Chevrolet El Camino
The 1984-1987 El Camino dual-purpose car/truck hybrids continued the Malibu body style, even though the coupes, sedans and wagons had already been dropped from the Chevrolet lineup after 1983 in favor of the all-new Celebrity. Built on the same General Motors G-Body platform as the Pontiac Grand Prix, Buick Regal and Oldsmobile Cutlass, the El Camino was quietly deleted from Chevy’s roster after 1987, since it competed with Chevrolet’s own S-10 compact pickup. The last four years of El Camino production took place in Mexico.
This car was auctioned off by RM Auctions in June of 2010 at the Town and Country Resort & Convention Center, San Diego, California.
