1986 Chevy El Camino
Project: El Camino Verde
A friend of ours once said, “it isn't easy being green!” The guys at Holley are out to make life a little easier if you've got the blues over going green. Project El Camino Verde will feature a new line of parts that will make swapping GM's new emissions–compliant 430 hp E–Rod LS3 crate engine into various platforms. An F–body T–56 transmission will handle all the oats that the E–Rod package can deliver and a Hotchkis suspension upgrade and modern wheel and tire package wrapped around a set of big Baer brakes will ensure that this half truck half car handles and stops as well as it goes. Project El Camino Verde will serve as a test bed for LS swap parts and other new products and will showcase those products in driven form. You can check out Holley's Project El Camino Verde on the 2011 Hot Rod Power Tour and look for more information on the build in Super Chevy magazine. This is one G–Body that will be green and mean!
