This 1965 Chevrolet El Camino is a true sleeper. After all, on the outside, it just looks like a clean and crisp classic. But as you dig deeper, you'll discover a 790+ horsepower supercharged LS3 V8, upgraded suspension, overdrive transmission, custom interior, and much more to deliver a seriously powerful restomod.
This El Camino can easily eat the streets, but you don't have to announce that everywhere you go. After all, this one makes a terrifically subtle first impression. It starts with the non-threatening white paint. Plus, the clean Chevelle grille, complete trim, and bright form-fitting bumpers just gives this the looks of a well-presented factory classic. It even has a classic Rally wheel package with black steelies that go nicely with the black liner paint in the bed. In fact, most people won't notice on the first glance that the rear wheels are actually a specialty piece made to accept the wider Mickey Thompson street slicks. Oh yes, this is an incognito classic on the outside.
The interior starts to give away this car's performance nature. It stars with modern high-back buckets with four-point racing harnesses. Behind that there's even a brace bar and fire extinguisher. You get some nice amenities like power steering, an AM/FM stereo with aux input for the most modern music players, and there's also provisions for air conditioning. But the upgrades you'll love the most all have to do with an investment in performance. The center console has a B&M shifter, and ahead of that is TCS readout with all your performance stats. Plus, there's a Grant Evolution GT steering wheel, large AutoMeter tach, boost meter, and auxiliary gauge trio. And we know you're going to love the Twist Machine paddle shifters that give you full control over the monster lurking under the hood.
For most of us, the modern fuel-injected LS3 V8 is the kind of upgrade we'd kill for in a classic, but that's just the base for this custom build. It has been fortified and enhanced with Spectre cold air induction, rectangular-port high-flow aluminum heads, Aeromotive fuel regulator, HD aluminum radiator, and methanol injection for a cooler/denser mixture. And oh yeah, there's Vortech supercharger with a strong Innovators West balancer. The full package is rated at a dominating 790+ horsepower, and we have the dyno sheet to prove it! Plus, the BBK shorty headers contribute to the power and rumble of the dual exhaust. But remember this is built to be a sleeper if you want it. So you can choose to have a nice rumble from the mufflers or use the electric cutouts to make an intimidating thunder. The 4L65E transmission is a modern stout unit that knows how to handle the paddle shifts, and this feeds a strong 12-bolt rear end with 3.55 gears and Positraction. And as you look at the undercarriage photos, you'll see more nice investments like a tubular A-arm front suspension and Wilwood front disc brakes.
The sale comes complete with build receipts, owner's manual, maintenance records, and restoration photos. This is the serious cool and seriously powerful custom you've been wanting. But if you don't act quick, the sleeper El Camino restomod of your dreams will be gone. Call today!!!
