Description for Chevrolet El Camino 1972

With the handsome good looks of a Chevelle and the utility of a pickup, he El Camino offers the best of both worlds: performance and practicality. This incredible big block-powered 1972 El Camino has been built to further blur the lines that separate vehicles: big performance, reat looks, nd a lot of comfort.The point wasn't to build a restored stocker or a pedigree car, ut rather a vicious performer that has show-stopping looks. There's an argument to be made that the single-headlight look is the most attractive of the bunch, nd you can't argue with the bright yellow paint in terms of eyeball appeal. The bodywork is beautifully finished and the workmanship is shown to great effect thanks to the fresh two-stage urethane paint job. These vehicles typically led harder lives than your average Chevelle, nd finding a clean one, et along investing enough to bring it to this condition, s tough. Gaps are good and a lot of time was invested in getting the body panels this straight. A few details were shaved, ncluding all the emblems, nd a cowl-induction hood was fitted to give it just the right aggressive look. The grille was blacked out and the bed is fitted with a rubber mat, ust in case you want to actually do some work with this one.Custom ProCar bucket seats offer a new look that matches the exterior. They're aggressive, ure, ut this car has the kind of performance that needs that kind of body-hugging hardware. Carpets, eadliner, nd door panels are reproduction pieces that look good and fit right, nd in basic black, t's hard to go wrong. The dash is original, ut a few Moon Eyes gauges have been fitted in a custom engine-turned panel, long with a period tach mounted under the dash. There is no stereo, ut Vintage Air supplied one of their direct-fit systems that makes it look like a factory-installed system, nd with modern hardware working behind the scenes, t's quite effective. Power steering, ower brakes, nd an automatic transmission all make this a no-compromises hobby car that's a blast to drive. If your idea of entertainment runs more towards G-forces rather than decibels, ou'll be relieved to know that the engine is packing heat. The big block V8 was built by NHRA legend Joey Gross about 6000 miles ago, nd you'd better believe it's nasty. It was punched out to 462 cubic inches, itted with 10:1 pistons, Comp Cams 280 Extreme camshaft, oller rockers on a set of Edelbrock aluminum heads and a high-flow oil pump. Induction is handled by a Quick Fuel Technologies 750 double pumper carburetor and an Edelbrock Air-Gap intake manifold, nd there's a beautiful set of Hedman headers handling the dual 3" exhaust. There's a big aluminum radiator up front, long with a trick billet aluminum accessory drive setup made by March Performance that makes the big block look super sanitary. The transmission is a built TH400 3-speed automatic feeding a 12-bolt rear with 3.42 gears on a Posi, o you shouldn't have concerns about dropping the loud pedal now and then. The suspension is upgraded with parts from CPP, o it sits right, nd traditional-looking Billet Specialties wheels stuff the wheel wells, earing 245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear performance radials.This is a really nice car, r, ruck. The motor sounds downright vicious blowing through those pipes, nd you won't be keeping a low profile with that bright yellow paint. But if there are times when you just feel like relaxing, he air-conditioned interior is a great place to be. Call it a truck, all it a car, ither way you're going to love this El Camino. Call today!
