Charles Currie's love for 1965 Chevelles found him on the look out for a 1965 El Camino to add to his collection. He started with a very tired California car (see 'before' photos) that required a frame-off restoration to bring it back to life. After 2 years at Kev's Rod & Custom in LaHabra, Ca., and every nut and bolt being replaced or refurbished, Charles now how this beauty that you see here in his stable!
