Classic vintage Chevrolet pickup trucks are receiving growing interest among car enthusiasts. The most collectible muscle cars are numbers-matching survivors; the most sought-after vintage trucks are full custom builds.


Classic Car Overview

Weve made the case for the practical and stylish El Camino here before, and with this charcoal gray 1972 Chevrolet El Camino, it remains as true as ever. Theres a strong-running small block under the hood, a handsome paint job that accentuates the cars classic styling, and honestly, if you can find a muscle car more versatile than this one, you should buy it. Dressed in sophisticated charcoal gray paint with black stripes, its the archetypal Elky, and personally, the 72s are my favorite with their single headlamps and side-mounted parking lights. The bodywork is well done and doesnt look very old, although there are signs of use that are probably inevitable. The doors fit well, and the tailgate is in great shape with none of the rust or dings that typically show up on these cars no matter how well-maintained they are. Bumpers, both front and rear, appear to be reproduction items or even very nice originals, and all the stainless trim is in good condition. Factory parking light lenses, a standard Chevy hood, and bright stainless trim all give it an OEM look, and despite the stripes, this isnt an SS clone. The bed makes this a practical piece of muscle, and thanks to a very neatly done spray-in bedliner, that means you shouldnt be afraid to put it to work now and then. I promise it wont mind! This El Camino carries a handsome black interior, which uses a bench seat to permit three-abreast seating. Most of the interior appears recent, including the door panels, headliner, and even the seat cover, all of which are correct reproductions. A bench seat is probably a smart choice in an Elky, just to maximize passenger capacity, and the column shifter means nobodys uncomfortable. The standard gauge cluster is little more than a speedometer and fuel gauge plus some idiot lights, but the powertrain is so reliable, more gauges arent really necessary. Theres an AM/FM/CD stereo in the dash that sounds great, and youll not that this is a factory A/C car, although some of the components have been removed. But for the most part, theres nothing inside to detract from the original look and thats a good thing. The engine is a 350 cubic inch V8 that runs very well with good power and a great rumble from the Flowmaster dual exhaust system. Wearing a coat of Chevy Orange, the engine is dressed with a chrome air cleaner and finned valve covers, so it looks pretty stock. For performance, theres an Edelbrock 4-barrel carburetor atop a GM intake (which has been painted orange to help it blend in), an HEI distributor, and a set of long-tube headers that hug the block for good service access. A stout TH350 3-speed automatic transmission handles the gears, doling out torque to the 10-bolt rear end, which is full of relatively tall gears so the Elky is easy-going on the highway. Power steering and brakes make this truck/car handle easily, and theres a recent Flowmaster exhaust system. Traditional Rally wheels look awesome and wear 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials. Properly sorted cars are hard to find, and when theyve led hard lives like most El Caminos, its even more difficult. This is an exception. Drive it, have fun, and dont forget that it still might enjoy working once in a while, too. Call today!
