A classic 1979 Chevrolet El Camino at a value price is already quite tempting. But as you dig deeper to discover plenty of investments, including a stroker V8, you realize this is all-around irresistible. These final generation El Caminos have a particularly sleek and sporty design with a hint of classic style (the smooth roof is even a bit reminiscent of the three-window coupes from the '30s.) Add in a bit of flashy stainless steel trim, as well... as the taillights inset into the rear bumper, and you start to understand the car-like flair you don't get on other small pickups. The bed has a distinct tan liner paint that not only protects it, but also looks great against a later application of bright red paint. The final style element to bridge the sedan and pickup worlds is the set of Chevy's famous Rally wheels, which really help tie in the unique stylish tradition of the El Camino. If you liked the way the tan bed looked on the outside, then you'll love the tan interior. A vehicle with this much versatility means you can sit three across, but the fold-down armrest also means more individualized comfort whenever you want. There was a solid investment inside, and so you it has a fresher feeling to the door panels, carpeting, seat, and headliner. Plus, you have nice features like an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo with USB and Bluetooth, and there are provisions for factory air conditioning. They even added auxiliary gauges hidden away in the glovebox. You'll slip behind the factory wheel, and that gives you a clear view to the full gauge package, including the handy tach. Under the hood is the best upgrade of them all. The 383 cubic-inch stroker motor you see here is larger than anything that was available in '79. Plus, this performance V8 was installed only about 4,000 miles ago. It comes with great upgrades like an Edelbrock four-barrel carburetor, Edelbrock intake, and a rumbling stainless dual exhaust. As you look closer at the engine bay and undercarriage, you can see evidence of investments in the right supporting components - including an aluminum radiator w/electric fan. Plus, with power steering, front disc brakes, and a three-speed automatic transmission, this powerful El Camino is also a great anytime cruiser. This is a great El Camino that goes beyond just driver-quality in every aspect, except its low price. Call today!!!
