This gorgeous El Camino SS is simply stunning to behold.  
Possibly the #1 finest modified El Camino in the world.
It reeks my enthusiasm for racing with just the right amount of robust customization to the drive-train and the inescapable good looks of an original stock SS with period Centerline Wheels.
Old School meets MBA from Art Center College Of Design.  
If you are someone that loves the way they came from the factory but want the new modern technology that makes it reliable, drivable and get ALL OF THE ATTENTION WHEN YOU PULL UP, then you may have just found the perfect EL CAMINO.  

This beast mode El-Co rocks in every way shape and form.  
The body work and paint is spectacular, smooth and mirror like.  
Everything lines up exactly like it should and it is clear this was an extremely straight Southern California original body car.  
The pans in the bed are PERFECT!
The undercarriage looks as good as the topsides of this little gem.
It’s never been driven in rain and has not served as a daily driver.  
You can get in and turn the key, it fires right up without hesitation.  
This holds especially true if you like to DRIVE it!
YOU WON'T SEE ANOTHER ELCO LIKE THIS ON EARTH!

In case you decide to chrome the carbs. I used advance plating over 10 yrs ago to do my three carbs still look as good as the day i installed them. Cool
