Take a close look at this clean El Camino Conquista, it's a V8 powered, one family owned, vintage Chevrolet. Is it a car? Is it a truck? GM's Heritage Center has categorized the El Camino as a Chevrolet Truck within their archives. Guess we now know that we should call it a truck, or how about a “ute” like the Aussies? Whatever you decide to call it, this El Camino Conquista is far out!
The Conquista option package offered a few extra interior options, as well as special exterior finishes. This car offers Beige and Dark Brown Metallic paint that is separated by what GM calls the “bright paint break molding” which was one of the options that is part of the Conquista option package. The stylized 'Conquista' decal on the tailgate is the final piece in the special Conquista package. The exterior of this El Camino is in very good, solid condition. There are a few small spots on the paint that have been touched up, but fortunately the paint remains even and glossy throughout. The bumpers are in great condition, including the vertical rubber trim on the bumperettes. Metal trim around all sides of the car is in very nice condition as well as the lights/lenses.
Matching the exterior of the car is the brown cloth interior, or more specifically “Camel” as it was dubbed by GM. The interior is in very nice condition and features a tilt steering wheel, split folding bench seat, and AM/FM/Cassette radio. The bench seat is a main focal point since the interior of the car is so simple. The seat is in great condition, as is the carpeting, and even the headliner.
Under the hood is a 305ci V8, which was one of the two V8 optional engines which replaced the standard 3.8L V6. An automatic transmission is mated to the 305 V8, and interestingly GM only offered the V8's if an automatic transmission was ordered, as well as power steering. Along with power steering, this El Camino has a 4BBL carburetor, factory A/C, and power brakes (disc front). Fifteen inch wheels wear multi-spoke wheel covers, and are wrapped in white stripe tires. Power brakes can be found on all four corners of the car, with the fronts being disc brakes.
This car is “far out” thanks to the vintage looks, V8 under the hood, and one color family color scheme. Speaking of families, the car was taken care of by one family since new and it's condition shows that they took very good care of the car.
