Asked by Dec 13, 2015 at 09:47 AM about the 1979 Chevrolet El Camino

Question type: General

Just trying to find out if my El Camino is an SS
because it has 57,000 original miles and would
be worth the original restore to me if so. I would
really appreciate some knowledge in this area or
how I can find out elsewhere. Thank you

All the El Caminos are worth restoring- go for it!! and hop up that engine so you can have El Malo Camino-

I am of the same opinion. I guess I should have worded my ? differently. I have checked the Vin code and my el Camino does have the original 350 with 56,000 miles on her,original bucket seats , 3 speed automatic transmission on the floor , although the paint job is not original and I believe it may be an SS I just don't know how to tell. Once I realized what the original milage is there isn't a question of whether to restore or not just need to know the ss? to decide if I will restore to original ss beauty or go all out custom beast. Any info on how to identify would be fly.
