1971 Chevrolet El Camino
The reason why you stopped to look at this one was because you see a very clean 1971 Chevrolet El Camino at a very nice price. But then a second glance picks up on the ghost flames in the paint, the custom interior, or the growl of the enhanced V8. You soon realize that what was once an attractive classic is really an irresistible custom build.
We love the paint on this one. With no direct light on this at all, it's a very clean build that goes for a pristine white attitude. Even the shaved door handles, painted sport mirrors, and white tonneau cover all contribute to this very clean and sleek attitude. But then the sunlight hits the hood, and a hint of pearlescent begins to shine. Soon you realize that the front end is engulfed in ghost flames. It's a striking presentation no matter if people catch this glimpse from across traffic or in the cruise-in parking lot. But more than just the paint, you want this El Camino because of its looks. This is one of the most iconic Chevelle designs with a rarer and more interesting profile. So you still see the familiar features like the shapely grille (blacked out like an SS), single headlight design, and big bright bumpers. And you can justify your purchase even more because this one also has the practicality of a truck bed.
Pop the remote door openers, and you see a very cool custom interior. It starts with the newer black leatherette split bench seat. We love how the custom blue piping gives sets a fully-coordinated feeling throughout the interior. More of the Chevelle DNA is shared on the inside with the dash and door panels showing their comfortable car-like roots. You'll also note that this one carries some modern upgrades for convenience, including power locks, an anti-theft system, and an Alpine AM/FM/CD stereo with powered subwoofer. You'll enjoy slipping behind the grippy wood and chrome sports steering wheel, and beyond that is the factory-issued extra-long speedometer along with dual auxiliary gauges. It all tells your senses that this one has some extra power even before you turn the key and hear it rumble.
Under the hood is a 350 cubic-inch V8 that's dressed to impress. There's plenty of shine on the Edelbrock air topper, matching valve covers, steel braided hoses, and much more so you know this is the kind of machine made to lift its hood wherever it's parked. But beyond just appearances, this V8 was built to run. It inhales deeply with an Edelbrock aluminum intake and a four-barrel carburetor. The V8 exhales with authority thanks to Hooker long tube headers that feed the performance H-pipe dual exhaust. All this power gets to the ground through GM's sturdy three-speed automatic transmission. Taking this mean machine out for a cruise is no problem with great driving features such as power steering, front power disc brakes, and the modern grip of Mickey Thompson Sportsman tires at all four corners.
Complete with the factory buildsheet, you're probably doing a double take on the price right now. After all, a '71 Chevelle in the same great condition would cost a lot more. It's amazing this cool El Camino gives you extra distinction and rarity for thousands less. So don't miss this opportunity, call now!
