bonspeed's 1971 Pro-Touring El Camino Through the Cones

bonspeed's 1971 El Camino Big Block Power and 18" wheels.
bonspeed has finally finished the pro-touring El Camino project it has been constructing. This muscle car was on the cover of Car Craft in January of 1998 and they hailed it as the start of a new trend.  Car Craft recognized the new lead of muscle cars that handled!  Trick back then was four wheel discs, coil-over rear suspension and dropped front spindles.

The problem was, despite a frame-up rebuild many parts still were not yet available for these cars. It looked great had plenty of power, but despite tuning it still handled like a pig.
Stopping a big car like this is no problem with BAER 6p brakes!

So a year ago the car started a transformation and here are some of the newest modifications:
• BAER 6p brakes and 13" rotors f&r.
• Hotchkis front suspension with tubular a-arms.
• A Currie fabricated 9" rear hung with coil-overs.
• Shorty headers by Sanderson.
• Stainless steel exhaust by MagnaFlow.
• Quick Fuel Technology fuel system.
• Energy Suspension engine mounts.
• 18X8 & 18X10 bonspeed Wheels.

Now its time for you to get started on that project of yours.  Let bonspeed help with your custom wheels!
