1972 El Camino
This is a great driver car for cruise nights, etc.
It is badged as an SS model and in 72, that was difficult to tell if it was a factory option as there are no data cards that state the SS option. The cowl tag and the VIN do not list the SS option.
The cowl tag and VIN do let us know that this car started out in Kansas City , MO built in the Leeds plant.
It has been in CT for at least 10 years.
It came from the factory with a 350 2bbl V8, which is still believed to be the original engine in the car. The original paint was Burnished Copper Metallic and it was repainted in a similar color several years ago. The interior was originally black vinyl which has been changed out to an ivory/cream color, which in my opinion, looks better than the black with the current burgundy metallic paint.
The car runs and drives great and looks the 70's part with the Cragar mags and the staggered tire sizes, 255/60's in back, 235/60's up front.
The car comes sparsely equipped which was typical of the day. It does have AC (blows cool, not cold.. could use a recharge) and power steering. It has 4 wheel, non-power, drum brakes.
The car has had the brake master cylinder replaced, along with the alternator and a new true dual exhaust. The sounds the part as well as looks it.
She is rot free and there isn't a whole lot of surface rust to be seen either.
The 126,000 mile V8 puts out roughly 165HP and 250lb.ft through a three speed auto trans and files it back to a GM 10 bolt rear.
A great looking car that shows some of her age, runs and drives well, sounds great.
She can be enjoyed for $22,000
