REAL EYE GRABBER! 454 V8 BUILT TO 462CI, AUTO, A/C, PS/B, FRONT DISC, CLEAN!

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 incredible big block-powered 1972 Chevrolet El Camino has been pro-built to further blur the lines that separate vehicles: big performance, killer good-looks, and a whole lot of comfort.

The point wasn't to build a restored stocker or a pedigrees showcar, but rather a vicious performer with show-stopping looks and off-the-charts curb appeal. There's an argument to be made that the single-headlight A-Body Chevelles and Elkys are the most attractive of the bunch (aka the '71 and '72 year models), and you can't argue with the bright yellow paint on this car/truck in terms of eyeball appeal. The bodywork is beautifully finished and the workmanship is shown to great effect thanks to the fresh two-stage urethane paint job. Black Lemans-style stripes on the hood are the perfect dancing partner to the vibrant finish, and they were painted on specifically to augment the cowl hood. These vehicles typically led harder lives than your average Chevelle, and finding a clean one, let along investing enough to bring it to this condition, is pretty tough. ...

REAL EYE GRABBER! 454 V8 BUILT TO 462CI, AUTO, A/C, PS/B, FRONT DISC, CLEAN!

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 incredible big block-powered 1972 Chevrolet El Camino has been pro-built to further blur the lines that separate vehicles: big performance, killer good-looks, and a whole lot of comfort.

The point wasn't to build a restored stocker or a pedigrees showcar, but rather a vicious performer with show-stopping looks and off-the-charts curb appeal. There's an argument to be made that the single-headlight A-Body Chevelles and Elkys are the most attractive of the bunch (aka the '71 and '72 year models), and you can't argue with the bright yellow paint on this car/truck in terms of eyeball appeal. The bodywork is beautifully finished and the workmanship is shown to great effect thanks to the fresh two-stage urethane paint job. Black Lemans-style stripes on the hood are the perfect dancing partner to the vibrant finish, and they were painted on specifically to augment the cowl hood. These vehicles typically led harder lives than your average Chevelle, and finding a clean one, let along investing enough to bring it to this condition, is pretty tough. Gaps are good and a lot of time was invested in getting the body panels this straight. A few details were shaved, including all the emblems, and a cowl-induction hood and blacked-out front grille were both fitted to give this Elky just the right aggressive look. Out back, the original steel bed was finished with black spray-in liner and a heavy-duty liner, just in case you want to actually do some work with this one.

Custom ProCar bucket seats offer a new look that matches the exterior. They're aggressive, sure, but this car has the kind of performance that needs that kind of body-hugging hardware. Carpets, headliner, and door panels are reproduction pieces that look good and fit right, and in basic black, it's hard to go wrong. The dash is original, but a few Moon Eyes gauges have been fitted in a custom engine-turned panel, along with an auxiliary tachometer mounted under the dash. There is no stereo, but Vintage Air supplied a direct-fit system that makes it look like a factory-installed set-up with an original style control panel, and with modern hardware and R134a refrigerant working behind the scenes, it's quite effective. Power steering, power front disc brakes, and a built TH400 3-speed automatic transmission all make this a no-compromises hobby car that's simply a blast to drive.

If your idea of entertainment runs more towards G-forces rather than decibels, you'll be relieved to know that the engine is packing a bunch of heat. The big block V8 was built by NHRA legend Joey Gross about 10,000 miles ago, and you'd better believe it's as nasty as it looks (in a good way). It's Generation 5, 4-bolt main block (from 1991) punched out to 462 cubic inches, fitted with 10:1 pistons, a Comp Cams 280 Extreme camshaft, roller rockers on a set of Edelbrock Performer aluminum heads and a high-flow oil pump. Induction is handled by a Quick Fuel Technologies 750 double pumper carburetor and an Edelbrock Air-Gap intake manifold, and there's a beautiful set of Hedman headers handling the 3-inch dual exhaust. There's a big aluminum radiator up front keeping the whole show nice and cool, along with a trick billet aluminum accessory drive setup made by March Performance that makes the big block look super sanitary. The transmission is a built TH400 3-speed automatic with a shift-kit feeding a 12-bolt rear with 3.42 gears on a Posi, so you shouldn't have concerns about dropping the loud pedal now and then. The suspension is upgraded with parts from CPP, so it sits right, and power steering and power front disc brake greatly improve the ride quality of this Elky. Sporty yet traditional-looking Billet Specialties 'Old Style' wheels stuff the wheel wells, wearing 245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear performance radials.

This is a really nice car, er, truck. The motor sounds downright vicious blowing through those pipes, and you won't be keeping a low profile with that bright yellow paint. But if there are times when you just feel like relaxing, the air-conditioned interior is a great place to be. Call it a truck, call it a car, either way you're going to love this El Camino.
