For Sale: 1978 Chevrolet El Camino in Concord, North Carolina

Vehicle Description

This 1978 Chevrolet El Camino is a cool mix of style and substance. The upgraded paint has a great glow, and so do the polished components of the V8. Inside you'll find a stylishly comfortable package with leather seats and cold A/C. It makes for a very attractive classic offered for quite an affordable price.

GM never offered you color like this. The dark blue has a ton of metallic to let the car glow like a nighttime sky filled with stars. And with a bright look to the grille, rockers, trim, and chrome bumpers, this one really loves to stand out when the sunshine finds it. These final-generation El Caminos had a slick presentation, and the profile almost looks like the moonshiner-friendly business coupes of the '30s. And the color-matched hard tonneau cover gives you the same kind of cargo capacity while also adding to the sleek aerodynamic style. And the wide exhaust tips, torque thrust style wheels, and fresh raised white letter tires are also part of this sporty feeling.

The light tan interior tastefully contrasts the dark blue exterior. It sets a premium tone that goes well with the upgrades. The seats are now two later model high-back buckets with terrific bolstering and finished in supple leather. There are more upgrades including glossy wood-like trim, an armrest center console, an AM/FM/CD stereo with USB input for your iPhone, and air conditioning blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. The upgraded steering wheel is on a tilt column, and that gives you a clear view of the upgraded AutoMeter gauge package.

The engine bay has a nice look with the V8 getting a full polished upgrade. It deserves a little extra flair because there's also substance behind the style. A 305 cubic-inch V8 was the largest motor Chevy offered for this generation El Camino. This one takes the power further with a dual plenum air intake, an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, an Edelbrock intake, and shorty headers feeding into the dual exhaust. It warms up to be an easy all-day cruiser with features such as a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, front discs, and a car-like ride.

This El Camino has an impressive custom style and an overall presentation that you won't be afraid to hop in and enjoy at any time. So that makes for a great recipe for an all-around awesome classic... especially when it's also so affordable. Call now!
