We know you already love the look of a deep, dark 1970 Chevrolet El Camino, but look a little closer at this SS. Although we do not have the buildsheet to prove it is a real SS, the "L" on the cowl tag makes it likely. It has the presentation of a real SS, a performance LS5 big block, and a freshness all around (including the undercarriage) that proves they built this one to be truly enjoyed on the open road.

The black paint makes such a bold first impression, and it kicks off the long list of large investments made in this El Camino. And we know exactly why this deserves that kind on time/money/effort. After all, 1970 has the single-year face of arguably the most celebrated icon of the muscle car era. So it needs to be treated with respect. That's why you not only get a mirror-like black, but also they made sure the panels lined up nicely before the first drop of paint went on. Even the white SS stripes are painted on. That's why the sunlight loves to dance seamlessly across the body. There's a premium feeling to this classic in everything from the black vinyl roof to the super-slick chrome bumpers. But there's also an undeniable aggression in this one thanks to the dark SS grille, correct Mag-style wheels, lock-down pins, and the genuine cowl induction hood.

The full black interior joins the exterior paint and vinyl roof to deliver the ultra-desirable triple-black total package. And just like the exterior, there's a freshness here that lets you know they have cared for this classic. This has all the vintage performance elements you want, including bucket seats, a center console in-between, horseshoe shifter, dual-spoke SS steering wheel, and the full round gauge package with large speedo and tach. Plus, you see some great subtle upgrades. A larger water temp readout has been cleanly installed, and there's a retro-style AM/FM digital tuner. And while you have upgraded music in this Chevy, we really know your favorite soundtrack begins under the hood.

The engine bay continues this classic's exceptional fresh and crisp look. This 454 cubic-inch big block has all the right pieces in place, like the bold orange block, bright valve covers, and the gasket around that air grabber to seal it to the cowl induction hood. And as you look a little closer, you're going to spot some nice performance upgrades, including an Edelbrock intake and a new Holley four-barrel carburetor. This V8 fires up readily and makes a terrific sound with the newer H-pipe dual exhaust setup. And the TH400 three-speed automatic transmission is stout enough to deliver all the power to the 12-bolt Positraction rear end. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll not only see nice features like sway bars front & rear, but plenty of components that look fresh from investment right down to the urethane bushings. That all this results in an extra solid feeling on the road you don't get from many classics. Plus, with power steering and power brakes w/discs up front, this is a powerful El Camino that's also easy to show off near or far.

The sale comes complete with owner's manual and maintenance records. This is the cut-above icon you've been waiting for, and it's ready to run right now. So don't miss out, call today!
