If you're unhappy with your Chevelle's lack of trunk space, allow us to suggest an alternative: this awesome Rally Red 1971 El Camino, complete with a 454 cubic inch big block under the hood. Although horsepower was down in 1971, the styling was a high-water mark for the A-bodies and many find them to be the most attractive of all. With an older restoration that still looks and drives extremely well, this El Camino belongs at the top of your shopping list if you're looking for inexpensive, practical fun. Looking extremely handsome in bright red with a black vinyl top, this El Camino was repainted about eight years ago, and it's holding up very well. Thanks to limited use and great care by a hobbyist, its working days are probably over, so shining up the paint on a Saturday afternoon is routine. Panel gaps are pretty good considering that this is half truck, and the cowl induction hood gives it an aggressive look. Black SS stripes were added, along with appropriate SS454 badges in all the correct locations, completing the transformation. All the chrome and stainless, including the trim around the pickup bed, is in very good condition with few signs of hard labor behind it. A blacked-out SS grille up front looks correct and is in excellent condition. The black interior is as nice as the body, with a comfortable bench seat and plenty of legroom up front. A correct SS interior has been installed, with accurate door panels with SS badges, and new black carpets and headliner to match. The dash is original, with functional gauges and a beautiful dash pad. The stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/cassette head unit, and you'll notice that this Elky includes factory air. The steering wheel is a later OEM piece that fits well in the vintage passenger compartment, along with heavy-duty rubber floor mats that protect the replacement carpet set. The engine is a 1968 vintage big block out of a truck, but it is dressed appropriately for duty in the El Camino. With Chevy Orange paint, factory single-snorkel air cleaner, and original style exhaust manifolds, it could easily pass for an OEM installation. The alternator is a newer piece, and the plug wires are aftermarket. Underneath, the TH400 3-speed automatic is from the same donor truck, and drives what appears to be the original rear end. To help with load carrying abilities, helper springs have been installed out back, along with relatively recent shocks all around. The front disc brakes show signs of recent maintenance, and the dual exhaust system sounds great without being annoyingly loud. It rolls on a set of handsome 15-inch Rally wheels wearing 215/70/15 Uniroyal radials. Look at the photos again, then the price. This is a clean, solid El Camino with big block power and a great paint job. OK, maybe the whitewalls aren't the hot ticket, but that's an easy fix, and it certainly doesn't detract from this truck's handsome profile. El Caminos like this are not easy to find, and the market is starting to catch on that these are really Chevelles in work clothes, and they perform much the same with a unique look all their own. For a fun, big block muscle car with enough practicality to work for a living, you could hardly do better than this great-looking '71. Call today!
