1985 Chevrolet El Camino Base Description:

This auction is for a base model, 1985 Chevrolet El Camino with a 350 V8 engine and Throttle Body Injection (TBI).Accessories are serpentine belt driven. This El Camino also has a GM Performance parts 4L60 overdrive transmission.A custom made mandrel bent"Y" pipe merging into a GM high flow three way catalyst. An adjustable fuel pressure regulator was added a bored throttle body and the injectors pod contains 5.7 PI injectors. Starterand distributor arenew and for a GM Performance 502 HO. A new heater core and thermostat were installed last month and the cooling system flushed and new anti-freeze installed.

This El Camino was built by me (GM Certified Master Technician), for my Father, using only genuine GMparts.This is a well sorted daily driverand isa California Air Resources Board (CARB) smog certified conversion. You won't find many conversion that are this well thought out, it looks absolutely stock and best of all- that nest ofhorrible vacuum hoses is gone and the often problematic 4ME Quadrajet was also replaced by the latest version TBI ECM and backed up by the best 700 overdrive GM everassembled the MD8 (original equipment in 1993 LT1Camaros and Corvettes). This trans is rare and bullet-proof for this application.

The engine is from a mid 1990s (CARB certified as a 1991 but its actually a'94 or '95) GMC 1-ton truck that was totaled with 4,218 miles on the odometer.I bought the entire truck from the dealership and set the powertrain aside for this project. I finished this project in 2011. It's been driven about 2k miles since completion because my Father's health failed and he passed away. My Mother kept it sitting in the car port for awhile but recently she's decided to part with it.

What it needs: I recently drove this car to and from work for a week and everything still worked as it should; it could use driver and passenger window felts and although the tires have excellent thread depth, plus 90%. The two rear tires are older 2 and I recommend replacing those two. The AC needs a new high pressure hose because I never made one up for it when I converted it from r12 to r134. It does come with a new Delco dryer, included in the sale, and the compressor is also a new Delco part. I did seal the condenser and evaporator so it is ready to be charged once ahose is made up.Needs a new headliner, there's nothing hanging down it's just like every other 80's GM headliner.

Odometer reads 54,647 miles. I do not know if this is the original mileage, I doubt it is 154,647 because the 305 I pulled from the car was still in good condition as was the trans and those engines usually don't go that far without work.

Questions welcomed.
