For Sale: 1971 Chevrolet El Camino in Concord, North Carolina

$21,995

Vehicle Description

With the handsome good looks of a Chevelle and the utility of a pickup, the El Camino offers the best of both worlds: performance and practicality. This 1971 El Camino has been custom built to further blur that muscle car/pickup line with a performance 350 V8, great looks, and added comfort.


A modern aggressive red is an awesome color on an El Camino, giving it a slick style that disguises the pickup truck practicality hiding within. The finish is in good order with a few signs of use, but overall it has the unbeatable shine of a modern clearcoat. So, it will attract plenty of attention going down the road and when you show up for local cruise nights. Of course the black SS stripes, badges on every side, hood pins, and a cowl induction hood all gain instant respect. We always love the El Caminos because they take the Chevelles iconic design and give it rarer, and more interesting sheetmetal. So you see the familiar features like the shapely grille, single headlight design, bright trim, and classic SS wheels. And you can justify your purchase even more because this one also has the practicality of a truck bed.


More of the Chevelle DNA is shared on the inside with the dash and door panels showing their comfortable car-like roots. The same goes for the front bench seat that's been upgraded to a soft cloth. You get the grippy factory SS steering wheel, and beyond that is the factory-issued extra long speedometer along with dual auxiliary gauges placed front and center. You'll also note that this one carries some modern upgrades for convenience, including the always-welcomed cup holders and a new Sony AM/FM/CD stereo.


Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch V8 that's dressed to impress. There's plenty of shine on the air cleaner and valve covers; the belts and hoses look fresh; and the bold spark plug wires are nice and tidy – so you know this is the kind of machine made to lift its hood wherever it parks. But beyond just appearances, this V8 was built to run. It's a GM crate motor that inhales deeply with a Holley Double Pumper four-barrel carburetor and Holley Street Dominator intake. The V8 exhales with authority thanks to long tube headers that feed the Flowmaster dual exhaust with performance H-pipe construction. All this power gets to the ground through GM's sturdy TH350 three-speed automatic transmission on its way to the stout 10-bolt rear end. Taking this mean machine out for a cruise is no problem with great diving features such as power steering, front power disc brakes, and the modern grip of Firestone Firehawk Indy 500 tires at all four corners.


Complete with owner's manual, you're probably doing a double take on the price right now. After all, a '71 Chevelle in the same great condition would cost a lot more. It's amazing this cool El Camino gives you extra distinction and rarity for thousands less... but only if you call now!
