1972 Chevrolet El Camino SS

Mileage: 126,330

Hoback Junction, WY | Posted September 1, 2020

$25,000

1972 El Camino SS Clone- Big Block, Muncie M-20 wide ratio 4-Speed and 12 bolt rear. I built this to take road trips both short and long distance. Since I have completed my share of the work, I have taken short trips of under 600 miles and longer trips of up to 1500 miles. The El Camino has never left me stranded. I believe the rear gear ratio is around a 3.36 posi. So, you can cruise on the freeway without having the engine running high rpms. I purchased the El Camino years ago and have used it to make long and short road trips. From what I can tell it started out as a 305 El Camino according to the VIN., possibly with the SS appearance package. The previous owner installed a big block with what feels like stock specs. At the same time a new drive shaft was installed. It appears the front end was rebuilt with correct big block springs. It has the large torsion bars on the front and rear. It drives straight and true down the road. It runs very well and does not use oil. I have had the rear end drained and fresh fluid put in. When it was drained, I asked the mechanic if there was any damage to the ring and pinyon and was told there was no damage. Since then I have installed new wiper blades complete not just the rubber, new floor mats with the El Camino logo. I had the tach rebuilt to better reflect the rpm’s as I had installed a new Delco HEI electronic distributor along with new R44T spark plugs. A new horn relay was installed after finding the old was intermittent. The speedometer was sent out and was disassembled, cleaned and worn parts were replaced and then recalibrated. I replaced the flasher unit and one door jamb switch as it was not working. I had the Muncie removed and serviced with the following work done, replacement of third gear, both shift forks and 3-4 Syncro assembly, new clutch plate, throw out bearing, pilot bearing and had the flywheel resurfaced along with a full gasket kit. Had the shift linage adjusted to tighten up the shifting of the Muncie. It is now very tight and never misses a gear. The remainder of the Muncie was not in need of other work. Installed new cancelling cam and installed new dimmer switch. Installed new one wire alternator and had to change out the amp gauge to a volt gauge to get a better reading. New taillight bezels were installed with new tailgate trim. The interior fan was repaired as it was not working and a new blower resistor was installed at the same time. Replaced incorrect power steering box along with the coupling with correct one. New motor mounts were installed as one of them was cracked and ready to break. For some reason the bell crank had been bent so it was removed and fixed. The original Rally Wheels were sand blasted and refinished in correct grey along with new Bow Tie wheel caps. A new circuit board for the Dash was installed as the old one had one section that was not working. A spare tire fastener kit was installed for the spare tire. There are two spare tires with the El Camino one is a space saver style and the other is a full size 15-inch tire on a new SS 15x7 wheel. I find the space saver to give the passenger more leg space. Door edge guards were put on to keep the doors from chipping along the leading edge of the doors. A new vinyl top with molding was installed. The seats were reupholstered with premium material along with new foam. A new antenna kit was installed as when I received the El Camino the antenna was broken. A new dash clock was installed as the old one would only work intermittently. New tailgate upper and lower molding kits were installed along with new SS emblems front and rear. It has power front disc’s and rear drum brakes both still with 70 percent pads left. Has sport mirrors with left hand side being adjusted from inside the cab. It has a SS cowl hood with SS stripes. Has a reproduction Delco side mount battery with correct battery cables. The seat belts are the three-point style with the shoulder belt going up to the ceiling. The starter was removed and rebuilt some years ago. It has the heavy-duty radiator with a seven-blade fan. It has never overheated on any drive. It has the original air conditioning compressor and it does work. The previous owner installed a C-D AM/FM radio. I installed rear mounted speakers behind the head rests. It has the comfort tilt steering wheel which I find to be very comfortable for long drives. I have installed new shocks both front and rear, with the rear being High Jacker air shocks. New BF Goodrich Radial TA 275 R 60 15 ‘s were installed on the rear and on the front were put 225 R 60 15’s were installed about 2500 miles ago. A new cover was installed on the hydraulic piston bed cover aluminum frame. The inside of the bed of the El Camino has been Rhino lined and appears new. A rubber floor mat has been in the rear of the bed since I have had the El Camino so the bed still looks new. A correct new upper radiator hose was installed when the anti-freeze was drained and changed recently along with the oil and filter. A new gas tank and lines were added. The El Camino is rust free both body and under the vehicle. The front-end components were all upgrade to a big block set up. The head rests were replaced with new ones when the seats were redone. I believe the engine is a 402 which would have come in a 72. I am unsure how to tell for sure.
Now for the not so good. The carpet under the floor mats should be changed out. The carpet has slightly faded and heat shield should be installed under the carpet instead of the hemp material originally used by Chevrolet. Because of the floor mats I never saw a need to replace the carpet. The washer pump needs to be replaced. The wiper motor works fine but the pump is no longer working. It would be nice to find a factory original AM/FM radio and have it converted to work with a cell phone and then installed. The paint I believe is a respray from many years ago, even though the paint code on the VIN tag says it is the correct color so it could be the original paint, needs to be resprayed for a trailer queen look. If this is the original paint job then someone really took care of the paint. The current paint job shines up really nice but over the years there have been small chips in different areas that were touched up. I get a lot of compliments on how well it looks so it never was a big deal to me. There is no rust that I can find and the body along with the frame is straight so a paint job would not require any rust repair. The original rear view mirror is starting to flake around the edges and could be replaced but currently it does not hinder your view. The heater fan needs to be replaced as it only works on two speeds instead of three. It has a slow and a mid-speed no fast speed. For the full trailer queen effect taking all the stainless off and sending it out would be the last thing I would do. After doing the above I am not sure I would drive it on the road anymore.
It has been a wonderful El Camino for me with lots of memories. It is always an item of discussion whenever I stop at a hotel or gas station. I get lots of thumbs up when other cars are next to me on the open road. It has always started no matter what the temp is outside and has never broken down on me. I am downsizing as I have been diagnosed with a disease that is slowly debilitating me and I am no longer able to enjoy it. Hopefully it finds a good home and gives as much enjoyment to the new owner as it has to me. Really not much left to do if you want to turn it into a Trailer Queen! Can help with delivery arrangements.
