1978 Chevrolet EL Camino
Over 13k Invested. Engine machined and tuned by a local Race shop.
Been in storage for many years with only the occasional driving. Only reason I'm selling is I need the space.
383 Stroker Motor-- Small block Chev engine. All new eagle rotating assembly, Internally balanced. Gm aluminum heads. High compression ratio engine but pump gas friendly--Premium fuel. Comp cams 292. Holly double pump Carburetor. Hitachi Starter. Msd Ignition. Intake. Electric fans and much more!
4 Speed manual transmission with zoom clutch. Hurst shifter.
Body was stripped and primed then painted. very little body work but shows some waves in body as it was not properly blocked before it was painted. Water sanding with a block will make it look nicer. 3 stage paint plus Clear coat. Some scratches from storage. Fiberglass hood with 2 breaks on the inside of the hood that could be repaired with fiberglass repair and wouldn't show from the outside.
Many trim pieces are unattached but most of it will be included with sale plus some extra parts from another parts el camino. The Back of vehicle has many parts.
Vehicle has been in storage for many years. I crank it when I have a chance and drive it around for short distances. Still needs some work to the body, engine interior etc. Just don't have the time to do it.
As always its best to check it out in person.
Will crank right up but one of the floats is sticking on the carb so it will flood if it runs for to long and 2 tires go flat. ( I may get this fixed depending on the interest and bids).
May have some new window seals just need to find them.
Have most of the boxes from the parts purchased
Please don't assume anything and ask as many specific questions as you like.
Alabama doesn't title vehicles this old so bill of sale will be provided.
