AWESOME BUILD! 355 V8, 4 SPD AUTO, COLD A/C, MANY OPTNS, HUGE BANG FOR THE BUCK!

You can get a pretty good idea of how nice this very impressive 1985 Chevrolet El Camino is just from the price. It's still quite affordable and represents a massive bang for the buck, but the quality of the build and the long list of new and upgraded components (yeah, that's a built 355 under the hood) make it far more desirable than your average bargain-basement beater.

Let's start with the bodywork, which is laser straight and doesn't look like the beat-up old El Camino your gardener uses to haul tools. As a lifetime South Carolina car, it's quite clean and obviously rust is a non-issue, but you will definitely be impressed by the quality of the repaint. The two-tone black over silver finish makes it look sleek and futuristic, and with a mild chin spoiler and cowl-induction hood, it has a long, low look that works rather well. No graphics, no emblems, just an ultra-clean Elky that someone spent a ton of time and money restoring and we like how the red pinstripe was used to separate the two colors. The bed doesn't look like it ever had to work for a living, and was refinished with the rest of the car and is now protected by a spray-in bedliner and hard-shell tonneau, so you can consider it the world's biggest trunk. There are also bright chrome bumpers, a stock grille, and body-colored side mirrors borrowed from an SS. The entire look is one that will have people thinking it's a custom, but in reality they've just never seen an El Camino this clean and well-finished.

The interior offers the same trick "is it stock or not" vibe, with a custom upholstered split bench, factory door panels, and matching gray carpets, which are brand new and look fantastic. This Elky is also loaded with options, including cold A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt steering column, and cruise control. The gray upholstery and works quite well with the sleek silver and black bodywork and easily sheds that stodgy 1980s GM image that the Monte Carlo and El Camino seemed to share. Factory gauges are quite complete, including a tach, and they're bright and clear through the spokes of the stock 2-spoke steering wheel. A newer Pioneer AM/FM/CD stereo sounds awesome in the cozy El Camino passenger compartment with speakers expertly tucked out of sight.

But the real magic of this El Camino is underneath, where a fresh 355 cubic inch V8 was dropped between the frame rails. Based on a 1981 350 block, it was fortified with a set of Dart Sportsman heads with oversized valves and a custom tuned-port injection system. An MSD ignition system lights it up and long-tube headers bolster an already fat torque curve. A new serpentine belt drive with polished or chrome accessories means that you can drive it anywhere with confidence, and between that 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission and a line lock on the front discs, this sucker can make some pretty spectacular burn outs. High-flow mufflers sound fantastic and it sits on chrome Torque Thrust wheels with 245/45/17 Kumho performance radials for just a bit of an attitude.

The parts list alone is enough to make you want to take this car home, and there's simply no way you could duplicate it for anywhere near the asking price. Call us today!
