800 Derita Road, Ste. A
When a Chevy gets Super Sport badging, you want something special, right? How about a 454 big block with a ton of go-fast goodies? And some nitrous on top? Now you're really talking about a serious muscle machine. And as you dig deeper into this 1971 Chevrolet El Camino you'll also see the right features to properly handle all that power.
El Camino always looks great in black. After all, they share the same muscle car good looks as a Chevelle. And speaking of big power flair, this also has bold red racing stripes, a cowl induction hood, hood pins, big exhaust tips, and a nice stance with extra meaty rear tires. So this has the proper style you want from a big block SS-style machine. But there's also something more. This custom build shows just a little extra care in the details. That's because we were told it spent nearly 30 years under the same owner.
The dark interior looks good as it mixes vintage style with upgrades. There's a nice look to the classic bucket seats, door panels, center console, and dash. You have convenient features like cup holders and power windows. This appeals to be a factory A/C car. But you will need to add back many of the components if you want it because most were removed for the sake of speed. In fact, speaking of power, you can tell this one was built for plenty of it. Behind the seat are controls for the upgraded ignition, Gear Vendors overdrive, and nitrous system. And you can see an added switch console ahead of the horseshoe shifter. So with all these speedy details, it's nice to have the steering wheel mounted on a tilt column. That way you know you have a clear view to the speedo, tach, and the upgraded readouts.
Under the hood is a clean and mean big block that's built for speed. This 454 cubic-inch V8 includes a Demon four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock Victor Jr. intake, and long tube headers that add power and rumble to the X-pipe dual exhaust. And that nitrous system you way means this has the power to really be the king of the blacktop. But you also need the proper control. That's why you have a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission, and it has a Gear Vendors overdrive to basically double your ratios for whenever you need to expand your powerband. This feeds a 12-bolt rear end fortified with Strange Engineering internals. And the rear also has strong Hotchkis components and a sway bar. Add in power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and wide Cooper Cobra tires, and this is an awesome total package that lets you enjoy all the power with ease.
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.
