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!
