The 1986 Chevrolet El Camino coupe utility vehicle was part of the 1978 to 1987 fifth generation of El Caminos. The Chevy Chevelle had served as a template for the El Camino since 1964, but when the Chevelle ceased production in 1977, the El Camino retained the Malibu chassis and most of the Malibu's mechanical components. This 1986 El Camino has been discreetly modified and looks great.

Chevrolet’s clean design and sharp lines are epitomized in this example, and the bodywork and deep navy paint is only highlighted by the shaved door handles and clean, graphic-free presentation. It is simply sleek, clean, and highly attractive. The paint is impeccable, the chrome excellent, and the panel alignment and fit are impossible to fault. This truck has a great stance and just a little attitude with the factory hood scoop. Out back, the truck bed features a full custom bed liner that includes protection for the rear wheel wells and fits perfectly. This lovely custom El Camino rides on a beautiful set of chrome wire wheels that really highlight the paint finish and modern radial tires. Inside, there is a nice complement of options present, including power steering, power brakes, power windows, and power locks, with a key fob keyless entry system in place. Air-conditioning and a sweet JVC AM/FM/CD player complete the thoroughly modern dash, which is clean and very correct. The Sport wheel is mounted on a tilt column, with the convenience of cruise control at your fingertips. The plush upholstered split bench seats are in fine condition, and are immensely comfortable, allowing three passengers to ride in style. With clean door panels and very good carpets and accessory floor mats, this is an interior you’ll love spending time in.

It’s downright tidy under the hood, with the popular 305 cubic-inch V-8 in very correct condition. This El Camino is the perfect choice for any collector looking for an iconic and versatile ‘80s vehicle for their collection that has just a little extra attitude.
