1971 Chevrolet El Camino

There is very little mechanically that has not been rebuilt or replaced on this beauty! Starting with the body, it was totally stripped and painted with black lacquer paint and a urethane clear coat. The vinyl top and windshield were replaced, along with all of the trim and re-chromed bumpers. The bed has all new trim, along with the bed rail posted being re-chromed. Interior has new carpet, head liner, door panels and handles, visors have been recovered and dash detailed. The under carriage had a frame off sand blast and was repainted with the correct paint. The body was put back on new body bushings, springs and shocks painted the proper color. The front end is totally new with all Moog parts, along with all A-arm and 4-link urethane bushings. (The front end does not have the first shim in it.) The front brake rotors, bearings, pads, master cylinder and combination valve are new. The rear brake cylinders have been re-built with new pads added and silicone brake fluid used due to it being less corrosive. The vacuum booster has been re-plated to original color. All of the rubber stops, bumpers, door & window seals, door hinge bushings, mirror gaskets and outer door handles have been replaced. (The doors close like a new car!) The engine has very few miles on it since total rebuild. The re-build consists of bored .030 over TRW forged pistons, stock rods with Arp bolts on a steel crank, larger push rods and guide plates, Comp Cams roller rocker arms, Lunati 500 lift hydraulic cam, MSD billet electronic ignition system with blaster coil and 8mm wire (the only aftermarket parts and a good upgrades considering todays fuels). The heads were re-built with all new springs, retainers and guides. The transmission has not had to be touched except for being cleaned and all new seals. Mechanically speaking this beauty is as near perfect as you can get. I also have the original build sheet that was located under the seat.

I am the third owner of this El Camino. The second owner purchased it in 1981 and sold it to me in 2011. This El Camino spent its entire life (up to 2011) in Alabama. Since my ownership, I replaced the exhaust systems, tires and correct SS wheel assemblies, seat covers and foam, dash board and AM/FM 8 track radio.
