I'm offering a 1985 ground up restored El Camino. It was not born as an SS, but the builder upgraded the suspension to SS specs and added badges and hood to give it the look. It has a 502 engine, but not the 502 that immediately comes to mind. The builder is a Cadillac engine fan and took a 472 and bored and stroked it to 502. The horsepower would be north of 400 and I'm sure the torque specs are north of 500. It has a lot of get up and go! The transmission is a built 400. Everything is fresh in the drivetrain. It has Foose wheels on it. The interior is all done in leather including the matching wrap on the steering wheel. The seats are extremely comfortable. It is equipped with factory air and it has a new compressor and is converted to R134a freon. It has a nice stereo unit with a USB plug on the side of the radio bump out. It has power steering and brakes. The brakes are disc on the front and drum on the rear.
The builder started with a rust free car that only had two small dings which he had removed with paintless method. It has a high end paint job and he filled all of the spot welds in the bed so the bed is as flawless as the finish on the rest of the car. He then had the hood painted with the proper SS stripe. The paint shows beautifully with no blemishes. The car has 66,000 miles from new and approximately 3,000 since the total restoration.
I had an 86 from new and drove it for about 5 years. I loved the feel of the inside of the cab. The way the back window curves in behind you is a unique feeling. I spotted this one at a car show when we were traveling in our motorhome and had to have it. It drives down the road every bit as comfortably as my 86 did when new. I have too many toys, so something has to go.
