1978 Chevrolet El Camino Factory 350 V8 offered by Gas Monkey Garage & seen on Fast N' Loud!

Here's a nice, really solid example of the iconic El Camino. Debuted in 1959 as Chevrolets answer to the Ranchero , this 5th generation El Camino was built at the Arlington Texas plant with the optional 350 CID V8, Automatic Transmission w/ Center Console Shifter,Power Steering & Brakes and A/C.

Exterior photos show a very solid body that appears to have been re-sprayed at some point in the past and shows well with a few dents, nicks and chips as shown (please see all pics). The bed is very solid as well with paint scratches from years of actually hauling gear. There is a set of period correct American Racing alloys with 275/60 15 rear & 225/70 15 front tires and an added front spoiler for an aggressive stance!

Inside pics show a fairly complete interior that would benefit from some TLC. The head liner is sagging and the drivers seat shows wear as well. There is an aftermarket set of Sunpro Gauges and a strategically placed Tach. There was an attempt to install an aftermarket stereo that needs wiring attention as shown in the pics.

Photos under the hood show the Factory 350 V8 that has had some aftermarket performance and appearance items installed such as a set of headers, chrome air cleaner, alternator and valve covers along with a new set of plug wires.

Underside pics reveal a solid chassis as well with superficial rust present on most components (again, see all 100 pics).

While this 1978 5th Generation El Camino runs and drives well, it should be completely serviced before any extended driving to ensure safety and reliability (due to our filming schedule, we cannot perform any additional work on this truck or build it for you SOLD AS IS/WHERE IS).

This El Camino will be seen on an upcoming episode of Fast N' Loud and the winning bidder may have the option of coming to the shop to take delivery on the show!

If you're looking for a really cool El Camino from the 70's, you won't find a better example that's priced to sell! This would be perfect for Cruise Night, Advertising and Promotional use or as a kick ass addition to your collection, you decide!
