Wife says Must Sell!
The warmed-over 350 cubic inch V8 offers an Edelbrock aluminum intake, matching 4-barrel carburetor, and an open-element air cleaner. The engine bay is clean, with a few dress-up items such as chrome valve covers . The transmission is a TH350 3-speed automatic and lives between the pipes of a nice-sounding dual exhaust system with ceramic headers just ahead of the rear axle (which is a heavy-duty 12-bolt, by the way). The stock suspension has been lowered a bit to give it a low, mean look that is still fully functional on the street.
This is a really nice car, er, truck. None of the upgrades have compromised its utility, but its driveability and performance have been greatly enhanced. That stout small block sounds awesome and you won't be keeping a low profile. Just installed brand new American Racing chrome rim and BF Goodrich tires. New shocks and alignment.. This truck is ready to cruise or rock and roll. Call it a truck, call it a car, either way you're going to love this El Camino. Call today!

Showing just over 37,000 miles and in what looks like clean original condition, the sport coupe was apparently imported directly from an owner in Japan, where it was “well-maintained,” according to […]
