1979 Chevrolet El Camino Additional Info:

A 1979 Chevrolet El Camino - V8-350 5.7L. Completely restored engine, exhaust and brake system. This white El Camino runs and drives like a dream.

Needs cosmetic body work only, which will make her Car-Show Ready. Very little rust on the body, and the classic El Camino bed has been completely sealed in black rubber. It even has a custom-made, beautiful Wooden Steering Wheel.

While currently Registered, Insured, and Inspected in RHODE ISLAND, it is located in BROOKLYN, NY. Previously she was registered, insured, and inspected in CONNECTICUT.

IT DOES NOT HAVE A TITLE AND HAS NOT HAD A TITLE IN AT LEAST THREE OWNERS. In most states, a title is not needed for a 40 year-old classic like this. It does have the original VIN.
