For Sale: 1981 Chevrolet El Camino in O'Fallon, Illinois

Vehicle Description

Gateway Classic Cars of San Antonio/Austin is pleased to present this 1981 Chevrolet El Camino. Chevrolet synched to the market when it responded to Ford's Ranchero with the El Camino. While Ford focused more on utility, Chevy went after style AND utility. Over 25 model years and 5 generations, Chevy's half truck, half car has proven to be a classic since its debut in 1959. This El Camino before you expresses that philosophy to a tee. Classy Malibu styling and comfort in front, with the utility of a mid-size truck out back. When the El Camino first came into the market it was built on the Chevrolet X-frame, it shared the same engine options and styling as the other big Chevy cars at the time like the Impala and Biscayne. This two-tone 1981 Chevrolet El Camino is a clean example of an affordable classic. The silver and blue combination outside flows nicely inside with blue vinyl bench seat along with door panels, dash, carpet and headliner. The 305-cubic-inch V-8 is presented well with chrome valve covers and mated to a smooth shifting three-speed automatic transmission with a lock-up torque converter to aid highway mileage. Optional 14 steel wheels have been painted to match and wear chrome hubcaps and stainless beauty rings and are fitted with a set of Classic Radial whitewall tires. A two-spoke steering wheel sits in front of a horizontal 85mph speedometer and fuel gauge. Mounted under the new BOSS radio head unit and working climate controls is aftermarket gauges that include battery voltage, water temperature and oil pressure.
