Has there ever been a "REAL" El Camino racecar?

So, I have a 1970 El Camino. I post photos every chance I get.

Illustration for article titled Has there ever been a REAL El Camino racecar?


It is not a real SS; it is a standard El Camino Custom with a 350 V8 and a 3 speed automatic. I've owned it for over 10 years now, and I love it to death. It's not highly "collectible", but I love it to death and I want to keep it forever. I want to build it into something cool without caring about resale value, but have never been able to decide what to build. Then I came across this awesome Ford Falcon.


I would love to make my El Camino into something like this. Have any of you heard of/seen any photos of a "real" El Camino racecar before? I could certainly fake something like this, but it would be cool to have some idea of what a real one would look like.


If any of you help, I'll love you forever. Maybe I'll let you drive it one day.
