Cranberry Red Black SS Stripes
I am the third owner of this California car. I bought it from a fellow in Stockton CA. I kept it fairly stock until last year when I put the Corvette rear suspension in it.
1972 Chevrolet El Camino (Cranberry Red Black SS Stripes)
GM 330 hp 350 crate motor. Holley Sniper EFI. compact serpentine drive. 4 pass radiator with dual electric fans. 9” dual brake booster with CPP master and adjustable proportioning valve. New A/C system including ultra efficient condenser.
Recently removed all original interior and encapsulated any sign of surface rust. No other rust found. Installed a modified black TMI bench seat kit including red houndstooth inserts to coordinate the interior and exterior colors. Installed power windows with switches that utilize stock cranks. The dash cluster was replaced with a Dakota Digital HDX cluster. All vacuum pots replaced for vent system. Dynamat applied along with jute.
Basically stock. I did install a 68 tailgate to clean up the appearance. I moved the backup lights to the bumper. I have a base/clear Cranberry red paint with black SS stripes. The bed is body worked and has Linex tinted liner applied. I have a “soft” tonnau cover installed operated with linear actuators to raise and lower the cover plus provide some security.
