Classic Car Overview
The gentlemans pickup is a unique piece of the classic American automotive landscape, and so its great to have an example presented so nicely. With great glossy paint, a sporty bucket seat interior, and plenty of big block V8 power, this 1970 Chevrolet El Camino SS clone is a distinct vintage machine. This is one of the most iconic years for the style of the Chevelle/El Camino. But more than just the best designed sheetmetal, the paint provides an instant attraction to this El Camino. Red is always a striking color, but you can tell from the high gloss presentation that someone cared about attracting all the right attention. And we all love the look of those painted black stripes against the bold red. This is a true uniform color package as the black vinyl roof and the black bed paint match the accent color and add a premium touch. Plus, it has all the right aggressive pieces like the blacked-out SS grille, matching tailgate panel, and a cowl induction hood. And while this has a truly muscular presence, we know that no classic American can be complete without good brightwork. Thats why you have a mirror-like shine on everything from the big chrome bumpers to the polished American Racing Torq Thrust wheels. More of the Chevelle SS-style DNA is shared on the inside with bucket seats and a center console. We love it when the exterior stripes are a preview of the interior color, and you can tell there was a solid investment inside. Thats why the seats feel crisp, the carpeting is fresh, the headliner is strong, and the door panels are like-new. Plus, this one is loaded with the best features, like the upgraded AM/FM stereo with digital tuner and provisions for R134a air conditioning. But more than just nice luxuries, this is a true drivers machine. Your right hand will be instantly attracted to the iconic horseshoe shifter. Your left one will love the grip of the dual-spoke steering wheel. And beyond that is the correct U14 full round gauge panel that includes a large speedo and tach exactly what you want for an ideal SS package. We always love seeing big block power filling in the engine bay on these El Caminos. In fact, while the decal says 396, thats bit of a fib... because its a larger 454 cubic-inch V8. It has a terrific style with the bold block paint, polished valve covers, and matching air topper. Plus, this big block inhales deeply with an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor and Edelbrock Performer intake. And it exhales with true big block authority out of the performance X-pipe dual exhaust. More than just a big motor machine, this is also a great cruiser. The TH400 three-speed transmission is Chevys stout unity thats good at both handling all the power as well as providing automatic driving comfort. They even upgraded to an aluminum radiator to help keep the whole package running cool. Add in power steering and front disc brakes, and this El Camino is built for driving. When you can get iconic sheetmetal, great coordinating colors, and plenty of power all for such an obtainable price, well then, you know this El Camino SS clone is a deal that will be gone soon.
