Chevrolet El Camino

 

History

 

1959-60, 1964-1973

 

 After seeing the success that Ford was having with its car/truck Ranchero that debuted in 1957, Chevrolet offered the new El Camino (meaning "The Road" in Spanish), in

1959. Originally based on the Impala, the El Camino lasted only two years, but reappeared in 1964 based on the Chevelle. The new El Camino shared the

same powertrains, including high performance engines with the Chevelle. SS versions would debut in 1968 and firmly establish the El Camino as a muscle car/truck.
