Chevrolet produced the half-car, half-truck El Camino Ute in five generations between 1959 and 1987. While Chevrolet based the first generation on its full-size Brookwoods two-door wagon chassis, the next three iterations from ’64 through ’77 relied on the mid-size Chevelle wagon.  Chevrolet introduced a new, downsized El Camino in 1978, adopting the new, more sharp-edged Malibu styling, While the new El Camino shared front-end sheet metal, doors, tailgate, and rear bumper with the Malibu station wagon, the chassis was a unique design shared with no other Chevrolet.

In 1982, Chevrolet restyled the El Camino’s front end with a new crosshatch grill and quad square headlights. Gasoline-engine choices were unchanged, except Chevrolet’s 229-cubic-inch (3.8-liter) V6 was now standard in California-bound cars, replacing Buick’s 231-cubic-inch V6.In 1983, the 4.4-liter V8 was gone, leaving the 5.0-liter version as the only optional gas V8. The standard engine was again Chevrolet’s 3.8-liter V6 with 110 hp.

The seller of this 1983 El Camino also happens to be the original owner, who reports their El Camino features an older repaint, its original rebuilt automatic transmission, and a four-barrel-topped 305 cubic inch V8.  This 1983 El Camino also features factory air conditioning.
