1972 El Camino Custom No Reserve!!! on 2040-cars

For sale is a 1972 Chevrolet El Camino Custom. It runs and drives/breaks great, and Iíve gone through periods where I used it as a primary means of transportation. It sure is an attention getteróI canít even go to the grocery store or gym without several people standing around it as I go to leave, asking questions, etc. Iíll miss it deeply for that reason alone.

The pics were taken outside, but it has been garage kept since day 1.

Itís not perfect. The belt sometimes squeals on start up, but it starts right up, runs and drives great. Itís got a few scratches, cracks, rust, dings etc. but nothing big or very noticeable. The dash seems to be missing some fasteners where the gauge cluster attaches. All the gauges work except for the oil lamp. No A/C or radio installed. While the headlights/taillights and blinkers work perfectly, the lights in the dash (blinker indicators, bulbs that illuminate the gauges at night, etc.) work but not consistently. The previous owner had pulled the A/C control panel out for some reasonóI suppose to replace it (as you can see it sits on the column in the pictures above).

Headlinerís in great shape. One of the seats is in great shape while the other isnítóthus I put the seat covers on both. It has the SS style dash (round gauges) and floor shifter (Hurst V-Matic 2) which I love. Windshield wipers work.

Wheels are in good shape. Lots of work done (on the suspension specifically) which Iíve attached pictures of the receipts to account for.

Never had access to a lift in order to identify the transmission type as the only way I know to do that is via the pan shape.

Auto blog's latest test results in a familiar winner [w/video]

Wed, 19 Jun 2013 has gone and thrown the latest batch of half-ton pickups into a cage match to see who would come out on top. The site put the 2014 Chevrolet Silverado 1500, GMC Sierra 1500, 2013 Ford F-150, Ram 1500, Toyota Tundra and Nissan Titan through a battery of tests. Those included 0-60 miles per hour acceleration, 60-0 mph deceleration, fuel economy, a hill climb, and payload and towing. They even threw the rigs on an autocross course to evaluate overall handling. Each truck was given points based on how it scored in each evaluation.
Who came out on top? Somewhat surprisingly, the 2013 Ford F-150 walked away with the gold, though fewer than 50 points separated first and fourth place. Head over to to read the full evaluation and the final results. You may be shocked to see exactly where some of the segment's newest additions placed. You can also watch a video on the test below.

Chevy might've pulled out of NASCAR if it weren't for new Gen 6 car

Wed, 20 Feb 2013

We've been on the fence with NASCAR for some time now. On one hand, it's some of the closest racing anywhere in motorsports, with actual passing and door-handle-to-door-handle action as a matter of course. But on the other, it's become template racing - a personality-driven sport more about the drivers than any sort of loyalty to a particular automaker. The Car Of Tomorrow format really rammed that message home, with a racecar's identity coming down to little more than headlamp stickers slapped on the nose. That's not necessarily a bad thing in and of itself, but we've wondered for some time what's in it for the automakers, who pay big money to stay in a series that has had little increasingly little do with street car sales, let alone innovation.
Apparently General Motors was beginning to wonder the same thing. In a new ESPN report, Rick Hendrick, team owner of Hendrick Motorsports, suggests that GM would have seriously considered leaving NASCAR if it wasn't for the move away from the COT to the new Gen 6 racer. According to Hendrick, GM North America boss Mark Reuss spearheaded the charge away from the 2007 COT and toward a racecar with clearer automaker ties - cars like the new Chevrolet SS racer shown above.

Now, if we could just get more rear-wheel drive V8 coupes into showrooms....

Why the Corvette is Chevrolet's billion-dollar baby

Thu, 28 Feb 2013

Edmunds has worked up a piece that tries to figure out just how much the global Chevrolet Corvette economy is worth, a spitballed guesstimate putting the number at more than $2.5 billion with the proviso that the number is probably low. It starts by taking Corvette's new car sales of 14,132 units last year, which would equate to $714,725,900 (including destination) assuming ever car sold was a base coupe with no options. In the final tally, a little extra padding gets that number up to $750,000,000.
But that's not all. Consider this: Many of the almost 1.4 million Corvettes produced over the model's history are still on the road. There are new parts being produced and aftermarket companies like Mid-America Motorworks deaing business, that single Illinois company doing more than $40 million a year in sales. There are the Corvette events large and small, restorers who do nothing but Corvettes, salvage yards that deal only in used Corvette parts and the Corvette magazines where owners find all this stuff.
And then there are the Corvette-themed tchotchkes, every single one of which provides a tiny contribution to the huge licensing royalties that General Motors collects every year. The article admits there's no way to come to an accurate number, but it just goes to show how valuable one specific model can be to a company.
