This Chevrolet Barn Find Had Just One Owner, Is All Original

El Camino wasn’t necessarily Chevrolet’s most popular model during the ‘80s, and living proof are the production figures that dropped substantially towards the end of the fifth generation.

While Chevrolet built over 58,000 units in 1979, the output was gradually lowered, eventually reaching only 21,508 units in 1986.

In 1984, the carmaker produced nearly 23,000 El Caminos, of which a part came with the SS conversion that brought a bunch of improvements over the standard model.

Needless to say, the El Camino SS didn’t sell in huge numbers either, so finding one that still looks good after all these years is a difficult mission.

But someone on Craigslist says they do own such an El Camino. The car, which had just one owner, is all original and unmolested, and it features a white and grey exterior with a grey interior. However, worth knowing is that whoever buys it should fully repaint the car and fix a number of scratches and dents here and there.

Worth knowing is that there’s no rust on this El Camino, and the seller says the bed looks almost like new. It runs and drives very well and has some 62,000 miles (99,799 km) on the clock. The car is powered by a 305 ci (5.0-liter) V8 engine paired to a 3-speed automatic transmission.

Other equipment available on the car includes the factory AM/FM stereo with cassette support, roll-up windows, and a 60/40 bench with an integrated armrest. Everything is original and hasn’t been touched during all these years, the owner guarantees.

As for the price, this El Camino comes pretty cheap, as it’s available for just $6,995. It even includes the original bill of sale, so it’s a rare find that might be worth buying for those looking for a model to restore. The car is parked close to Tulsa if you want to check it out live.
