1979 Chevrolet Other Pickups

A 1979 Chevrolet El Camino - V8-350 5.7L. Completely restored engine, exhaust and brake system. This white El Camino runs and drives like a dream.

Needs cosmetic body work only, which will make her Car-Show Ready. Very little rust on the body, and the classic El Camino bed has been completely sealed in black rubber. It even has a custom-made, beautiful Wooden Steering Wheel.

IT DOES NOT HAVE A TITLE AND HAS NOT HAD A TITLE IN AT LEAST THREE OWNERS. In most states, a title is not needed for a 40 year-old classic like this. It does have the original VIN.

It is currently registered, insured, and inspected in Rhode Island. It was previously registered, insured, and inspected in CT.
