[isdntekvideo] 1980 Chevy El Camino Restomod

Up for sale is my personal 1980 El Camino that has been custom built to a high standard. The definition of Restomod is a classic vehicle with a completely upgraded power-train, suspension,and comfort features to provide modern day power, handling and safety in a beloved old ride. We think this classic Elk checks all those boxes.
We have tried to present a comprehensive look at the vehicle through video clips and large format still photos. Unfortunately the bright sunlight impacted some of the photos but hopefully the quality of this build still shows through. This truck has been my personal driver and I have no reservations on taking it anywhere. We have tried to show in our video segments how nicely it goes down the road in comfort and style. There is Power Steering for ease of maneuvering and control. Vintage A/C blows super cold. Wilwood Hydroboost Disc Brakes provide excellent stopping power. The vehicle currently has 68,714 miles which may go up some as it is being driven. I consider it to be a a driver, not a trailer queen!
Here is a summary of a few of the main upgrades of this build. As you scroll through the photos you will note many additional touches that make this a very desirable and complete custom El Camino and one that is totally roadworthy.
