Jimmy Buffett’s 1972 Chevrolet El Camino SS is for sale and ready for a road trip to Margaritaville. Parrotheads have a new reason to head to Florida for a spring break vacation.
A 1972 Chevrolet El Camino SS once owned by Jimmy Buffett will be coming across the auction block at the Barrett-Jackson auction in Palm Beach the weekend of April 11-12.
According to the auction company, Buffett bought it in 2013 and owned it for a couple of years before selling it to the current owner.
While its beige upholstery appears original, the exterior of the 2-door pickup is in excellent shape.
It’s not all-original, however, and is equipped with a 350 V8 crate engine with an Edelbrock 4-barrell carburetor that’s under a cowl-induction hood.
It also has a 3-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes and air conditioning, making it an enjoyable daily driver coastal cruiser.
Barrett-Jackson doesn’t say what they think it will sell for, but the Hagerty Price Guide says a similar car in perfect condition would sell close to $28,000, but with the music history and modifications there’s really no telling what this one could go for.
You just never know with these auctions. For all we know there could be a bidding war between two Jimmy Buffet fans. Here’s your chance to buy Jimmy Buffet’s 1972 Chevrolet El Camino SS. Stay Tuned!Auto News, Blog
