We all love the El Camino because it's a distinct way to merge a comfy sedan and a versatile pickup. But this 1986 Chevrolet El Camino seems to do it all a bit better. Great colors, air-conditioned comfort, and V-8 power all come together to create one irresistible total package. Part muscle car, part pickup truck - its a do-it-all classic with undeniable charm.

The 1986 Chevrolet El Camino coupe utility vehicle was part of the 1978 to 1987 Fifth Generation series of El Caminos. The Chevy Chevelle had served as a template for the El Camino since 1964, but the Chevelle ceased production in 1977 and the El Camino retained the Malibu chassis and most of the Malibus mechanical components. The 1986 El Camino featured three engine choices, including the 5-liter V-8 in this nice example. A close look under the hood reveals a clean engine with no leaks and a great factory appearance.

You can't miss the fine red paint finish on this El Camino, and with crisp lines and very nice panel fit, its certainly a car that was well-tended from new. Every piece of trim and chrome appears to be original and is also in very nice shape. Everything fits and works well, indicating this car is a survivor, and has an honest look and feel any collector would be eager to own. The comfy split bench seat interior is in fine condition, with very good tan cloth upholstery and clean door panels. The dash is clean and crack-free, and theres plenty of legroom, adjustable head rests, and full carpeting throughout the comfortable cabin. The dashboard includes an AM/FM/CD player and factory air-conditioning.

Cars like this fine El Camino just beg the new owner to slide right in, turn the key, and rocket off into muscle car nirvana.
