1966 Nova or 1965 El Camino Custom Hybrid - No Camino
What If Chevy Built The El Camino On The Compact Nova Instead Of The Chevelle In '66? Richard Crooker Decided To Find Out.

With the mechanical aspects of the car buttoned up Crooker looked to Roy Olson to apply the beautiful PPG 72060 Porsche Guards Red coating before Bill Knight finished it off with fine striping. The same red hue also adjoins Jim Mercado's subtle upholstery work covering the seating with rich gray cloth extending to the door panels displaying No Camino logos. Add in the cool breezes of Classic Auto Air, a stout audio system and a set of VDO instruments, and everything is right for road trips.
Since completing this special effort, the Crookers have logged thousands of miles in their No Camino so don't be surprised if you get to see their efforts first hand. Then you can add their names to a long list of rodding greats.
