With distinct glossy paint, an A/C interior, proper big block V8 power, and an overall look and feel of quality, this 1972 Chevrolet El Camino represents the kind of turn-key big-block classic we all want in our garage.
The distinction of this one starts with the paint. There have been solid investments in this El Camino over the last dozen years, which includes a professional respray. The silver metallic is a modern clearcoat application with a terrific luster that pops in the .....
sunshine. In fact, the level of cleanliness and straightness of the whole body lets you know the full project was done right. That's why there's also quality in the details, like the way both doors shut solid, the weather-stripping feels fresh, the bed is smooth, and the mirror-like shine of the chrome bumpers shine. More than just look great, this one has a nice dose of attitude. The dog dish style hubcaps on black wheels have the old-school COPO kind of vibe. And the extra meaty rear tires help give this Chevy an intimidating stance.
The interior mixes the vintage style with upgrades for comfort and performance. You can see this in the seat that has the classic split-bench style, but now there's also more contouring to give this a more bucket-style level of comfort. And with a deep black on the carpeting, door panels, headliner, and smooth dash it is a well-coordinated and quality package. You'll also like the details, like the AM radio that's there for display and working dome light. The factory air conditioning controls are even blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant. The wood-rimmed sports steering wheel is on a tilt column for added comfort, and the classic horizontal speedo is supplemented by full auxiliary gauges and a large tach.
It's always great to see a muscle car's engine bay with proper big block power. And this one is ready to show off with crisp details including the bold Chevy orange block with matching ribbed valve covers and air topper. The 454 cubic-inch V8 is an upgrade later in life, and it was even rebuilt in 2016 with a bore .030 over. It's enhanced further with a Holley four-barrel carburetor, polished Edelbrock intake, and long tube headers that add power while contributing to the rumble of the x-pipe dual exhaust. You've even got nice supporting components for this big V8, like a Champion aluminum radiator and dual electric fans. Plus, you have power steering, power brakes, front discs, a three-speed automatic transmission, and wide BF Goodrich T/As for all-around good driving.
The sale comes complete with the factory buildsheet, maintenance records, and build receipts. This El Camino has added power and slick distinction, and so it's the ideal way to stand out in all the best ways. Call today!!!
