History
Purchased in 2011, my vehicle had already gotten a body-off restoration. It's not a numbers-matching car so I was free to modify to my liking.
1974 Chevrolet El Camino (Marina Blue)

Modifications

Drivetrain
Period-correct 350ci small-block, Kieth Black pistons, Eagle I-Beam connecting rods (5140 steel, 50% stronger than stock, weight-matched set ±2g), 750 CFM 4-barrel Speed Demon Carb, Edelbrock RPM Air Gap Intake Manifold, Edelbrock PERFORMER RPM™ 6089 Heads, MSD Street Fire HEI & Distributor.

Estimated 450 Hp (haven't had it dyno'd)
Interior
Custom blue tweed.
Exterior
I get a lot of strange looks at Home Depot but I really do use it like a truck. Rear air shocks ensure I can handle the load.
Audio
GM 700R4 Turbo-Hydramatic automatic transmission with overdrive & oil cooler. 10-bolt, Ford 9” Third Member rear end with 3.89 gearing.
Wheel and Tire
235/60R15 front, P295/50R15 rear on American Racing Torq Thrust II bright PVD wheels.
