1978 Chevrolet El Camino V8 $12,000

Brown · 8 Cylinder · 5,468 miles

My pride and joy, new 350 HO engine and transmission installed 2016 here in Baltimore. She came east from Arizona in 2015; body in excellent condition. Coolest car I have ever/will ever own; I've had three offers of marriage driving this car. Unfortunately she spends most of her time sitting in the garage whilst I drive the Prius. My sorrowful loss is your gain.

Mechanically everything on the car is new and has been replaced or rebuilt if necessary. Odometer was replaced during the rebuild and currently has 5,468 miles. AC works great.

About 3/4 of the car's original build sheet was found during the rebuild; built in Fremont, CA and sold by a dealership in Las Vegas, NV. From there she lived in Tucson, AZ until two years ago she was brought to the east coast. She is free of rust and body rot; give her a sweet paint job and you will have a classic collector's show piece or leave it as is and she will remain a bomber sleeper.
