CAR SPOTTER: 1987 El Camino

Seeing vintage cars for sale in the summer is always a treat. But I've becomed used to seeing such vehicles in out-of-the-way places like Thompson, or Jefferson, or Rome. This bit of 'real steel' came from a more heavily-traveled location, though - Water Street in Chardon.

The El Camino debuted in 1959, two years after Ford pioneered this kind of copue/pickup design with their 'Ranchero.'





The automobile pictured here is a 1987 model. It was the Bowtie's last attempt at building a 'gentleman's pickup.' Sadly, production ceased after this year.

The owner of this El Camino posted a selling price of $5,000 for their car-based truck. Further information can be obtained by calling: 440-286-8677 or 216-426-1700.

5,000...wonder what the mileage is? Dad's 1986 El C. has somewhere above 375,000. He contributed about two thirds of those; on the second engine (a rebuilt bored .30 over) I contributed the remainder until the onslaught of our children necessitated a vehicle with a backseat. It was, and is, a great vehicle. I got lots of comments about it.

How cool, didn't know your father had one of those! I always enjoy seeing the older vehicles come out during our warm months. A pity that the season doesn't last longer here on Lake Erie.
