800 Derita Road, Ste. A
In the 1980s Choo-Choo Customs did exactly what we all wished the factory would have. They utilized the Monte Carlo SS front end on the El Camino. Now this low-mileage example of a factory-backed custom build is also a loaded V8 survivor offered at quite a nice price.
There's pretty good reason why you might not have heard about a Choo-Choo Customs El Camino SS. They were rare. Less than 5,000 were produced over a five-year period. But more than just rarity, the cool factor on this is elevated because it's a GM-backed custom build. We all think utilizing the NASCAR-inspired aerodynamics of the Monte Carlo SS would be a no brainier on the similar El Camino, but instead Chevy sent production to be hand completed at Choo-Choo's facility before being sold through GM's dealers. The Choo-Choo Customs El Camino SS package included the aerodynamic front, special Designer Series door handle inserts, and a power bulge hood. But even if you didn't know how special this vehicle was, you'd find it quite attractive. The black paint gives it a striking look, and it has a nice gloss to show off on of the sleeked generations of El Caminos. The clean look of the tailgate with the turn signals integrated into the bumpers looks like a custom piece, but it was just a well-designed Chevy. Add in plenty of bright trim and color-matched updated Rally wheels, and you have a classic that looks far more substantial than its affordable price.
The interior is a nice mix of premium and sporty. It starts with dual bucket seats finished in a plush velour. In-between is a center console finished with plenty of wood-like trim that's also on the dash and around the steering wheel for a nice uniform look. The whole interior has the look and feel of nice vintage machine.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. Chevy small block power is a terrific way to get power in a stout package. This 305 cubic-inch V8 inhales deeply from a four-barrel carburetor, and it exhales with a sweet sound from the upgraded X-pipe dual exhaust. You'll love this El Camino as an easy all-day cruiser with features such as power steering, front disc brakes, and the four-speed automatic transmission with overdrive.
This distinct Choo-Choo El Camino is exactly what you're looking for when you want to stand out. Which is why we know it won't stay here long at this price. Call today!!!
