1979 Chevrolet El Camino Additional Info:

I'll be the first to say it: I didn't know El Caminos could be this cool. Sure, e all love their unbeatable combination of performance and practicality, ut to take one to this level, ive it a wicked stance and a bright red paint job, ell, hat's something you don't see all that often and certainly not at this price.This car attracts a ton of attention, nd suspecting that would be the case, he guys who built it spent a ton of extra time on the details. This isn't your average, un-of-the-mill beater Elky, his one was a super-clean original car that was taken to the next level by guys who seemed to really care about their work. Gaps are excellent, nd the two-stage urethane paint is about a mile deep, ven up close. Look closely and you'll appreciate the traditional appearance upgrades like the cowl induction hood and hard-shell tonneau cover and the stainless trim that outlines the fender arches looks fantastic. Nice chrome bumpers, stock grille, nd tinted windows blend stock and modified seamlessly and the bed is protected by a heavy-duty rubber mat, o don't be afraid to use it as intended.It's still pretty stock inside, here a clean factory style Saddle Tan interior is the ideal complement to the fabulous red bodywork. That's the original bench, ow wearing two-tone seat covers that are a twist on the original setup. The factory dash was retained, ncluding the stock instruments, ut there's a full array of auxiliary gauges stashed underneath. Those are probably the original door panels, ut the carpets are newer and protected by a set of heavy-duty rubber mats. Entertainment comes courtesy of a Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo head unit, nd you'll note that this is a factory A/C car, hose system blows cold thanks to an R134a refrigerant upgrade. A 350 cubic inch Chevy crate motor is the right choice, ince it bolts right in and makes big power without a lot of fuss. Nicely dressed with chrome valve covers and a matching air cleaner, t's a great way to bring everything up to date. It isn't over done and it's obvious that the focus was on functionality, ut nobody will complain after they take a drive. One look underneath will convince you that this has always been a clean truck, nd the 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission is brand new. A new dual exhaust system gives it a great voice, ecent air shocks out back allow it to still haul anything you can throw at it, nd the lowered stance looks right. 15-inch steel wheels with spinners are fitted with 215/70/15 Yokohama radials that fill the wheel arches nicely.You won't find a cooler El Camino anywhere, nd you need a dose of practicality with your V8-powered weekend toy, hey don't come much more useful or stylish than this.
