True to scale in representation, with stunning artwork of the shown scene as above on the back of the Tee.
Highly detailed small artwork of the ‘Chevrolet El Camino’ badge script emblem as presented in chromium appearance with white outlines on the front left side of chest. Note, there is no artwork of the shown vehicle on the front of the Tee.
The fantastic main artwork showcases the attention to detail of this artists “air-brushed” impression of the third generation hauler, the 1969 Chevrolet SS El Camino ute.
This brilliant artwork showcases the muscularity in design given to these big and heavy classic muscle cars of the late 60’s. With ‘fire’ in it’s eyes, much emphasis is placed on the front facia detail, the exterior chrome trim, and that unmistakable front end that incorporates the highly detailed chrome grille assembly and the very cool Black vinyl roof treatment.
This very neat cruiser has the right low stance with the big five spoke Billet specialty show wheels and low profile tyres, big brakes and the high shine duco that the body presents is flawless.
Again, the colours of this artwork are brilliant, with deep shine and reflection displayed within the body of this heavy Chevy utility, giving that three dimensional appearance.
Chevy introduced a longer El Camino in 1968, based on the Chevelle station wagon/four-door sedan wheelbase (116 in (2,946 mm), overall length: 208 in (5,283 mm)); it also shared Chevelle Malibu exterior and interior trims. The interior was revamped including cloth and vinyl or all-vinyl bench seats and deep twist carpeting.
All-vinyl Strato bucket seats and center console were an $111 option. Power front disc brakes and Positraction were optional. A new, high-performance Super Sport SS396 version was launched. The Turbo-Jet 396 had 325 bhp (242 kW) or 350 bhp (260 kW) versions. Returning to the official options list for the first time since late 1966 was the 375 bhp (280 kW) L78. It had solid lifters, big-port heads, and an 800 cfm Holley four-barrel on a low-rise aluminum manifold.
A three-speed manual was standard with all engines, and a four-speed or automatic was optional. In 1968, the SS was a separate model (the "SS-396"). Therefore, it can be identified by the vehicle identification number (VIN). For example, a 1968 El Camino with a VIN starting with "13880" would be a genuine SS-396 model, while a 1968 El Camino with the VIN "13680" would be a non-SS "Malibu" version of the El Camino.
All genuine Super Sports from 1966-1968 have an "8" as the third digit of the VIN; 1968 is the only year for the El Camino SS as a separate model.
The 1969 models showed only minor changes, led by more-rounded front-end styling. A single chrome bar connected quad headlights, and a slotted bumper held the parking lights. New round instrument pods replaced the former linear layout. For the first time, the Chevrolet 350 V8 was used in an El Camino.
The Super Sport group included a 265- or 325-horsepower 396-cubic-inch V8 beneath a double-domed hood, along with a black-out grille displaying an SS emblem.
More potent editions of the 396 engine, developing 350 or 375 horsepower (280 kW) also made the options list. Options included power windows and locks.
The background artwork of the Tee illustrates ‘Chevrolet el Camino’ badge emblem in true factory script detail, in chromium style font within the fames of the artwork. The background artwork is of ‘life like’ bright orange and red flames surrounding the El Camino’s badge emblem script.
