The El Camino was produced by Chevrolet from 1959 – 1960 and again from 1964 – 1987. Although it is considered a pick-up it is different than a standard pick-up as it was adapted from a 2 door station wagon with an integrated cab and cargo bed into the body. The 5th generation was produced from 1978 -1987 and adopted a trimmer sharp edged style similar to the Malibu’s. Standard equipment was a Buick V6 and the 305 ci V8 was optional. This particular example was originally fitted with a 305 which was replaced with a new 350 crate engine in 2017 at 58,545 miles. The 350 engine is a long block with a 4 bolt main and has more than doubled the horsepower of the original 150 hp 305. When the engine was replaced it was also fitted with a new Quadrajet 4 bbl carb, a new intake manifold, a new alternator, a new starter and it was converted to an electronic ignition with a HEI distributor. At the same time the engine was replaced it was also fully restored which entailed some minor rust repairs which were all made with lead and metal. It was repainted in its original color of Light Blue Metallic which shows like new. The car was nicely optioned with A/C, cruise control, power steering, power brakes, tilt steering and an AM/FM stereo with 8 track player. It has 64,363 original miles and the dark blue interior is completely original and still shows like new which is amazing considering the vehicles age. This truck has been serviced regularly, everything works perfectly, the A/C was converted to R134 and it blows ice cold. We would appraise this car at $14,726.00 based on the current N.A.D.A. values. We are serious about finding it a new home and have priced it accordingly!
