Prepare to be impressed. Now I don''t say that very often, but in the case of this 1970 El Camino, there are so many engineering marvels involved that you will need a full day to see them all. LS1 power, four-wheel discs, and a low-key largely stock look make this one of the slickest resto-mods we''ve ever featured. At first glance, you''d probably mistake this for a nicely restored Elky with some flashy wheels, which is partially true. The bodywork is exceptional, the Cranberry Red paint scheme is authentic, and with black SS stripes, it definitely looks like a predator from 1970. Then you look a little closer and see that they totally nailed the details, ranging from airbrushed SS badges to the sport mirrors to the shaved door handles, all of which give the truck a stock-with-a-twist look. Workmanship is impressive and every square inch of the body has been massaged, straightened, and polished to make this truck a show-stopper wherever it goes, and that''s before they even open the hood! It also still works as a truck, as the bed is finished with spray-in bedliner materials and a mat, which makes this one of the more interesting machines we''ve featured. I mean, just because it CAN haul a deck''s worth of lumber, would you still do it? Offering a trick mixture of old and new, the interior was completely restored using as many correct components as possible. That means the bucket seats and center console are OEM with fresh trim to make them look new, and the door panels are just the way they were in 1970. But when you slide behind the wheel and grab the Camaro steering wheel, which has been fully wrapped in black leather, you''ll realize this is no ordinary El Camino. A full array of Auto Meter instruments takes the place of the rather bland factory setup and use a trick carbon-fiber-look fascia to update the whole package. In fact, much of the dash has controls from the late-model Camaro that donated its powerplant, including the headlight switch, power seat motors, and tilt steering column. An AM/FM/CD stereo delivers eardrum-splitting performance to match the engine up front, and yes, the horseshoe shifter now manages four gears instead of three, but we''ll get to that in a moment. The entire powertrain was lifted from a 1999 Camaro, including the all-aluminum LS1 engine. Camaros are great donors due to their cable-actuated throttle bodies (the ''Vette is fly-by-wire), and the performance upgrade here is significant. The lightweight small block drops between the El Camino''s fenders like it was born there, and they were able to integrate all the Camaro''s systems like the A/C setup. It''s backed by the Camaro''s 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission which powers a Mosier-built 12-bolt rear with 3.55s on a Posi inside. Massive vented and cross-drilled disc brakes provide eyeball-bouncing stopping power in the vintage pickup, and a slightly lowered stance is compliments of custom coils all around. Oversized 18-inch alloys look right because someone nailed the offsets, so the 245/45/18 front and 275/40/18 rear radials fill the wheel wells perfectly. There''s too much in this build to cover it all here. The car comes with extensive receipts, diagrams, and specs outlining the build, and we''d be happy to spend an hour or two telling you all about it. Call today!
