1985 Chevrolet El Camino Super Sport Additional Info:

PLEASE READ DESCRIPTION BELOW THOUROUGHLY!! I will do my best to describe the car in as much detail as possible, detailing what works and what doesn’t. This is a 32-year-old vehicle and is a driver, not a show car. It’s by no means perfect, but it is a good car that can be driven regular and be a driving project. Basically it’s a relatively sound car mechanically, with some cosmetic issues.


  • 1985 El Camino SS (true SS with Z15 package, as verified by a copy of the dealer invoice (included; costs $50 from GM heritage center)

  • Original CA car from S&J Chevrolet in Cerritos, only recently relocated to TX


  • 305 V8 with 4 bbl carb

  • 3 speed automatic

  • 45K on odometer; Carfax looks like it’s rolled over, so assume 145K

  • Car runs good. It has served as a weekend driver and even daily driver for some periods of time without any major issues. Never failed to start or stalled on me in the 3 yrs or so I’ve owned it.

  • New working A/C. All A/C components replaced (compressor, condenser, etc) and switched to R134A.

  • All accessories work: Power windows, power door locks, wipers, stereo

    • Window washer doesn’t work

  • Brakes and steering function properly

  • Not perfect though

    • Idle seems high

    • Occasionally, check engine light comes on when starting if its sat for a few days. Goes off after about 5 minutes

    • Rarely, it runs after shutting off for about 10 seconds

    • Slight oil leak, appears to be from main seal.


  • Restored at some point in the past

    • Newer black carpet

    • Reupholstered seats

    • Door panels and dash recovered in black vinyl

    • Newer headliner

    • Newer plastic trim in black

  • I’ve added:

    • New seat belts

    • New door sills

    • New window and door lock switches

    • Monte Carlo SS steering wheel and dash trim

  • Gauges work

    • Except temp gauge

    • Has aftermarket temp gauge below dash

  • Dash lights work, replaced with LED bulbs

  • Interior light works, replaced with LED bulb

  • Working aftermarket stereo; detachable face

  • New window sweeps and weatherstipping.

  • New El Camino floor mats (pictured) will be included $150 from OPGI

  • Issues to be aware of:

    • Horn, but has aftermarket wireless horn

    • Passenger door vinyl pulling away from door panel

    • Windows are loose and don’t seat right in the channel all the time. Need to pull off the door panel and adjust.

    • Tear on side of driver’s seat

    • Defroster button on dash is not connected. El Camino does not have a rear window defroster.

    • Purple-ish tint on quarter windows is peeling


  • This is where the most issues are. There are LOTS of small dents, dings, scratches and peeling paint. The car had a cheap repaint at some point in its life. There is what appears to be a small crack in the header panel. The headlight bezels and grille have peeling paint.

  • Good stuff:

    • No rust

    • All glass is good

    • Newer BFG Radial T/A’s (only about 500 miles)

    • Vintage Chevy Rally Wheels with new trim rings and center caps

    • Newer rear bumper and new tail light housings

    • New OEM front spoiler (unpainted)

    • Rare snap on tonneau cover

    • All lights work, except one back-up light, and I think one side marker in the back.
