How much love do you have for the Chevrolet El Camino? Enough to support a flashy yet equally cool build? We hope so, as you are about to meet one special machine that deserves to sit under the online spotlight for as long as possible.
Not many people would choose to bring out the shine within such a model by using a rose gold signature. However, the owner of this fifth-generation Chevy El Camino did, and we're glad they chose this approach, which is both interesting and unique.

The first thing that stands out is the new wheelset. The alloys came from Forgiato's portfolio, and since they are also fans of this project, they decided to share the images posted above on social media a few hours ago.

The pictures reveal additional rose gold touches besides those on the wire-like wheels bedecked by the company's logo on the center caps. This hue was applied to the simple yet classy front bumper, to the surrounds of the front and rear windscreen and the side windows, the door handles, and the rear bumper. We can also see more rose gold accents on the outer edges of the open bed.

For a deeper effect, this classic ute, as Australians would call it, has smoked taillamps incorporated into the rear bumper, and rather curiously, the headlamps don't feature this treatment. The grille is now black and it fits the bill perfectly, especially with the burgundy paint finish, which is the car's dominating hue.

You won't need to zoom in on certain images to see the interior through the windows, as these have an extra tint. The cabin is partially visible in a picture that puts the spotlight on the Forgiato-branded steering wheel, which copies the looks of the aftermarket alloys. Elsewhere, we can see that this car has beige upholstery, a few leather accents, some wooden trim, beige carpets, traditional gauges, and what appears to be a more modern stereo system.

We're fans of the jacked-up design of this fifth-generation (and the final one) Chevrolet El Camino. We like everything about it, from those special wheels with an intricate pattern to the rose gold accents applied to numerous components on the outside. We also think it looks great with the extra tinted windows, and the unique steering wheel is the perfect touch to round off the makeover.

Before wrapping up and moving on to the next story, we have to stress that even if it looks kind of fake from certain angles, rest assured, this El Camino is very much real, and it has the ability to inspire enthusiasts to build a similar ride. If it has inspired you, then why are you still reading?
