Description:

1970 Chevrolet El Camino Super Sport

Super Sport Clone. Original 350 car. Drive train has a 502 big block with 350 hydro and 9" Ford. Have owned the car since 2001. Bought from a seller in Salem, OR and the history suggests it was an OR car for a long time. We shipped it to WI where of course it hasn't seen winter and we've never driven it in rain. I'm not a body man, but I can't see where any new quarters, floors or box have been added. Looks like original sheet metal.

Paint was resprayed in October of 2015 just in time for winter storage. PPG clear coat base coat in a dark purple. Black SS stripes are on the hood. Paint has a red metallic that really pops in the sun. Interior is black bench seat. Sweep speedo, as this is the only item that didn't get upgraded to SS status.

Drive train details: 502 crate motor was a 340 HP truck version short block. This was added by the last owner. We took it out and redid it in the 2007 time frame due to crazy solid lifter cam, Pete Jackson gear drive making a huge racket and the wrong crate motor oil pan rubbing on the cross member. It now has JE 9.5:1 pistons, CI rectangular port GM heads, complete hydraulic roller valve train (Crane cam .600 ish lift w/Harlan Sharp roller rockers) Edelbrock air gap intake, 750 CFM Holley, Hooker headers and a Milodon oil pan. We put it on the dyno before reinstalling to tune and break in. It made 516 HP and 570 Ft Lbs. on 87 octane with the 750 carb. Likely left a lot of HP on the dyno by not running an 850 carb, but we were after throttle response and live forever RPM range. Torque numbers are big from 2500 to 5300 RPM. The trans is built and has a pretty tight converter which works well with that much torque. The 9" Ford is by Currie and has a 3.55:1 gear set. It is mounted in Edelbrock boxed trailing arms and adjustable top link. The car is fun to drive as it has immediate throttle response as the cam is not a big duration piece. The passing gear is a real kick in the pants. Looking at old paperwork when prepping to sell the car it looks like we've only driven it 5-6000 miles in 16 years.
