This 1982 Chevrolet El Camino Conquista is attractive because the
full package gives you great colors, a loaded A/C interior, and
number-matching V8 power. But what makes it truly unique is it's an
exceptionally original one-owner example that has been treated with
the kind of care to make sure this feels like a true classic.
This is a one-owner car that was sold new less than two hours from
our showroom. It has been one of those well-kept cars where even
the maintenance file helps show that the low odometer likely
reflects the full actual mileage. The Conquista trim level was a
bit fancier, and this one continues to show that off well with its
handsome two-tone paint. The Blue and Antique White is not only
factory correct, but on this one-owner El Camino, it also appears
mostly factory. A nice metallic to the blue and a glossy finish to
the white makes this impressive even before you mention
originality. Brightwork is also essential on this Chevy. After all,
the full trim package is used as a clean dividing line for the
two-tone, and you'll even notice how the tail lights are set into
the rear chrome bumper. Plus, this Conquista shows off some added
cruiser style with details like the hood ornament, bed rails, and
factory wire wheel covers. The result is the kind of classic that
commands attention, which makes it quite easy to tell its unique
The comfortable dark blue velour interior has rich tones that
coordinate nicely with the exterior. The bench can seat three, and
there's a fold-down armrest when you want individual comfort. The
El Camino may have a pickup bed, but we all love this legend for
its sedan interior. And the Conquista trim makes sure this is both
comfy and premium. It includes air conditioning, power windows, the
Delco AM/FM radio, cruise control, and a walnut-like trim package.
It makes for a well-preserved and easy-cruising time capsule.
Under the hood is exactly what you want to see. It's the
numbers-matching 305 cubic-inch V8. So you have a hardy and
original motor in a well-maintained classic. The car-based
suspension gives the El Camino a nice ride, and that combines with
the power steering, front disc brakes, and three-speed automatic
transmission to create a fantastic all-day cruiser.
The sale comes with the factory build sheet, original dealer
invoice, and maintenance records. It's all there to help show just
how distinct and preserved this one-owner El Camino is. Call
