Stripped nekkid with a beer
The El Camino has been stripped all the way to the frame, as you can see in the first picture. The frame will need new bushings, and a little cleaning up, but it is in pretty good shape overall.
The next three pictures show the body off the frame. The floor pans are a total write off and will have to be replaced. This is a common problem on older cars and replacement pans are readily available for most cars, this one included. The fabricator will do a little cutting here, a little welding there, and the floor will be good as new.
The next photo shows the parts that came out of the car all jumbled in a pile. Some of these parts may be used again, but a lot of them probably won’t. The seat, for example, won’t be used as the car will have bucket seats installed when it is reassembled.
The final picture shows a little surprise Kelly found in the car. One of the past owners of the car must have had a taste for Schlitz beer because several empty cans were found in various nooks and crannies of the car. When you tear a car down like this you never know what you might find. This is one of the less embarrassing discoveries.
