Murica: 1978 Chevrolet El Camino Conquista

The 5th (and final) generation El Camino was launched in 1978 on a platform shared with the Chevy Malibu, but technically on its own unique El Camino chassis.  The base engine was a V6 (for the first time — previous versions used inline-6 or V8 power) and the styling was sharp and trim…a big improvement from the monster it had become by the end of the 4th generation.  Find this 1978 Chevrolet El Camino Conquista offered for $2,800 in Port Charlotte, FL via craigslist. Tip from Dascpcu.


This El Camino looks like it needs a significant amount of work before it gets back on the road…but the seller claims it runs & shifts just fine.  That typically isn’t the case for vehicles that are parked up to their hubs in dirt…but who knows.
