This 1972 Chevrolet El Camino SS 454 is a real-deal Super Sport that has its numbers-matching LS5 big block. Plus, with upgrades like the overdrive transmission and desirable triple-black presentation, this is truly your full wish list in one muscle machine.
This El Camino has an instant presence. The black paint has a nice gloss to it that highlights the good body panels, and at the same time, gives this true Super Sport a true performance look. And this has all your other favorite .....
SS pieces, including the dual hood stripes, hood pins, a true cowl induction hood, complete SS badging, blackout grille & rear, and correct Super Sport wheels. More than just the sporty pieces, you'll love all the details, like the form-hugging chrome bumpers, bright trim, and a newer black vinyl roof. And we especially like hint of bold color from the redline tires.
The full black interior completes the ultra-desirable triple-black upgrades (paint, roof, and upholstery.) There have been some more recent investments in key places like the seat covers and carpeting to make sure this is a nice place to spend some time. There's also an upgraded AM/FM/cassette stereo. This appears to be a factory air conditioning car. It was switched to modern R134a, but it will need servicing before blowing ideally cold again. The dual-spoke SS steering wheel feels grippy in your hands, and it gives you a clear view to the round gauge package that includes the large speedo and tach.
Under the hood is the numbers-matching LS5. This ultra-desirable motor with the correct VIN numbers means you have a real-deal Super Sport. And because this is so significant, they know you're going to want to lift the hood wherever you park. That's why the full presentation is tidy and quite correct - right down to details, like the decals on the valve covers and the Quadrajet four-barrel carb. The air grabber even fits into the cowl induction hood. But while the top end looks factory, the undercarriage photos reveal this one is hiding some terrific upgrades. The Hooker headers feeding the H-pipe exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers means the big V8 has extra power and a terrific sound. The transmission has been upgraded to a 700R4 unit, which means a stout construction now meets overdrive comfort. Plus, you have power steering and power brakes w/discs up front. There's also newer pieces like the bushings, fuel tank, rear air shocks, and sway bars front & rear all to make this a fine driver.
This is the triple-black Super Sport that was made for you to truly enjoy. So don't let this total package classic slip away. Call today!!!
