1985 GMC Caballero: The GMC Caballero was GMC’s version of the Chevrolet El Camino car/truck hybrid. It was called Sprint from 1971-77, and renamed Caballero (spanish for “Gentleman”) when the line was redesigned along with the rest of GM‘s A-body line in 1978. The Caballeros shared its mechanicals with the Chevy Malibu sedan, but had a 9-inch longer wheelbase. Other than different nameplates it was difficult to distinguish a Caballero from an El Camino at more than 10 paces distance. It was largely for this reason that the Caballero never sold near the volume the El Camino did (many never even knew a GMC version existed), but its rarity counts as a plus to many El Camino fans and collectors.
G-Body and Future Classics enthusiasts alike can quickly recognize why this Caballero is one to pay attention to! With only 2,503 Caballeros rolling off the assembly line in 1985, it is not an easy vehicle to find. Low production coupled with the fact that this example has had just one TX owner and only 27k miles multiplies its collectability exponentially. We have checked this GMC out from head to tail and found it needed only a new A/C compressor … which we installed June 2018. Even the original dash clock works like new. This GMC has seen one repaint in its original Gunmetal Grey. Being a 25+ year old vehicle qualifies you and your new GMC for discounts in inspections, registration, and insurance. There are not many vehicles under $20k you can drive daily while they appreciate in value with each passing day.
