Classic Car Overview

Its official, 1980s El Caminos are worthy of collector status. This 1985 Chevrolet El Camino was deemed worthy enough to have a fairly comprehensive makeover, it remains one of the nicest truck/cars weve seen in a long time. It remains affordable, but the look screams expensive! Thanks to handsome two-tone paint, this El Camino looks like you spent a fortune on the upgrade. Blue and silver are a classic combination that works particularly well on the Elkys bodywork, enhancing the length of the body and highlighting the cars unique features. Lots of time clearly went into the paint job, with bodywork thats shiny and free of ripples, and getting anything built in the mid-80s to fit together this well takes dedication and patience. Thanks to modern urethane paint and an orange pinstripe separating the colors, it looks like a million bucks and aside from some cracking on the tailgate, it remains quite nice overall. Theres also a cowl induction hood and a rear roll pan to give it a bit for a custom look, and combined with the stance, it has a pro-touring look. Most of the chrome and stainless trim remains in place, although its been de-badged, and the band of bright trim surrounding the bed remains in excellent condition. And speaking of the bed, it has a spray-in bedliner so you can still put this one to work on weekends if thats your intention. The mostly original interior is in good shape, and it includes a luxurious-looking bench seat and custom billet steering wheel. The SS instrument panel should look familiar to anyone who drove a rear-wheel-drive GM product in the 80s, but its in remarkably good condition following the build, with a seamless dash pad and clear markings on the gauges. Blue carpets and matching door panels with neatly done speaker enclosures add to the OEM feeling inside, and youll note that this El Camino is heavily optioned with power windows and locks, A/C, cruise control, and a tilt steering column. The original radio was yanked in favor of a modern AM/FM/CD head unit in the dash and a set of subwoofers behind the seat. Youll be pleasantly surprised by how much room there is inside and how bright and airy it feels, despite the close-coupled body and big bed out back. This is a car that you could easily drive cross-country without feeling like it beat you up. The engine is a 305 cubic inch Chevy V8 topped by an Edelbrock intake manifold and 4-barrel carburetor and augmented with dual exhaust. Most of the engine bay looks fairly stock, but theres a bit more power on tap today than back in 1985. An open-element air cleaner and finned valve covers add some interest to the all-business engine bay, which uses mostly OEM components for reliability and easy service. A 3-speed automatic overdrive transmission means this El Camino is an easy highway cruiser, and it spins the original rear end, which has highway-friendly gears inside. A custom exhaust system splits into two pipes for a great sound, and that awesome stance comes from a set of 2-inch drop spindles up front. Flashy Boyd Coddington wheels wear 245/45/17 front and 275/40/17 rear performance radials. Someone invested quite a bit of time and effort to get this El Camino looking this good, and the results are certainly worth the asking price. El Caminos remain popular year after year and this one is proof that you dont need to spend a fortune to have a cool car. Call today!
