Classic Car Overview

Its official, 1980s El Caminos are worthy of collector status. This 1987 Chevrolet El Camino Conquista was deemed worthy enough to preserve for 32 years and it certainly attracts a lot of attention on the street. Use it as-is, give it some upgrades, or put it to work; at this price, what do you have to lose? Thanks to handsome two-tone blue paint, this El Camino looks like a far more expensive car than it is. It appears that the paint is original and has been very well cared for throughout the years, and its a combination that works particularly well on the Elkys bodywork, enhancing the length of the body and highlighting the cars unique features. It has clearly been properly maintained with no signs of being a work truck, and seeing anything built in the mid-80s to fit together this well is a surprise. And unlike many of its siblings, this one doesnt have any questionable modifications or upgrades, and its nice to see all the factory trim still in place. The stainless that highlights the fender wells provides a nice break point for the two-tone colors and the band of bright trim surrounding the bed and on the bed rails themselves remains in excellent condition. Theres also a rugged drop-in rubber bed liner, so you can still put this one to work on weekends if thats your plan, and a snap tonneau bed cover gives this Elky a bit of an upscale look. The mostly original interior is a real treat, starting with the luxurious-looking split-bench seat and 3-spoke woodrimmed steering wheel. The white-faced gauges inside the factory instrument panel should look familiar to anyone who drove a rear-wheel-drive GM product in the 80s, and this Elky includes an optional tachometer which is always a nice find. Surprisingly nice blue carpets and smooth door panels add to the well-kept feeling inside, and youll note that this El Camino is heavily optioned with power windows and locks, R134a A/C, and a tilt steering column. The original radio was yanked in favor of a AM/FM/CD head unit borrowed from a late-model GM, but it was fit neatly into the dash and really looks like it belongs. Youll be pleasantly surprised by how much room there is inside and how bright and airy it feels, despite the close-coupled two-seat 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 a 4-barrel carburetor and making a reasonable (for 1987) 150 horsepower. Most of the engine bay looks fairly stock, and all the factory running gear is still in place, more evidence that this car has been well maintained but never modified or abused in the 91,099 miles that its been on the road. A chrome air cleaner adds some sparkle to the all-business engine bay, and its full of mostly OEM components for reliability and easy service. There are signs of maintenance throughout the engine bay and its neatly detailed, and if you just want to drive, its ready to go! A TH400 3-speed automatic transmission means this El Camino is an easy highway cruiser, and it spins the original 10-bolt rear end with highway gears inside. A custom Flowmaster exhaust system splits into two pipes for a great sound, and youll note that the floors are extraordinarily clean, suggesting that this car has never lived in a rust belt climate. Flashy white wheels with center spinners add a slightly custom look and carry 215/70/14 Goodyear blackwall radials. The day of the El Camino is here, so whether you want to use this one for fun or work, it remains a great choice. Call today!
