We actually purchased two cars from the previous owner of this El Camino. He was a true enthusiast with a small collection and we we able to obtain this 1983 fully restored El Camino and an excellent 1975 Trans Am. We were very tempted to keep this awesome El Camino as a shop car to do light hauling and pick ups with, but after several months debating we came to the conclusion that this EL Camino was just too nice to put normal wear and tear on it so its now available for sale.

As a side note, this El Camino is not a dealer auction vehicle.  We hand pick each car after careful inspection.  Our classics come from owners who expect their cars to go to someone that will give the vehicle the same care and attention as they did.  We invite and encourage you to examine the car in person or have the car inspected.  Please take the time to scrutinize each picture.  We photograph each vehicle to the greatest extent so you can feel confident about your purchase.  If you have a question about the El Camino, just give us a call.

model description

 

 

A new, trimmer El Camino was unveiled in 1978, adopting the new, more sharp-edged Malibu styling, and a one-inch longer wheelbase of 117 in (2,972 mm). The front end sheet metal was shared with the Malibu, the doors with the Monte Carlo, and the rear tailgate and bumper was shared with the Malibu station wagon. For the first time, though, the El Camino had a unique chassis - it was shared with no other Chevrolet. The front end featured a new single rectangular headlight design. The base engine was a 200-cubic-inch (3.3-liter) V6 that developed 95 horsepower (71 kW), except in California where, to meet emissions standards, the 231-cubic-inch Buick engine was the base engine . Two upgrades could be ordered: a 305-cubic-inch V8 with 145 horsepower (108 kW), or a 350-cubic-inch V8 with 170 horsepower (130 kW) that was only available in El Caminos and Malibu station wagons. It was not available on Malibu passenger cars. Among GM makes, at least, the era of bigness was fading into history, overtaken by a new age of efficiency and economy.

In 1983, the 4.4-liter V8 was gone, leaving the 5.0-liter version as the only optional gas V8. The standard engine was again Chevy's 3.8-liter V6 with 110 horsepower (82 kW), though California cars, once again, got a Buick V6 with similar specifications. Continuing on the options list was the 5.7-liter V8 Diesel with 105 hp (78 kW). The sister Malibu sedan and wagon were discontinued after the 1983 model year.

Exterior

The Pearl White exterior is in excellent restored condition. As one can see in the photos, the paint has a beautiful gloss, deep shine, and smooth finish. This El Camino was treated to a professional paint job with correct emblems applied within the last few years. This El Camino is very strait with no visible rust and has excellent lines. The finished product looks excellent in the photos and video, but even better in person especially in the sunshine. Both bumpers are in excellent shape and shine beautifully. The chrome trim all around this El Camino is in terrific shape and really makes the pearl in the white exterior pop. We have included may photos of the underside of the car as well as specific photos of the areas most prone to rust to show how solid this El Camino is. There are no major imperfections that have been intentionally excluded from the photos. The white letter tires are like new and the weld wheels are in mint shape with no curb rash and have amazing shine. This El Camino has newer window sweeps and door seals. The bed has a professionally sprayed in bedliner that not only looks excellent but serves a great purpose to protect this El Camino from damage due to hauling and weather.

The El Camino looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.

Please note that ALL the glass on this car is date coded and original as each piece predates the car's body build date of the second week of April 1983 (04B). Original glass is a good indication that this car has had no major accident history and never sustained significant damage.

 

Interior

The blue Conquista interior of the El Camino looks truly splendid. The seats are in like new condition with no tears, split seams, or signs of wear in any way. The carpet is also "like new" with no stains, rips, or holes. The dash is in great condition with no cracks, fading, warping or sun damage. The door panels are in excellent condition with no cracks or splits, and both door pulls are solid and in tact. The headliner is in great condition and not sagging at all. The original stereo still remains in the dash and still sounds good and most importantly, the original dash was not cut or modified for a modern stereo. All of the interior plastics are in very nice shape, are not chalky, and have a nice factory texture and grain pattern. The original spare tire and jack are in the factory position behind the passenger seat. This car has not been smoked in; there is no aroma of cigarettes what so ever. Older El Camino interiors are not known to wear well and the excellent condition of this interior is a testament to the excellent care this car has received.

The interior looks just as good in person as it does in the photos.


Mechanical

This El Camino is in great mechanical condition and all of the accessories work; even the a/c blows cold. As stated above we have driven this car on several errands with no issues in any way and it has always performed flawlessly. This car is an exceptional driver that feels great on the road and at highway speeds. There is no smoke when starting or driving the car. It starts right away every time, idles well, and runs great. The car shifts well. The steering feels very tight and the car rides solid with no rattles. The brakes are responsive, do not pull to one side or the other, and stop very well. This El Camino has newer exhaust and has a nice healthy exhaust tone for an early 80's El Camino. This El Camino has been treated to some tasteful performance upgrades like; a newer Edelbrock carb., a newer Edelbrock aluminum intake, ceramic coated headers, newer HEI distributor, performance spark plug wires, newer performance exhaust, etc. There is a small sound of what sounds like an exhaust leak on the passenger side, which is very common on cars with headers. Also, the engine is clean and nicely detailed as one can see from the photos. The horn works as do all the exterior lights, gauges, wipers, and blower for the heater and a/c. The speedometer, odometer, oil pressure, fuel, and battery gauges all work as they should; even the clock works as one can observe in the video. Amazingly, the cruise control on this car still works. The AC system is fully intact and blows cold air. This El Camino has good power and handles very well. Not enough can be said as to how much of a pleasure it is to drive this car.


Overall Condition

 

Overall, this 1983 El Camino is in terrific restored condition. It is a great value and we have it priced to sell. There is no way anyone could duplicate or restore a car to the standard of this El Camino for anywhere near our asking price. This El Camino turns heads and gets tons of attention wherever it goes. Not only is this El Camino in excellent show worthy condition it is also a very practical and a fictional classic vehicle that can be used for a multitude of purposes. The value of these 1980's El Camino's has climbing in recent years and they continue to increase. They are all solid investments for a collector. Cars like this are the Barrett Jackson and Mecum stars of the future. One could easily enjoy this vehicle for several years and sell it for more than the purchase price with minimal effort.
