VERY CLEAN ELKY, STRONG SBC V8, AUTO, DUALS, WELL-OPTIONED, READY TO CRUISE!!
It's official, 1980s El Caminos are worthy of collector status. This 1984 Chevrolet El Camino SS is one of those cool machines that everyone forgets about until they see it in person, and it remains one of the nicest truck/cars we've seen in a long time.
Thanks to handsome two-tone paint, this El Camino looks like a far more expensive car than it is. Burgundy and white are a classic '80s combination that works particularly well on the Elky's bodywork, enhancing the length of the body and highlighting the car's unique features. The SS model was more of a trim package than an actual hardware upgrade, but there's a faux hood scoop, some SS emblems on the doors, and perhaps the sport mirrors were part of the package too. Whatever the case, it looks great. The tape stripe that highlights the fender wells provides a nice break point for the two tone colors and the band of bright trim and tie-down rails surrounding the bed remains in excellent condition. A rubber bed mat was installed to help protect the paint underneath, so you can still put this one to work on weekends if that's your bent.
The handsome burgundy interior is a real treat, starting with the luxurious-looking bench seat with vinyl upholstery that does a pretty good impersonation of leather. The instrument panel should look familiar to anyone who drove a rear-wheel-drive GM product in the '80s, but it's in remarkably good condition following the build, with a seamless dash pad and bright gauge faces, and the SS models even got a tachometer. Matching burgundy carpets and smooth door panels are in great condition, and you'll 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 an aftermarket AM/FM/CD head unit in the dash and a set of cup holders on the transmission tunnel adds practicality. You'll 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 augmented with dual exhaust. Most of the engine bay looks fairly stock, so it hasn't been modified or abused and the result is a car that runs like new. The original air cleaner and tightly packed accessories make for an all-business engine bay, which uses mostly OEM components for reliability and easy service. An automatic transmission means this El Camino is an easy cruiser, and it spins a set of highway-friendly the original rear end. A true dual exhaust system uses Flowmaster mufflers for a great sound, and you'll note that the floors are extraordinarily clean, suggesting that this car has never lived in a rust belt climate. Flashy chrome IROC-style wheels measure 16 inches in diameter and wear 235/55/16 General performance radials.
Someone took great care of this El Camino SS, and the results are certainly worth the effort. One of the nicest ones we've ever featured, it's proof that you can't fake quality. Call today!
