Customer Cars – 1982 El Caminos

Customer El Camino’s – 1982

The 1982 El Camino sported a new front end appearance with a crosshatch grille flanked by quad rectangular headlights. New under the hood for 1982 was a 105 hp 5.7-liter Diesel V8, which was also offered in Chevrolet’s full-size cars. Though mileage with the diesel was commendable, it was an expensive option and would eventually amass a dismal repair record. Gasoline-engine choices were unchanged, except Chevrolet’s 229-cubic-inch V6 was now standard in California-bound cars, replacing Buick’s 231-cubic-inch V6.
