The El Camino has an interesting social status that gives it plenty
of personality. After all, it's hard not to love a vehicle that's
both a comfy cruiser and a versatile pickup. But when it's been
given an upgraded 350 V8, custom paint, a loaded A/C interior, and
a custom SS-style look - well then, the desire for this 1979
Chevrolet El Camino reaches far beyond its affordable price.
You already know there was a ton spent on the paint. The Sunburst Orange was borrowed from the Hummers, and it has the exact right kind of shine you want to draw attention to a custom like this. After all, they also invested heavily in the bodywork. It has a custom aerodynamic SS-style front end from the later years, shaved door handles, flush rear roll pan, and a smooth hard tonneau cover. The result is a very sleek-looking machine. And they really got the standout details right with the full custom pinstriping package, billet grille, and polished torque thrust-style wheels. Plus, everyone will be talking about those awesome Cadillac taillights that are so well integrated that they look like this came from the factory that way. Even with all these great looks, this El Camino still has a practical side. That's why there's liner paint in the truck bed.
Pop the remote door openers to see a loaded interior. You get plush velour that lets you choose between seating three across or folding the individual armrests for a bucket-level of comfort. This one comes loaded with power windows, power locks, an AM/FM/CD stereo, and ice-cold air conditioning. The factory dual-spoke steering wheel gives you a great view of the full gauge panel, including large speedo and tach.
This one is dressed to impress under the hood. The polished air topper, valve covers, alternator, compressor, piping, upgraded pulleys, and so much more look terrific in the gloss black engine bay. And when you look beyond the style, you'll see the substance of a 350 cubic-inch V8 with performance upgrades like a Holley dual-fed four-barrel carburetor and HEI ignition. The dual exhaust has a great sound, and you'll enjoy it plenty, because this one was truly built for motoring. There have been enhancements like a Hotchkis rear suspension upgrade, power steering, and front disc brakes. This one is built for long distances, too, with a cruise control and 700R4 four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, the aluminum radiator w/dual electric fans will help keep this El Camino running cool even if you're in traffic with the A/C pumping.
Complete with owner's manual, this is the ideal classic that has been given solid investments for show and go. So at a price like this, you know this custom won't stay here long. Call today!!!
