    Default El Camino Resurrected in eBay BUILT Series

    What can a custom paint shop do with parts from eBay Motors and a 1966 Chevrolet El Camino? A lot, or at least that’s what Rico Duran, owner of Duran’s Quality Painting, is out to prove.

    With a shop staffed mostly by family, Duran and his team will enter eBay Motors’ “BUILT” competition with the ultimate goal of raising money for the SEMA Memorial Scholarship Fund. Airing now, “BUILT” challenges four shops to purchase a vehicle on eBay Motors, and customize it using only parts sourced from eBay.



    Duran’s road won’t be an easy one though: the El Camino isn’t drivable at the moment. That might not be such a bad thing because buying a cheap car leaves more money for shiny new parts from eBay Motors.

    The first two episodes take a deep dive into what’s wrong with the El Camino. But it’s the following eight episodes (running through August 27) that will give you a chance to see if the family paint shop claiming high profile clients like David Beckham can hack it against hot rodders, euro modders and kings of the four-wheel drive domain.

    The four finished projects — which include the El Camino, a 1968 Chevrolet G20 van, a 1984 Porsche 911 and a 1970 Jeep Grand Cherokee Commando — will be auctioned on eBay to benefit each garage’s chosen charity. They’ll then take a final bow at this year’s SEMA in Las Vegas.

    ”BUILT” premiered on July 16th, and runs through August 27th. Watch the episodes here.

    X2. Swap the wheels with some torque thrusts and it would make a perfect hot rod. That Elco sits higher than anything in my driveway. And if those are 15's then 2 thumbs down for not doing their homework on the current traditional things it takes to call it a lowrider.

    There is a list of everything that was bought for the build at the site.

    You do realize there was a strict budget and everything had to be purchased from EBAY. Probably not enough money left for a setup who knows. But they did a hell of a job representing for the lowriders.
