Re: are 1983 el camino bumpers the same as 1983 caballero
Yes. GM made all Chevrolet El Camino's and GMC Caballero's excactly the same, save for badge and trim packages. You can interchange parts with El Camino/Malibu/Monte Carlo cars and some S-10 trim peices will fit. But all three Cars will interchange interior parts. as for the bumpers, Only El camino/Malibu/Caballero will fit without modifying them. A simple Bolt-On and go.
