GREAT ENTRY-LEVEL MODERN CLASSIC, 305 V8, 200R4, PWR FRNT DISCS, PWR STEER A/C!!
El Caminos are a unique piece of the American landscape. With decades of tradition behind it, this 1984 Chevrolet El Camino is an awesome and affordable special interest car and has a lot to offer the beginning collector or long-time Elky fan. If you've been looking for one that hasn't been worked to death or modified beyond recognition, this is a great choice with V8 power and a familiar look.
El Caminos were trucks, and most of them were used like trucks and left for dead when they gave up. Fortunately, this nicely preserved example has most likely been a civilian vehicle 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 remains mostly original, including light blue paint that has an appropriate look without the goofy 1980s add-ons like graphics and stripe kits. Fit and finish are above average, especially for a GM product of this era, so the guys who have been maintaining this car were pretty careful about what they were doing. And speaking of preservation, just take a look at the bed, which has a nicely done spray-in bedliner and a set of bed rails just in case you really want to haul something. Better yet, all the chrome and stainless trim remains in good shape, so it's ready to enjoy immediately.
The plush interior is a reminder that this is no ordinary pickup truck. Since it's related to the Monte Carlo, it's luxurious instead of plain and it's all quite nice, with few signs of wear and no notable damage to the seating surfaces. The blue fabric bench offers enough room for three, but it's really best with two on board. The door panels are pretty nice, too, with no cracking like you so often see on cars from the '80s, although the arm rests are obviously replacements. You can see where the El Camino shared DNA with the Malibu and Monte Carlo in the dash, which covers only speed and fuel level, but this one also carries options like A/C and an AM/FM stereo radio in the dash.
The 305 cubic inch V8 was optional in 1984 but most El Camino buyers chose it for obvious reasons. 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 most of the factory equipment intact save for the chrome air cleaner up top. There's no sign of neglect, no questionable upgrades, yet plenty of evidence of expert maintenance and it runs well enough to drive just about anywhere with confidence. It's backed by a 2004R 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission spinning a standard 10-bolt rear end, and if you're looking around underneath, you'll note the only deviation from stock is a fresh exhaust system with a mellow-sounding muffler and a set of air shocks. Handsome factory wheels with trim rings finish the sporty look with period-appropriate 14-inch whitewall radials.
So El Camino fans rejoice, this clean late-model has been preserved for your enjoyment and is ready to go today, all at a very reasonable price. Call now!
