This 1972 Chevrolet El Camino is a deep and dark mean machine - and it even has a performance-built big block under the hood to back it all up. And as you dig into the details, everything from the tilt column to the overdrive transmission proves that this power car is also a solid all-around driver.
The black paint looks striking. It's a more modern application, and so while the car is as dark as midnight, it also has a metallic element that also loves to radiate in the noon sunshine. Plus, the blackout grille, black bed liner paint, and cowl hood are all part of this dark intimidation. And while you get plenty of the classic muscle car vibes, there's also a brighter side that shows off modern upgrades. This includes the crystal clear headlights and REV 17-inch polished alloys that let you fit proper modern tires. And as you look over the full package, you start to see the right mix of vintage and new on a classic that's impressive but road-ready. And that's the kind of combination that's terrific for real classic car lovers.
The interior is nicely detailed with a stylish bench seat, smooth dash, good carpeting, and even the dome light greets you when the door opens. There are some features that you may want to restore, like the radio, tach, and this even was once a factory A/C Chevy. But what you can appreciate from day one is the driver-ready feel of the NK4 sports steering wheel on a tilt column, a full set of auxiliary readouts, and a sweet rumble from the means powerhouse under the hood.
The engine bay was made to show off. After all, the clean inner fenders display the tidy big block, and there's plenty of polish on the valve covers, air grabber, radiator shroud, pulleys, and more. This 454 cubic-inch V8 has been built for extra muscle with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, Weiand aluminum intake, and long tube headers that feed into the dual exhaust. There have also been investments in the right supporting pieces such as a serpentine belt system, MSD ignition, and aluminum radiator with electric fan. It's a powerful car, and so there's a 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission that connects to the 12-bolt rear end. The transmission is not only a stout unit, but it also gives you easy cruising overdrive. And that good driver feeling continues with features like power steering, power brake with discs up front, and modern performance tires.
Complete with build receipts, this is a big power El Camino that also has poise. So you know it's a special muscle machine that you want to get your hands on right now. Call today!!!
