Brion P’s 1972 El Camino

Built From The Ground Up

Brion P’s 1972 El Camino

When he was 16 years old, Brion P had a 1972 El Camino SS350 for his first car. Unfortunately, he didn’t behave himself with it so his father sold it to teach him a lesson.

In 1994, Brion came across this specific 1972 El Camino and just knew he had to have it because of that first El Camino that got taken away. It is an original SS454 with the original orange paint from the factory, and Brion has been the third owner for the past 26 years.

It retains the original 454 big block, now bored .030 over. Upgrades include a 3 angle valve job, roller rockers, and a nice lumpy cam. It runs through a TH400 with a full manual shift mod.

The El Camino needs a few things updated and could probably do with a fresh coat of paint, but overall it’s in great shape, detailed underneath and has never been driven in the rain according to Brion.
