Rare Choo Choo Customs El Camino Carefully Restored

The Chattanooga Choo Choo is not just a Glenn Miller song, but also a special El Camino. These cars were customized in Chattanooga, TN by Choo Choo Customs for Chevrolet from 1983 to 1987. Only a few thousand total were made through all five model years, 861 of them in 1987, the El Camino's last production year.

The Choo Choo Custom El Camino was an appearance package upgrade without additional performance enhancements. The front bumper became an aerodynamic nose, and the front fascia and tailgate were emblazoned with big black "SS" graphics, the doors with "El Camino SS." The cowl induction hood was non-functional, unless you consider looks the function. The Choo Choo Train Logo also makes an appearance throughout, setting the car farther apart from the run-of-the-mill.

This car is motivated by a new crate 305 V8 as the original was damaged by overheating. The exterior has seen a careful and complete repaint, and the interior is fresh, clean, and new. The stereo has been upgraded, but the original is still present should you want to play that Bon Jovi or Michael Jackson tape. Also included is the original 1987 El Camino owner's manual, a binder with photos documenting the restoration, plus pages and pages of well-organized original documentation.

So practical and so cool, this is the car to take on a date to Lowe's, or maybe a trip with your mountain bikes to a local trailhead. If this calls to you, call us. Art & Speed. (901) 850-0507. Financing available.
