1970 Chevrolet El Camino
So-Cal Speed Shop built. LS7 427, 6 speed. 650hp
Built by Pete Chapouris' 'SoCal Speed Shop' for the TLC show 'Hard Shine'. Its owner, Spectre Racing, drove it to both road course and drag racing duties. It has power steering and AC, so can be comfortably street driven between races. No holds barred or expense spared. Appraised in 2008 for $180,000+
Starting with a no hit, no rust 1970 El Camino donor, the LS7 was installed between custom tubular front frame rails which lowered the engine down and back about 8" making for close to 50/50 weight distribution. The rowdy 427 cu inch engine crate motor was purchased brand new from Chevrolet. It puts out 650hp and almost equal torque! a Tremec 6 speed manual shifts gears. There are lots of custom modern suspension pices and parts from Global West with Baer 6 piston calipers with vented rotors to slow things down, OMG!
