EL CANAM-INO: 1974 Pontiac El Camino – SOLD!

Jun 2020 | Classifinds, Truckin Tuesday

July 21st Update:  We confirmed the seller of this very unique 1974 Pontiac Grand Am themed El Camino deleted his posting, so its safe to assume he finally found a new caretaker for this one-of-a-kind Ute.  Consequently, we’re calling this one “Sold!”

June 30th Update:  We’re simply in shock this very unique 1974 Pontiac El Camino we first featured last Christmas Eve still has yet to find a buyer.  The seller just posted a fresh listing on Sunday with the same $11,500 asking price.  Good luck with the purchase!

June 2nd Update:  when we found this unique 1974 Pontiac El Camino on Christmas Eve this past December, it had already been posted nearly one month and assumed it was long gone shortly after we posted it.  Fast forward nearly six months and we’re pleased to see this one-of-kind build is still available and the asking price reduced $1,000.  

Dear Santa, I want…no, I NEED this 1974 Pontiac El Camino!  C’mon, I’ve been a very good boy all year and I need a UTE that stands out from every other El Camino…

Back from last Christmas is this very cool 1974 Chevrolet El Camino last listed in June 2020 on Craigslist for $11,500 in Gasport, NY (north of Buffalo) converted to have the front end of a ’74 Grand Am combined with Pontiac running gear and an interior.  Using a 400 cubic inch powered ’74 Chevy El Camino as a proxy, the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the seller has his unique vehicle priced between the #2 “Excellent” estimate of $13,700 and the #3 “Good” appraisal of $9,300.  If you are serious about buying this unique ride, you can call Roy at (716) 696-0988 to start the conversation if you are serious about buying this unique vehicle!

The conversion of this UTE was not merely the exterior.  The interior has a Grand AM/Grand Prix dashboard, console, and bucket seats. It really works well, and while the seller says this is not a show quality car, its distinctiveness will get you noticed at every show you drive it to.  I love how good the Trans Am snowflake-style wheels from a few model years later look on this car.  Good luck with the purchase and if you buy it, please let us know – we’d love to see it in person.

Here’s the seller’s description:
