    Just became new owner of a 72 El Camino Chopped 4 in. but also rt side crashed into a pole. got me another 71 for parts and changed over the frame, disc brakes, changed to a 350 from a 305 changed the rear end to 10 bolt with 308's chopped the windshield wiper blade to fit the windshild never gave that a thought. and will have to lower the bench seat to see out the front window the guy I got it from for $650 was smaller and dumber and left some of his DNA in the car because the seats where held down with sheet metal screws.

    New '73

     



    Hey y'all,

    I just picked up a '73 a few weeks ago.
    the body is pretty straight but there is some light rust under the vinyl top.
    The engine is a smallblock 350. All of the running gear seems to be original, except for a few drop-in mods that the previous owner did. (chrome valve covers, 14 inch chrome air cleaner, etc.)

    It runs well and is a great daily driver. Once I rebuild the guts and cure it's case of ugly, it ought to be a beauty.
    (The last owner used cheap white acrylic paint with some homepainted blue/purple graphics )

    Time and work should make her shine though.
    Aren't ElCo's great?

    Had a 71 with an identity crisis for a while. did a impersionation of a 4x4, rally car, and 'Dukes of Hazard' charger on me. Was way into the throttle, hit some nice glare of the late afternoon sun, saw the turn too late, went through a small field where at the end of the field there was a nice berm of dirt left over from someone building a driveway. the berm was in perfect ramp like form and I ended up jumping the driveway. cleared it by about 6 - 8 feet both up and out. frame damage was too much for me to fix so it got sold. I wish every other day i still had that car.

    anyone looking for a camper/topper for 70-72? white with blue tinted windows. sweet retro look and great for road trips.
