1971 Chevrolet El Camino
California Car, Blue Plates, 350 Crate, Automatic
1971 Chevrolet El Camino for sale. This California truck was originally finished in Cottonwood Green with a Dark Jade interior and equipped with a 350ci V8 and automatic, power steering, power front disc brakes, and air-conditioning. It was assembled in the Los Angeles (Van Nuys) plant and has been here in California since new.
The exterior was color changed to white a few years ago and looks nice and included door and tailgate jambs. The trim is a mix of original and new and presents well. It rides on factory steel wheels with proper caps and trim rings wrapped in P235/75 R15's. The tires are aging and should be replaced in the not-too-distant future. The bed has been coated and is straight and tidy. The floors and inner and outer rockers, wheel wells, and quarters are solid and rust-free. The car shows nicely; it is a good-looking driver-quality rust-free El Camino.
The interior is mostly original with new carpet and seat upholstery. It is comfortable and quiet, and all gauges and switches are in working order (though the window washer and the needle on the PRND is not moving when shifting). It has a nice headliner and dash as well. It was originally equipped with A/C, which is no longer present, but the vents and controller are present for an easy aftermarket install. It has under-dash gauges; oil pressure, voltage, and temperature. The aftermarket radio fits the original uncut dash, so a stock or retro system could easily be installed. The jack and stand are present though the spare is not.
The crate 350 starts right up and runs smooth and strong. The shifting is spot on, and the brakes and suspension feel good. The truck runs cool and doesn't smoke. It has an Edelbrock intake manifold and carburetor, chrome valve covers, dual exhaust, front disc brakes, power steering, power brakes, and a tow package. It is nice to drive, solid and tight.
