Classic Car Overview

Cars like this 1970 Chevy El Camino SS 454 always get us excited. Heck, with a strong-running 454 big block, an original factory A/C set-up (albeit not currently in service), choice power options under the hood, and a slick red-on-black color combination, it has to be one of the better car-truck iterations weve ever seen. If this was a Chevelle, it would cost considerably more than it does, and wouldnt be even half as practical, making this Elky a smart buy by all accounts. The bodywork on this daily driver is nicely finished and the workmanship is shown to great effect thanks to the always popular Cranberry Red paint. With black SS stripes over the hood and a blacked-out panel on the tailgate, its obvious that this isnt your Grandads grocery-getter, just in case you missed the SS badging. These vehicles typically led harder lives than your average Chevelle, and finding a clean one, let alone investing enough to bring it to this slick condition, is tough. Gaps are good and a lot of time was invested in getting the body panels this straight, and that Cranberry Red paint is simply brilliant even with a handful of imperfections, most of which could be easily remedied with a proper buff-and-polish. A functioning cowl-induction hood with accessory hood pins is a must for any SS-spec sled, and when coupled with the blacked-out SS grille up front, this car-truck certainly means business. All the brightwork and trim is shiny and very well-maintained, with sparkling chrome on the bumpers, bright stainless around the bed thats free from dings and damage from heavy use, and glistening wheel arches providing nice contrast against the red finish. The interior of the bed was neatly finished with a spray-in bedliner that not only looks good, but also means you can still use this Elky like a truck. A new black bench seat anchors the cab interior, which features a nice mixture of restoration pieces and fresh upgrades. Black vinyl and cloth on the bench seat looks far more elegant than one might expect inside a utilitarian hauler, and the matching black carpets, taut headliner, and door panels are reproduction pieces that look good and fit right. The thick SS steering wheel is a perfect addition to the usually bare-bones El Camino, joined on the original column with the shifter for the automatic transmission below. The dash is likely original and filled with a set of SS-style factory gauges, and although theyre a bit cloudy from years of service, their faces could easily be refreshed. You will note that this is a factory A/C car, although most of the components have been removed, but nevertheless that makes this Elky a much more valuable piece, especially should anyone decide to return a replacement A/C system. The radio has also been deleted, but a retro-style stereo would easily slide into the original slot, and until then the soundtrack of the big block under the hood should more than suffice. Tidy and straight to the point, the cabin of this Elky is certainly a comfortable place in which to spend some time. Theres no question that whomever specd out this unusual El Camino had his priorities straight when he picked a 454 V8 to lead the carriage. Its not the numbers matching block, but it is period correct, with a casting and suffix code decoding to a 1970 454 LS4 V8 with a stout 345 horsepower rating. In terms of power, torque, and drivability, this is the one you really want to own if you like to drive and strike fear into any challengers. It also makes power steering, power brakes, and A/C a reality (should it be returned back to its factory settings), and with a towering torque curve, theres insane amounts of power anywhere on the speedometer and shredding the tires takes just a tickle of the throttle. The big engine is topped with a 4-barrel carb and stock intake, then dressed like the factory would have done it with Chevy Orange on the block and a black snorkeled air cleaner decked out with correct 454 decals. Underneath, theres an optional F41 suspension, a smooth-shifting TH350 3-speed automatic transmission, and a heavy-duty 12-bolt rear end. A rumbling dual exhaust with Flowmaster mufflers sounds spectacular and handsome SS Mag wheels carry 225/60/14 white-letter radials. Nicely restored and ready to rock right now, this is one heck of a car-truck. Like I said, if this was a Chevelle, it would be a major player, yet you can own this incredible big block El Camino for far less. Call today!
