There’s a ton of cash wrapped up in this late Elky, and it shows everywhere you look.

Final year El Camino in great colors. Fresh 355 cubic inch crate motor, 700R4 automatic, cold A/C, buckets, gauges, and much more. Numerous upgrades throughout, highly detailed top and bottom. The nicest El Camino we’ve ever seen!

There’s a ton of cash wrapped up in this late Elky, and it shows everywhere you look. The burgundy paint is far shinier than anything GM could muster in 1987, and it’s laid down over super straight bodywork that suggests this truck/car has never been bent or rusty. A few SS bits, like the chin spoiler and rocker panel extensions, give it a sleeker look, and there’s a billet grille up front just to smooth things out a bit. We’re pleased they skipped the usual cowl induction hood, sticking with the stock steel unit, and the elegant two-tone paint combination works well, making this El Camino look both sporting and professional. The stripes are obviously not stock, nor is the hard-shell tonneau out back that was painted to match, but it gives you an idea of how the factory might have done it. There’s also excellent chrome and stainless trim, correct emblems, and even twin tailpipes peeking out from under the rear bumper, a look that you just didn’t get in 1987.

The burgundy interior features GM’s usual mouse fur upholstery, but twin bucket seats and a console are a welcome upgrade in the working-class El Camino. In fact, this car is loaded up with virtually every option you could get, including ice cold A/C, power windows and locks, a tilt steering column, and a full gauge package that includes a tach. The steering wheel is a wood-rimmed billet aluminum piece that adds a little upscale elegance to the interior and matches the simulated woodgraining on the dash pretty well. There’s also an upgraded AM/FM/CD stereo head unit in the dash and a B&M shifter to manage the 700R4 4-speed automatic overdrive transmission underneath. The original upholstery and door panels are in great condition, more evidence of this car’s excellent care over the years. And with a full bed cover under the tonneau, you can think of the cargo bay as the world’s biggest weatherproof trunk, which locks securely with separate keys.

The original 307 is gone, replaced by a thumping 355 cubic inch crate motor from Blueprint Engines. Installed in 2015 at a cost of over $13,000, it cranks out a reported 420 horsepower, enough to make the El Camino faster than a lot of Camaros of the era. Remarkably, it’s docile and easy to live with, starting easily and idling smoothly without a lot of fuss. It’s also beautifully detailed with lots of chrome and polished aluminum to really add a lot of eye appeal when you pop the hood. There’s a Holley 4-barrel carburetor under the air cleaner, an HEI ignition system, and a set of aluminum heads to shave some weight. You’ll also see that a lot of the supporting equipment is new, too, including the radiator, accessory drive and accessories, A/C hardware, and the belts and hoses. There’s more new stuff underneath, too, including custom tubular lower A-arms, rebuilt power disc brakes, and a great-sounding dual exhaust system with X-pipe and Magnaflow mufflers. Also note how clean the floors are, the new lines and hoses, and the factory 10-bolt with what we believe to be easy-cruising 3.08 gears inside. Classic SS wheels look right on the late model El Camino and carry 225/70/15 BFGoodrich T/A radials all around.

Documentation includes a ton of receipts for a lot of the work that has been done.

It’s taken a while, but these under-appreciated utility vehicles are suddenly very hot on the market. With sensible upgrades, lots of luxury, and plenty of practicality, an El Camino makes a lot of sense for the guy who can only have one hobby car. This one has all the expensive work already done, so all you need to do is get in and enjoy. Call today!
