no major tears or stains. The dash is straight with no major damage or issues; we haven’t tested gauges or the radio, these may/may not work. The engine is the factory 283ci V8 with the correct 2-speed automatic transmission. We started up the engine and ran it off a remote tank and we were surprised at how well it ran after sitting for so many years. There were no signs of knocks, ticks, or issues. We didn’t try shifting the transmission, so please assume that the vehicle will need to be winched onto a trailer. The windshield has a small crack on the passenger side, but they are readily available from glass suppliers. This El Camino could easily be gotten on the road as-is and enjoyed as a patina car, or fully restored to it’s glory days. ‘
