For Sale: 1981 Chevrolet El Camino in Lutz, Florida

$14,995  

Vehicle Description

The El Camino has an interesting social status that gives it plenty of personality. After all, it's hard not to love a vehicle that's both a comfy sedan and a versatile pickup. This 1981 Chevrolet El Camino delivers this iconic idea while giving you the right features, like an A/C interior, a small block under the hood, and a cool/classic style including pinstriping.

The Desert Sand paint has a true classic style to it that makes this one instantly look vintage. But what really sets it apart is the pinstriping. It's a complete package that's particularly attractive for offering extra elements, like the fade on the door panels and artful tailgate design. And this pinstriping also has other purposes, including highlighting the quality of the sheetmetal. It even coordinates nicely with the brown folding tonneau cover. Because this has a practical truck bed, there are polished bed rails and a durable mat to carry any of the big loads on the weekends. We really like the design of these final generation El Caminos because they incorporate some great classic cruiser elements. For example, the roof line almost mimics the classic pre-war business coupes, and the license plate looks like it was frenched into the tailgate. Plus, this has nice upgrades like the bright dual exhaust tips and iconic polished Cragar SS wheels.

The interior has a clean, comfortable and well-preserved feeling. But as you dig a little deeper, you'll realize that there have been a bunch of the right investments. The seat may have a stock style, but it feels freshly reupholstered with a comfy velour insert. The steering wheel is the classic dual-spoke unit that has a clear view to the long speedometer. It gives this a great cruiser feeling, and that's heightened further by the addition of cruise control. The stereo has been upgraded to an AM/FM/CD unit with a USB input, and the factory air conditioning has newer components and now blowing cold with modern R134a refrigerant.

Under the hood is an interesting small block. The 267 cubic-inch V8 was not in production for very long, and so having the numbers-matching unit in this El Camino just adds to this classic's story. It runs well, which helps keep this a classic you'll love driving. That's why it also has great anytime features, like a three-speed automatic transmission, power steering, power brakes, and front discs.

Complete with owner's manual, this is a distinct, comfortable, and all-around desirable classic...especially at this value price. So don't miss this deal, call today!
