1967 Chevrolet El Camino
The Green Truck
The Green Truck is a 1967 Chevrolet El Camino with a 283 V8 and a Powerglide automatic transmission, and it's a very special car...er, truck...cruck?...to me.
I grew up riding around in my Grandpa's El Camino — It was the only vehicle he owned while I was alive. We went to the park, to the store, to get coffee — everywhere — together in it. We also called it the Green Truck.
I've only recently come into possession of the El Camino and it's been sitting on dirt and covered with junk, so I have no idea of its condition at this point. I do know it hasn't been driven since he died, and that it has low miles. The transmission is toast and will need a rebuild, but my ultimate goal for this cruck is extremely simple: put it back on the road in the condition he kept it in.
I have a lot of really great memories in this old cruck.
