Kelly K’s 1970 El Camino

Built From The Ground Up

Kelly K’s 1970 El Camino

Kelly got this 1970 El Camino just this past year and rebuilt a good deal of it right off the bat.

Kelly’s converted to power front disc brakes and added new braking components in the rear along with new springs. All of the front suspension and the steering system have also been upgraded. The paint or interior did not need to be addressed as those were completed by the previous owner.

“Nothing worked on the car when I first bought it except the front parking lights. It did run and drive.”


The 1970 El Camino has a run of the mill 350 small block with a TH350 transmission. This example was also optioned with factory air conditioning, and Kelly plans to get the AC system back up and running in the coming months.

There are also upcoming plans to replace the exterior trim and the weather stripping around the car as well.
