And now for something completely different! This most eye-catching of Pickups is a 1967 model Chevrolet El Camino - one of only 2,565 examples built with the optional 325bhp L35 Turbojet engine and TH400 three-speed automatic transmission. Other stand out features of this highly potent second generation Pickup include: 3883948 Q Jet inlet manifold and Q Jet 4-barrel oval port L35/L36 carburettor; 12-bolt Positraction limited-slip differential; SS Supersort louvered bonnet; Cragar five-spoke wheels shod with BF Goodrich tyres; twin exhaust pipes; 'ice cold' air conditioning system. 'FMA 435F' is a lefthand drive, matching numbers California car that was recently imported to the UK and is reputed (but not warranted) to have covered just 49,000 miles from new. Finished in gleaming Bright Red and trimmed in Black, it is described by the vendor as 'rare and desirable and 'very good' in all major respects'. It comes complete with an MOT valid into June next year.
PLEASE NOTE: We have been advised that this vehicle suffered Rear and Side damage whilst in the United States, but was subsequently repaired.
