Silver Sleeper: 1980 Chevrolet El Camino – $7,000

Jan 2020 | Classifinds, Truckin Tuesday

On any given week, we come across a variety of El Caminos in all states of condition and all sorts of asking prices so its refreshing to find this 1980 example here on Craigslist in Spring Lake, New Jersey is still available for $7,000.  A quick check of the Hagerty Insurance Online Valuation Tool confirms the seller is asking only $100 more than the #4 “Fair” (Daily Driver) estimate of $6,900.  If you are serious about buying this El Camino, you can start the conversation by calling the private seller at (732) 703-3735.

We just have a hunch there’s a cool story to this El Camino that’s not revealed in the brief post.  Other than several decals placed on the dashboard, we like how original this El Camino appears and with only 105,000 original miles, that works out to less than 3,000 per year.  So as long as it appears regular maintenance has been performed and the underside looks as good as the topside, this might be an excellent to make your daily driver, although we have to admit we would be tempted to give this the LS Swap treatment.  Whichever path you choose, good luck with the purchase!

Here’s the seller’s very brief description:

“1980 Chevrolet El Camino V8 auto a/c runs and drives great car is all original 105000 miles
