Gabriel giving away an El Camino

Gabriel Ride Control is celebrating the 50th anniversary of the HiJackers brand by hosting a sweepstakes for a custom 1967 El Camino truck.

The company is partnering with RTM, the producers of automotive television newtork PowerNation, on the giveaway.

“2017 is a big year for us to celebrate,” said Jonathon Gore, director of marketing at Gabriel, which is celebrating its 110th year as well. “It was a natural fit to commemorate this year in a giveaway of an iconic vehicle that embodies a hard-working attitude combined with a wild streak of power and performance.”

The El Camino will feature a six-liter LS and HiJacker shocks and will be built by Jeremy Bumpus and Lawrence “LT” Tolman, co-hosts of PowerNation TV’s Truck Tech show.

Originally designed to restore balance to vehicles carrying and hauling heavy loads, Hijacker became popular amongst muscle car and street racing enthusiasts in the last 1960s and early 1970s, Gabriel said in an announcement.

The contest is open until August 2017 and viewers can enter here.
