We currently do not own an El Camino but my son has fallen in love with them and would like to get one for his first car. We have found a 1982 Conquesta andthe body is in great shape. The owner is asking $3000 for it. How do you know what the value truly is? Also, are their things we should be aware of in owning an El Camino of this age? What are they things we should check out to make sure we are buying a solid vehicle? We are not ones that can work on cars so we are a little timid going into this. It does not seem that it would need any work soon but we are not sure. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
