1985 Chevrolet El Camino for sale
Current customer rating: (61 votes) based on
This is an original ChooCoo custom El Camino which was converted when new to the SS type appearance. below is a description of the conversion. Also. more recently it has received an LS1 engine and transmission from a 1998 Camaro resulting in 375 Horse Power.
The engine conversion includes full length Hooker ceramic coated headers and a new dual exhaust exiting from dual side pipes. Also a new 22 gallon fuel baffled fuel tank and in tank pump.
The car has very good power and is a blast to drive getting looks and waves from admiring Chevrolet lovers everywhere it goes. This is a unique chance to own a car specially modified new from the factory under direction from Chevrolet with the addition of some modern Chevrolet Muscle.
All Choo Choo Customs El Caminos received a driver's door jam Re-Certification decal which listed that particular vehicle's sequential build number. year code. and the last six numbers of the vehicles VIN. Note: A reproduction Re-Certification decal is offered for sale online; it is a poor re-make of the original. so when buying an El Camino that is represented as a real Choo Choo. inspect the decal thoroughly to make sure it is original.
1983 was the year with the fewest Choo Choo El Caminos produced (approximately 22 units or less). Choo Choo Customs continued to sell their El Camino conversion parts for several years after El Camino production ended. Choo Choo went out of business in the mid 2000s. At that time. Honest Charley's Speed Shop (also based out of Chattanooga . TN ) assumed a portion of Choo Choo's employees and El Camino parts. which they still sell today. The original polyurethane Choo Choo nose is no longer produced. but Honest Charley's kept the original mold and continues to produce the nose out of fiberglass.
The following GM RPO options were required on an El Camino in order to be converted into a Choo Choo SS:
-ZJ7 rally wheels w/ white lettered tires
-D35 Sport Mirrors
-V08 Heavy-Duty Cooling
The Choo Choo El Camino SS package included the following features:
-Special Aerodynamic Polyurethane Front Nose
-Special Machine Turned Aluminum Side Moldings (1983 – 1985 only)
-SS Door. Nose. and Tailgate Decals
-Designer Series Door Handle Inserts
-Choo Choo Customs Train Emblem on Dashboard
The following were options offered by Choo Choo that could be ordered on the SS (availability varies by year):

-Glass Moon Roof
-Custom Two-Tone Paint with Hand Painted Accent Striping (1985 – 1987 only)
-Special Cowl Induction Style Hood
-Shielded Sporty Side Pipes
-Roof Airfoil Wing (1983 only)
The car has a new dash gauge unit that is compatible with the LS1 engine and matches the style and appearance of the original equipment but works much better.
Overall condition is very good with all systems working and cold A/C as well. Car is not concours show condition. but is good driver and is a dry clean rust free car. Recent maintenance to brakes and other items within the past year ensure trouble free operation.
