THE EL CAMINO

Although Harley Earle had envisioned a car/truck in the early 1950s, Ford was first to release their concept, the Ranchero of 1957. Chevrolets offering, the El Camino, came a couple of years later to the highest acclaim, but only lasted two model years.

Reappearing in 1964, the Chevelle based El Camino, went through similar style updates through the model years. With the Malibu model replacing the Chevelle in the downsizing trend in the late 1970s, the El Camino would follow suit. The model would be updated over the following years, eventually receiving a facelift in 1982 with a crosshatch grill bordered by four rectangular headlamps.

THE MOTORCAR OFFERED

A point of contention within the El Camino faithful, Chevrolet had planned on discontinuing the model at the 1986 model year, but some leftovers were rebadged as 1987s leading to some ambiguity as to what the final year should be. Regardless, the El Camino presented here is titled as a 1986, making it one of those very last cars to have been produced. Originally sold in Tulsa, Oklahoma, the Chevy was used as intended for much of its life accumulating a fair number of miles over time. Despite this, the car presented in wonderful condition and serves as a fine example to a nameplate which spanned decades of production. Under the hood is a 305ci V8 engine providing the vehicle with more than enough grunt to keep up with modern traffic. Its tan interior has been remarkably well taken care of and shows with no major signs of degradation.

Offering the best of both worlds, the El Camino is a vehicle combines the practicality of a pickup with the fine road manners of a sedan. A fine example such as this will surely be a dependable form of transportation for its next owner.
