1972 Chevrolet El Camino race car

Up for auction with NO RESERVE is a 1972 Chevy EL Camino Hot Rod with pro street or drag race potential. Please check out the awesome history of "EL Survivor" jalopnik(dot)com/5807024/the-el-camino-that-survived-the-joplin-tornado (must take out (dot) and replace with a real dot like this . because no clickable links allowed)
Motor: 2k miles The original 307 was replaced with a 350 bored .30 over with polished and balanced rods. KB Pistons were used along with double hump heads off a Vette which were gasket matched and polished. The cam is custom cut with over .600 lift, solid lifters, roller rockers and Edlebrock Victor Jr intake. Engine is fueled by a new 750 CFM Manuel Choke carb. We just replaced battery & starter
TRANSMISSION is a standard 3 spd with a 2800-3200 Stall/Torque Converter Rebuilt rear end with brand new Posi 396 gears She turned an easy 14.01 - 1/4 mi with no 1st gear traction...We have a pair of slicks that come with El Camino that should easily put this beast in the 12's This El Camino has been garage kept for over a decade and has good bones with only a couple small rust spots. Rear quarter panels have been replaced along with salvage doors. The back gate has been welded in. 90's bucket seats were added.
As you can tell much has been done to this El Camino since the Joplin Tornado struck and devastated so many... Yet it brought thousands from all over the world to help out. There is still work to do as you can see by the pics, but whatever your dream might be, you can easily turn this El Camino into a well drivable project while you carry the "El Survivor" torch (we would appreciate progress updates:)
She drives straight down the road right now but needs a windshield and mirrors to be safe We also have slicks, extra radiator and head lights, plus rear bumper not shown in pics Message me for Walk around video w/Engine Running
