    I’m looking for an original radio rear support bracket for my 1985 el camino. Even if you replaced your radio it may still be there unless you unbolted the dash frame to remove it. I’ll attach pictures of what I mean. Anyone who has one is like to buy it. Thanks.

    So I got an 87 El Camino a little while ago and it has always had loose door windows. Many people said to check the window guides and I knew both of them were broken so I bought two of them and took apart the door cards and I am quite confused. My passenger side has the adjustment with the...

    I'm doing a 86 el camino. The original color was brown on saddle. My son wants to go with a silver and black combo. How hard and expensive is a color change without a donor car?

    I just know somebody here replaced his bench seat with buckets, and that old bench seat is just sitting around. My car came from the PO with a non-tilt bench. That does not seem correct original, as the spare tire really is not accessible without the tilt function. Did someone switch my seat...

    I just recently picked up an '85 and upon buying it I realized the interior was kind of garabage. I'm wanting to put in some bucket seats, a handbrake , and a center console. If anyone has examples of this done and suggestions for new parts or even possible junk yard searches I would appreciate it
