Here’s something you may not have known: While everyone remembers the odd car-truck Chevy El Camino (and many may remember its chief rival, the Ford Ranchero), the El Camino wasn’t the only car-truck in GM’s lineup. There was also a GMC version, called the Caballero, and there’s now one currently being offered for sale on Autotrader.
This Caballero is a 1985 model, meaning it came near the end of production, as the final model year was 1987. It’s finished in dark red with a red interior, and it shows just 46,000 miles — although, it’s worth noting that this vehicle has a five-digit odometer, and the Carfax report seems to show that it turned over at least once.
But there are some benefits to this particular example, including the fact that the ad notes that this car has less than 1,000 miles on a new crate engine — and that it’s just had a transmission rebuild, along with other upgrades and repairs. That’s good news if you want a Caballero (or El Camino) that you can actually use and drive, as these are getting harder to source.
On the outside, this Caballero looks surprisingly nice, with a dark red exterior and a silver upper half. Inside, it shows its age a bit more, but it’s still in good shape given the mileage and age. If you’re interested, this Caballero is offered by Main Street Motors in rural Enterprise, Oregon, for $9,999. Find a GMC Caballero for sale
