THE ESSENTIALS

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 602.245.7200.

Chevrolet El Camino

Interesting Fact: The Chevy El Camino was produced during two periods: from 1959 to 1960 and from 1964 to 1987. This pickup coupe was similar to a truck in its build by integrating a cargo bed into its body, but still being a low-ride car.   This model was born from the idea of developing…
Interesting Fact: The Chevy El Camino was produced during two periods: from 1959 to 1960 and from 1964 to 1987. This pickup coupe was similar to a truck in its build by integrating a cargo bed into its body, but still being a low-ride car.   This model was born from the idea of developing a coupe utility vehicle that could also be classified as a roadster. The Chevy Cameo Carrier pickup truck was instrumental in paving the way for the El Camino, and the latter was heavily based off the former. When released, the El Camino had a few variants with engines ranging from inline-six to inline-eight.   After its first year, ordered unexpectedly plummeted which lead to the model being discontinued. Chevy made serious revisions and relaunched the vehicle in 1964, based on a different model called the Chevy Chevelle. With more powerful engines and a sleeker design, the El Camino managed to stay in production for a far longer time. This model is a famous vehicle that many from around the world have tried to get their hands on!
