El Camino SS
VERY CLEAN & STOCK SURVIVOR W/ RECENT REPAINT, V8/AUTO, COLD AC, WELL MAINTAINED
El Caminos, love 'em or hate 'em, are a unique piece of the American landscape. With decades of tradition behind it, this 1984 Chevrolet El Camino SS is an awesome and affordable special interest car and has a lot to offer the beginning collector or seasoned Elky fan. If you've been looking for one that hasn't been worked to death or modified beyond recognition, this might be your last chance.
El Caminos were trucks, and most of them were used like trucks and left for dead when they gave up. Fortunately, this handsome two-tone example has most likely been a cherished toy for most of its life, and thanks to life down south where the roads are warm and dry, it doesn't suffer from the dreaded tin worm, either. It was freshened not too long ago, including that glowing maroon paint that has an appropriate look without the goofy 1980s add-ons like graphics and stripe kits, and certainly no plastic ground effects. Fit and finish are above average, especially for a GM product of this era, so the guys who repainted the car were pretty careful about what they were doing. And speaking of preservation, just take a look at the bed, which looks like it hasn't carried anything more substantial than a few sacks of groceries, and all the chrome and stainless trim remains in first-rate shape.
The nicely finished interior is a fantastic reminder that this is no ordinary pickup truck. Just about everything inside is original, which will tell you all you need to know about how well-maintained this El Camino really is. The carpets and dash pad are quite nice, with few signs of wear and no notable UV damage, and the factory upholstery hasn't faded the way it tends to do on cars that sit outside. The matching door panels are equally sharp, with no UV damage or cracking like you so often see on cars from the '80s, and even the arm rests are in good shape. You can see where the El Camino shared DNA with the Malibu and Monte Carlo in the instrument panel, which covers only speed and fuel level, but this one also carries options like cold A/C, cruise control, a tilt wheel, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo radio.
El Caminos get V8 power, and this one is no exception with a 305 cubic inch Chevy V8. Smooth and torquey, it's a great companion in the El Camino and as a small block Chevy, you know it'll run this well practically forever. As you might expect, the engine bay is pretty tidy, with all the factory equipment fully intact and the engine uses OEM equipment throughout so it looks authentic. It appears to be entirely stock, which is pretty rare all by itself, and there's plenty of power on tap to make it fun to drive. There's no sign of neglect, no questionable upgrades, and it comes with maintenance records to show it's been loved. It's backed by a TH350 3-speed automatic transmission spinning a standard 10-bolt rear end, and if you're looking around underneath, you'll note that even the exhaust system appears to be stock, including a catalytic converter to make it legal just about anywhere. Handsome factory mag wheels finish the sporty look with 215/70/14 Toyo blackwall radials that are the right choice here.
So El Camino fans rejoice, this clean late-model has been preserved for your enjoyment and is ready to go today, all at an extremely reasonable price. Call now!
