1982 Chevrolet El Camino
The El Camino was a direct challenge to Ford's Ranchero, a utility
coupe dominating a previously untapped market. GM flirted with
coupe-type trucks such as the Chevrolet Cameo Carrier and the GMC
Suburban Carrier in 1955, but they went all-in with the El Camino
for the 1959 model year. The El Camino was built on a modified
Brookwood station wagon platform. The first generation didn't last
long. It could have been the new flamboyant wings of full-sized
Chevys or perhaps the Ranchero's hefty stake in the market, but
after just 2 years and 36,409 El Caminos produced, Chevy dropped
the ax on the model. After doing so, GM decided to bring it back in
1964 as version 2 which lasted until 1967.
Offering up this consignment, a 1982 Chevrolet El Camino with gobs
of recent maintenance and replacement work on the drivetrain, some
interior refresh workings she's all buttoned up and ready to move
off our showroom and into your garage where you can ohhhh and ahhhh
anytime you want and take it out so others can do the same.
Two tone square and rectangle design steel bathed in charcoal gray
and silver with just a hint of red pin striping on the beltline are
seen throughout on this car. Overall quality of paint is very good
with a few nicks and scratches but remaining nicely preserved. Nice
stainless trimmings run around the wheel wells and throughout the
center of the car providing the border between the light and dark
grays (silver). The roofline is also silver, and this moves to the
bed of the "car" where it has a black vinyl flip up and down
covering. Some chromed tie down horizontal posts are on top off the
bedsides, and under the framed flip up vinyl cover is a rubber
lined bed, which is all clean and green. In back taillights are
within the bumper which retains its luster. 14-inch rally wheels in
black and highlighted by some bare machined metal edging, are
wrapped by 225/70R14 radials with raised white lettering.
Virtually a near total redux with new weather seals for the doors,
new door panels now showing in beautiful smooth dark gray with new
molded door pulls in just a shade of darker vinyl, and a peppering
of chromed handles and toggles. Inside more gray for the tuck and
roll vinyl seats in low back bucket form compete with a central
mounted fold down armrest. The dash is wood burl applique within a
field of dark gray vinyl molded square and rectangle surrounds. All
clean for the dash and its add ons like the AM/FM/Cassette and
climate controls. New gray carpeting now floods the floors and a
new headliner and visors have been recently installed.
Under the hood is a detailed and clean 305ci V8 that is original to
this vehicle. It is topped with a single 4-barrel carburetor and on
back is a TH350 3 speed automatic transmission. The axle is a
10-bolt designation. Some surface rust and slight patina are on
this engine and bay but a list a mile long for recent work
performed on the engine and its components is available for your
A light coating of surface rust is seen on the frame and some of
the usual suspension suspects, but unremarkable and structurally
sound. Floor Pans are clear of any rust or repairs as are rockers.
Independent coil springs for the front and a 4-link with more coil
springs are the ride providers and for the braking power disc
brakes for the front, and power drums for the rear. A dual exhaust
is installed and has surface rust on the piping.
A quick starter and a good performer with the 4bbl carburetor
pushing the 305 cubes to pump out some serious acceleration.
Braking is solid as is shifting for the automatic trans. Handling
was very good and again a list of recent maintenance performed
includes a fair amount of work done on this undercarriage available
for you to see upon request.
A nice early 80's El Camino with plenty of recent mechanical
maintenance work performed, nice paint, and a new bed cover
installed. Virtually a new interior will have you on the edge of
the should I go now, or should I show now, fence!
