Description of 1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS

With a performance-built 396 cubic-inch big block (and its blower) peeking out of the hood, sinisterly slick black cherry paint, custom bracing, four-wheel disc brakes, T-tops, and a beefy rear end, this 1970 Chevrolet El Camino needed to make sure the tailgate looked good because that's all most people will ever see. This one looks like it has glossy black when there's no light on it, but when you take this out into the sunshine, you see the deep richness... of black cherry. It gives this already mean-looking machine an extra sinister touch - like candy apple red went over to the dark side. Speaking of taking this El Camino out into the daylight, those standout dual stripes will color shift between purple and blue depending on the light. All merit given to excellent prep work and the use of House of Kolors paint. There's another reason you'll love to show off this midnight monster in the daytime - the bright work. It looks great on everything from the mirror-like chrome bumpers, to the headlight surrounds, to the Mickey Thompson wheels - especially those huge rear ones that let you know this big power machine needs big rubber. Even the details look great, as this gets aggressive with the SS-grille finished in red, hood pins, and dark tonneau cover that hides a few performance treats (more on that in a moment.) Inside it's a mix of serious street machine and custom luxury. After all, you step over the roll cage into a high-back bucket seat. Everything from the remote door poppers to the custom T-tops means this one will always make a lasting impression when you hop in. You get iconic elements like the horseshoe shifter in the center console, but there has been a solid investment in also updating the whole interior. You see it in everything from the AM/FM/CD/XM stereo with upgraded speakers, to power windows, to the VDO gauges with huge AutoMeter Sport-Comp tach mounted in the center. Plus, the Grant GT steering wheel is mounted on a tilt column that is painted to match the exterior stripes - yes this build is that thoughtful and custom. Before we go through all the performance upgrades to this big block, take a moment to enjoy how well the whole package has been put together. Glossy inner fender walls, bright pulleys, steel-braided hoses, tidy belts, and of course, all the polished components that range from the valve covers to the brake booster. We bet you love how that huge air grabber sticks out of the hood with style thanks to the ridges being painted to match the exterior stripes. So you're probably going to win awards with this flair alone. But underneath all this flash is the substance of a 396 cubic-inch V8 enhanced with go-fast goodies such as a 6-71 Weiand blower, dual Holley four-barrel carburetors, Moroso cast valve covers, and Hooker long tube headers. The whole package is estimated at 600+ horsepower, and the thunderous sound from the Pypes Race Pro mufflers lets everyone know it. All this power needs the best in control, that's why you have a TCI400 three-speed automatic transmission - this is stout enough to manually row through the gears when you want to. Plus, you have a strong four-link rear end with coilovers and a Panhard rod, Wilwood four-wheel disc brakes, and large 31x18 Mickey Thompson rear tires. As you look in the truck bed, you'll see more custom steel bracing and the fuel cell relocated for good traction. But as much at this is a custom-built quarter-mile king, it can still be tamed thanks to features like power steering. Not at all subtle, but a wonderful blend of hardcore performance and show car appeal, this El Camino is going to attract a crowd. So the only thing quicker than the coupe is how fast this deal will leave our showroom. Call today!!!
