Who can help me get an estimate of the value of a 1986 El Camino that is in great shape and has been a one owner car? It has the 305 V8 engine, Auto, AC, power locks, power windows, power steering, tilt, and cruise control. The car has fresh paint and a new interior.
Any help would be appreciated!!! :D
See the post below titled "1971 GMC Sprint value. There are a couple ideas there. You could also check kellybluebook.com

depends of where you live, and how many people want one. It also depends on how many miles it has. It could be anywhere from 3500-6000 depending on those variables.

Thanks for the info everyone. I've borrowed a book on El Caminos from a friend of mine at church. I've also found several for sale on AutoTrader.com. Most people tend to expect more money than what Kelley Blue Book says the car is worth.

The El Camino, and its GMC cousin, is somewhat a Special Interest Automobile, and the "blue books" have trouble estimating the value of Special Interest Automobiles. I frequently browse www.traderonline.com but you have to keep in mind that this is everyone's "asking price", not necessarily what the selling price ends up being. In my opinion, El Caminos have picked up interest in the last two years. Lastly, geographic location in the U.S. really seems to make a difference in El Camino asking prices.

How does the SouthEast fare against the rest of the country in terms of El Camino prices?

How does the SouthEast fare against the rest of the country in terms of El Camino prices?i think it all depends on how many you see around there. there are a few here. i might see another one once a week. Try comparing ones for sale on autotrader that are in your area.

I check E-Bay all the time.
They have a feature called 'Completed Items' where you can see what items sold (or didn't sell) for.
