This 1987 Chevrolet El Camino was built near the end of production for Chevy's venerable truck/car. With the same great utility, this one also offers a cool paint job, updated interior, and plenty of juice from the small block V8. It's one of those cars where all the hard work is already done, and you can either enjoy it as-is or take it up a notch and really knock people out.We'll admit that the bright yellow over white paint scheme probably wasn't a factory option, but it certainly looks slick on this late Elky. It's bright, make no mistake, but the details will make the extra looks worthwhile. Note the ghost flames licking across the nose, the black stripe that highlights the fender line and separates the two colors, and the 'El Camino SS' emblems on the doors. The paint is a few years old and this was no trailer queen, but if you want an affordable and unique cruiser that will get plenty of "thumbs up" gestures on the road, this is a great choice. The chrome and trim is probably original, but it was removed for paint and still shines up well and we have to admit we like the clean look of these late El Caminos. And if you do care to use it for hauling, you'll be thrilled to see the freshly finished bed, which includes one of the nicest spray-in bedliner jobs we've ever seen. This car is just a new headlight away from rock star.The interior holds up its end of the bargain, too, complements of a pair of high-back leather buckets borrowed from a late-model. They're a neat fit in the El Camino's cabin, but it's definitely a two-seater now. There's a bit of wear on the outer bolsters, which isn't surprising, but none of it detracts from the impact those chairs make. The factory center console makes it feel sporty and a custom leather-wrapped LaCarrera steering wheel only adds to the feeling. Factory gauges include a tach and auxiliary gauges, which is what you'd expect in an SS, and there are a lot of options, including A/C, an AM/FM/cassette stereo, power windows, and a tilt steering column. The two-tone dash and door panels help with the monochromatic look and it carries a set of matching floor mats to keep things looking neat.The 305 cubic inch V8 under the hood has plenty of power to make this El Camino a lot of fun to drive. It starts quickly and idles smoothly, and there's enough torque to make it feel punchy around town. There are a few modest upgrades, but nothing to disrupt the bulletproof reliability for which these engines have become famous. An aftermarket open-element air cleaner probably adds a few horsepower, and if you live where it matters, you'll be pleased to find a new catalytic converter and exhaust system underneath. The TH200-4R 4 speed w/ OD automatic transmission shifts cleanly and doesn't hesitate to drop down a gear when you need it, and the 10-bolt rear end has easy-cruising highway gears that even make this car pretty good with gas mileage (well, for a V8 truck, anyway). The undercarriage is shockingly clean, proving that this car has lived in the desert all its life and those 18-inch aluminum wheels and 225/45/18 Michelin tires add the perfect stance.We'll admit that the El Camino isn't everyone's car, but their enduring popularity means that those who do love them are quite passionate indeed. With a little TLC, this could be an incredible cruiser and at this price, what do you have to lose? Call today!
