At first glance, the 1986 El Camino appeared as a blend of two worlds. Its front end resembled a classic Chevrolet sedan with a prominent chrome grille and quad rectangular headlights. However, as you moved towards the rear, it seamlessly transformed into a compact pickup truck bed. This distinctive design made the El Camino stand out on the road, and it was often referred to as a “coupe utility” due to its dual-purpose nature.
Under the hood, the 1986 El Camino offered a range of engine options to cater to different preferences and needs. The base engine was a 4.3-liter V6 that produced 110 horsepower, which provided adequate performance for everyday driving.
Inside the cabin, the 1986 El Camino offered a comfortable and well-appointed interior, especially when compared to other trucks of the era. The dashboard featured a clean and straightforward design with a horizontal instrument panel that housed a set of clear and easily readable gauges. The seating was comfortable and spacious, accommodating up to three passengers in the front with a bench seat. The El Camino also offered a generous amount of storage space behind the front seats, perfect for securing tools or personal belongings.
One notable feature of the 1986 El Camino was its handling and ride quality. Its car-like chassis and suspension provided a smooth and comfortable ride, making it suitable for long highway drives or daily commuting. The power steering and well-tuned suspension contributed to precise handling and responsive steering, making it surprisingly agile for a vehicle with a pickup bed.
As for utility, the El Camino’s bed had a decent payload capacity, featuring a sturdy cargo tie-down system to secure loads effectively. This made it a practical choice for individuals needing a vehicle that could double as a workhorse during the week and a comfortable weekend cruiser.
Overall, the 1986 Chevrolet El Camino represented the culmination of a unique automotive concept. It offered the best of both worlds, combining a car’s comfort and style with a pickup truck’s practicality and versatility. Its distinctive design, choice of engines, and comfortable interior made it a popular choice among buyers looking for a vehicle that could do it all. Today, the 1986 El Camino is considered a classic and has a dedicated following among enthusiasts who appreciate its blend of style and utility.
The original owner reports that they have always kept the maintenance up to date on their El Camino and that they stored it during the Wisconsin Winters to prevent it from receiving any road salt exposure.
