A beautiful car/truck, this El Camino was treated to an extensive restoration approximately one year ago and has been driven less than 100 miles since. The engine was built and Edelbrock's Performance 454 package was installed. MSD Fuel Injection was installed. A Richmond 4-Speed bullet-proof manual transmission has also been installed. The Tuxedo Black exterior paint is in exceptional condition. The sheetmetal is very straight and the paint quality is high. The doors, hood, and trunk lid are correctly aligned. This is a very nice Chevelle / El Camino that is fresh all over. It has Vintage Air A/C and Heat.
The body has been dressed with Super Sport stripes adorning the hood and SS badging throughout. The radial tires were replaced during the restoration. Under the hood is a healthy built 396 cubic inch V8. This powerplant was fitted with Edelbrock's 454 Performance Package including the aluminum intake manifold & performance street cam. The ignition and induction are upgraded. MSD Fuel-Injection provides plenty of fuel and is paired with a hand-held diagnostic controller box in-cabin. The exhaust system is a custom full 3-inch X-pipe system with MagnaFlow mufflers.
The engine compartment is clean and detailed throughout. The firewall, inner fenders, and core support sheetmetal is in excellent condition. The interior has been custom restored and features dual bucket seating with a center console. The upholstery shows well throughout this El Camino. Check out that vintage Sun tach.
The dash features the original instrumentation along with a vintage column-mounted Sun tachometer. Also, the steering wheel is a beautiful teakwood 3-spoke unit. The Richmond 4-Speed Manual Transmission features a HURST shifter. This is a very stout transmission, purchased new in box and installed approximately 100 miles ago. This is a powerful truck and a pleasure to drive. There is a trio of aftermarket gauges in a small cluster under the dash for the voltage, oil pressure, and water temperature.
The bed has been protective coated in the interior and is in good condition throughout. The wheels of choice are factory GM Rallys fitted with B.F. Goodrich Radial T/As all around. (235/60R15 front & 255/60R15 rear) The undercarriage is mostly original and solid. The shocks have been replaced recently and the brakes overhauled. The 12-bolt rear end is stout. The original framework shows very well throughout. There is some minor rust through in a few areas of the floor pans, photographed above, altogether solid and intact. The door panels are in good condition and the door undersides are solid.
