Big-block? Six-speed manual transmission? Upgraded suspension? OEM styling? Sign me up! This El Camino really keeps the GM DNA alive and just adds more fun to that stock package. Owner Terry Davlin started with a stout heart for the build: a 468ci big-block Chevy that pumps out over 600 hp thanks to Canfield heads and a Holley Terminator EFI kit. Backed up to that stout mill is a T56 Magnum spinning a 4-inch aluminum driveshaft ending in a Moser 12-bolt rearend.

Keeping the Elco glued to the road is the job of UMI suspension parts front to back. QA1 coilovers control the up and down while Baer six-piston calipers slow down the custom Forgeline CR3 wheels.

On the outside there are little details like custom mirrors and a cleaned-up tailgate area. The big eye grabber is the BMW Long Beach Blue paint with satin charcoal stripes. Murpho’s in Buda, Texas, will handle the paint and body to make this project shine.
