Classic Car Overview

1971 Chevrolet El Camino Rumor has it that Mattels Elliot Handler (the el in Mattel), spotted designer Harry Bradleys El Camino in the Mattel HQ parking lot and commented, Those are some hot wheels, coining the new name for Mattels line of toy cars, Hot Wheels. In fact, Elliot was so impressed by Bradleys custom El Camino, he insisted that Mattel use it as a model for the first line of Hot Wheels toy cars. And the rest as they say is history. For consignment, a pre gas crisis, pre emissions, pre muscle car killing legislation car that has had a restoration. A definite power upgrade, this farm to church hauler presents in nice condition. A few dents and dings, scratches, and a slight bubbling paint area, all in all a very nice paint job, and indeed painted on stripes. Dig further my friend and stay thirsty for more info. Exterior Lezzene Blue Metallic in very good visual form covers this car/truck combos steel panels. Gaps are a bit inconsistent, but all steel will tend to do this over time. Slight bubbling can be seen on the drivers lower door, but otherwise its clean. As noted, painted on striping in contrasting black run the length of the Cowl Induction hood and meet up with clean windshield glass that is surrounded by fine looking polished stainless trim. Bumpers, front and rear, are looking good and all badging is present and accounted for. The metal bed shows a few bumps from obvious use, but paint is good all over this area. The tailgate functions fine, and sporty color matching side mirrors are on either side attached to the doors. Interior Cloth velour in dark Gun Metal Gray covers the buckets in this two-seater, and the drivers bucket shows slight wear and some pilling . Black carpeting covers the floors, and the very clean and correct dash fronts the buckets. Tuck and roll stitched black vinyl mixed with smooth black vinyl and framed by lines of polished aluminum make up the door panels that flank the buckets. Other than an aftermarket radio, and some hanging extra gauges, the padded dash is all Chevy...think S-10. The headliner shows a slight sagging but is otherwise unremarkable. Drivetrain A circa 1975 454ci V8 replaces the original power plant, carries an Edelbrock performance intake manifold, and is topped by a Holley 4-barrel carburetor. A 3-speed automatic transmission in the form of a TH400 is strapped to the rear of this healthy mill and shifts smoothly. This combo puts power back to a limited slip 12-bolt rear, spinning 255/55/R17s all around. Gasses are evacuated quickly through headers and a Flowmaster exhaust system. Note that AC has been disconnected, even though the controls exist for it on the dash. Undercarriage At first, we are met with a chromed pumpkin, but upon further inspection all is seen is jet black restored suspension, solid frame with no rust surface or otherwise, and clean floorpans and toe kicks. Wonderful presentation underneath. A very nice job has been done overall as to the restoration of this car/truck. With added power, nice paint, and American Racing Polished Torque Thrust wheels, this car can haul hay or haul ass, or both, although the hay may all go away prior to arriving at your intended destination. Oh well, it was fun while it lasted.
