With the handsome good looks of a Chevelle and the utility of a pickup, the El Camino offers the best of both worlds: performance and practicality. This 1972 El Camino has been built to further blur the lines that separate vehicles-big performance, great looks, and a lot of comfort. The bodywork is nicely finished and the workmanship is shown to great effect thanks to the fresh two-tone paint job. These vehicles typically led harder lives than your average Chevelle, and finding a clean one, let along investing enough to bring it to this condition, is tough. Trim is bright and well maintained, with good chrome on the bumpers, a stock grille, and the trim around the bed is very nice, with no obvious dings or damage from use. I applaud the builder who was able to resist the temptation to make an SS clone, and instead presents an honest Elkie with no stories that's ready to rumble. Custom upholstery on the original bench gives it a new look that matches the exterior. Carpets, headliner, and door panels are reproduction pieces that look good and fit right. The dash is original, but a few Auto Meter gauges have been fitted, along with a period tach mounted on the steering column. A custom stereo system, which features an AM/FM/CD stereo head unit, powers a pair of powerful subwoofers in a custom enclosure behind the seats. Factory A/C, along with power steering, power brakes, and an automatic transmission all make this a no-compromises hobby car that's a blast to drive. If your idea of entertainment runs more towards G-forces rather than decibels, you'll be relieved to know that the engine is packing heat. The 350 cubic inch V8 was rebuilt about 3000 miles ago, and now offers Edelbrock heads and intake, as well as a 4-barrel carburetor. The engine bay is sanitary and clean, with a few dress-up items from Edelbrock. Block-hugging headers dump into a custom dual exhaust system with glasspack-style mufflers that sound awesome. The transmission is a TH350 3-speed automatic feeding a 10-bolt rear, so you shouldn't have concerns about putting this Elky back to work on Saturdays. The stock suspension sits right, and Pacer aluminum wheels stuff the wheel wells, wearing 245/60/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. This is a really nice car, er, truck. None of the upgrades have compromised its utility (well, OK, I wouldn't haul a pallet of bricks with those shiny aluminum wheels), but its drivability and performance have been greatly enhanced. The motor sounds downright vicious blowing through those pipes, and you won't be keeping a low profile with that two-tone paint. But if there are times when you just feel like relaxing, the gorgeous interior is a great place to be. Turn on the A/C, crank up your favorite tunes, and enjoy the ride. Call it a truck, call it a car, either way you're going to love this El Camino. Call us today! This vehicle is located in our Dallas/Fort Worth showroom.
