Texas Classic Cars of Dallas is proud to present this classic 1972 Chevrolet El Camino musclecar. This example sports a recent crate 454 engine with performance extras. Approximately 2,000 miles have been logged on this engine. We have receipts for the work performed. The engine and transmission were installed by Luttrull McNatt Chevrolet in Sanger, Texas. This car/truck is very fun to drive and a real head-turner with its red finish & white SS stripes. Enjoy our presentation and feel free to contact Dave at 214-213-7072 or Maris at 214-616-2317 with any questions.

Many of our photos of this El Camino were taken at the Dallas Love Field Frontiers of Flight Museum, located only minutes from our showroom. Be sure to visit our friends at the Flight Museum should you find yourself in Dallas, Texas. The exterior is finished in bright red with full Super Sport 454 badging throughout along with SS stripes on the cowl induction hood. Note there are some chips along the door edge as seen above.

Close inspection of the paint will reveal an overall good polished finish with some imperfections. There are some chip touch-ups and a substantial area of rust through starting to show through the paint in a lower quarter panel area. This area is below and to the right of the fuel filler door (see above). The white vinyl top really fits the car well and is in excellent condition. Open the doors to 1972.

The interior features  your standard black vinyl '72 El Camino affair with bucket seating and factory gauges along with an underdash trio of engine vital gauges. This is a 7.4 Liter GM Crate 454HO installed in late 2007 with verifying receipts. Approximately 2,000 miles have been logged on it thus far.

Under the hood is the crate 454 c.i. V8 making approximately 425 horsepower. Induction is courtesy of a Demon 4bbl. carburetor & aluminum intake. Exhaust gases are expelled through reliable cast-iron manifolds to custom dual pipes & mufflers. Chrome tips exit the rear. Ignition duties are handled by an Accell HEI distributor. This is a great running & driving El Camino. The engine compartment displays factory air conditioning, power steering, and power brakes. The TH350 automatic transmission is a remanufactured unit by Jasper transmission.Further inspection of the engine compartment confirm solid original sheetmetal throughout the firewall, inner fenders, and core support.

The performance built TH350 automatic shifts as it should should, nice and firm. It is clean and dry underneath. There are not a lot of miles logged on this drivetrain at all.  The undercarriage displays excellent original floor pans and frame throughout. The engine and transmission undersides are clean. The 10-bolt differential is in very good condition. This is a dry climate car. These classic 15-Inch SS wheels are fitted with raised white letter radial tires. The custom dual exhaust sounds great, like only a healthy big block 454 does. Be sure to play the video.

The bed is in excellent condition, inside and out. The tailgate is clean and straight. The paint looks great throughout the bed and tailgate as does the trim. The brightwork and badging is in excellent condition throughout this El Camino.
