800 Derita Road, Ste. A
With bright teal paint, quality A/C interior, and a sharp-looking overall style, this 1964 Chevrolet El Camino makes for an awesome cruiser. But when you see there's also a powerful stroker motor living under the hood, you'll realize this is both a beauty and a beast.
Teal is a great shade to represent a 1960s classic. But there's also a bright modern shine and a hint of metallic that tell you there's more going on here. We're told this was given a full restoration around 2002 and that the mileage reflects only what was done since completion. Those are already good stats, but the overall condition tells you there was an even higher level of care. It's all part of a package where the panels are straight, gaps are even, and doors shut solid. Even the clean Chevelle grille, complete trim, and bright form-fitting bumpers just give a nice shine. Color-matched liner paint and thick rubber mat remind you that an El Camino was made to work, but this one is too pretty for the gravel pit... However, the competition-style American Racing wheels hint that it can still haul on the asphalt.
The interior mixes luxury with show-level quality. It starts with a bench seat that has been contoured for a more individual kind of support. It feels supple with tan leather and cream suede inserts. Not only were the door panels done to match, but also the headliner and dash pad are finished in coordinating leather. This has well-integrated comfort upgrades, like the retro-style AM/FM stereo with Bluetooth and cold-blowing air conditioning. You'll love the performance feel that comes from the grip of the wooden steering wheel, Hurst floor shifter, and a dash dominated by the white-faced AutoMeter gauge package.
The engine bay continues the car's show-ready style. You have clean color-matched inner walls, a tidy setup, plenty of shine, and there are even cool/classic details like the washer refill bottle mounted on the fender. And within all this style is also plenty of substance. The callouts tell us that this 350ci motor has been stroked for 383 cubic-inch total. This V8 has been built with the right performance components, like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an aluminum intake, and Hooker headers that feed the rumbling Magnaflow dual exhaust. It also has the right supporting pieces, like an MSD ignition, Optima red top battery, and an aluminum radiator with electric fans. The motor fires up with an eagerness that wants to hit the road, and so this powerful El Camino was also built to be a great cruiser. You have a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs. Plus, the Chevelle-based suspension makes for a fine balance of muscle car and easy driver.
This is a quality and powerful classic pickup/coupe with all the upgrades you want. So don't let this restored El Camino slip away. Call now!
