The 1965 Chevrolet El Camino is a legendary vehicle that combines the practicality of a pickup truck with the style and performance of a muscle car. This particular El Camino, however, takes things to a whole new level. With a massive 496 cubic inch GM Big Block engine that’s been outfitted with a BDS 8-71 Blower, this Pro Street El Camino generates an incredible 770 horsepower and 830 pounds of torque. And that’s just the beginning.
One look at the interior of this custom Chevy and it’s clear that no expense was spared in creating a show-stopping ride. The black leather factory bucket seats provide both comfort and style, while the Hurst shifter adds a touch of old-school cool. The billet steering wheel and wicked dash with Autometer gauges complete the look, creating an interior that’s as impressive as the exterior.
Under the hood, the 496ci engine is a work of art. With the BDS blower sitting atop the massive block, this El Camino is a true force to be reckoned with. The Muncie 4-speed transmission ensures that all that power is sent to the rear wheels, giving the driver complete control over the massive amount of torque on tap.
But it’s not just the engine that’s been upgraded on this El Camino. The suspension has been fully customized as well, with coilover shocks and tubular control arms up front, and a four-link setup with a Ford 9-inch rear end out back. The massive Mickey Thompson tires ensure that all that power is put to the ground, while the Wilwood brakes provide ample stopping power when needed.
All in all, this 1965 Chevrolet El Camino is a true masterpiece of automotive engineering. From the massive Big Block engine to the custom interior and suspension, every detail has been carefully crafted to create a vehicle that’s both show-stopping and thrilling to drive. And with 770 horsepower under the hood, it’s a ride that’s sure to turn heads wherever it goes.
