1986 Chevrolet El Camino SS
We all love the El Camino because it's a distinct way to merge a comfy sedan and a versatile pickup. But this 1986 Chevrolet El Camino seems to do it all a bit better. Great colors, A/C comfort, and V8 power all come together to create one irresistible total package classic. The two-tone silver and black has a distinct but familiar feeling. And the red pinstripe within the silver should really get you mind going. This Chevy is borrowing some of the flair from the final Hurts/Olds! It's a great-looking total package that's part of a recent investment in a quality respray. More than just the paint, this one really does know how make a nice first impression. Freshly dipped chrome bumpers, bed rails, Super Sport decals, and later 15-inch Chevy alloys create a very striking total package. Plus, with features like the bed liner and trailer hitch w/wiring plug, this well-presented El Camino reminds you it's still a versatile pickup, too. Inside is a comfy burgundy velour interior. You can choose to seat three across or fold down the armrest for individual comfort for two. This is a well-done package with plenty of comfort built-in thanks to the right options from the factory. So you have power windows, power locks, cruise control, and an AM/FM/cassette stereo w/equalizer. Plus, the factory air conditioning has been converted to R134a to keep it blowing cold. You get a grippy sport steering wheel mounted on a tilt column, and this gives you a clear view of the full gauge panel, including large speedo and tach. Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. It's Chevy's 305 cubic-inch small-block V8 is correct for this car, and it's believed to be the original unit. We love this V8 for how robust it is and how eager it accepts performance upgrades. In fact, this already has a four-barrel carburetor, aluminum intake, and headers feeding the dual exhaust. More than just powerful, this El Camino is setup to be an easy all-day cruiser with features such as the recently rebuilt 2004R four-speed automatic transmission w/highway-friendly overdrive. Plus, there's power steering, front disc brakes, and the modern grip of Falken tires. And of course, the car-like suspension with sway bars front & rear is what really makes these so nice for anytime use. Complete with owner's manual and maintenance records, this is the distinct El Camino that's easy to drive and easy to love. So when it's also so obtainable, you know you need to hurry if you want to take it home.
