In today's automotive landscape, most spectators like to make hard
distinctions between cars and trucks. Maybe it's an adverse
reaction to excellent crossovers continually gaining share. Maybe
its insecurity over sedans slowly becoming a niche product. Or
maybe it's fear of electricity and autonomy completely redefining
what a car is. Whatever the case, cars and trucks have always
emanated from a common wellspring. For example, Ford's immortal
Model A was produced in a wide array of body styles. The two-box
sedans of the 1940s could be considered the largest precursor to
modern crossovers. And today, most major OEMs are switching to
modular vehicle platforms that can spawn everything from a sporty
three-door to a full-size pickup. All that said, NOWHERE has this
all-inclusive mindset been cooler, or more successful, than
Chevrolet's storied El Camino. And this exceptional Camino
resto-mod is a choice classic that combines a spry Chevrolet
Performance LS3 with an upgraded suspension, six forward gears and
timeless, all-American appeal!
NOTHING BETTER THAN A RED AND BLACK CHEVY!
It's hard not to smile when you see a Chevy this cool! Decked in
brilliant Cranberry Red base that's centered on Tuxedo Black war
paint, this ultimate ute is the product of acute restoration that
was founded on a great mix of aesthetics and streetability. At the
front of the car, a split Super Sport grille hangs a prominent "SS"
emblem between a small "CHEVROLET" script, chrome-trimmed
headlights and a broad chrome bumper. At the top of that clip, a
pinned Cowl Induction Hood leads a stainless-trimmed greenhouse
that's laced in tight vinyl and reflected in polished mirrors.
Below those mirrors, stylish rocker trim joins clean marker lamps
to frame bright door handles, classy "El Camino" lettering and
upsized "SS" badging. And at the back of the car, a bowtie-branded
tailgate centers a requisite Super Sport banner between simple
taillights, a painted bed and a second broad bumper.
NOTHING BETTER THAN A SMALL BLOCK CHEVY!
Toss the hood and you'll find 6.2 liters of divine GM small block.
Officially known as the Chevrolet Performance LS376/480, that
trusty engine twists a respectable 495 horsepower into 473 lb./ft.
of pavement-slaying torque! At the top of the block, a color-keyed
Cold Air Intake slinks breeze through a polished tube to a proven
GM throttle body. Smooth GM electronic fuel injection lines a
composite GM intake and rectangular-port L92-style heads. Factory
coils fire hot GM plug wires. A nodular crank, powdered connecting
rods and hypereutectic pistons provide stout 10.7 to 1 compression.
A hydraulic roller cam maximizes intake efficiency. Speaking of
breathing, that smooth valvetrain funnels spent gases through
coated Hooker manifolds. There's a beefy aluminum radiator that's
slid between a painted support and twin puller fans. A polished
serpentine drive spins a polished alternator opposite a polished AC
compressor. And, as you likely deduced from our high-resolution
photos, the fresh mill rolls in a clean, Satin Black frame that's
finished with niceties like polished brake components, a quality
Holley oil pan and familiar Corvette fuel rail covers.
NOTHING BETTER THAN A SORTED RESTO-MOD!
At the bottom of this Camino, a tough Tremec 6-speed sends power to
a dressed 12-bolt axle. That stellar drivetrain is held in place by
a rebuilt factory suspension that's supplemented with a beefy sway
bar and tubular control arms. That suspension turns quick thanks to
factory-style power steering. At the corners, power-assisted
calipers squeeze a quartet of drilled and slotted rotors.
Aluminized exhaust weaves its way through an H-shaped crossover,
aggressive dual-chamber mufflers and polished stainless tips. And
power meets the pavement via traditional Chevrolet Rallies, which
spin 225/70R15 BF Goodrich Radial T/As in front of 275/60R15 BF
Goodrich Radial T/As.
NOTHING BETTER THAN DRIVING A CLASSIC!
Swing the doors and you'll find a tasteful leather interior that's
been cleverly customized in all the right ways. Centered in those
coy components is a duo of power-operated buckets that were cribbed
directly from a modern GTO. In front of those thrones, a
monochromatic dash frames crisp Dakota Digital VHX telemetry next
to modern air conditioning and modern, direct-fit audio. Below that
dash, clean carpet, protected by color-keyed mats, anchors a
factory console around a traditional Hurst shifter. That carpet
crawls to ornate door panels. And the driver spins a stylish,
wood-rimmed steering wheel around a tilting column.
If you're a fan of strength, class or presence, it doesn't get much
better than this cool El Camino! A unique combination of gratuitous
power and timeless style, this killer Chevy is a well-done classic
that'll be a blast on the road and a hit at the show. Don't miss
