    I have a 1968 El Camino my dad purchased in 1969 and has been in our family ever since. It is mostly original besides the transmission I had to put in it in 1979 due to an "accident" chasing jackrabbits across a pasture. It has a 327 engine and runs great (when we do decide to drive it). It has a little over 100,000 miles on it, and can generously be described as "fair" condition. I am considering selling it, but don't know what it's approximate value would be. Any sincere help would be greatly appreciated.

    Chasing jackrabbits in an El Camino...now I'd like to know how many cans of Olympia beer were involved in that scenario. Standing in the back with your Marlin 39A, wunning down wascally wabbits...life don't get any better than that!


    Wish I could go back to that time...blasted Jimmy Carter and all.

    It really depends were you live as to the value, but the car is not a collectable a couple of grand to 2500 makes sense

    It depends on what your idea of "Fair" condition is.

    Keep it till next July and drive it to the Indiana State trapshoot and "SuperChevy" weekend in Indy, they are both about the same time. At least they were this year. They will tell you what it is worth.

    Bill Clinton owned one that he said had astroturf in the back, does your's have it? Tell everybody it could possibly be Slicks old car.

    I heard comedian Tim Wilson make a comment about Clinton and his El Camino. I'll paraprhase - Bill Clinton drives an El Camino. Isn't it great to know we have a President you couldn't make a choice between a Chevy Malibu or a pickup truck.

    Yenko---one beautiful Elky. Is it a big block? Those 68-72 A body Chevelles were a high water mark; stopped, were rugged, handled big horsepower etc. I had a '78 Camino 350 four speed. Fast car with it's built 350; didn't stop, poor assembly quality...only thing it was good for was fast. The '72 Elky I had before was a much better vehicle..
