1985 Chevrolet El Camino
Back in the 1950's a woman from an Australian farm requested a car that she could go to church on Sunday, and haul pigs on Monday. The idea was hatched for a new kind of transportation, that being the multi-use vehicle. GM's version was the El Camino aptly named after the Spanish “The Way”.
This car/pickup for consignment has 122,440 miles (not known if actual) and presents clean with a fair condition exterior, and very nice interior. Bed is solid, and car runs smoothly, and starts quickly. Not a perfect example but owned by a consigner who was passionate about the El Camino ultimately owning several of them. Also noted a Z15 Super Sport Package
Originally black now sporting a Black Cherry respray on panels that show some scratching, and slight misalignment particularly up front. Otherwise a rust free straight paneled car with nice chrome, grille work and brite work. The long bed is adorned with a rubber liner, and underneath there is no rust. Rear cargo door is marred a bit, but otherwise unremarkable.
All dressed up in gray cloth with tuck and roll pattern, the split bench stretches from door panel to door panel which are in good condition as well. The mid 1980's square design abounds on this interior with a wood grained dash, all square and housing round instrumentation. A very clean dash is noted in padded gray surround, and gray carpet floods the floor. Headliner shows nicely, and A/C and an aftermarket AM/FM/Cassette player has been inserted in place of the factory version.
Sitting within an unrestored and original engine bay with nice patina, we see a 4.3 Liter Fuel injected V6. This is backed by a 3-speed automatic transmission which pushes power to a 10-bolt 2.41 ratio rear axle.
Surface rust is noted on many surfaces but is in no way invasive. Structurally sound, and in overall nice condition, with power disc brakes up front and power drums on the rear.
A popular type of car prior to the onset of the SUV, what better to have a car that does the functions of a pickup. This versatile, good condition, quick starter, is ready for work or play, and a classic that is not seen all too often, it will turn heads!
