HIGHLIGHTS: Super clean restoration! 396V8, 4-speed manual, power front disc brakes! Vintage Air A/C! MSD electronic ignition!

BODY OVERVIEW: The body on this El Camino is just as smooth and straight as can be! Built to be a high-quality weekend cruiser, it's no surprise how well this car turned out. Every body line is defined, and this car really pops!

PAINT CONDITION OVERVIEW: The paint on this El Camino is slick and smooth like calm water. Professionally painted in the 1971 Corvette color “Ontario Orange,” this El Camino is bound to stick out in any crowd. The paint has been kept up since it was built, and looks almost as if it could've been painted yesterday. This thing is a head turner!

INTERIOR CONDITION OVERVIEW: The black vinyl interior is a fantastic contrast to the exterior color, and nicely matches the black center stripes on the exterior. The interior is in nice, ready to go condition and much like the paint it still looks new. While the interior retains a mostly stock look at first, some mild custom touches have been added such as orange stitching, a modern radio and custom speaker boxes behind the seat, and a tasteful aftermarket steering wheel. The Vintage Air factory-style controls are a nice, subtle touch.

MECHANICAL OVERVIEW: Where to begin! Under the hood is a 396 big block Chevy, equipped with MSD HEI electronic ignition, a 4-barrel carburetor, Edlebrock aluminum intake, polished valve covers, polished brake master cylinder and alternator, and other good lookin' goodies. The 396 runs like a top, and the 4-speed shifts just right! This El Camino is also equipped with power brakes, including disc brakes on the front and 18” wheels. Finished off with dual exhaust and Magnaflow mufflers, this thing is ready to rip up the streets!

WHAT YOU'LL LOVE ABOUT THIS CAR: Is 'everything' an option? Because that's probably going to be the case. The way this car sounds and drives is the best part by far!

WHAT YOU MIGHT HATE ABOUT THIS CAR: The only potential downside we see is if you plan on piling more than 2-3 people in your car show vehicle.

DOES IT NEED ANYTHING? The tachometer and horn are not currently operational.

WHAT BUYER IS LOOKING FOR THIS CAR? This car is for someone who doesn't mind attention! If you want something unique that doesn't appear “crazy custom” to the naked eye, this is definitely it!

Dealership is not responsible for any errors, omissions, or inaccuracies contained in information provided by third parties. The majority of these vehicles are considered classics or antiques, meaning they are older vehicles with sometimes dated automotive technology. We are not an expert in the construction, engineering, finishes, materials or components of these vehicles. Our employees are a team of talented individuals with a history in the classic car industry. We perform an extensive visual inspections on all vehicles we represent, but we do not disassemble vehicles or components for inspection purposes and therefore it is always possible there is hidden damage that is not readily apparent.

Dealership assumes no responsibility for any repairs needed to the vehicle and it's the buyers sole responsibility for any repairs that might be needed.

If marked "Numbers Matching" or "Original Mileage", the consignor(current owner) states this vehicle as such. Given how easy it is to create a “clone” or “tribute”, we cannot guarantee the authenticity of any and all claims. Customer is encouraged to verify this information on their own, prior to purchase.

We can assist you in delivery through our network of private and commercial carriers most of which can deliver the vehicle to your driveway. We assume no responsibility for damages or delays incurred once a vehicle is in a shipper's custody.

All advertised prices exclude local, state, government fees and taxes and dealer documentation fee. Pricing is subject to change without notice. A dealer documentation fee of $250 will be added to the purchase price at the time of sale.

Our preferred and most secure form of payment is a bank wire transfer. We can accept checks, but note that any form of a check will have a minimum hold of 10 business days. This includes cashier's checks, certified checks, or bank checks of any kind. For cash received in the amount of $10,000 or more, we will complete an IRS Form 8300. We can not accept any credit card as payment or partial payment for a vehicle under any circumstance.
