1970 Chevy El Camino Custom, 572 V8, Compete Restoration, Show Ready!

This is a gorgeous restoration of a rust-free California El Camino.  Our client, Glenn, started with a rust-free California El Camino and set out on a no-expense spared, professionally built custom- just as he wanted it.  With less than 1,600 miles since the completion of its build, this is ready for touring, showing and flat out enjoyment.  The build quality is top notch and will not disappoint.  Here are some details:

The paint and bodywork were performed by Tony’s Auto Restoration in Corona, CA.  The quality is fantastic!

The show quality custom interior trimwork is all custom and was performed by Frank’s Hot Rod Upholstery in Temecula, CA.  The cockpit has a “Flaming River” steering column and wheel, Alpine Stereo, Satellite and DVD with “Corbeau” seats.

The crate 572 cu in V-8 sounds fantastic.  The engine is a GM ZZ572 with 9.5:1 compression, 620 HP and 650 ft lbs of torque for a reliable powerhouse.  The fuel injection is by Danzo Performance with Motech Components (the air cleaner is made to look like it had carbs!).  The exhaust is a 3″ custom header by “Lemons Headers” with a full 3″ exhaust.  The power is transmitted through a GM 700R4 by “Art Carr” with overdrive and 3,000 RPM stall.  The rear-end differential is a Ford 9-in by “Currie” with 3.73:1 gearing.

The front-end suspension is by “Global West” and the rear end is “Hotchkiss & Edelbrock”.  Meanwhile, stopping this El Camino is done by Wilwood and the cool looking American Racing Wheels (front: 235/55/R16, rear 325/50/15).

More details will be forthcoming.  In the interim, look closely at the photo gallery.  For more details please email us at harry@classicpromenade.com or call us at 951.901.5088.
