AWESOME RED/BLACK COLORS, SS BADGES & TRIM, 406CI SMALL BLOCK, TH400, 10-BOLT
With the handsome good looks of a Chevelle and the utility of a pickup, the El Camino offers the best of both worlds: performance and practicality. This 1970 Chevrolet El Camino has been custom built to further blur that muscle car/pickup line with a performance 406 V8, bold looks, and added comfort.
A modern aggressive red is an awesome color on an El Camino, giving it a slick style that disguises the pickup truck practicality hiding within. So, it will attract plenty of attention going down the road and when you show up for local cruise nights. Of course the black SS stripes, badges on every side, hood pins, and a cowl induction hood all gain instant respect. We always love the El Caminos because they take the Chevelle's iconic design and give it rarer and more interesting sheetmetal. So you see the familiar features like the shapely grille, quad headlight design, bright trim, and classic SS Mag wheels. And while this one already has a stellar price, you can justify your purchase even more because beneath the black tonneau cover is the usefulness of a truck bed.
More of the Chevelle DNA is shared on the inside with the dash and door panels showing their comfortable car-like roots. The same goes for the front seat that's been upgraded to a power-adjustable bench with comfortable fold-down armrest. There are some other great added features like the LED lighting, cup holders, and AM/FM stereo with digital tuner (the original radio also comes with the sale.) You get the grippy factory two-spoke steering wheel, with gives you a commanding view of the extra-long speedometer. Plus, you can clearly see the auxiliary gauge trio and SunPro tach. These are a clear indication of something special under the hood even before you twist the key and hear it roar.
The engine bay is a V8 that's dressed to impress. There's plenty of shine on the snorkel air grabber, valve covers, brake booster, radiator shroud, and so much more – so you know this is the kind of machine made to lift its hood wherever it parks. But beyond just appearances, this V8 was built to run. It's a big 406 cubic-inch powerplant that is enhanced with go-fast goodies like a mild cam, Spectre dual plenum air grabber, QFT four-barrel carburetor, and long tube headers. That last component not only adds power, but also it helps contribute to the thunderous rumble of the dual exhaust. Getting all of this to the ground is a stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission with shift kit to remain in the optimal powerband. Taking this mean machine out for a cruise is no problem with great driving features such as power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of Goodyear Eagle ST tires at all four corners.
Complete with owner's manual, you're probably doing a double take on the price right now. After all, a '70 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... but only if you call now!
