From what you see in the wild, you’d tend to believe that every El Camino ever built was an SS with a 454 and a stick. But then there’s this, maybe the first ‘70 I’ve ever seen that hasn’t been turned into an SS clone.
In a way, I kinda hope it stays like this, because you never see it and it would almost be a shame to drop an LS into it. But then, what’s the use of it as is?
At a current bid around $15k, that sounds like somebody bidding on what it is rather than bidding on a clean one to modify.
