            1969

            Before the ‘El Camino’ was lettered.

            D/G = 9.50 to 10.99 {Weight-to-Cubic Inches}

            Tex would have had to have the ‘El Camino’ come in at {#3662 lbs.} to
            qualify for D/G in 1969 with the 396 Big-Block.

            The 1968 El Camino ‘SS 396’ had a Shipping Weight of #3367 lbs. and
            Curb Weight of #3510 lbs.

            In ‘Gas Class’, you could add #100 lbs. of Ballast, and you could also
            utilize ‘2’ Heavy-Duty Batteries with a maximum weight of #150 lbs.

              C/G

              1970 and later

              * C/G ….. 8.00 to 9.49 Wt/HP

              Maximum Ballast
              * 100 lbs. of Ballast permitted
              * 150 lbs. {Two Batteries permitted}

              “No Hidden Ballast”

              If ‘Tex’ was running a 427, the 1968 El Camino could weigh no less than #3416 lbs.

              If ‘Tex’ was running a 454, the 1968 El Camino could weigh no less than #3632 lbs.
