1972 Chevrolet El Camino - Matching #'s L48 350 V8 4 - Speed With Factory A/C

In today's increasingly sterile auto industry, talk of “utility” usually centers on 'cute' and 'ergonomic' crossovers that are essentially glorified minivans. Fortunately, as hardened car guys, we're smart enough to know a better definition of the word. To us, “utility” means having the room to carry a wide variety of essentials while having the ability to haul a whole lot of… umm… tail. That's why, roughly 47 years after their introduction, classics like this L48 350 V8 El Camino still mix serious fun with serious desirability. So, if you're looking for a muscle-bound Chevy that's ready to pose, play and tote some cruise night fun, check out this Mohave Gold El Camino!

The El Camino was so closely related to the Chevelle that everything from the windshield forward was largely interchangeable throughout both cars' generations, and engines were shared. The El Camino may have been late to the game, but it was outselling the Ford Ranchero by 20,000 units in 1972; its best year was this final year before a sweeping redesign. The next year, 1973, brought the oil crisis, massive downsizing, and a stranglehold on big-blocks, horsepower, and the entire musclecar era. The El Camino may have survived unscathed until 1987 (outlasting the Ranchero by eight years), but it would never again be the same.

Aesthetically, the El Camino never strayed far from the coupe or sedan it was founded on. At the front of this retro crossover, a familiar Chevelle grille hangs a fresh and prominent “SS” emblem between stainless-seated headlights, clean marker lamps and a thick chrome bumper. Above that bumper, an Super Sport hood flows to the glass, which is flanked by correct stainless frames and correct stainless drip rails. Beneath those rails, bold fender badging combines with correct wheel trim, traditional door handles and color keyed mirrors to add visual detail to the car's smooth profile. And at the back of that profile, a stainless-trimmed bed leads the eye to a black-trimmed tailgate, which hangs correct badging and clean reverse lamps between vivid taillights and a chrome bumper.


Toss this classic's hood and you'll find the original matching #'s L48 350 4bbl V8 engine. On top of the block, an open element air cleaner forces oxygen in to an holley carburetor and aluminum winters intake. The stock exhaust manifolds are matted to a dual exhaust system. To the front of the engine, factory air condition sends cool air through the interiors A/C vents. A heavy duty radiator keeps the engine running cool on those warm summer days. The factory power steering makes parking this El Camino a breeze at any car cruise.


Behind the original L48 small block, an Muncie 4 - speed transmission shifts smoothly through 4 gears.That transmission twists power to a 12-bolt, which spins the differential around it's gears. Holding that drivetrain off the ground is a correct F41 Heavy Duty Suspension, which is equipped with stiff springs, a heavy-duty sway bar and correct power steering. The car's power front disc and rear drum brakes are present, accounted for and function well. The stock exhaust manifolds dump spent gases in to dual aluminized pipes. Power meets the pavement via stylish 15 inch wheels and Firehawk radial tires.


Decked in Black vinyl, this pickup's interior features a host of fresh components. Its twin strato bucket seat displays correct vinyl upholstery. In front of those seats, a correct wood grain Super Sport dash hangs rpm tachometer and a correct electric clock above am/fm audio. At the sides of that dash, pliable, “SS” branded door panels bridge the gap between the carpet and a factory-spec headliner. And in front of the driver, a Sport tilt steering wheel keeps everybody pointed in the right direction.
