1964 Chevrolet El Camino Custom
The first generation of El Caminos beat Ford's Ranchero in the market but in its second year sales went down so Chevrolet put a stop to its production. 4 years later though in 1964 the El Camino was reintroduced and based off the popular Chevelle. The 60's proved to be a good time for El Caminos and production of the cars continued all the way into the 80's. The 64 was the first of the second generation El Caminos and the one you see here takes that classic look and incorporates modern modifications that take it to a whole new level. If you are looking for an El Camino, stop here because you are going to have a tough time finding another one as nice as this. From front to rear the car has been totally redone utilizing only the best components throughout. The body is very straight and entirely rust free. The bright Burgundy paint has a beautiful finish with a brilliant shine that really pops out in the sun. All of the chrome and stainless trim is in excellent shape with no pitting or issues. Half of the aluminum front grill was blacked out which gives it a really cool custom appearance from the front. All of the lights work properly and new headlights and parking lights were just installed. It has a great stance and the 17 inch American Racing wheels look perfect on the car. They have the greyed out centers and tuck nicely under the fenders for the ultimate pro touring look.
Pop the hood and you will be greeted with a fresh 350 V8 motor that has less than 4,500 miles on it. The motor was very well built with an Edelbrock Performer RPM manifold, new Edelbrock 4 barrel carburetor, new NAPA battery, chrome alternator, billet valve covers and a chrome air cleaner. The engine compartment has a nice clean look as well with the firewall and inner fenders all painted Black. It sounds great too with the H pipe exhaust leading to dual Flowmaster mufflers that dump behind the rear wheels. Overheating is never an issue thanks to the Aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. The engine isn't the only performance upgrade either because the entire drivetrain and suspension have been redone as well. The 700R automatic with overdrive transmission operates perfectly and was just installed less than 1,000 miles ago. The suspension was entirely replaced in front and rear with a Hotchkiss suspension system with large sway bars. Stopping is an easy task thanks to the power brakes with slotted discs on all four wheels. Other nice features include the power steering system and Vintage AC/Heat. It even comes with a brand new cruise control system that has not yet been installed.
The interior is finished out in Black and is in great condition. The upholstery is like new. The dash has the stock appearance with all of the original style trim pieces, gauges, knobs, AM/FM radio etc. An aftermarket temp gauge has been added below the dash. The AC system utilizes an underdash style setup and blows cold with no issues. One of the coolest features is the custom Tonnue cover that was added over the bed which you don't see on a lot of these trucks. Not only does it keep your things protected and secure but it gives it a nice clean look from the exterior as well. The bed is painted to match the body but a rubber mat was fitted to the floor to protect the paint.
Get the best of both worlds with a car/truck combo that was built to drive you anywhere! It is a frequent show winner and was built with both looks and performance in mind.
