Classic Car Overview
The El Camino has an interesting social status that gives it plenty of personality. After all, its hard not to love a vehicle thats both a comfy cruiser and a versatile pickup. But when its been given an upgraded 350 V8, custom paint, a loaded A/C interior, and a custom SS-style look - well then, the desire for this 1979 Chevrolet El Camino reaches far beyond its affordable price. You already know there was a ton spent on the paint. The Sunburst Orange was borrowed from the Hummers, and it has the exact right kind of shine you want to draw attention to a custom like this. After all, they also invested heavily in the bodywork. It has a custom aerodynamic SS-style front end from the later years, shaved door handles, flush rear roll pan, and a smooth hard tonneau cover. The result is a very sleek-looking machine. And they really got the standout details right with the full custom pinstriping package, billet grille, and polished torque thrust-style wheels.
