Here's a 1970 Chevrolet El Camino that has a serious small block
powerhouse, four-on-the-floor, and undeniably classic good looks.
It makes for an appealing vintage machine that's also offered for a
We always love the '70 El Caminos because of the iconic design.
There's the muscle car inspired front end with the wide four-round
headlight setup. And that hint of aggression continues on the
competition-style American Racing Torq Thrust wheels with extra
meaty rear tires. The Autumn Gold is the correct color for this El
Camino. We won't pretend the paint and body are perfect, but that
kind of keeps it in-line with a muscle car/truck bruiser attitude
you can have with this one. If that's not to your tastes, the value
price means there's also room in your budget for a fresh respray.
And when a classic is as complete as this one, it feels right no
matter if it's a starting point or your confident cruiser.
The black interior offers a mixture of correct components and
worthwhile upgrades. The upholstery, headliner, and door panels all
have a quality look and feel. The wide bench seat has room for up
to three people, and behind it there's a surprising amount of room
for storage. You get a very car-like setup that also includes
comforts like a proper heat/vent controls and an upgraded AM/FM/CD
stereo with USB input. Plus, this is a well-done driver setup with
a three spoke sports steering wheel, a tilt column, and auxiliary
gauge trio. And the column-mounted tach is an especially handy
upgrade to go with the Hurst floor shifter.
Under the hood is a hot small block nestled in a tidy engine bay.
This is a 350 cubic-inch V8 with a four-bolt main. It has the right
upgrades, like aluminum heads, an Edelbrock Performer air gap
intake, aluminum valve covers, and topped with Edelbrock AVS
four-barrel carburetor. Hedman headers add even more power while
letting this V8 exhale with power into the Turbo muffler dual
exhaust. It's a quality power package that starts, idles, and
drives well. You get full control over it with the smooth shifting
four-speed manual transmission. Add power steering and wide BF
Goodrich T/As and this is an El Camino that's easy to enjoy.
Complete with owner's manual, you're looking at strong driving
classic offered at an affordable price. Call now!
