1972 Chevy El Camino – A redesigned A-body platform translated into a longer wheelbase for Chevrolet’s 1968 El Camino. Sales went up by 20 percent to 41,791 – a new high for the car. That record then soared to more than 57,000 in 1972, the last year for the Coke-bottle-shaped Chevelle body that had debuted four years before. Popularity of V-8 engines was on the rise, and by 1969, 94 percent of that year’s El Camino run was ordered with either a small-block or big-block. The latter group consisted of the SS 396 rendition, introduced the year before. Like its Malibu-based counterpart, the SS 396 El Camino came standard with a blacked-out grille, bulging hood and a 325-horsepower 396-cid Mk IV V-8. Again like its passenger-car cousin, the Super Sport El Camino appeared in two forms in 1970: an SS 396 and SS 454. Most prized in the latter ranks were the super-rare LS6 version and their 450 wild horses.
Muscle cars have been popular for decades and clean classic trucks have been in high demand over the last few years. The 1972 El Camino is the best of both worlds and really is just a great classic vehicle to own for all occasions. This El Camino has both the looks and the performance that make it great to drive around town and show off to all the neighbors. The exterior is finished in a striking copper with a black center strip and a black vinyl roof. It also features a cowl induction hood as well as a vinyl bed cover to protect your belongings.
