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. An engine rebuild, this farm to church hauler presents in nice condition. A few dents and dings, scratches, all in all a very nice paint job, two tone tan and brown and some vinyl added to the top. Dig further my Camino loving colleagues and stay thirsty for more info. Exterior Sandalwood Tan in very good visual form covers this car/truck combos steel panels. Gaps are consistent, and no rust is seen. Bumpers, front and rear, are looking good and all badging is present and accounted for. The metal bed shows a near perfect coat of bed liner spray on anti is looking all rust free. The tailgate functions fine, and sporty color matching side mirrors are on either side attached to the doors. Just above covering the roof is a well preserved and unscathed brown vinyl top. On all 4 corners are GM rally style wheels wrapped by 215/75R14s. Interior Dark Saddle which shows a very rich texture of grained vinyl covers the door panels. These have some slight wave to the covering but are all clean and nicely preserved. A light tan random pattern broadcloth covers the bench in this two seater, and the backs are split for access to a small storage area behind the bench. Bolsters are smooth brown vinyl and there are some areas of tearing on the bolsters. New brown carpeting covers the floors, and the very clean and correct dash fronts the cloth bench. Save for the water temp gauge now neatly mounted beside the radio, the dash is in good condition. A newer tan headliner floats above. This car features working R134A A/C in full working blowing cold order. Drivetrain This numbers matching 350ci V8 which has recently undergone a top end rebuild with new cam, timing chain, lifters and pushrods. A new radiator and thermostat, water pump and antifreeze refresh have been put into this drivetrain. A 4-barrel carburetor Quadrajet, is on top, and behind this healthy mill is a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission. Power gets kicked rearwards to a 10-bolt rear with 3.36 gear ratio. Undercarriage Underneath we meet totally rust-free matte black painted structurally sound undercarriage. All freshly coated but not covering anything nefarious. Independent coil springs for the front, and a 4-link with coil springs for the rear along with front power discs and rear power drums are seen. These brakes rotors and drums are all recently replaced. A Flowmaster in dual exhaust form allows for an easy exhale from the mill. Drive-Ability A quick starter, and good driver. No apparent problems, and air was blowing cold although it was very cold outside, so it did not stay on for long! Consigner states that the A/C has a slow leak. A very nice job has been done overall as to the restoration of this car/truck. With added power, nice paint, vinyl top and some new interior pieces, this truck/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. All thanks to a churchgoing farming woman from down under!
