Description for Chevrolet El Camino 1973

73 EL CAMINO SS454 TURNED STREET BEASTCAR WAS PROFESSIONALLY BUILT AND IS AN ORIGINAL SS454 THAT WAS IN EXCELLENT CONDITION WHEN BUILT. THE ATTENTION TO DETAIL AND QUALITY WAS SUCH THAT IT WAS FEATURED IN A NATIONAL MAGAZINE SHORTLY AFTER BEING COMPLETED. CAR WAS PURCHASED 10 YRS AGO AT BARRETT JACKSON AND HAS BEEN METICULOUSLY MAINTAINED AND FRESHENED UP TO BE STREET FRIENDLY. WHEN ORIGINALLY BUILT IT WAS FUEL INJECTED WITH HIGH COMPRESSION AND RACE GAS USE ONLY CAPABLE OF 9 SECOND BLASTS DONE THE TRACK. NOW THE ENGINE HAS BEEN REBUILT USING ALL HIGH END FORGED COMPONENTS WITH TODAYS TECHNOLOGY AND IS PUMP GAS USER FRIENDLY SO IT CAN BE ENJOYED ON THE STREET. IT STILL PACKS A LETHAL PUNCH RUNNING MID 10S IN THE QUARTER MILE. NOT BAD FOR A 4000LB CAR. THE ENGINE WAS BUILT BY RMR ENGINES-RICHARD MIDGETTE RACING ENGINES-HE IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE GRAVE DIGGERS POWER PLANTS. IT FEATURES A BDS BLOWER. FULL ROLLER VALVE TRAIN. BIG BRODIE HEADS AND EDELBROCK CARBS THAT REALLY MAKE DRIVING THIS CAR EASY AND A BLAST. IT HAS A BUILT TURBO 400 TO HANDLE THE TORQUE OF THE BLOWN BEAST AND A DANA 60 TO PLANT THE POWER FOR WHEELS UP LAUNCHES. CAR COMES WITH WHEELIE BARS THAT ARE EASILY REMOVED AND INSTALLED. THE PAINT AND BODY WORK ARE BEAUTIFUL AND THE GRAPHICS WERE DECALS CLEARED OVER WHEN DONE ORIGINALLY. RESERVE IS MORE THAN REASONABLE ON THIS HIGH END BUILT CAR AND IS A FRACTION OF THE COST TO BUILD
