1982 Chevrolet El Camino Conquista Additional Info:

Update! as of Friday, 12/1/17....when a buyer commits to purchasing this beauty at full asking price, we will pay $750 of the shipping charges from California to the buyer's destination
For sale is a 1982 El Camino Conquista.....this is a California high desert car that has absolutely no rust, has never been hit, has the original paint and was so clean that when we sanded the floors underneath between the frame rails in preparation for paint, we only had to use 120 grit sand paper by hand to prepare it for Zolatone paint...it had been driven only 86K miles in the 32 years before it came to us...before we changed our plans, we wanted to build a brand new 82 to use for our work with homeless veterans and other needy people who live on the streets..now someone else is going to own a fully mechanically restored elky with a brand new interior and all the options for a little more than some other types of projects sell for that need full restoration
The entire chassis and under body areas have all been highly detailed and painted.....all front suspension, power steering, front disc brake system components are all brand new...new close ratio steering box, new dropped front spindles, all new bushings, everything painted and replaced.
Under the hood, the 305 motor was rebuilt by the previous owner and has under 8K miles....the original 200 metric auto trans was working great but we replaced it with a new (rebuilt) 200 R to have the overdrive....the entire A/C system is brand new..all components, including the compressor, receiver dryer, lines, hoses...the new custom aluminum radiator is cooled by dual thermo controlled fans in shroud....new Master cylinder, alternator, carburetor, water pump, fuel pump, belts, hoses...motor and trans perform perfectly
The interior is all new and includes all new wiring to the Dakota Digital Gauges,,,new Am/Fm?CD 4 speaker sound system...new dash cap, carpeting, headliner and a beautifully stitched bench seat
The body is extremely straight, rust free, bondo free, barely a ding in any of the Conquista stainless and aluminum trim,,,not even a door ding from 30 + years of use... a brand new steel cowl induction hood...we have the nearly flawless original if you would prefer it
Rear end is totally rebuil, as well as new rear brakes, new windshield, new power window and power door lock motors
We built this vehicle to raise funds for our ministry for homeless veterans, orphans and disadvantaged children...there is nothing for the buyer to do but decide whether you want to drive it as is or paint it...we decided that with poor weather approaching, it made sense to sell it now, so we can purchase jackets, sweaters, sleeping bags, raincoats, backpacks and other items of need..that way the buyer can choose what color to paint, how much to spend or enjoy as is...we would have to spend that additional time and funds and then try to recover what we spent with a higher final price
If you have done a restoration this complete, you now how much it would cost in time, labor and parts to have all this work professionally done....this is being offered at a very reasonable price and is essentially a new 82 in terms of ride, handling and performance..please feel free to contact us at 818-7849820 with any questions...on a technicality this car will not pass smog in California or perhaps New York because one of the dash cluster lights does not allow the test to be completed...for all other states it is not an issue and it does not effect the performance or reliability of the vehicle in any way
This vehicle is being sold as is, where is with no type of warranty written or implied....nearly every single mechanical and electrical component was replaced with new or rebuilt parts by highly qualified professional mechanics who support our efforts to assist homeless veterans and other needy individuals..we are deeply grateful and thankful for their generosity and efforts....take a look at asking prices for other 78-87 El Caminos.....nearly every one is about the same/similar asking price range and most come without anywhere near as much restoration work completed..thanks for looking..no disappointments here
