The word "practicality" is hardly heard in the muscle car world, that is, unless you drive an El Camino. Built to be a practical way of getting about and experiencing what a muscle car has to offer, this legendary car-truck combo from Chevrolet sparked a segment in the automotive scene and is bound to turn heads to this day as one drives by. Always wanted to get a piece of practical muscle car ownership? This 1977 Chevrolet El Camino, with a reported 166,389 miles on the clock, is one neat restoration project that runs well and is ready to liven up your weekends.
Out of the many cars, bigger American cars that left manufacturers' factory floors, only a handful survived the change the automotive world brought about and external factors like the oil crisis of the 70s. This 1977 Chevrolet El Camino with its two-tone blue exterior is a survivor and wears its battle scars proudly. The blue exterior sports all its chrome components, with even the side rails still on the car; matching the chrome is a set of silver wheels that are reportedly new and wrapped with a fresh set of tires. The blue theme also spreads to the car's interior, with blue accents throughout the vehicle. You would also find wood trim blending in well with an aftermarket radio cassette player ensuring your tunes are done justice. Of course, like the exterior, some work is required, so this is a blank canvas for you. Fully stock or restomod luxury? Your call.
While the body and interior require some wrenching and restoration, you can rest assured that the 5.7L V8 powertrain under the hood of this 1977 Chevrolet El Camino functions right and roars with all its might. The old-school muscle car performance reportedly has some refreshments to make it reliable. It comes in the form of a new thermostat, water pump, and radiator for cooling down all that performance. Speaking of performance, the current owner reports a new fuel pump, carburetor for efficient fuel delivery, and new brakes for better stopping power. With a reported rebuild on the engine and a new power steering unit in place, this classic American powerhouse is a treat to drive and own. All this refreshed power is sent to the car's rear wheels through an automatic transmission with a reported new clutch for smoother gear shifts.
