For sale in our Chicago showroom is this glimmering 1972 Chevrolet El Camino SS. The El Camino concept was created in 1959 in response to the popular Ford Ranchero and had a successful but brief 2 year run returning as the second generation model in 1964. This third generation SS started life with a 350 cubic inch V8 that did its job but is no match for the 454 Chevy crate motor that is currently under its custom hood. Backing up this big block is a 400 Turbo transmission delivering power back to the 10 bolt rear end.
It is becoming more unusual to see El Caminos on the road than ever before and they are prized by collectors for not only the great look but functionality of having a full pickup bed and the driving habits of a car. This example is one of the nicest you are sure to come across and features a very high quality paint job finished in Super Silver metallic with custom Jack Daniels airbrushing on the hood. Although drinking and driving never mix you can be sure to get noticed in this machine on bright sunny days and save those refreshments for when she is resting in the garage.
On the inside you will notice a very original interior save for the Jack Daniels airbrushing behind the seats. The black vinyl buckets look great in contrast to the bright silver paint. Options on this El Camino include power steering, power brakes, AM/FM stereo, SS Steering wheel, horseshoe shifter, custom bed cover and chrome Cragar wheels.
