For Sale: 1983 Chevrolet El Camino in Lutz, Florida

Vehicle Description

The distinctive paint theme is just the beginning of the custom work on this 1983 Chevrolet El Camino restomod. The full custom A/C interior, upgraded drivetrain, and powerful fuel-injected stroker V8 are all part of an awesome total package.

This El Camino has a ton of custom attitude while also still respecting its Chevy history. For example, the trim tag tells us this one was born a two-tone blue. Of course, the factory never gave you anything as wild as this. The dark blue looks almost black in some lights, but when you take it out in the sunlight it releases a nice metallic to show off added depth. And the lighter blue is a great harmonizing color against all that darkness. The two-tone is intertwined nicely using the El Camino's factory trim as a dividing line. Plus, you have the addition of the SS-style stripes as part of the performance attitude. More of the sporty feeling is in custom pieces like the cowl hood, polished 17-inch American Racing rims, tinted windows, and wide dual exhaust tips. And you'll spot thoughtfully coordinated details everywhere from the blue-dot tail lights to the bed's liner paint done in blue. Overall, there's a nice balance to this El Camino. It's a true custom cruiser with a terrific look from every angle. But this is also not one of those cars that will only get trailered to the World of Wheels. As you look through the full package, you'll see added power and comfort that's great for a true driver. So you want the kind of condition that looks awesome out where you're not going to be afraid to drive it, and at the same time, looks awesome cruising all-day Sunday.

The blue/purple continues inside. And while this is quite bold, you'll also appreciate the blend of performance and comfort. The seat is now recovered with a newer cloth with Chevy bowtie stitched on. You can choose to seat three across or fold down the armrest for individual comfort for two. The tweed cloth here coordinates with the door panels, dash, center console, and headliner for a uniform feeling that is pure custom car cool. And the dark blue carpeting with flame-kissed floor mats shows an extra degree of thoughtfulness in this Chevy. There are nice luxury items like the AM/FM digital tuner w/cassette and cold-blowing air conditioning. Plus, this is an upgraded driver with the chrome sports steering wheel on a tilt column, B&M floor shifter, Bosch tach mounted on the column, and auxiliary gauge trio. It's a reminder that there's something special under the hood even before you turn the key and hear it roar.

The clean inner fenders of the engine bay funnel your attention to the polished components of the powerful heart in the middle. The consignor claims this is a 383 stroker V8 motor, and this small block is certainly made for power. It has been built with aluminum heads, an Edelbrock Performer high rise intake, and powder-coated headers. It's then topped with a FiTech electronic fuel injection system for added power and consistency. You'll also spot good supporting components, like March serpentine belt system, MSD ignition, and aluminum radiator with dual electric fans. This is a powerful package, and so you have upgrades like the stout TH400 three-speed automatic transmission and a Perfect Launch rear diff cover. There's also power steering, power brakes w/discs up front, and modern sport tires.

Complete with maintenance records, this is a distinct and speedy classic that's ready to turn heads right now. So don't miss out on one of the best deals on a custom classic. Call today!!!
